Kanye West Agreed to Perform on SNL If They Banned Kim Kardashian Jokes?

According to the supermarket tabloid, “frustrated ‘SNL’ writers,” who allegedly wanted “to join the new fun national pastime and feature waddling/pregnant Kim Kardashian gags,” have “finally found out why producers kept rejecting every skit idea for months.”
It’s all because show creator Lorne Michaels was negotiating with West to appear as a musical guest, explains the Enquirer.
West, alleges a so-called “insider” for the mag, “warned the producers he wouldn’t appear if they made fun of Big Momma.”
Yes, because “Big Momma” is how everyone refers to Kardashian.
Anyway, the supposed source goes on to claim, “Execs kept assuring him it wouldn’t happen, so he finally agreed to guest on the show’s May 18 season finale.”
“But those hilarious rejected scripts will never be aired — and they were priceless!” exclaims the mag’s snitch.
Here’s what’s true about the Enquirer’s tale: Kanye West will perform on “SNL” on May 18.
Here’s what’s not true: Everything else.
A source connected to the show tells Gossip Cop it’s absolutely “NOT TRUE” that West made any such demand.
