Kim Kardashian is being abandoned by Kanye West for the twelfth week in a row in tabloid fantasy land, but now there’s a new wrinkle. In Touch claims the pregnant reality star fears West is “gay” and has a boyfriend in Paris. Seriously.

According to the mag, Kardashian’s first Met Gala experience was a “nightmare” because “some online commenters” speculated that her boyfriend is “in a romantic relationship with the man who designed her controversial dress, Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci.” A so-called “friend” tells the tab, “Kim freaked out. If it turns out Kanye is involved with Riccardo, she will be utterly embarrassed — more so than she’s ever been in her life.”

In Touch writes, “There are some facts Kim can’t deny,” noting, “Kanye has spent her entire pregnancy living close to Riccardo in the French capital… And Riccardo recently purchased an apartment less than half a mile from Kanye’s in NYC’s Soho neighborhood.” Another supposed “insider” for the mag reveals, “Kanye is obsessed with Riccardo. They have a very deep bond.” The fake source claims, “They spend a lot of time together at Kanye’s apartment.” Wow.

If this “report” wasn’t already absurd enough, the magazine then goes on to allege that Tisci purposely dressed Kardashian in a bad gown at the Met Gala out of jealously over West. The bogus “pal” says Kardashian wonders whether Tisci “resents her and really did want to make her look hideous.” Ah, yes, that sounds like the ultimate revenge indeed! ENOUGH.

This story is so phenomenally stupid and a new low for In Touch, even by the tab’s standards. Let’s get a few things straight here. West is NOT gay and Tisci is his close friend with whom he’s collaborated for years in fashion and for his music cover art. Also In Touch is a publication which acknowledges its bases some of its reporting off of nonsense from “online commenters.” And that’s all, folks.
