Is Kim Kardashian “fuming” over Kanye West‘s supposed crush on Kourtney Kardashian? A report claims she’s going “[c]razy over her hubby’s obsession with her smoking-hot big sister.” But Gossip Cop can debunk the story.
In the wake of West releasing a new song that included a lyric about “smashing” his sisters-in-law, NW contends there is “one sister in particular who’s caught Ye’s eye — Kourtney! And needless to say, Kim is fuming over his [c]reepy [c]rush.” A so-called “Kar-Jen mole” is quoted as saying, “Kanye hangs off Kourt’s every word and is always telling Kim how hot he thinks Kourt is.”
“But it’s so not cool for Kim seeing her husband drooling over her big sister, especially when he’s not exactly subtle about it,” claims this untraceable source. It’s alleged West “can barely take his eyes off of Kourt,” and that he’s been “texting [the] newly-single Kourt non-stop lately” now that she’s split from Younes Bendjima. And with his marriage on “shaky ground,” the magazine’s alleged tipster claims Kim is “slightly worried.”
Asserts the purported insider, “Even though Kanye’s not Kourt’s type at all, the principle of him hitting on her older sister is something she finds gross… Kim’s told Kourtney not to take any notice of Kanye.” The outlet also claims that “rumors are swirling that Kourt might replace Kim as Yeezy’s muse, as she was spied at the designer’s LA office in June.”
What the publication conveniently doesn’t tell readers that is that both Kourtney and Kendall Jenner went to West’s office on June 11. Then Khloe was seen leaving West’s office on June 18, and on the same day, Kim herself was at her husband’s office, too. In other words, there is nothing unusual about any of them being there, and it was reported that West was gifting the sisters pairs of his Yeezy sneakers.
Aside from the aforementioned lyrical reference, the tabloid doesn’t have any actual proof that West is currently crushing on Kourtney or pursuing her in any way. It seems this narrative was only concocted because of the rap line and the fact that Kourtney is the only Kardashian-Jenner sister who is single right now. But the performer has made it quite clear in recent weeks that he is committed to his wife.
Earlier this month, West posted a photo of Kim on Twitter with fire emojis, and followed up with two additional posts that focused on his wife. And on Saturday, West surprised Kim by buying her a Mercedes Benz truck that she had coveted when they recently vacationed in Miami. It makes little sense to allege the rapper is fixating on Kourtney when he’s publicly gushing over Kim and giving her a luxury car.
But NW has been spreading false narratives about the couple for months, including a May story that ridiculously claimed Kim was looking for a new husband. At this point, maybe the tabloid should look for new reporters and reliable “moles.”
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
