2017 brought huge news for Khloe Kardashian: She’s pregnant with her first child. Unfortunately, some tabloids tried to exploit that by making up stories related to the pregnancy and her relationship with Tristan Thompson. In October, Life & Style falsely announced, “The Wedding Is Off: Khloe Pregnant & Dumped.”

That line appeared on the gossip magazine’s cover. It was designed to make readers thinks Thompson broke up with Kardashian and left her to be a single mother. As it turned out, the story was partially a bait-and-switch, but still largely inaccurate. In the actual report, the outlet alleged the couple was still together but heading towards a split due disputes over their future. “Khloe wants to marry Tristan and seal their relationship, but Tristan is nowhere near ready to make that commitment. This all happened so fast and marriage is the last thing on his mind,” a so-called “insider” was quoted as saying.

A supposed “source” was similarly cited in the article as alleging, “She’s desperate for Tristan to put a ring on it, but the more she’s pressuring him to walk down the aisle, the more she’s pushing him away.” In addition, the publication further claimed they were clashing over where to live, as well as Kardashian’s purported insecurities over his ex and fellow baby mama Jordan Craig. It was even said that the reality star’s “worst fear” was winding up “pregnant and alone.”

Of course, as Gossip Cop explained at the time, that stood in contrast to the cover teaser, which declared Kardashian was “dumped.” In another sign that this was all a concoction meant to mislead fans, there was the claim on the front of the issue about a “wedding” being “off” while there wasn’t anything said in the actual story about nuptials that were now canceled. It seemed apparent the tabloid just wanted to lure consumers into purchasing a copy by suggesting on the front of the edition that there was a breakup. Since the couple was really still together, the outlet tried to cover itself in the article by claiming a split could be on the horizon.

But the magazine was wrong on both counts. Not only was Kardashian not “dumped” by Thompson in October, but they’re still together now in December and looking forward to welcoming their child in the new year. In fact, Kardashian only confirmed her pregnancy just a few days ago, and did so with a photo of the NBA player cradling her growing baby bump. Clearly they’re still a unit, wedding or no wedding. And while no one can say for certain whether they’ll make it through 2018, Gossip Cop will continue to clarify what’s real and what’s rumor as necessary.
