Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian stars in her fiancé Kanye West’s new video “Bound 2,” and upon its release, posted her own copy on her personal YouTube page. Music videos, especially that of a huge artist like Kanye, are big deals to record labels, with endorsement money and statistics and tons of other important factors playing a part in the specific placement of the visuals: typically the artist’s YouTube or VEVO page. Needless to say, Kanye’s label Def Jam was allegedly furious with Kim’s post.

“Whatever Kim or Kanye were thinking, it was a ridiculous decision made without consultation,” a source said. “Kanye is an artist signed to Def Jam and it is the label who makes decisions about where videos and songs are released, not Kanye — and most certainly not Kim. From what the label can gather, Kim totally acted on her own accord. Her decision has cost the label a serious amount of money — and in the process, made her revenue from advertising on her YouTube page.”

The video has since disappeared from Kim’s page, now replaced with a link to Ye’s VEVO page.
