Kim Kardashian wants mom to stay away

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian has reportedly told her mother to stay out of her relationship with Kanye West.

The 31-year-old beauty has been dating the rapper since April and things are going so great between the pair Kim doesn't want her close knit family and especially her mum Kris Jenner to do or say anything that could jeopardise the romance.

A close friend of the socialite told "Kim has been telling her family members, and especially her mom Kris Jenner, to stay out of this relationship.

"She doesn't want anyone telling her what to do or how to act or what to say publicly about Kanye. Kim has said that she knows how to have a strong relationship and she doesn't want anyone else to try and tell her the right thing to do."

'Kim wants to be on charge'

Kim and Kanye - who were friends for eight years before deciding to embark on a romance - have been virtually inseparable since they started dating, with the reality TV star joining the Gotta Have It hitmaker on tour and to Haute Couture Week in Paris, France, earlier this month.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wants to be in complete control of her relationship with the 35-year-old musician and she is determined not to make the same mistakes she did with Kris Humphries - who she was married to for just 72 days before filing for divorce from him last October.

The source added: "Kim totally trusts her mom and sisters, Khloe Kardasahian and Kourtney Kardashian, when it comes to business and relationship advice, but this time she wants to make sure she does exactly what she wants to do and doesn't feel pressured into anything by anyone. Kim wants to be in charge with Kanye."

This week, Kim praised Kanye for making her "feel special" again following her disastrous last relationship.

She said: "It's been tough since the break up of my marriage but I always believed I would find love again and I'm so happy I have. I'm always smiling in Kanye's company and he makes me feel so special." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
