*In a recent interview with heatworld.com, Kanye West’s’s stepbrother, Hal Carmichael, said the death of Kanye’s mother may have sparked his alleged control issues when it comes to wife Kim Kardashian and daughter North.
Donda West passed away following cosmetic surgery and Kanye has never forgiven himself for moving her from New York to Los Angeles, according to the webiste. Losing his mother has made him terrified of losing Kim and North, which explains his extreme measures in privacy.
“Kanye constantly worries about Kim and North because he knows the kidnap risk is high,” says Hal. “Because of the lifestyle they lead, he has to think about it carefully nowadays. Kanye controls Kim, like where she travels and what she does, to protect her. He thinks the more the public see them, the more at risk they are.”
“Kanye and Kim want to be the next power couple and that comes from exposure,” Hal continues. “Kim being on television is a compromise, but Kanye knows that’s her career and he’ll support her. But Kanye keeps his inner circle tight – with North, she’ll only be looked after by Kris or her aunties. They have a nanny as well, but North is kept around family. Kanye does this to protect her.”
Despite the perpetual scowl on his face in public, Hal insists that his brother shows warmth at home.
“Kanye doesn’t smile in public, but he’s smiling with us,” Hal shares. “He’s a real joker, he’s really witty and makes Kim laugh all the time. When he looks moody, it’s because he’s thinking, he never stops planning in his head, but behind closed doors he’s always smiling…No matter how big Kanye gets, or how much money he makes, he’s still the same humble guy who sat in college sketching trainers onto his books. Whatever he gets, he always gives back to our family, he’s the most generous, kind guy I know.”
