Is Kourtney Kardashian pregnant with Younes Bendjima's baby? A new report claims she's expecting her fourth child just days after the couple had drama on Instagram. Gossip Cop looked into the claims, and now we can reveal what we know.
According to the Australian edition of OK!, Kardashian is the latest in her family to be "put on bump watch." The tabloid claims the mom of three was "sporting a rounder middle" during her recent Italian vacation with Bendjima. A so-called "insider" asserts Kardashian is "ready for her fourth" child, and "wasn't willing to give up her dreams of having another because Scott [Disick] walked away."
The magazine goes on to contend that Kardashian "initially hoped that her kids would all have the same father," but "changed her tune since getting serious with Younes." An unnamed "source" alleges, "[Kourtney] needs a man who will be both present and sober. With his charming personality and intelligence, Younes will make the perfect father." Disick, meanwhile, is said to be "furious," but the outlet adds, "His opinion won't crush Kourt's joy."
Actually, Kardashian isn't too joyous right now, as she and Bendjima had a public dispute on social media earlier this week. After the reality star posted an Instagram picture that emphasized her thong-clad butt, he commented, "That's what you need to show to get likes?" He ultimately deleted the remark, but People subsequently reported that Kardashian and Bendjima have been having "problems" due to her "sexy pictures." E! Online also reported that Kardashian is "frustrated" with him, and tired of his possessiveness.
Notably, neither publication said anything about the couple expecting a baby together. Additionally, contrary to the claims that Kardashian showed off a "rounder stomach" on their recent vacation, the opposite is actually true. Throughout the trip, Kardashian posted a number of Instagram photos in which her slim torso is exposed with no hint of a "bump."
It's important to also recognize that this tabloid has a history of spreading misinformation about the "KUWTK" star and her love life. In January, OK! lied about Kardashian and Bendjima having a "secret wedding," and tried to dupe readers with photos from other people's nuptials. Then in March, the magazine claimed Kardashian was ditching him and getting back together with Scott Disick. Tellingly, none of those contentions are mentioned in this new piece about her being pregnant with Bendjima's baby.
This track record shows the outlet, and its purported sources, aren't credible or trustworthy. But more than that, Kardashian's own photos, a primary source, show that there is no basis for her to be on "bump watch," and there's no real evidence that she's currently expecting.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
