The tabloids this week contain the usual filler about non-existent hook-ups between Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush (for the record, pretty much none of the things reported in the tabloids ever happened: they weren’t hooking-up, breaking up, they weren’t planning to elope nor start a family together, they’re probably not even in contact with each other). Add to that, rumours about Kardashian and Kanye West confirmed by her sister this week.
Starting with West, since those rumours were confirmed, Khloe Kardashian says that her sister and the rapper wanted to date each other but couldn’t find the time. The 27-year-old told DJ Sway’s Shade 45: “I know [Kim and Kanye] hung out, but I know it’s never gotten to there. I genuinely think that because we have so much in common, like our families, losing parents and we do have a lot of connections. I think that if they were to go there it would be a long relationship.” So, they only ever got together when cheating with each other on their significant others the Summer of 2010. They slept together, but they were never official.
That said, the tabloids picked up on this easy story and ran with it because Kardashian attended West’s Paris Fashion Week show where the two posed together. OK! Magazine claims the two were flirting the whole time: “Backstage, they were really touchy-feely, and she was blatantly giving him bedroom eyes. Later, they secretly met for drinks at his hotel room.”
Moreover, the source adds, “She tries to say they’re just friends, but no one is fooled. Whenever she talks about him, she gets this Cheshire Cat grin on her face and then quickly changes the subject. [Also] Kim’s still pretty hung up on Reggie, and she knows this will make him jealous. Yet, as soon as her and Kris Humphries‘s marriage went south, she and Kanye were back at it. And this trip to Paris has really heated things up.”
So, back to the yarn about making Bush jealous that made the tabloids last week too. In Touch Weekly has a similar report, claiming that Kardashian and Bush were back together until recently but he was using her for sex. ITW also claims that any plans to make him jealous worked too well, because Bush “dumped” Kardashian for flirting with West: “Reggie never really trusted her. [He's] been telling people that Kim’s disgusting for hooking up with Kanye… They deserve each other.”
In semi-related news, Jon Hamm has reacted to Kardashian calling him “careless” for criticising her. He told E! Online, while on the red carpet promoting Mad Men: “It’s surprising to me that it has become remotely a story. I don’t know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it and that is her right.”
