Kim Kardashian banned Rihanna from entering her boyfriend Kanye West's dressing room during his recent London concerts with Jay Z, according to the UK's Sun newspaper. Rihanna joined the 'Watch the Throne' stars on-stage at the O2 Arena, though she was prevented from hanging with the rappers backstage, unless Kim was there to keep a watchful eye over proceedings.
A source close to West said, "Kim is incredibly protective of Kanye and doesn't want any women near him unless she is there - even his friends.Rihanna wasn't even allowed to go into his dressing room without Kim being there". Rihanna was linked to Kim's brother Rob Kardashian in February, though he has since begun dating Rita Ora. The insider added, "It's crazy but Kim knows the attention Kanye gets when he's on tour - and she doesn't want any competition". After the London shows, the newest Hollywood couple jetted to the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Kanye's short film, before heading back to the United States. Kim, 31, later claimed her bags had been opened by British Airways security staff, tweeting, "Very disappointed. Some things are sentimental and not replaceable", before causing controversy by asking, "What happened to the days when you could lock your bags!" British Airways are said to be investigating the incident.
Kardashian probably has nothing to worry about as far as Kanye and Rihanna go, with the R&B singer reportedly dating the New York Knicks star J.R. Smith.
