Kris Jenner ‘Appalled’ by Son-in-Law Kanye’s ‘Grammy Incident’: ‘He Keeps Crossing the Line’

Not a good look. Kris Jenner is “appalled” by son-in-law Kanye West’s “Grammy incident,” an insider exclusively tells In Touch after the rapper dropped jaws with a video of himself urinating on one of his 21 awards on Wednesday, September 16.

“The family is used to Kanye’s outrageous antics, but he keeps crossing the line,” an insider close to the reality TV brood says. “They are very concerned and Kim [Kardashian] can’t make excuses for him any longer. She’s at the end of her rope. Peeing on his Grammy is just downright disrespectful.”

Kanye, 43, vowed to continue speaking his mind while taking to Twitter with the shocking 8-second clip, following his rant against the Universal record label.

“Trust me … I won’t stop,” he wrote. Prior to that, the Yeezy fashion designer revealed what was grinding his gears, adding, “I forgive everyone from the music industry that is involved with modern-day slavery. Vengeance is only the lord’s.”  

“This moment is going to change the music industry for good,” he followed up, sharing pages from his contracts. “I feel so humbled and blessed that God has put me in a strong enough position to do this … Everyone keep praying … it’s working.” 

“I wonder if Universal [is] gonna call me … I promise I have more ideas … I will not stop,” the chart-topping artist vented. Kanye said what upsets him most is the “hidden fees” and “distribution fees” that “many labels put in their contracts to make even more money off our work without even trying,” noting, “A standard record deal is a trap to NEVER have you recoup.”

Kanye declared he will refrain from making new music until he owns the rights to his masters and is freed from various contracts.

Back in July, his frustrations were aimed toward Kim, 39, and his mother-in-law. At the time, Kanye accused Kim and Kris of trying to “lock him up” and said he wanted a divorce via Twitter. He later backtracked and issued a public apology to his wife.

The couple appeared to be back on good terms in August as he shared a video of them kissing with the caption, “We’re stepping out on faith.”

Despite the drama, Kris has been trying her hardest to maintain the peace in her family. “While Kris isn’t happy with how Kanye’s recent outbursts are affecting them, she did protect him from looking bad on Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” another insider exclusively told In Touch. “There was a lot of urging from Kim to make sure certain footage was never used, but Kris helped too.”

Loose Ends: A Literary Supercut of Sci-Fi Last Sentences

“Tell me,” she said, “about the shadows of the past.”

“Not yet,” he said.

Then she settled down alongside Joseph … alongside the world … prepared to await the awakening. The sky began to change colour, subtly and slowly at first, then faster and wilder than anyone could dream. Beyond the clouds the sun had set, and the light leaked out of the empty land.

“My sunset. And sunset for humanity.”

“I understand,” she said with a smile. And understanding is happiness, she thought.

So they sat together, symbols for an empire that had seen too much death, watching the sunset cool into night, bringing uncountable stars and a promise that dawn would come. Someday.

She was silent awhile. More stars appeared. The wind had gone cold. She thought of the rows of beans and the scent of the bean flowers. She thought of the small window that looked west. “I think we can live there,” she said.

There was no answer but then she had not really expected an answer. She unslung the sonador from her shoulder. It was programmed for guitar. She strummed a few chords. In a short while she was singing, while her feet went blithe in the measure:

Go gladly up and gladly down.

The dancing flies outward like laughter

From blossom fields to mountain crown.

Rejoice in the joy that comes after!

He stopped hesitating.

“You want to know something? We are still in the Dark Ages. The Dark Ages—they haven’t ended yet.”

The words remained in her mind.

“It seems to me that we do not know nearly enough about ourselves; that we do not often enough wonder if our lives, or some events and times in our lives, may not be analogues or metaphors or echoes of evolvements and happenings going on in other people?—or animals?—even forests or oceans or rocks?—in this world of ours or, even, in worlds or dimensions elsewhere,” he said solemnly, leaning into the wind as if he could will the future forward.

Then she grinned. “Healers mend quickly, you know.”

His anger faded. Left behind was a feeling he was not used to experiencing. It was fear. “How strange are the ways of the gods!” he gasped. “How cruel.”

“Don’t be afraid,” she said. “The dead cannot hurt you. They give you no pain, except that of seeing your own death in their faces. And one can face that, I find.”

He stood up and kissed his intended, and forgot all about Walter Strawberry. “Waiting here, away from the terrifying weaponry, out of the halls of vapor and light, beyond holland and into the hills, I have come to—”

“No!” she cried, and thumped him on the chest, then jammed the ring over the knuckle of his ring finger. “This is for life.”

He looked a long time. Behind them the sky rumbled and turned black, another late storm rolling down from the Blight.

“Goodbye and hello, as always. Amen. And all that cal.”

He had said his last good bye. He walked away and he kept on walking.

She would not leave him: “There has been joy. There will be joy again.”

When he stopped at last, she looked at him with eyes that mirrored her smile and she said, “Kiss me again, please. I cannot let it end this way. Perhaps the next tunnel, or the next … ”

And he thought of Markham and his mother and all these uncountable people, never loosening their grip on their hopes, and their strange human sense, their last illusion, that no matter how the days moved through them, there always remained the pulse of things coming, the sense that even now there was yet still time.

The Real Housewives of Jersey (10 x 60 minutes) will provide insight into the lavish lifestyles of a group of housewives that call the British island home as they live it up on tranquil beaches and attend glamourous parties. Filming began this month.
