An insider said, "Kanye has his heart set on it. And when Kanye wants something, Kanye gets it. Period. He's obsessed with moving to Paris. Kim's mother Kris Jenner is adamant that it's a terrible idea. She's worried. The baby will be born at Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles where her niece and nephew were born.

KANYE DOESN'T WANT 'SNL' TO BASH KIM IN SKITS
Meanwhile, RadarOnline has reported that Kanye West does not want SNL writers to bash Kim in any skits during his appearance on the show next month. A NBC source said, "Kanye as musical guest is a great get for SNL, but of course the writers want to push the envelope and take advantage of it with a Kim Kardashian skit. They have to tread lightly because Kanye hasn't been happy with all the flack Kim's been getting about her pregnancy weight gain."
The source continued, "The writers are pushing real hard for an over-the-top skit and the producers are there to reel them right back in if they go too far. Normally the writers have free reign and just go for it, but there has to be some boundaries when your musical guest is Kanye and he's super sensitive about the constant Kim bashing."
The source added, "They've come up with a win-win scenario where Kim actually gets a cameo at the end of the skit. That would probably make everyone in Kanye's camp - and especially Kim - very happy."
Kanye will perform at SNL on the May 18th finale. Back to top
