There are certain things new parents should not have to compromise on. If you ask me, they should be able to name their baby how they see fit. Decorate the nursery in any color or theme they want. But above all, it's up to them how and when they introduce their baby to others. It seems that choice was taken away from dad of nearly one month Kanye West. According to reports, grandma Kris Jenner showed Today anchor Matt Lauer a picture of baby North West without clearing it with him first and he is fuming mad about it.
I am usually not a supporter of Kanye’s infantile outbursts, rants, and rampages, but I have to side with Yeezus on this one. Kris totally stepped over a line. Yes, she is a proud grandparent and wants to show off the new addition to the family, but she shouldn't let a total stranger see the images unless Kim and Kanye agree to it first.
It would be different if this were a longtime family friend or relative -- which Matt Lauer clearly is not. Rather, he's just a ratings seeking journalist. This situation was made worse by the fact that Kanye has a beef with him dating back to a 2010 interview where he felt ambushed by the morning show anchor. I suppose it would be the same as your mom showing your precious little bundle to your lifelong enemy or a person you felt didn't really wish you well. "He was outraged and disgusted that Kris showed Matt a picture of Nori and he is now refusing to speak to her," a source revealed.
That said, I don't think Lauer has any hard feelings, but all that matters in this instance is that Kanye does. Perhaps he feels that this person doesn't really wish him well. Kanye probably feels like he is just being a protective, loving dad. A past slight can stay with us and we all know that Kanye can hold a grudge. He has a right to forbid this guy from getting a glimpse of the most important thing in his life right now.
Do you think Kanye has a right to be mad at Kris for showing Matt Lauer a photo of North West?
