Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has been accused of faking a marriage and her physique, but a bombshell report in the National Enquirer claims the 32-year-old (who is said to be 5 months pregnant) is faking her pregnancy as part of a money-making scheme cooked up by her mom and manager, Kris Jenner. The report also claims Kim and Kanye West (her baby daddy) may have paid a surrogate carry their child.
"How convenient is it that Kim got pregnant just as she was making a mad push to wrap up her ongoing divorce from Kris Humphries? the source said. "Now Kris is claiming the delay in granting a divorce is stressing and the unborn baby. A fake pregnancy cleans up a lot of problems all at once and garners Kim sympathy. It also would be an insane coincidence that Kim just happened to get pregnant soon after she learned he girlfriend of her ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush -- Lilit Avagyan -- is pregnant. Best of all, for someone who's always cooking up new moneymaking schemes, Kim stands to earn a windfall from her pregnancy." Insiders claim Kim, who is 200 pounds and growing, could earn a whopping $16 million from baby product endorsements, a birth special on E! network and even a post-birth wight-loss deal for a big-name diet company. [...] If Kim is involved in a pregnancy sham, it would be one of the most outrageous schemes ever the source adds: "I wouldn't put something crazy as faking a pregnancy for publicity and financial gain past Kim and her crafty mom. They'd do anything for fame and money!"The report goes on to speculate as to what sort of prosthetic baby bump Kim may be sporting. Perhaps, she borrowed Mrs Carter's? Who knows. To add fuel to the fodder, the tabloid claims Kim was caught enjoying an alcoholic beverage on two occasions -- once last October during a taping of her show and the other on March 17, when her sister Khloe posted a photo online of Kim drinking what appears to be white wine. Coincidentally, earlier this year reports claims Khloe and her husband were planning to pay a surrogate $500,000 to carry their baby.
