Some conspiracy theorists still believe that Beyoncé rocked a fake baby bump back when she was pregnant with Blue Ivy, and now they’ve set their sights on Kim Kardashian. A Feb. 28 report by MediaTakeOut claims to show photos proving that Kim and Kanye West are faking the reality show star’s pregnancy.
MTO was largely responsible for perpetuating the rumor that Beyoncé used a prosthetic bump to pretend to be pregnant. The theory was that Blue Ivy was actually being carried by a surrogate because Bey didn’t want to mess up her body by giving birth. The story picked up a lot of steam, so it’s not surprising that the website is now making a similar claim about a very vain Kim Kardashian.
The site’s photographic “evidence” includes photos of Kim from last week that show the reality star rocking a very visible baby bump under a tight, black dress. They’re paired with photos taken this week that show Kim wearing a loose-fitting, patterned maxi dress and a leather jacket. MTO claims that Kim’s “belly” is completely gone in the recent photos.
However, it looks like MTO was just being picky with the photos it used to claim that Kim Kardashian’s bump is fake -- in other photos taken on the same day, Kim's bump is visible.
Kim might actually find MTO’s story sort of flattering since she seems pretty desperate to hide her bump by squishing it down under form-fitting clothes. She’s also been reminiscing about her thinner days on Twitter and working out like crazy, so obviously she’s not crazy about the idea about her waistline expanding.
But for those who are already buying the fake pregnancy conspiracy theory, don’t get too convinced -- it will only be a matter of time before Kim shows off her bump by posing nude on a magazine cover with Kanye West’s hands covering her breasts.
