Kanye West, Kim Kardashian reps deny cheating allegation
Kardashian launched to fame after rumors swirled that she and Ray J had made a sex tape, which Kardashian sternly denied existed.

Kanye West is denying reports that he cheated on his baby mama Kim Kardashian, his rep says.
The Grammy-winning rapper, 36, was said to be unfaithful to his reality TV star girlfriend, who is currently carrying his baby girl. A Canadian model has alleged that Yeezy cheated with her twice since he and Kardashian, 32, started dating. The claim infused even more drama into the high-profile couple’s closely scrutinized relationship.
The reports took on enough of a life of their own for the couple’s reps to shut them down.
“This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit,” his rep told TMZ. “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.
“This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives.”
Reps from Kardashian’s camp have said that Leyla Ghobadi’s claims are “not true.”
The 24-year-old model is said to have told Star magazine that she was brought up on stage by West at one of his shows in Atlantic City in July 2012, then had drinks at a club afterward and eventually slept together a few nights later, then again in October, after Kimye had announced they were expecting a baby together.
She also claimed that West told her that he and Kardashian were dating only so he could increase his fan base, TMZ reported.
Well, there are more difficult ways to get famous. Clearly she’s learned nothing from the Kris Humphries sham-wedding camp...
Speaking of Kardashian’s ex-husband, he says he “feels great” now that all that marriage drama is over.
