Kanye West threw out Kim Kardashian's clothes

Los Angeles - Kanye West threw out Kim Kardashian's clothes when they first met.

The Only One hitmaker was so unimpressed with his now-wife's collection of glittery outfits and rhinestone high-heeled shoes that he chucked them away and brought in fashion stylists to help ''update'' her look.

Kim said: ''I was obsessed with glitter, rhinestone heels and the kind of clothes I now laugh at, and he threw them all out. I said, 'Well I'm going to save them for my daughter one day.' And he said, 'Well if it's going to be our daughter, she's never going to wear those!'

''I think he probably thought they were a bit cheesy. I'd never spent time in London or Paris or seen what style was like around the world, so he wanted to bring in stylists from all over the world to just update my look.

"And they brought in things like snakeskin that I'd never seen before.''

The 37-year-old rapper has been branded ''controlling'' around the 34-year-old television personality, but Kim insists his idea to change her wardrobe has made her love fashion ''so much more''.

Speaking to LOVE magazine, she said: ''But to my fans - they saw this new guy come in and clean out my closet and they thought it was a sign of him being controlling.

''But it wasn't that at all. He made me love fashion so much more now because I'm not afraid to wear different things.''
