Kim Kardashian vowed to be more private following the birth of her first child and since the arrival of daughter North, the reality TV star has been keeping a low profile. While boyfriend Kanye West is said to be pleased the Keeping Up With The Kardashians babe is staying out the spotlight, insiders insist Kim will never end her close relationship with the paparazzi, who follow the star's every move.
Since the birth of North in June, Kim has been spotted out on only a handful of occasions as she dedicates her time to becoming a new mum and while dad West is said to be encouraging her to stop being so open with her life in the media, the 32 year-old won't be giving her pap friends the boot anytime soon.
"Kim is letting Kanye revamp her entire lifestyle right now and she’s loving the changes he’s making, but she is still the same old schemer that she’s always been!” an insider told RadarOnline.
"Kim isn’t going to ever stop secretly texting the paparazzi or the people she knows that can help her stay famous,” the source went on.
“Kanye would be really mad if he knew that she’s doing it, but Kim is still texting with paparazoos and talking to people that she knows will get her side of any story out.”
They added: “Kim knows what made and kept her famous. She isn’t going stop doing what she does, which is stay in the spotlight — and that’s no matter what she tells Kanye.”

The Yeezus star is known to hate the paparazzi, having clashed with them on several occasions and in an interview before the arrival of North made it clear it was his baby's not the Kardashian fans.
"Well, I just don't want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby," he told the New York Times magazine earlier this year.
While the Kardashian clan might be over-joyed at the arrival of baby North, auntie Kourtney has admitted her son Mason isn't too happy that the attention has been taken away from him.
She told E! News: "I think he gets a little bit jealous because he has a special relationship with his Aunt Kiki, and she takes away from that so he's still kind of adjusting."
