Well, this is a bit embarrassing for everyone involved.
The 36-year-old rapper is eager for his fiancee/mother of his 10-month-old daughter North to join him at elite parties and meetings, but people keep blanking her.
A source told RadarOnline: 'Kanye is begging people to invite Kim to events or meetings with the cream of the crop in Hollywood, but so many people are refusing.
'He's a serious star that people really respect, especially as a businessman, but they want nothing to do with Kim.'
The 33-year-old reality TV star and her mother Kris Jenner were desperate to attend the Vanity Fair Oscar party last month, but they weren't invited to the posh event.
The source explained: 'Kim is just not welcome at the same places Kanye is.
'Another problem is that Kanye is pushing not only for people to accept Kim but her mother Kris too! That is definitely not going to happen. People want Kris around even less than they want Kim.'
However, the pal insists Kanye, who managed to talk US VOGUE editor Anna Wintour into having him and Kim on the front cover of this month's issue, shouldn't be underestimated by his powers of persuasion.
The source said: 'Kanye usually knows how to get what he wants. Whether it's going to directly to a studio head or the person in charge of an event, he has no fair.'
Meanwhile, Kim and Kanye, who got engaged in October, tethering the knot next month in Paris at a pretty *ahems* low key affair.
