“CONTROLLED BY A MADMAN,” blares yet another sensationalized cover from Life & Style about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

The magazine claims Kardashian’s friends and family are “deeply concerned” about her relationship with West, quoting a supposed “insider” as saying, “She’s under Kanye’s spell. He’s making decisions about everything.”

Life & Style further alleges that the reality star “secretly hated” West’s proposal, with the so-called “source” sharing, “Nothing about the engagement was Kim.” Um… an extravagant, expensive proposal filled with family and friends is not Kim Kardashian?!

Anyway, the tab goes on to claim that West is “calling the shots about the wedding, the house they’re reconstructing, everything down to what shoes she’s going to wear to events.” And Khloe Kardashian is supposedly not happy about how the rapper is alleging controlling her sister. “She thinks — and tells Kim as much — that she’s her own woman and shouldn’t have anyone telling her what to wear or do,” adds the mag’s purported “insider.” Oh, is that why Khloe was crying “tears of joy” when her sister got engaged to the rapper?

Please. Of course, everyone knows tWest has a strong personality and Kardashian herself admits that he gives her fashion advice. But the couple is happy together, and this story is just more tabloid nonsense concocted to sell magazines. In any case, Gossip Cop checked with a Kardashian family insider, who tells us the mag’s tale is “ridiculous and not true.”
