The showbiz matriarch - who is also her daughter's manager - only got to see Kanye West's new video two days before it was made public and is said to have told the brunette beauty that appearing topless in the promotional film is ''degrading'' and damaging to her credibility.
A source said: ''Kris went ballistic, telling her daughter this is worse than the 2007 leaked sex tape that Kim made with her ex-boyfriend Ray J, because that was meant to stay private, while this was meant to go public. She started crying, saying how ashamed she was to see her daughter being 'forced into something so degrading'. She's saying that Kim's destroyed all of her credibility.''
And Kim's sisters are also said to have been critical of the video and Kanye's influence over her.
The source continued: ''The family are appalled, because it's just not like Kim. Everyone is blaming Kanye and questioning just how much he controls Kim.
''Kourtney told her she thought the video was disgusting and disrespectful, to the family and all their relatives, but also questioned why Kim did it.''
The family are now planning to urge the reality star - who has five-month-old daughter North with Kanye - to join them for group therapy.
The source told heat magazine: ''They are considering an intervention. They think Kim is really struggling and 'all over the place' since she had baby North. Kim has never let herself be this influenced before when it comes to her image and brand. So everyone wants to go into family therapy sessions - they sit the person down and tell them they are all worried and have therapy as a group.''
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
