Kanye banned from Bond thanks to family feud

Kris Jenner has forbid Kanye West from writing a James Bond theme song.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - whose daughter Kim Kardashian-West is married to the rapper and has a 13-month-old daughter, North, with him - is said to be furious with the 'Stronger' hitmaker after he secretly expressed interest in pitching a track to be used for the next instalment in the spy franchise.

The 58-year-old showbiz matriarch still holds a grudge against current 007, Daniel Craig, after he referred to her family as "f**king idiots" in an interview back in 2011 and has forbidden Kanye from having any involvement with the actor or the much-anticipated 23rd Bond movie unless Daniel, 46, apologises for his comments first.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kris isn't budging but Kanye is still desperate to do it.

"Kim isn't taking sides but is privately hoping he doesn't end up recording the theme."

Luckily for Kris, Bond bosses are said to be eyeing up Adele to record a follow-up to the Oscar-winning theme 'Skyfall' which she penned for the 2012 picture of the same name.

Although bosses will consider Kanye and several other artists if she declines the offer.

The source explained: "Kanye would do an amazing job but if Adele wants the gig its hers."
