Kim Kardashian Slams “Ridiculous” Bret Lockett Cheating Claim, Might Sue

Truth rating: 0

(In Touch)

Kim Kardashian is furious with a tabloid’s bogus claim that she was “caught cheating” with NFL player Bret Lockett.

In a cover story that hit newsstands this morning, In Touch alleges that Kardashian had a “5-month affair” with Lockett behind her fiancé Kris Humphries‘ back.

The magazine prints “sexy texts” purported to be between Kardashian and Lockett, who is quoted as saying she “pursued” him after his brother allegedly introduced them. Their supposed communication also included phone sex and a naked photo.

Even though the two never met up in person (according to In Touch‘s version of events), the “secret fling” and “hush-hush connection” continued even after Kardashian and Humphries became serious.

Except none of it actually happened.

One major red flag?

In Touch prints the alleged “sexy texts” word for word “according to a friend who saw the texts,” even though the tabloid interviewed Lockett himself. Why wouldn’t Lockett just share the texts with In Touch?

Answer: There were no messages.

“The story is 100% not true. It’s ridiculous,” a rep for Kardashian tells Gossip Cop. “She doesn’t even KNOW him!”

Kardashian is so incensed by In Touch‘s fiction, the rep tells Gossip Cop she’s considering legal action against both the magazine and Lockett.
