Kylie Jenner is struggling to lose her baby weight, according to a wrong story from the tabloids. Not only is this tale provably false, but it actually contradicts a prior report from the same magazine. Gossip Cop can bust it.
As widely reported, Jenner gave birth to daughter Stormi on February 1. Now nearly three months later, Life & Style is claiming the new mom’s body “hasn’t bounced right back.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Kylie can’t lose all the weight she gained during her pregnancy. It’s been a major struggle for her. She just can’t seem to drop the pounds.”
The purported “main reason why” is Jenner supposedly “can’t resist her favorite foods,” with the specious source claiming, “It doesn’t help that she has shaky willpower.” The outlet’s alleged tipster goes on to contend that during a recent commercial shoot, “All she did was complain about not being able to lose the weight, but then she would call someone to bring her ice cream! She was craving chocolate ice cream, and she got what she wanted.”
Momager Kris Jenner’s alleged attempts to help the situation as her “food coach” are said to be “backfiring.” The questionable “insider” claims, “She’s trying to encourage Kylie, but it’s having the opposite effect. Kylie’s sneaking sweets and treats behind Kris’ back.” A supposed “source” adds to the publication, “Kylie is miserable about her looks. She’s talking about liposuction if she doesn’t lose the weight soon.”
Earlier this month Jenner did reveal that she’d like to lose 20 more pounds, but that doesn’t mean she’s “struggling” with it. And far from being “miserable about her looks,” she’s been flaunting her appearance for some time. On March 1, exactly one month after giving birth, Jenner showed off her post-baby body on Snapchat. More recently, just a week ago Jenner posted on Instagram photos of the midriff-baring outfit she wore to Coachella. She’s clearly not uncomfortable with her current size.
What’s most bizarre about this article is that it comes roughly two months after Life & Style published a cover story that announced, “New Mom Kylie: I Got My Body Back!” In that piece, the tabloid maintained Jenner was losing weight at an “almost unbelievable rate” to the point where Kris was concerned about her “obsessively dieting and exercising.” Now this story essentially alleges the opposite, claiming she’s not dieting enough and Kris is trying to keep her on track.
That the magazine is running conflicting narratives just weeks apart shows it cares about neither consistency nor accuracy. It also indicates the outlet doesn’t really have “sources” and “insiders” with genuine insight. Jenner may have more weight she’d ideally like to lose, as she herself has indicated, but it’s also readily apparent she is embracing her post-baby body for all to see. And while the outlet insists her “body hasn’t bounced right back,” several publications have actually noted that some women on social media are upset Jenner already seems to have a flat stomach again. Maybe the tabloid will bounce back from this obvious flub, but we doubt it.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
