Khloe Kardashian accused of photoshopping pic with boyfriend Tristan Thompson
There is seemingly no end to the scandals involving the Kardashian family, and by extension the Jenners too. Recently, however, there has been a noticeable theme running with these celebrity megastars. Not long after it was announced that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were due to have a third child via surrogate, we started hearing rumours that Kim K's half-sister Kylie Jenner was reportedly pregnant with her boyfriend Travis Scott's child, due to both arrive in February 2018.
As if that wasn't enough to get people talking about the sudden influx of future stars of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim's sister Khloe got in on the rumour mill action too. The news broke around two weeks ago when TMZ reported that she would be having a baby with her boyfriend of over a year, Canadian basketball player Tristan Thompson. Neither has spoken publicly about the rumour, but people have noticed Khloe has been wearing outfits that hide her belly when out.
Now, she has posted an Instagram photo of herself with Tristan, which seemed to settle the rumour... at first. Her flat stomach in the photo baffled the fans who believed she was pregnant, but while some see it as proof that she isn't expecting, some have other ideas - namely, that the star either photoshopped the original photo or used an old photo to throw people off.
Fans flooded the comment section of the Instagram post, pointing out that the bump had seemingly disappeared, while some said "she's not pregnant for sure" and another posited: "nice picture maybe not a recent picture though as your hair is longer now. maybe memories from the summer".
Some made accusations that the photo had been edited, writing: "that photoshop is horrible look at his hand and the bottom of her pant leg" and "if you zoom in, what happened to his hand?"
It seems pretty inconclusive to me, but there is another clue that arose last week. Tristan's Cleveland Cavaliers teammate JR Smith alluded to the new addition to the family at a fan event recently, in a clip obtained by TMZ. Tristan was asked about the his-and-hers fur coats he wore with Khloe, but was interrupted in the middle of his answer, as JR joked: "You getting infant fur, too?" Tristan's look of disbelief was telling, as the crowd erupted into applause and laughter.
On her website, Khloe shared some relationship advice, which has helped her and Tristan stay together:
"I think with any relationship the key is to always have respect for one another. There are no winners in fighting. If you win, that means your partner loses, so that's not really a win for you, is it? Be the one to change first. While it takes two to couple up, it takes only one to make things a whole lot better."
Khloe shared another selfie later in the day, but this time the photo was cropped above her stomach, giving us no more clues as to whether she is pregnant or not. But as time goes on, any real pregnancy will have to be announced, so we will have to wait and see...
