For more than a year now, the tabloids have published bogus articles about Kourtney Kardashian’s supposed obsession with Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s relationship. The reality star simply hasn’t been impacted by the couple. Here are a few stories on the subject that Gossip Cop has busted.
When Baldwin and Bieber got engaged last summer, HollywoodLife made up a story about Kardashian “dreaming of marrying” Younes Bendjima after learning the news. The blog quoted a so-called “source close to the famous family” as saying, “[Bieber’s] relationship with Hailey and how peaceful and stable it is reminds Kourtney a lot of her and Younes. Now that Justin is marrying Hailey it’s got Kourtney dreaming of marrying Younes.”
The fabricated story didn’t make much sense, considering Bieber was 24-years-old at the time and has no kids. Kardashian is 39 and has three children. Why would the singer’s relationship with Baldwin “remind” her of hers with Bendjima? The idea that she was “inspired” to get married because the singer was tying the knot was ridiculous. Bieber only has to worry about himself while Kardashian has the well-being of three young kids to keep in mind.
A month later, HollywoodLife ran the headline, “Kourtney Kardashian ‘Jealous’ Of Justin Bieber & Hailey Baldwin’s Love, Wants To Be ‘The One Engaged.’” Again, the unreliable outlet quoted an unnamed “Kardashian insider” as saying, “Kourtney isn’t trying to make any moves on Justin, she totally respects what he has with Hailey. That doesn’t mean she’s not a little envious.” Once again it fell on Gossip Cop to debunk the story, including citing the far more reliable outlet, E! News, which reported that Kardashian was “enjoying being newly single” and is “in no rush to settle down with anyone.”
And just two months ago, the National Enquirer falsely claimed Bieber was “two-timing” Baldwin with Kardashian. According to the tabloid’s anonymous source, Bieber had been texting and emailing Kardashian behind his wife’s back. “Right now, he’s laying it on thick with mushy texts and calls, which Kourt’s finding pretty flattering, if a little intense,” said the tabloid’s “insider.”
The entire article reeked of made-up quotes, with “sources” inconsistently referring to Kardashian as both “Kourtney” and “Kourt,” while also swapping from knowing Bieber’s most intimate thoughts to suddenly knowing how Kardashian really feels. Gossip Cop checked with an individual in Bieber’s camp, who initially tipped us off about Kardashian and Bieber back in 2015. Our trusted insider assured us that Kardashian and Bieber were “just hooking up” and were never serious, and they’re not even remotely involved these days.
