Kanye West has praised his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, for using her past sex tape to launch her career in the entertainment industry. While it appears that West is not the jealous type, a question from a photographer about Reggie Bush and his new girlfriend Lilit Avagyan caused West to reach for the photographer's camera.
According to TMZ, West and Kardashian were eating dinner in a Miami restaurant where Kim's ex-boyfriend, Reggie Bush, was also eating. The photographer asked West if he would like to congratulate Bush on the couples recently announced pregnancy. West responded by clenching his teeth and reaching for the camera.
"Kanye West just tried to beat me up," the paparazzi photographer later said.
While these claims may be exaggerated, there was definitely evidence of ill intent towards the question. Kardashian was filming her reality show when the incident occurred. She tried to play it cool while rushing West into a Rolls Royce so the couple could disappear.
The distaste towards Bush may not be solely focused on West. According to Radar Online, she was devastated when she found out that Bush and his girlfriend, who looks remarkably like Kardashian, were expecting a baby.
"Kim is very upset that there are reports out there Reggie has gotten Lilit pregnant," a source told the site. "Kim had pressured Reggie for a very long time to get married while they were together because she wanted to have a family with him. Reggie just thought that Kim placed too much of a priority on her fame and reality television though and he wanted none of it."
The source continued to say, "She feels it is a slap in the face that Reggie would consider having a baby with this woman when he wouldn't with her."
It is clear that Kardashian's jealousy towards Bush has rubbed off on West. While she has publicly gone out and claimed that West is the one, it appears that Bush also held some of Kardashian's affection. Let us not forget that despite dating West, Kim Kardashian is still legally married to NBA player Kris Humphries.
