Caitlyn Jenner does not want Kim Kardashian's surrogate to "carry a baby for her," despite a fake news story that was published in one of this week's tabloids and then picked up by an equally unreliable website. Gossip Cop can correct this made-up claim. We're told it's 100 percent not true.
The fabricated report began this week with Star magazine, which asserts, "Because she's alienated all six of her kids through absentee parenting and selfish behavior," Jenner is going to "stave off her loneliness" by recruiting Kardashian's surrogate to "bear her child, using sperm she froze during her marriage to Kris Jenner." A so-called "friend" is quoted as telling the tabloid, "Caitlyn thinks she was a bad father because she wasn't living as a woman, her true self," adding, "She loves the idea of raising a child as the mother she has always longed to be." But Kardashian was "furious" when Caitlyn "reached out to her surrogate," maintains the bogus "insider," because she felt "it's not like there aren't any other surrogates in the world."
Spoiler alert: The article is a complete lie. And the supposed "friend" who's the source of the magazine's story is making it up, too. Jenner is not looking to have a baby with a surrogate, be it Kardashian's or anyone else's. With the exception of the fact that Kardashian and Kanye welcomed a baby girl via a surrogate in mid-January, pretty much the rest of the tabloid report is fiction. Still, HollywoodLife picked up the claim for a piece it titled, "Caitlyn Jenner Reportedly Wants Kim Kardashian's Surrogate To Carry A Baby For Her."
If this sounds vaguely familiar it's because Gossip Cop actually busted this phony claim a couple of weeks ago when it was first floated by the British tabloid Heat. It wasn't true then, and it's no more accurate now. A rep for Jenner exclusively tells us the former Olympian is not looking to have a baby with Kardashian's surrogate or any other woman. Jenner already has six kids, ranging in age from 39 (Burt) to 20 (Kylie) and has no desire to have an infant.
In case there were any lingering questions about Star and the validity of its Jenner sources, allow Gossip Cop to remind you that it's the same outlet we busted just a few months ago when it falsely maintained she and Kris Jenner were hooking up again. Much like that absurd story and sadly many more, the current report about the 68-year-old Jenner wanting a baby via a surrogate is nothing more than fake news.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
