West 'unsure about marrying a Kardashian'
Kanye West is reportedly "not really up" for becoming part of Kim Kardashian's family.
The 36-year-old rapper and the 32-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star welcomed their daughter North West into the world in June.
The first-time parents are rumoured to be tying the knot soon, but apparently West has deep reservations about marrying the reality star.
It is said that West doesn't want to deal with the media attention surrounding the TV clan and is focusing on work obligations instead.
"Kanye has the perfect out, he can't marry Kim yet because he is going on world tour later this year," a source told Radar Online. "He loves Kim, but just isn't sure about marrying into the family.
"Kanye thinks [Kim's mother Kris Jenner] will want a big televised wedding. And he's really not up for that. He loves Kim but he hates all the scrutiny that comes from being with her. When the photographers follow him, he flips out."
Kardashian has been married twice before and her union with Kris Humphries was officially terminated in April of this year after a long and public court battle.
Supposedly manager-and-matriarch Kris doesn't believe a marriage to West would benefit the Kardashians' reputation.
"This will be Kim's third marriage, and Kris doesn't think the Kardashian brand can handle another divorce," a family insider revealed. "Kris would be happy if Kim and Kanye never married because he doesn't let her call the shots."
Kardashian tied the knot with basketball player Humphries in 2011 but the couple called it quits after just 72 days. She was previously married to Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004.
West was previously engaged to designer Alexis Phifer. The former couple called off their 18-month engagement in 2008. It would be his first marriage.
