A new report claiming Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are fighting over a third baby is fake news. Gossip Cop has confirmed the story has no merit. In fact, far from being on the outs, the couple is currently on a trip to Japan.
But on Monday, RadarOnline is blaring, “Kim Kardashian & Kanye West At WAR Over Baby #3.” According to the accompanying story, the reality star’s “desperate attempt to keep her marriage intact by getting pregnant again is failing miserably,” and now “this might be the final straw for Kimye.” The site alleges Kardashian has been “desperate to expand her family, at the expense of her marriage,” and while she’s been open on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” about her fertility struggles, she’s allegedly been “hiding the strife it caused in her marriage.”
“Tensions mounted in Kardashian’s marriage as her obsession with a new baby grew,” claims the webloid, which quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Kim can only think about having another baby but Kanye isn’t nearly as obsessed as she is. It is driving them apart.” And, the outlet insists their relationship is “strained,” despite recently going on “vacation for West’s birthday.”
Asserts the publication’s purported tipster, “Kanye is hardly around. He leaves the house for long periods during the day. They’re not spending any time together.” Well, this source can’t really be in the know if he or she is unaware that West and Kardashian are currently together in Tokyo. She’s even been documenting their outings on Snapchat.
That makes the timing of these claims rather bizarre and questionable, and they come only days after RadarOnline twisted that aforementioned birthday vacation into a trip for Kardashian and West to “save their marriage.” The site now asks, “Do you think Kim’s baby obsession will wreck her marriage?” In truth, the webloid has an obsession with portraying the stars as a couple on the brink of a split.
And this particular angle has been used at least twice before. In 2015, right after Saint was born, the outlet maintained Kardashian and West were fighting over having a third child. Much more recently, in April, the publication insisted Kardashian and West were “at war over baby #3.” Sound familiar? That exact phrase is being used again now.
At every turn, the site claims there’s drama, but often recycles the same untrue allegations. In contrast, time has proven Gossip Cop right as we’ve consistently and accurately reported that Kardashian and West are fine, and not at odds over having a third child. Now once again, a rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop the webloid has published a “false” article.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
