Kanye West was NOT designing a dress for Melania Trump to wear to Donald Trump’s inauguration prior to his hospitalization, despite a made-up webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim. We’re told there’s “no truth” to it.

As Gossip Cop reported, West was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital for a psychiatric evaluation earlier this week, just hours after announcing the cancellation of his Saint Pablo Tour. HollywoodLife is now making the bogus claim that the rapper was secretly working on potential outfits for the future first lady to wear to her husband’s inauguration before the incident. A so-called “source” tells the site, “He was behind the scenes working on sketches and pulling fabrics to design a few dresses and skirts for Melania. He desperately wanted her in his clothes.”

The webloid’s dubious insider further purports that West believed “his line would be an overnight success” if he could convince Melania to wear one of his outfits on Inauguration Day. But Gossip Cop looked into the report, and we’re exclusively assured by a source close to the situation there’s simply “no truth” to it. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to call out HollywoodLife for concocting a tall tale involving West’s recent medical issue.

Gossip Cop just busted the site for falsely claiming Taylor Swift had shared her reaction to West’s hospitalization, but she hasn’t weighed in on the subject. And before that, HollywoodLies flat-out made up a story that West wanted to protect Mike Pence at “Hamilton.” This latest article is another lie from the frequently unreliable webloid.
