He and partner Kim Kardashian were recently singled out by President Obama for their opulent lifestyle warping the American dream.
But Kanye West will evidently spare no expense to possess two high-performance armored vehicles to protect Kim Kardashian and their baby daughter North.
Inspired by the President’s Limo One, the 36-year-old rapper has reportedly spent $1.2 million each for two Prombron Iron Diamonds by Dartz Motorz.
It’s the Latvian company that angered PETA for featuring leather interior made from the foreskin of a whale penis.
On the Dartz website, the Iron Diamond is said to prevent kidnapping, hijacking and ‘other problems which can meet rich and lonely lady on the street.’
Two-month-old ‘Nori’ should rest easy inside the super-SUV ‘built to withstand attacks from landmines and rocket-propelled grenades.’
‘Kanye is fully aware that his new family is so high-profile they attract the attention of weirdos and psychopaths,’ a source told the Daily Star.
‘He aims to leave nothing to chance…His priority is to get delivery of the vehicles, especially Kim’s, before he begins his US tour in October.’
The 21-time Grammy winner apparently decided to beef up security for his family at Jay Z’s suggestion.
The Mercy rapper and his partner of 16 months will also reportedly employ two bodyguards and use body doubles as decoys for paparazzi.
The source ominously added: ‘If there have been any kidnapping threats already against their daughter, he isn’t saying. But that fear is clearly in his mind.’
According to Us Weekly, the Black Skinhead hitmaker ‘doesn’t leave North for more than an hour’ and he tenderly ‘holds the baby all the time.’
