Kanye West’s cousin seems to think that if the rapper’s mother Donda West was still alive, she probably would not have approved of his marriage to Kim Kardashian.
Kanye’s cousin, Lawrence Franklin, recently opened up to the Daily Mail, and he admits that he’s not so sure that Donda West would have approved of Kim Kardashian.
Here’s an excerpt of the interview:
The pair got together in early 2012, five years after Donda’s shock death, and have since had two children together three-year-old North and one-year-old Saint.
‘The Kardashians do not represent our family values,’ Franklin said. ‘Kim Kardashian made her way to fame through another sex tape and by showing her body – that’s who she is.
‘When it comes down to substance, from the outside looking in – it doesn’t reflect what’s reality to us.
‘Those are industry people, they live their lives for the camera.
‘Everything they do is for the camera. They are always showing their bodies to get attention from the camera and at the end of the day that isn’t real.
‘If everything was gone who are you in the mirror?
‘I’m not personally sure how Aunt Donda would have received the Kardashians other than a good business move.
‘If there was no fame, no fortune and no celebrity status and there was a woman who represented the things that Kim represents, knowing what Aunt Donda represented, she would not have approved.
‘She represented class, dignity and respect, woman power and black power and she loved God.
‘So outside of the industry, Aunt Donda would not have approved of Kim Kardashian – that’s the truth.’
