Kim Kardashian staged-managed another one of her engagements and the whole thing has been recorded by the E! cameras.
This information leaked online, but the Kardashians claimed only friends and family took photos and video, they made everyone sign confidentiality agreements to ensure their privacy, and they were actually suing over the leaked footage. Moreover, they explicitly stated there were NO reality cameras filming the event.
However, one of the guests basically leaked the whole proposal online before Kris Jenner could monetize it, forcing their hand, so E! conceded they’d filmed the whole thing and released edited, high definition footage of it 24 hours later.
After claiming that he didn’t want people sharing in his personal moments anymore, Kanye seemed rather content to let all this fame-whoring happen at his proposal to his baby mother. However, as with appearance on Kris Jenner’s talk show, it turns out there was a trade-off between exploiting him and exploiting his kid.
Kanye “relented and agreed to have his proposal filmed,” says a source, as a “trade-off because he wouldn’t allow North to be filmed in the days after her birth.”
“He will have the final say on the edit,” adds the source, “as to what is shown and how it is portrayed. But make no mistake, the proposal was a made-for-television moment. It was borderline theatrical.”
“Kanye considers it one just a handful of cameos that he will make on the show,” the source claims.
Apparently, Kris nor Kim has emotionally blackmailed Kanye into a wedding special, yet, “But I’d imagine there might be some trepidation given her second wedding to Kris Humphries was followed by their split — and it all aired as a special on E!”
And since Kim didn’t lie enough about being over 30 and wanting a “fairytale wedding” to Kris Humphries, her second husband, she’ll go all out like the woman-child she is the THIRD time. “Kanye is urging Kim to plan her dream wedding,” the source said. “It is not going to be a quiet affair. It will be lavish beyond belief. Kim will have several dresses and Kanye wants her to be wearing some of the top designers from around the world.”
