Amy Poehler is famous for her warm, accessible brand of celebrity—but sources say her boyfriend, Nick Kroll, doesn’t approve!

Now, sources say Nick, 37, and his wealthy family—his businessman father James B. Kroll, is worth $1.5 billion—are micromanaging Amy’s public persona. “The last thing they want is for her to expose them or mock them somehow,” says an insider tells Star. “Amy’s been an open book in the past and hates being the awkward, pain-in-the-butt celeb, but now she wants to keep the ‘in-laws’ happy!”
