Kim Kardashian does NOT secretly “hate” her new blonde look nor did Kanye West force his wife to dye her hair. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this rumor, which was started by a tabloid that has a history of getting stories wrong about Kardashian and West.

According to In Touch, even though Kardashian spent much of the past few days showing off her new hair color on Instagram, she really doesn’t like being a blonde. What’s worse, says the tabloid, is that West forced his wife to change her hair because he wants her to look more “cutting-edge.” The magazine then has a so-called “friend” quoted as saying West “controls everything” in Kardashian’s life.

“Kim has little to no say in her style anymore,” adds the supposed “friend.” “He wants her to be cutting-edge with her look, and the hair color was just another one of his ideas.” You know what would be “cutting-edge” for In Touch? Actually fact-checking its stories before publishing them. A rep for Kardashian tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the magazine’s claims are “not true,” noting that it was Kardashian’s idea to go blonde.

It’s not exactly surprising that In Touch got this Kardashian story wrong. This is the same magazine that Gossip Cop corrected when it fabricated a cover story last month about Kardashian hiring a divorce lawyer and absurdly reported in July that the couple’s marriage was ending “after 58 days.”
