The rapper, who allegedly refuses to watch the infamous tape, reportedly lost his cool and went "crazy" when his friends began teasing him about it, according to OK! Magazine.
"For all his bad-boy image, he's quite old-fashioned and [while they were still just friends] he thought it inappropriate to view Kim's tape. Now that they are a couple, there's no way Kanye's ever going to look at it," a source told OK!
"When some of his buddies were teasing him about it over a few beers just recently, he went crazy and told them in no uncertain terms that the subject was completely off limits. At first they thought he was joking, but he was deadly serious. Kanye never, ever wants to see the tape, and he has banned anyone in his entourage from even talking about it," the insider explained.
Kardashian, who rose to stardom in 2007 following the release of the tape, has previously spoken about the humiliation and the struggles that stemmed from its release.
"I'm not naive to that fact, that that's pretty much how I was introduced to the world," Kardashian recently told Oprah Winfrey when asked if the sex tape helped her career.
"It was a negative way, so I felt like I really had to work ten times harder to get people to see the real me," she said.
Kardashian's former boyfriend Ray-J, who was also featured in the sex tape, recently mocked the reality star after she tweeted about her controversial past.
"U wouldn't be who u are today, u wouldn't have the depth, maturity, & the insight were it not for those challenges that forced u to grow," Kim tweeted on Wednesday adding: "Keep your life in a positive perspective. We are not defined by our pasts."
Ray J, who previously denied leaking the tape to the public, responded with "LOL," which is short for "laugh out loud."
The sex tape is not the only thing that is upsetting West, 34. New reports suggest that Kardashian's ongoing divorce from estranged husband Kris Humphries is frustrating for the rapper.
"Kanye's not a patient man. He's used to getting what he wants – so Kim runs the risk that he will tire of waiting for her and move on," a source told Life & Style magazine, adding that the entire divorce debacle is "driving him crazy."
