(In Touch)

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have NOT “split,” despite a tabloid cover story from an outlet that has absolutely no credibility when it comes to the couple. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the report, with a rep telling us the rumor mill has struck out once again.

The new issue of In Touch hit newsstands on Wednesday, announcing, “PREGNANT KIM BETRAYED.” The cover alleges, “Kim catches Kanye with his ex,” “His shocking confession leaves her in tears,” “All the details about their breakup,” and “The battle over North.” It’s all very dramatic, and even accompanied by a YEARS-OLD picture of Kardashian crying… on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

But what supposedly happened? In the accompanying story, a so-called “insider” claims to In Touch, “She found messages on [his phone] from one of his exes — a woman he was deeply in love with before he got super famous. Kim went ballistic and accused Kanye of cheating on her.” Oh, how convenient to pin this all on an unnamed (read: imaginary) ex-girlfriend!

The magazine’s alleged source goes on to claim that while West denied cheating, he and Kardashian argued to the point where he walked out and “Kim felt like she’d been dumped — and that she and Kanye have split for good.” As for Sunday’s VMAs appearance, In Touch explains it away by saying Kardashian was only “playing” the role of “supportive wife.” The rest of the story is filled out with details about West’s supposed history with this mystery woman, and the fights over his “betrayal” and other alleged issues.

But it’s readers who should be feeling betrayed. In Touch, the same magazine that infamously claimed last year that West and Kardashian were “over after 58 days” of marriage, is still fabricating split stories to sell magazines. The tabloid’s credibility with the couple was shot a long, long time ago, and clearly has not improved.

A rep for Kardashian tells Gossip Cop exclusively that she and West have NOT split. There have been no secret fights about an ex and a “betrayal,” either. They’re just a famous couple without drama in their lives right now, and so In Touch and its sources decided to make some up. You can now throw this cover story in the trash heap with all the others.
