An article about whether Scott Disick and Sofia Richie are “thinking about having a baby” was made up. This fake news story was manufactured to capitalize on the real news about the Kardashian-Jenner pregnancies. And Gossip Cop can bust it.

“Are Scott Disick & Sofia Richie Thinking About Having A Baby After Kylie & Khloe Pregnancies?” HollywoodLife asks in a purported “exclusive.” The webloid claims it “exclusively found out if they’re planning for a kid,” and goes on to allege, “Scott is apparently trying to be EXTRA careful to avoid just that.” A few sentences later, the site asserts, “With three Kardashian sisters currently expecting, Scott is taking active measures to ensure he and Sofia won’t be next.”

So, just how does HollywoodLies know Disick and Richie are practicing safe sex? Well, the outlet cites a “source close to the Kardashian family.” Wait, what?! Why would someone close to the Kardashians know whether Disick and Richie are using protection? And why would such a person go blabbing about that to a gossip blog? It’s absurd. Yet the outlet quotes this supposed snitch as saying, “Scott feels he better be careful, or his new girlfriend Sofia may become pregnant too!” To add to this ridiculousness, the online publication ends its piece by asking readers, “Could you see them getting pregnant in the future?”

Yes, HollywoodLies wants people to speculate on whether 34-year-old Disick will impregnate 19-year-old Richie. It’s lunacy. And the only reason the webloid crafted such a piece is to exploit Kylie and Khloe’s actual pregnancies. Any time there’s a hot topic, the site comes up with related “exclusives.” In fact, there’s a similar piece that’s headlined, “Kourtney Kardashian & Younes Bendjima: Are They Planning To Have A Baby Together?” Noting her sisters’ pregnancies, the outlet contends, “We exclusively learned whether or not the star has baby fever and what her & BF Younes Bendjima’s pregnancy plans are!”

Sure, wondering if any other Kardashian-Jenner family members may also have kids in the near future seems like a rational reaction. But what’s not appropriate is pretending to have such insight. Why would a Kardashian “source” dish on whether Disick and Richie are going to have a child? Why would a Kardashian “source” even discuss Kourtney’s plans with an outlet that is regularly proven to be a fabrication factory? It doesn’t pass the smell test. Now Gossip Cop is told that neither story is authentic or legitimate.
