Kim Kardashian and Kanye West do not have a “looming divorce,” despite an entirely inaccurate report by a webloid that has seemingly been making up fake split stories for months. Gossip Cop can not only correct this latest untruth, but also reveal that the site behind these tall tales has not even bothered to fact-check its claims. In any event, we’re told the last article is “false.”

According to RadarOnline, Kardashian and West’s “divorce drama is blowing up.” The repeatedly discredited webloid claims that even though the rapper was recently with Kardashian and their daughter North at a playdate in Brentwood, the spouses “kept their distance from each other.” The off-base site further alleges that West and Kardashian’s “marriage is doomed and [the two] have started to hammer out their divorce details.”

Kardashian will get custody of their kids, North and Saint, contends the webloid’s unnamed (and unreliable) “source,” while West will retain his money after the cost of the supposed divorce. The outlet’s seemingly concocted source bewilderingly adds the non-sequitur that Kardashian has allegedly confided to her “sisters that her sex life is going to sh*t and that Kanye never makes her feel sexy anymore.”

It should be noted that RadarOnline has published an insane number of posts over the course of months that falsely allege West and Kardashian are on the verge of divorce. In addition to Gossip Cop debunking the site’s fake news stories, since the two remain married and neither has filed for divorce, we’ve since learned that the webloid doesn’t even bother to fact-check its stories with the couple’s reps. Instead, it seemingly publishes its inaccuracies without any regard for the truth. Gossip Cop reached out to the webloid’s editor for an explanation as to why they don’t seek comments from the rapper and reality star’s spokespeople, but we have yet to hear back.

In any event, the current claim about a “looming divorce” between Kardashian and West is entirely “false,” says the reality star’s rep. Of course, we’re not entirely surprised the webloid has gotten this wrong because, as we noted, the site appears to churn out fake divorce stories several times a week without even seeking the truth. Frankly, the sheer amount of times the site has wrongly reported their marriage was over is mind boggling but, for examples, two weeks ago the outlet announced Kardashian finalized her “divorce agreement” from West, and before that, it claimed she hired a “top divorce attorney.”

There are scores of other fake news stories, but Kardashian and West’s reps have assured Gossip Cop over and over that such allegations are “not true,” “false,” and “absurd.” Of course, RadarOnline would not know that because apparently it doesn’t care to know what’s fact and what’s fiction.
