Kris Jenner wants Kanye West to tone it down a notch or ten.
The matriarch of the Jenner/Kardashian clan doesn't like the the fact that the rapper and husband of her oldest daughter, Kim Kardashian, lets his Twitter fingers go on spontaneous rants and is worried he's starting to damage "the Kardashian brand," according to the New York Post's Page Six.
“His Twitter rants are out of control, and Kris fears that he’s taking the family down," a source told Page Six. "Kris wants Kanye to hire someone to handle all the noise and drama so he can focus on being an artist.”
West has met with several top public relations firms, but none of them are interested in taking him on as a client.
“You couldn’t pay us enough to represent Kanye. He’s too much to handle," one publicist said.
Over the course of the last month the G.O.O.D. Music CEO has gone to battle with Wiz Khalifa, told Puma to take their $1 million offer to Kylie Jenner and shove it, admitted he was $53 million in debt, asked Mark Zuckerberg for $1 billion in investment capital and declared that he is "this generation's Disney."

PEOPLE reports that this is all starting to exhaust Kim.
"It's been a rough week for Kim," a Keeping Up with the Kardashians source told PEOPLE. "She has lots of support from her family though. Everyone knows that Kanye, once in a while, goes on public rants and they are all very understanding that it's exhausting for Kim. It's like a tick that he has. Kim just wants him to calm down and stop. When he starts his rants, it's very difficult for him to stop. When he starts venting, it's like he needs to get it all out," the source continued. "Kanye might seem mentally unstable at times, but there has never been any concern for Kim, or the kids. Kanye just has a problem controlling his impulses. It's not anything that usually affects their everyday life. Their marriage is not perfect, but there are no plans to split."
West seems to realize that his rants are becoming a problem. On Wednesday, February 17, he tweeted about what might be the root of the problem.
