Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West fighting over his weight? That’s a claim that randomly surfaced this week. Now Gossip Cop can reveal whether it really has any weight to it.

In a so-called “exclusive,” OK! blares, “Kim & Kanye Are At Their Breaking Point — Kardashian’s Ultimatum To West Exposed!” On its website, the tabloid explains that while she’s “looking as slim as ever thanks to her new weight loss plan, Yeezy is packing on the pounds, much to her dismay!” A supposed “source” is quoted as saying, “She has finally confessed to hubby Kanye West she finds his portly moob-riddled body a total turn-off.”

Uh, not only is “portly moob-riddled body” one of the most unnatural phrases Gossip Cop has ever heard, but what real person would say “hubby Kanye West” in conversation? Broadening its claims, the magazine further cites its alleged tipster, who says, “Kim’s really worried about his health and knew hitting his ego would be the only way to get through to him. Kanye’s so unfit at the moment and gets out of breath just walking up the stairs at Kris’s. Kim’s tried everything to get him into a fitness routine, but he never sticks with it.”

“She knew it was going to hurt him, but she straight up told him his body was a turn-off for her,” continues the snitch, who unbelievably adds, “She even put the boot in by making sure he caught her watching Reggie Bush be interviewed on ‘The Rich Eisen Show.’” Right.

OK! seems to have a fixation on the Kardashian family and weight. Just last week, Gossip Cop busted the magazine for falsely claiming Kendall Jenner was on a liquid-only diet to stay thin. And before that, we debunked a story wrongly alleging Kris Jenner was pressuring boyfriend Corey Gamble to lose weight.

Like those body-focused pieces, this new one centered on Kardashian and West is similarly untrue. Though the rapper actually flaunted his bulging biceps in a muscle tank earlier this year, Gossip Cop is told that Kardashian loves her husband just the way he is regardless. Yep, the OK! story has no weight to it all.
