Kourtney Kardashian is NOT "headed for a breakdown," despite an alarming but false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct the sensational story.

"Fears For Kourtney," reads a headline in OK!. The accompanying story begins, "There's no keeping up with Kourtney Kardashian these days." A so-called "worried friend" claims to the magazine, "One minute she's a sex bomb, the next she's a weeping mess." At this point, Gossip Cop must note that no truly worried friend or real pal would be talking about such issues with a tabloid. Still, this supposed buddy blames Kardashian's "bad place" on her latest drama with baby daddy Scott Disick.

"She's been trying to party the pain away, but she's bloated from drinking and exhausted from going out. She collapses into bed and isn't seen until lunchtime," alleges the source. The tabloid's purported tipster goes on to contend, "Kourtney feels like she has no control, and she gets anxious when she has to make decisions. She may be putting on a tough front, but she's headed for a breakdown... [Kourtney is] burning the candle at both ends."

That certainly sounds serious, but it is absolutely a misrepresentation of Kardashian's life and state. The reality star has been through a number of ups and downs with Disick over the years, and through it all, she's managed to keep her head on straight. That hasn't changed.

Yes, Kardashian often has her hands full. Yes, she likes to go out when she can. But the implication that the mom of three is shirking her responsibilities and spending her days wasted or sleeping is completely false. And it's worth noting Gossip Cop already busted OK!'s sister publication RadarOnline when it wrongly claimed last month Kardashian was having a breakdown over Disick.

It's also worth noting that the two outlets are responsible for a ridiculous amount of made-up articles, including one earlier this month that said Kardashian was having a baby with Justin Bieber. (Mind you, in January, Gossip Cop nailed RadarOnline when it inaccurately alleged Kardashian was pregnant with Disick's fourth child). OK! has not been entirely reliable when it comes to this star (and many others). That's something that hasn't changed, either, and this unnecessary fake concern for Kardashian is just not okay.

Our Verdict

Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
