Following Kim’s disapproval of bodyguard Pascal Duvier‘s firing, Kanye gave her an ultimatum, “He threatened to leave Kim and take the kids if she wasn’t willing do it his way from now on,” the insider revealed.

Further, the reality star has been living a lie since marrying the TLOP rapper, “Kim likes to promote the image that she’s the one making all the decisions in her life,” the insider added. “But the truth is, Kanye decides what she wears, where she dines and what friends she is allowed to see.”

The news comes shortly after In Touch gave an inside look at the couple’s “nasty fights” over children North, 3, and 11-month-old Saint.
