Kim Kardashian is said to be stressed in the final weeks leading up to her due date with a report claiming the reality TV star feels torn between her mother, Kris Jenner, and boyfriend, Kanye West.
Jenner, who has always managed her son and daughters' careers, is said to be intent on making money off of Kardashian and West's first child, particularly by selling the first baby photo. West, who is notoriously private, is reportedly against the idea and allegedly wants complete privacy after the child is born.
"Kim has been telling her friends that she's really stressed about everything. She trusts Kris, and knows that she is only trying to help Kim, but she loves Kanye too and wants to be an equal partner with him rearing their daughter," a source told RadarOnline.com. "For the first time in a long time, Kim just doesn't know what to do— she feels stuck."
Jenner and West are reportedly clashing over everything from where the baby will be born to how she will be raised and Kardashian, 32, who is due in July, is unsure what to do.
"Kris has always been in charge of Kim's life, starting with the sex tape, and now she wants to make sure she makes as much money as possible off the baby," the source said.
"Kim has always relied on her mom to give her the best advice, but now she's struggling because Kanye wants to make sure that they don't overexpose their baby," the source added.
Jenner and West, 35, reportedly first began butting heads after the rapper unexpectedly announced Kardashian's pregnancy during his Dec. 30 Atlantic City concert at Revel. Jenner had allegedly wanted to either sell the story to a U.S. tabloid or use it to promote the family's E! reality TV show.
"Kanye broke the news at Revel because there was discussion of E! announcing it or shopping the announcement to timed the premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians," a source previously told OK! Magazine.
"And Kanye made it pretty clear that he wants to take a cue from [his good friends] Beyonce and Jay-Z and really keep a lot of their personal life private. He announced this on his own to show Kris and everyone else that it's his family, and he doesn't want to sell anything," the source continued.
Kardashian confirmed the pregnancy news the following day in a blog post and while she too is said to be open to cashing in on her baby, the reality TV star is reportedly also conscious about keeping West happy.
"[Kris'] been waiting for this news for a long time. Kim and her mom are already seeing how they can cash in by marketing baby products with weight loss endorsements when Kim wants to get back into shape after her pregnancy," the source said. However, they added "[Kim's] been trying to keep her personal life private since last year."
