Kim Kardashian is reportedly "mortified" by the reaction to her appearance in Kanye West's music video.
The blonde reality star is seen topless on a motorbike in the promo to accompany her fiancé's track Bound 2.
Close friends of Kardashian say she hoped the clip would be seen as creative but the 33-year-old beauty is instead embarrassed by the attention surrounding it.
"Kim's in awe of Kanye's talent and trusted him that the scenes would look tasteful and artistic. But she was mortified at people's reactions - she felt so exposed," a source told British magazine Closer.
"However, Kanye says he expected the video to cause controversy and insists there's no such thing as bad press."
It isn't just Kardashian who is allegedly saddened by the scenes. Her sisters Kourtney and Khloé are also said to be stunned at their sibling's decision to bare her chest. They are thought to have questioned how it will effect her and West's five-month-old daughter North when she's older.
"Kourtney and Khloé were shocked when they first saw the video. They couldn't believe Kim would agree to do something so steamy. The girls know how much embarrassment Kim's sex tape caused her," the insider added.
"After becoming a mum, they thought she'd have more sense than to do something like this. They asked Kim how she'd feel if North saw the video when she's older. Kim was so upset and told them she felt so stupid for doing it."
