Kanye West Buying Anti-Kidnap Cars

The singer reportedly ordered bullet- and bomb-proof vehicles for Kim and baby North.

Kanye West has invested over $1.5 million on anti-kidnap cars to protect his family, according to reports.

The "Clique" hitmaker will spare no expense in ensuring the safety of his partner Kim Kardashian and their two-month-old daughter North, and he has ordered matching bullet and bomb-proof vehicles to travel around Los Angeles.

The rapper has commissioned a $390,000 Chevrolet Kodiak—based on Barack Obama's Limo One—while Kim will be given an $1.2-million armored SUV called the Prombron Iron Diamond.

An insider told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Kanye is fully aware that his new family is so high-profile they attract the attention of weirdos and psychopaths.

"He aims to leave nothing to chance. His priority is to get the vehicles, especially Kim's, before he begins his US tour in October."

Besides the armored cars—which were bought on the advice of Jay Z—Kanye is also insisting both he and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star always have at least two bodyguards.

The source added: "If there have been any kidnapping threats against their daughter, he isn't saying. But that fear is clearly in his mind.

"Kanye is also acutely aware that Kim has enemies who are resentful for her reality TV success and the thought of anything happening to her or Nori, their nickname for North, is his worst nightmare."
