Ghobadi, a Canadian model, claims that Kanye West cheated on wife Kim Kardashian twice, including once after she had already gotten pregnant. She said Kanye told her the relationship with Kim was “just for publicity” and an attempt to “increase his fan base.”
Kanye tried to hook up with her again last week, Leyla claims, but knowing now that Kim is pregnant she says she shot him down.
“I would never do that to someone,” she said.
But there is serious doubt being cast on Ghobadi’s claims. She had reportedly been shopping around her inside information for some time before Star finally published an interview. The New York Daily News notes that the tabloid failed to give her a lie detector or even check that text messages she claimed came from Kanye actually existed.
A rep for Kim Kardashian denied the allegation, and another representative for Kanye called Leyla’s claims just a bid for attention.
“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,” the rep said, adding,“This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives.”
Leyla Ghobadi said she was expecting some blowback from exposing the affair with Kanye West, but said Kim Kardashian deserves to know the truth about her man.
“This is going to destroy the Kardashian family,” Ghobadi told Star magazine. “It’s bad. It’s really bad. It’s just embarrassing. But if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know.”
There could be another reason for outing the affair. Star reportedly paid Leyla Ghobadi $20,000 for sharing her story.
