Kim Kardashian just can't catch a break. As the birth of her baby draws nearer, she has been hit with one devastating tabloid headline after another. Now, it seems, there are reports that baby daddy Kanye West is cheating on her ... with a look-alike model. In light of this latest, nasty rumor, the rapper issued the perfect response.
According to Star Magazine, Kanye has been getting cozy with model Leyla Ghobadi, who, in my opinion, is a near mirror image of Kim. The supposed affair started last July after he spotted her during an Atlantic City performance. She says he told a crew member to invite her back to his hotel room -- however, she claims she refused the offer. He then allegedly gave her and her friends invites and backstage passes to the next night's concert and she eventually went back to his room. They allegedly had one other sexual encounter and he attempted to set up many more.
Even more devastating, Leyla says that Kanye is only with Kim to build his fan base. Really? Seriously? He doesn't have enough fans? I am not buying it. These days, copping to an affair with a huge star is the easiest way to become a big star (other than making a sex tape, of course).
For his part, Kanye insists he's been faithful to Kim and that Leyla is just out for some easy publicity. In a statement to TMZ, his rep said:
This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources.
I'm apt to believe Kanye's camp. The timing of this is all too convenient. He may be an egomaniac, but I am holding out hope he wouldn't sink as low as to cheat on his pregnant girlfriend.
Do you believe Kanye cheated on Kim?
