Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are going to be "raising their babies alone," according to a report. The article contends the sisters have been forced to "prepare to become single mothers as their relationship drama escalates." But is it true?
According to In Touch, all three famous siblings, each of whom are expecting babies next year, are "facing huge problems in their relationships." At issue, claims the tabloid, is everything "from lack of commitment and disinterest to selfish behavior and different priorities." A so-called "family source" is quoted as saying, "It's very sad. Khloe, Kylie and Kim are all going to have to raise these kids alone."
It sounds very dramatic, and the gossip magazine goes on to break down the specific woes facing each couple. For Khloe, who is pregnant with her first child, a "Kardashian insider" alleges boyfriend Tristan Thompson is "absolutely not in any rush to marry" her. "Tristan already dumped one pregnant girlfriend, so naturally Khloe fears that the same could happen to her," claims this purported tipster, who adds, "Tristan is there for fun but not the full-time commitment, so Khloe will be raising this baby alone."
For Kim and Kanye West, who are expanding their family via surrogate, the aforementioned "family source" asserts the pair is "no longer on the same page in life" and "want different things." The supposed "Kardashian insider" also maintains, "Their marriage continues to be on the rocks, just as it was before Kanye's breakdown [last] November. And with the arrival of their third child, it's only a matter of time until it officially ends." Adds the "source," She doesn't want to raise this new baby alone, but she will."
Like Khloe, a pregnant Kylie is also due to welcome her first child. And similar to what was said above with Thompson, an alleged "Kylie source" contends about Travis Scott, "Now that she's pregnant, she's been putting pressure on Travis to marry her. But he's just not ready." Instead, the publication insists Scott is too focused on his career and isn't showing "behavior of a devoted father-to-be." Kylie "wanted to marry Travis and is upset things aren't going as planned," claims the purported snitch, who alleges, "She's just not emotionally ready to raise a baby alone."
But Gossip Cop already busted In Touch last week for falsely claiming that Kylie was "dumped" by Scott. As we reported then, the couple was still together. That hasn't changed in a matter of days. And there is one big, blaring red flag in this article. The tabloid writes, "Like her sisters, Kourtney is also pregnant." Um, no she's not. Gossip Cop called out this magazine AND its sister outlet Life & Style last week for falsely reporting that Kourtney is pregnant with Younes Bendjima's baby. That is a critical fact to get wrong, especially twice, and it calls the rest of the publication's allegations into question.
If In Touch is being fed untrue information about Kourtney being pregnant or is purposefully fabricating the claim, why should readers trust anything else printed about the family? Furthermore, while the "Kardashian insider" declares the other sisters' love lives to be "in tatters," Kim said she's celebrating her birthday with West, Khloe shared a kissing photo with Thompson, and Scott FaceTimed Kylie during a performance. Of course, none of this is any guarantee the three couples will go the distance and stay together for years to come. But no one can guarantee that.
And when Gossip Cop investigated this report's contentions with our reliable contacts, we were told this is an instance of a "tabloid being a tabloid." Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one said, "They'll never be raising any kids alone." After all, the Kardashian-Jenner clan is quite large, and even Scott Disick is still co-parenting with Kourtney despite their split two years ago. For now it seems all this "single mothers" speculation is much ado about nothing.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
