*And now, a bizarre report from the National Enquirer, which is reporting that Kanye West is pressuring Kim to drop her last name and take his surname once they are married.

Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, was hoping for her daughter’s name to become Kim Kardashian-West, but this didn’t go down well with Yeezy, the tabloid reports.

“Everyone at the table gave a thumbs up, except for Kanye,” a source told the mag. “He sat quiet and stern-faced, then blurted forcefully, ‘She will be known as Kim West. My wife will bear my name only!’”

According to the tabloid, Kim left the conversation visibly upset.

“By the end of the night Kim was in tears because all the way home he kept ranting that he was furious about her even considering to keep the Kardashian name,” the insider said. “When Kim fought back, saying her celebrity is based on her famous family’s name, big-headed Kanye snapped that his name holds more weight and respect than hers ever will.

“Kim just couldn’t stop crying because she suddenly realized she’s in for ongoing pressure – not only from Kanye but from Kris, who’ll be livid if she drops the Kardashian name.”

Kim and Kanye got engaged this past October and are parents to daughter North West, who was born last June.
