*Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are reportedly planning to buy a home in London so their daughter can attend school with royals and they can expand their respective careers.
A source told Heat magazine: “Kanye talks a lot about how he wants his kids to attend the same boarding schools as Kate Middleton and Prince William did. He wants them to go to Oxford, grow up alongside royalty and be part of the elite. They’ll be buying a place and love the idea of Chelsea or Kensington.”
Plus, the couple also wants to grow their business empires outside of the United States.
The insider added: “Kim and Kanye see London as the next phase of their empire growth. The US is pretty much a saturated market for them now, but their business people reckon that London could be their new LA.”
Kardashian’s momager Kris Jenner is reportedly supportive of the plan. “Kris is in, hook, line and sinker. She looks at London, sees all the power players of the world and wants to be moving in those circles.
“She wants Kendall to sign to a European modeling agency for luxury label work and Kris is pushing for Khloe to be their UK brand ambassador, giving her time and space away from her marital problems with Lamar Odom.
Meanwhile, TMZ.com reports that Kardashian and West are looking at building an enormous house in Bel Air, Calif., near the $11 million home they purchased in January. They are interested in the property because it gives them more privacy than their current mansion.

*An overseas tabloid claims to have the inside scoop on Kanye West’s plans for his baby with girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
The British issue of Grazia magazine says the rapper wants to buy a tricked out stroller for the baby — with a sound system installed.
”He’s got his eye on a pram with an inbuilt sound system and the 14-carat white gold diamond-encrusted pacifier that Jay-Z and Beyonce’s daughter has,” said the unnamed source.
As for the nursery, ”Kim and Kanye are looking to spend around £100,000,” said the source. ”Kanye wants it to be really cool, with 3D mirages on the walls and a lunar star show on the ceiling.
In contrast, Kim wants to give the baby a ”regal style” upbringing and is basing many of her decisions on those made by Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge – formerly known as Kate Middleton – who are also expecting their first child.
”As soon as Kim heard that Kate had bought a £5,000 crib and pram, she went ahead and ordered the same,” said the source. ”She loves Kate and considers her own family ‘American royalty’. The fact they’re due around the same time got her even more excited.”
DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian have been taken off the air after nurse Jacintha Saldanha (center) was found dead in her apartment in an apparent suicide Friday, December 7, 2012.
*Judging from the comments on our previous story about the prank call to Kate Middleton’s room from two Australian DJs, most of you know that the nurse that transferred the call, committed suicide.
There’s no concrete evidence that the tragedy is associated with the prank call, but it is the assumption thus far.
According to ABC’s Good Morning America and Yahoo! News, DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, have been pulled off the air “until further notice.”

2Day FM hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian successfully pranked the hospital staff where Kate Middleton was being treated for severe morning sickness.
*Nephew Tommy and Rickey Smiley have been the reigning kings of prank calls, but they have been usurped by a couple of knucklehead DJ’s down under.
Two Australian radio hosts may have gotten hospital staff members at the King Edward VII’s Hospital Sister Agnes in London staff fired. The dynamic duo, hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian, at Sydney’s 2Day FM made a prank call to the hospital to see if they could get any information on Prince William’s bride, Kate Middleton’s condition…and were allowed access to her nursing staff, according to Time magazine.
As the whole world knows by now, the duchess is pregnant and struggling with a rare violent version of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum. During the two-minute conversation Greig and Christian posed as the Queen of England and Prince Charles (This is too funny.).
*Usher is looking to score Pippa Middleton as the face – or derriere – of his upcoming line of underwear.
The singer, 32, is releasing his first lingerie line later this summer and hopes that Duchess Katherine’s little sister will sign on for the ad campaign.
“I don’t think there’s a more beautiful, more stunning, more talked-about woman in the world at the moment,” Usher says of Middleton, 27. “I’m going to be approaching her in the next few weeks and setting up a meeting this summer.”

Usher says hiring the headline-making Brit is also a smart business move.
“The great thing about her is that she would be a global brand. Everybody knows her now, she would be perfect,” he tells Britain’s Look magazine. “I am sure everybody is trying to sign her up and she won’t be cheap, but she has the looks and the popularity to really establish a new product.”
