Leyla Ghobadi, 24, a sometime model and spa employee, made the accusation in a tabloid interview, claiming she had sex with the rapper twice while Kim has been pregnant.
Even more damning is what Ghobadi claimed West, 36. told her. He reportedly said his relationship with Kardashian was “just for publicity purposes.”
But that hardly seems possible since Kim is having his baby, and the publicity about their relationship has done him more harm than good. On the other hand, West and Kardashian have spent a lot of time apart, when it doesn’t seem to be totally necessary. And he’s adamant about staying out of her reality show circus.
West’s reps also issued a strong denial: “This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit,” a rep said in a prepared statement released to the news media. “This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives.”
Ghobadi, however, has at least one clear connection to the rapper. She has a backstage photograph with him from one of his shows. While West probably posed with a dozen or more people, no one gets invited backstage to get that close to an artist without a reason.
Could Kanye have been scoping out possible bed-mates, as Ghobadi claims. It’s entirely possible and not beyond the realm of tour behavior.
But it just so happens that Kim was in the building the same night. West would have to be particularly audacious to try something like that under her nose. His reps say that he and Kim left the venue together.
Without more evidence, it’s just another sleazy tabloid story. To keep up with all the latest developments in this story, follow TheImproper on Twitter.
