Kim Kardashian is reportedly under pressure from husband Kanye West to quit reality TV.
The 34-year-old has starred on Keeping Up With the Kardashians for six years now, along with the rest of her family.
But musician Kanye apparently wants his wife to move towards more A-list endeavors.
“While Kanye would never make Kim do something, he would rather she didn’t star on the show,” a source told The Sunday People. “He wants to live his life in private and he just thinks Kim would be better off doing the same.”
Kanye is said to be tired of living in the spotlight, an issue he has passionately discussed in more than one interview. While Kim is loyal to her husband, she is apparently having trouble letting go of the E! show because of her family.
"She is gradually coming around to the same thinking,” the source continued. "But it’s a difficult one for her because most of her family rely on her being there selling her life to the cameras. It is very likely that she will bow out shortly, though the series is still such a massive hit.”
Kanye, meanwhile, wants to make a move onto the big screen. The rapper is reportedly looking into starring in a movie and thinks he would be a natural.
“He really wants to make a name for himself as a comedic actor. He thinks he’s a very funny guy,” the source added.
The star is certainly not lacking in confidence, once telling talk show host Jimmy Kimmel “For me to say I wasn’t a genius, I would just be lying to you.”
