Kris Jenner Wants to ‘Ground’ Kanye West for His Twitter Rants

Mama’s not mad, just not amused. Kris Jenner opened up about her thoughts on her son-in-law Kanye West’s recent Twitter rants during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres set to air on Tuesday, March 1, and the Kardashian matriarch was careful to be diplomatic.

“So let’s talk about Kanye just briefly,” DeGeneres, 58, started the conversation.

“I don’t think you can ever talk about Kanye briefly,” Jenner, 60, joked back. “Do you?”

“I don’t think Kanye can talk about Kanye briefly,” the talk show host replied. “Kanye is tweeting like crazy — don’t you just wanna say, ‘Stop tweeting’?”

Jenner smiled in response before acknowledging that “there have been days where there should be a no tweeting law and I feel like I will ground him.”

“Sometimes I feel like what he is trying to say … [like] when he was like, ‘Oh I am 53 million dollars in debt,’ that whole thing, what he was trying to say was that’s what he has done to spend on his clothing line over the last 15 or 20 years or whatever its been,” Jenner expanded. “But it comes out not exactly the right way and people get it misconstrued through the media and then its complicated, what can I say.”

A source recently told Us Weekly that though “Kris loves Kanye,” she “really hates his recent behavior” because it is “damaging the family brand.”

According to the source, the momager is “getting really anxious and upset about it.”

Earlier this month, the 38-year-old — shortly after debuting his new Yeezy season 3 fashion collection and Life of Pablo album —made headlines when he took to Twitter to tell fans that he was $53 million in personal debt, publicly asking Mark Zuckerberg to help bail him out.

“Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw…” he wrote at the time.
