Kanye West didn't exactly want to go on Kris Jenner's self-titled talk show.

Life & Style can exclusively reveal that it was Kim Kardashian who asked him to do it.

"Kris had a mini-meltdown to the whole family about her show and how the ratings weren't great and how they weren't supporting her enough with the show," a friend tells Life & Style. "So basically Kris said, 'Kim, you have to come on the show for the finale.' But Kim really doesn't feel ready to do that, so she begged Kanye to do it for her."

And there's a reason why his interview, which is set to air today, was pre-recorded.

"He reluctantly agreed as long as there was a list of things they could and couldn't talk about and that it was filmed in advance so that he could see the edited segment."

On Kris' show, Kanye, 36, will apparently show the first picture of his and Kim's daughter, North West, who was born on June 15. It's the first time anyone outside of their families and close friends will see the baby.

He also talks candidly about his relationship with Kim, calling the 32-year-old reality star his "joy" among other sweet things.
