Kanye West - a controlling husband?

Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West reportedly wants to turn Kim Kardashian into a "perfect" wife.

West is said to advise his spouse on every aspect of her life, and has even ordered her to stop smiling for photographers when they are out together.

According to a source, West can be very controlling with everything in his life, that`s his personality. He wants Kim to be perfect.

The source is quoted as saying: "In the old days, you`d always see Kim smiling when she was having her photo taken. But now, more often than not, she`ll be stony-faced."

West`s controlling ways are said to have left the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star with a crisis of confidence and she can`t even bear to make small decisions alone.

The source added: "It seems even when he`s not around she can`t make decisions. Kim will call him to check she`s buying the right brand of water."

"She can`t even pick her own nail varnish without checking with him."
