Kanye West went on a bizarre Twitter attack against Jimmy Kimmel last week after the host made fun of his recent BBC Radio 1 interview with Zane Lowe, but after Kanye then deleted his online rant, sources now say that it was the rapper's other half Kim Kardashian that made him get rid of the tweets.
Kim and Kanye are currently in Paris for Fashion Week, finally making a public appearance following the birth of their baby daughter North back in June and it seems like the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty wants as much good press as possible, with sources saying that this is the reason why she made Kanye delete the online posts.
“He is still p****d but it was a decision by Kris and Kim for him to drop it and have him delete those tweets and move on. They are upset with the bad press they received from it,” a source close to Kanye told HollywoodLife.

They continued: “Plus, Kanye is going through a whole court thing, so he needs to be in good spirits and not give anyone the chance to bring him down through stupid fights with well-respected comedy hosts.”
Despite Kanye still allegedly being mad, Jimmy is now over it, the source continues: “Jimmy is over it and thinks it all a bit ridiculous. He will continue to make jokes about the situation and whatever situation comes up from this point, to give a comedian ammunition like this is the greatest compliment ever,” another source told the website.
They added: ”Jimmy is going to have a good time with this for his show.”

Comedian Kimmel, allegedly wants nothing more now but to settle Kanye's outburst on the show in a funny way.
“Jimmy would want nothing more then to settle the beef on his show in a comical way. Kanye is welcomed whenever he would like to come by,” revealed the source.
