Kim Kardashian Riles Kanye West’s Record Label
Posted by Adam
KIM Kardashian is in trouble with Kim Kardashian‘s record label.
Furious executives at Def Jam Recordings, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc., ordered Kanye to have his fiance remove the titillating four-minute Bound 2 video clip from being hosted on her online presence, during which the pair simulate sex.
The video mysteriously disappeared from 33-year-old Kim’s official YouTube page and has been replaced on her blog with a link to the video on 36-year-old West’s VEVO page, RadarOnline reports.
Before the record label controversy, the video had more than eight-million views and had been one of the most watched videos on the web last week alone.
“Whatever Kim or Kanye were thinking, it was a ridiculous decision made without consultation,” a source said.
“Kanye is an artist signed to Def Jam and it is the label who makes decisions about where videos and songs are released, not Kanye — and most certainly not Kim.
“From what the label can gather, Kim totally acted on her own accord. Her decision has cost the label a serious amount of money — and in the process, made her revenue from advertising on her YouTube page.
“Thankfully, the issue has since been corrected and Bound 2 is now on Kanye’s own VEVO page which is where it should have been released, in the first instance.”
