Kim Kardashian recently revealed on Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she wouldn't be adverse to stripping off for Playboy. But it appears that not everyone is thrilled with the reality beauty's plans.
In particular her beau and rapper Kanye West, who is allegedly "completely against" Kim taking off her clothes for the adult magazine on the grounds that it will spoil the image he is trying to build for them.
Speculating about Kanye's unhappiness, a source told Star magazine: "Kim posing naked is completely against the image Kanye thought they were going for. He's worked hard to present himself as a family man, even going against his better judgement and declaring his love for Kim on her mum's chat show.
"Kanye feels he could lose a lot of face over this, not just in terms of the fashion crowd, which he has successfully become a part of, but also with fellow rappers."
Claiming that Kim posing for Playboy would result in ridicule, the insider went on to allege:
"Soft porn pictures of Kim would be an open invitation for ridicule from his rivals."

Suggesting that Kanye wants to keep the unveiling of Kim's curves behind closed doors, the source added: "Kanye and Kim posed naked for French mag (L'Officiel Hommes), but since she's become a mum, Kanye feels Kim's body should be between just them."
A rep for Kim and a rep for Kanye have been approached for comment.
Meanwhile, French magazine editor Carine Roitfeld has jumped to the defence of Kim who raised a few eyebrows when images of her posing with a baby bump in a series of quirky images taken by Karl Lagerfeld for French magazine CR's Fashion Book.
Speaking to the New York Post's Page Six, Carine said: "I think people are very tough in fashion. When we photographed her pregnant — I love pregnant women — she was beautiful.
"She was beautiful to cover; she is beautiful inside. I think she's happy now. She has her baby, North, and I hope this will be a good souvenir for her."
Meanwhile, she also spoke of Kim and Kanye as a couple, insisting that they are "normal."
Speaking at the premiere of the new documentary film, 'Mademoiselle C', on Friday, she continued: "They are lovely together", before continuing to gush:
"We decided we would do a story about her. Immediately she said, 'Yes'. She was one of the easiest models I have ever worked with:
"She's not a model, but she was pregnant, you know, and I love pregnant women. Honestly, she was very, very nice. She made no demands at all."
