Shortly after the news broke that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were dating for publicity, a Kardashian source admitted that Kris Jenner saw dollar signs and had already started monetizing the relationship (the KUWTK cameo… then maybe interviews, photo shoots, a boost to Kardashian’s celebrity stock, a possible boost to her failed music career, fashion & fragrance joint ventures, a spin off, an engagement, a wedding, babies, and product tie-ins).
Well, mercifully, there’s one oft-overlooked voice of reason in the family who’s not excitedly whoring this fauxmance. Bruce Jenner, about whom Kardashian admittedly forgot when considering who may walk her down the aisle to Kris Humphries in her late father’s absence and who Kardashian didn’t bother to inform of the subsequent divorce, says he’s “not that excited” about West dating his stepdaughter.
Speaking at Northeastern University in Boston on Wednesday, Bruce Jenner responded to an audience question about the relationship: “I’m not that excited, but we’ll see. Kimberly and I have had a conversation about them and their potential relationship.”
Sources tell TMZ.com that the former Olympian likes the rapper, but is concerned Kardashian is rushing after her second divorce. Back in February, the father told The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Kardashian’s “next [boyfriend] has to go through me.”
