Vogue's controversial Kim Kardashian cover is set to be bestselling issue ever!

29 April 2014, 11:30

Los Angeles - Even though the internet hated it and everyone complained about it, Kim Kardashian's Vogue cover is set to be the highest-selling issue of the magazine.

It has been reported the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is on track to sell a record number of copies justifying Anna Wintour's decision to feature the reality star and her fiancé Kanye West in the April issue of the fashion bible.

A source told RadarOnline.com: "The projections are that Kim and Kanye will likely sell almost 500 000 copies."

The figures are yet to be confirmed, but it's thought Kim's cover could outsell previous issues featuring Beyoncé and America's First Lady Michelle Obama which sold 35 539 and 293 798 copies respectively.

Kim's highly coveted cover didn't come without controversy with many people boycotting the issue, including actress Sarah Michelle Gellar who took to Twitter to say she would be cancelling her subscription following the decision to put Kim - who shot to fame following the leak of her sex tape in 2007 - on the front of the publication.

Wintour was ultimately forced to defend her decision to feature the couple, following rumours Kanye had begged her for months to feature his fiancée on the cover.

The editor said: "As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue's cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn't true."
