Kanye West was not “hitting on” or flirting Emily Ratajkowski at the Met Gala, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We’re told it’s an “outright lie.”

According to the repeatedly disproven Star magazine, West was “drooling over” Ratajkowski, and tried to “find excuses to talk to her” at the Met Gala, all in front of his wife Kim Kardashian. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid that Kardashian “looked so uncomfortable and glum.” The alleged “source” adds Kardashian had a “terrible time” at the ball, and even though it’s generally one of her favorite events, this year it was a “total nightmare” for her because of West’s supposed flirting with Ratajkowski.

The tabloid further alleges that West’s behavior at the fashion ball was the “last straw” for Kardashian, who’s “sick and tired” of his antics. The magazine’s seemingly specious “insider” adds that Kardashian and West “no longer sleep in the same room,” and she’s at the “end of her rope with Kanye’s craziness.”

Actually, “craziness” would be relying on Star for information about Kardashian and West. Gossip Cop exclusively busted the tabloid six weeks ago when it wrongly reported that West and Kardashian were in a “$1 billion divorce.” It’s also the same magazine we corrected for fabricating a cover story about Kardashian being in a “nasty feud” with Kate Middleton. And it’s the same outlet Gossip Cop debunked when it falsely claimed West was making “a movie about his relationship with Kim.” Much like those untrue tales, the latest yarn about the rapper “hitting on” Ratajkowski at the Met Ball is, according to a West insider, an “outright lie.”
