Kris Jenner Gained 72 Pounds? (PHOTO)
Kris Jenner has NOT gained 72 pounds, despite an outrageous tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can debunk the body-shaming report, which falsely claims the Kardashian matriarch has gone from 132 pounds to 204. The tall tale is padded with lot of inaccurate fat.
The new issue of Star hit newsstands on Wednesday with a photo of a supposedly overweight Kris in St. Bart’s on December 31. The woman in question is pictured from the back, with large thighs, butt cellulite, and back fat. But based on other pictures of Jenner on her vacation, it appears that the magazine digitally altered this particular snapshot to make it look like she’s become obese.
The magazine uses the seemingly same photoshopped picture in its accompanying story, with not one other photo from the trip, further suggesting this is an edited manipulation. And it’s worth mentioning that not one other outlet has run this photo, even though it was supposedly taken nearly two weeks ago. Nonetheless, the Star piece announces that Jenner is in “crisis” due the “stress from her family’s scandals.” Consequently, it’s claimed she’s “gained a shocking amount of wight in a short time — and put her health in serious jeopardy.”
“Kris gained about 72 pounds in the second half of 2015,” a so-called “Kardashian source” alleges, claiming she’s “gone from eating a strict 1,500 calories a day to devouring 6,000 calories a day.” The rest of the story is filled out with mean-spirited comments about Jenner’s “terrible” looks, speculation she could develop diabetes like son Rob Kardashian, and sensational blurbs about how each family member is a “source of stress.”
Of course, Jenner looked perfectly fine on “Bachelor Live” earlier this week, and showed off her trim figure in a flattering dress (see photo below). And while the momager may be as busy as ever with her business ventures and her famous family’s highs and lows, she is not in any sort off “crisis.” Jenner hasn’t gained 72 pounds, but it sure seems like the pages of Star are weighted down by a bunch of crap.
