- Twitter: Kim Kardashian
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner is reportedly pressuring Kim Kardashian to marry Kanye West in order to boost her fame status, despite her still being legally married to Kris Humphries.
"Kris Jenner is ecstatic that Kim is dating Kanye; she can see their celebrity stock and wealth rising by the day! She has already told Kim that if they make it down the aisle they are going to do it on camera again," a source close to the Kardashian family told Radar Online.
"You would think most moms would be keen for their daughter to take it slow, especially seeing as Kim's divorce still isn't finalized from the last fiasco," the source added.
The news comes just days after it was reported that Kim's pregnant sister Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick recently signed a $1 million deal with the E! network to get married on camera in Mexico, according to In Touch Magazine.
"They signed a $1 million deal with E! to get married on TV," a source told In Touch.
The couple of five years are said to be planning a wedding at a private estate owned by entrepreneur Joe Francis in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico in an event that could mimic sister Kim Kardashian's lavish wedding to Kris Humphries, according to In Touch.
"Kourtney has always considered Joe's home a place where she can really relax," the source added.
Fans have now begun suspecting the possibility of a double wedding with both couples that could emulate Kim's lavish 2011 nuptials to Humphries which was also televised for the E! network.
Kim, 31, and 34-year-old West are said to be getting "very serious," and are expected to begin picking out engagement rings, according to Us Magazine.
"[Kim] wants to be with him as much as possible. They really know and love each other," a source told US.
Some critics suspect that the reason that Jenner, 56, is so keen about Kim and Kanye tying the knot is because of his fame and status.
"Kris is thrilled about Kim's new romance with Kanye. She loves that they're together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris Humphries," a source told Radar.
"Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere. Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multi-millionaire superstar. His money and fame are all going to benefit Kim now and she's going to have all the perks of being his girlfriend, and her mom thinks this is going to be great for her own career," the source added.
