After putting her longtime family publicist on hiatus, Kim has chosen a new rep for herself at her boyfriend Kanye West's recommendation to "distance herself" Not only does Kanye West help Kim Kardashian choose hair colors, he also advised her to get a new publicist.

Kim first put her longtime rep Jill Fritzo from PMK on hiatus back in August, who still reps her sisters and her family. Now she's officially signed with Ina Treciokas at Slate PR, who counts Sarah Jessica Parker and Owen Wilson as her clients.

"Kim was to set herself apart from the Kardashian p.r. machine and Kanye West advised her to build her own team," a source tells PageSix.

In fact, her rapper beau had reportedly been handling her PR inquires while she didn't have a publicist.

"Kanye is now the boss. He is personally deciding what Kim should and shouldn't do as he tries to rebrand his lady," a source says.

Do you think Kanye's too controlling?
