Kim Kardashian never got pregnant to “one-up” Beyonce, despite a report from a year ago claiming the reality star was willing to risk her health to steal the spotlight from the singer. Gossip Cop exclusively corrected this story when it emerged last year. Time has proven it to be false.
On April 23, 2017, shortly before Beyonce welcomed twins Rumi and Sir, Life & Style published a bogus story claiming Kardashian was jealous of all the attention the singer’s unborn babies were getting. The unreliable magazine went on to say Kardashian was planning to get pregnant with her third child, despite doctors warning her that carrying another baby could be life-threatening.
Shortly after the phony article was published, a rep for the reality assured us on the record the story was completely “false.” The narrative seemed to have been concocted based on an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” during which doctors warned Kardashian she had a condition that would result in a “high-risk pregnancy,” and she’d be putting herself in jeopardy if she chose to conceive again. The assertion that the reality star was willing to risk her life over jealousy of Beyonce, however, was entirely absurd.
It’s worth noting, the tabloid’s report was based on information from an anonymous, untraceable and seemingly nonexistent “insider,” but Kardashian’s own spokesperson told Gossip Cop it wasn’t true. Now that 12 months has passed since the article was written, it’s quite clear Life & Style never had any trustworthy sources.
Kardashian did, in fact, end up having a third child in the year since this phony story was first published, but she didn’t do so through a natural birth. Instead, Kardashian and husband Kanye West welcomed a baby girl in January with the help of a surrogate. Over the past year, Kardashian has frequently explained her decision to have a baby via surrogacy, noting that she and West were eager for another child after daughter North and son Saint, but she knew her body couldn’t handle another pregnancy.
Unfortunately, even after it was well-established that Kardashian wouldn’t be carrying her own third child, the unreliable outlet continued making up tall tales about her third baby up until its birth in January. Shortly before the birth, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting Kardashian would be naming her kid “Kristmas.” In reality, she later named the baby Chicago.
Prior to that, we busted the publication for falsely maintaining Kardashian and West were getting a divorce “before baby number three.” The happy couple didn’t get a divorce either before or after the child’s birth. Clearly, time has not been a friend to the repeatedly discredited tabloid.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
