Kanye West is encouraging his girlfriend Kim Kardashian to lose weight so that she can become the face of his fashion line.
The 35-year-old rapper, who has been dating the 31-year-old TV personality for the past 6 months, wants her to slim down and shed up to 20 pounds.According to OK! Magazine, West wants his girlfriend to follow Beyonce’s grueling Dreamgirls diet as he believes his good friend Beyonce has a better body than curvaceous Kim.
“He even suggested Kim drop 20 pounds, arguing that Beyonce has a similar shape and she proved you can get that supermodel body using her lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup diet,” Contactmusic quoted a source as saying.
“He says he wants her to be the face of his clothing line... but to do that she has to fit into the clothes. It’s really uncomfortable - her shape is what made her name."
“He has a long-term fantasy of turning them into the new Beyonce and Jay-Z power couple, but getting Kim to starve isn’t the way to do it,” the source added.
