Well isn’t this just a golden nugget of a celebrity news story? There’s a rumor floating around that Kanye West might be the newest judge on ‘American Idol‘ — and now, he’s gained the support of everybody’s favorite momager Kris Jenner, mom to the Kardashian klan.

As if West doesn’t have has head on straight when it comes to his career (he is dating Kim Kardashian, so maybe his head isn’t on completely straight), Jenner is just so thrilled with Kim and Kanye’s relationship that she’s using her ‘influence‘ to get him a gig as an ‘Idol’ judge.

“Kris knows this would do wonders for Kim and Kayne’s new reality show and bring in the biggest ratings ever,” said a source to Hollywood Life. “Their reality show would be on a completely different level.” Ratings = money and we all know how much a Kardashian loves her money.

But Jenner isn’t alone in wanting West as a judge on the reality show. ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ producer/creator/Kardashian god Ryan Seacrest, who just so happens to be the host of ‘Idol,’ wants the rapper on the show just as much as Jenner does!

“Kris has been working with Ryan Seacrest behind the scenes to make this happen,” continued the source. “It was actually Ryan’s idea in the first place and he produces all the Kardashian shows for E! So if [Kanye] became a judge on ‘American Idol,’ it would be a win-win for everyone!”
