Is Kim Kardashian really angling for an invite to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding? That's the latest claim coming from one of the tabloids, but Gossip Cop can set the record straight. We're told it's "not true."
According to Star, the "royalty-obsessed reality diva" is desperate to score an invite to the "social event of the century," Prince Harry and Markle's royal wedding at Windsor Castle in May. A so-called "source" is quoted as telling the gossip magazine, "Kim is determined to be at Harry and Meghan's wedding. She's doing everything in her power to [be there]." The outlet's questionable "insider" continues to claim that Prince Harry is a "big fan of Kanye's, so she's having her people reach out and offer to have Kanye sing at their reception, purely so she can be his plus-one!"
The publication's alleged "source" is further quoted as saying, "It's such a dream of Kim's to befriend a royal," before going on to purport that Kardashian is hoping the former "Suits" actress will be "open to a celeb-heavy reception." But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Kardashian, who exclusively assures us the story is 100 percent "not true" and "ridiculous" and that the tabloid's unidentifiable "insider" actually knows nothing. The only remotely factual aspect of the entire article is that West and Prince Harry do know each other, but the reality star isn't trying to get her husband to perform at the royal wedding so she can be his "plus-one."
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Gossip Cop has corrected an outlet for publishing a bogus report about Kardashian and the royal family, and it seems Star is following in its sister publications' footsteps. Remember, in December we called out OK! when it falsely alleged Kardashian was trying to score an invite to Markle's wedding by sending her a pair of diamond earrings. Of course, several weeks have passed an not one legitimate outlet has confirmed that phony claim.
Additionally, inspired by OK!'s tall tale, Gossip Cop went on to bust the often discredited HollywoodLife for claiming to know that Markle is Kardashian's "dream BFF." In that phony narrative, the online publication untruthfully alleged that the reality star was "going all out to befriend" Prince Harry's bride-to-be, but the article was completely made-up.
Clearly, this manufactured angle surrounding Kardashian's supposed desire to strike up a friendship with Markle is popular among gossip outlets, but it's entirely unfounded. Much like those inaccurate stories, this newest tale about Kardashian angling for an invite to Prince Harry and Markle's royal wedding is fabricated.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
