Either Kanye West is a genius or he is out of control.Earlier this week, Kanye West's "epic meltdown" behind the scenes of Saturday Night Live leaked online. Kanye was heard yelling, “By 50 percent [I am more influential than> Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, f - - king Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent, more influential than any other human being. Don’t f - - k with me. Don’t f - - k with me. Don’t f - - k with me.” According to Page Six, the Kardashian family matriarch, Kris Jenner, is worried that "he's damaging the Kardashian brand" and the family has ordered a crisis public relations firm to fix his latest outbursts.
West’s team met with a host of top publicists within the last few months — but nobody is brave enough to work with him. A source said, “His Twitter rants are out of control, and Kris fears that he’s taking the family down. Kris wants Kanye to hire someone to handle all the noise and drama so he can focus on being an artist.” But the response from the p.r. world was deafeningly silent.However, the Kardashians are struggling to find a P.R. firm willing to work with Kanye West. “You couldn’t pay us enough to represent Kanye. He’s too much to handle," a source told PageSix.com. But, a source close the report suggest that Kanye maybe stirring up all this controversy in order to gain attention for his new album, The Life of Palbo and increase album sales. “He’s a provocateur . . . somebody who stirs up the s - - t. He knows how to generate a lot of interest and curiosity . . . He’s an artist first and foremost . . . The whole Twitter persona is a part of his art.”
