Kim Kardashian won't be joining forces with Adidas, alongside Kanye West's new line.

The TV star’s fiancé Kanye West apparently suggested the partnership to the sports giant, who allegedly declined.

Kanye, 36, has just signed a big money deal with the brand, and thought it would be a good idea for Kim to bring out a women's line to run alongside his own designs.

"Kanye suggested the idea but Adidas declined. So he'll have to make do with just one range in the family.

"He's thinking of having Kim model his gear when it eventually comes out," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

Kim showed off her enviable curves this week, flaunting her post-baby body in a tiny white bikini on a Miami beach.

The 33-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashian star gave birth to the couple's first child North in June.

Kanye's collaboration with Adidas comes after his failed partnership with rival sports brand Nike.

During a gig last month, the Yeezus singer told his audience the disdain he feels for Nike CEO Mark Parker.

"Mark Parker tried to son me. Yes, son me, because I am the sun and I will shine bright. And when I don't have as much money as a billionaire, and when I don't have the factories that that dude has over there, what I do have is my voice," he fumed.

Ain't no corporation that can take me away from my voice and I'm going to scream at the top of my motherf**king mountain as loud as I want. Anything I want. Whenever I want. Is that crazy?" he asked the audience.
