This doesn't look good for Kim Kardashian...
While Kim has yet to address the new cheating claims, a rep for Kanye told Gossip Cop that the “crush” narrative is “ridiculous.” As the website pointed out, numerous media outlets that were at the album listening party made no mention of Kanye’s alleged “flirting” in their coverage.
W magazine, who was at the exclusive event, noted that Kanye spent his night “walking amongst the crowd … And that’s what he did for a majority of the night: just walked.”
Meanwhile, Pitchfork’s brief interview with Candace suggested that she was merely there to support Kanye because of his support for Trump. “Why can’t you say you love Donald Trump? Why can’t you say that?” she asked the publication rhetorically. “He liked Trump before he went into politics, and now he has to shut that off because he’s black?”
“Artists are expected to be liberal, but there is an underground railroad of conservatives in Hollywood,” she continued. “People are worried they will get ex-communicated, and he made people understand that they aren’t alone.”
A Family Affair
Regardless if the infidelity rumors are true or false, there’s no denying that Kanye’s album listening party sparked plenty of drama for the Kardashians’ extended family. While there were no photographic evidence of Kanye allegedly getting cozy with Candace, a picture of Scott Disick — the father of Kourtney Kardashian‘s three children: Mason, Penelope, and Reign — getting handsy with a mystery “dirty blonde, green-eyed girl” at the bash did surface online.
Amid the cheating allegations, it was rumored that Sofia Richie, who has been dating the dad of three since September 2017, had broke up with the reality star. Multiple outlets reported on the breakup, with Us Weekly claiming that Sofia, 19, had dumped Scott, 35, at the insistence of her father, music icon Lionel Richie.
“He said he is going to cut her off and write her out of his will if she continues her relationship with Scott as he thinks he’s extremely toxic for her,” a snitch spilled to the tabloid.
The insider alleged Scott had also cheated on Sofia while partying in Miami, saying the self-proclaimed Lord Disick “He went to Wyoming because of it and was photographed with another girl and that was the icing on the cake for her to break up with him.”
An anonymous source told People Sofia had “confronted” Scott about the photo, while another revealed to E! News that Scott will most likely “spiral out of control immediately without Sofia around.”
“Sofia broke up with Scott after the pictures and rumors of his behavior in Wyoming were floating around,” the insider shared. “She couldn’t take it anymore. Scott has been off the rails recently and is not in a good place. He goes in waves of partying really hard and then will have his good days and it’s just very toxic behavior. It’s very up and down.”
The informant also spilled that Scott “has been drinking a lot” in the days leading up to Wyoming.
“She is relying on her family for support and they are trying to keep her busy. She is spending her time with them and with her close friends,” another source said of Sofia.
“Her dad got to her and was a major influence,” the insider continued. “He told her enough is enough and she deserves better than this. He told her to come home and she did.”
“Thanks for Thinking of Us”
However, despite the multiple reports, Scott and Sofia refuted claims that they ever broke up because one had cheated on the other. Hot on the heels of the cheating allegations, Scott posted an Instagram Story of a TMZ article about the incriminating photos.
“We had no idea we even broke up but thanks for thinking of us,” he captioned the screenshot.
Sofia also hit up Instagram to set the record straight, posting a photo of her hugging Scott in a deep embrace as the two relaxed onboard a private jet.
“Whole,” she wrote alongside a heart emoji.
The model also shared a photo with a message that took aim at the rumors. “Never believe the internet,” she cryptically noted.
According to E! News, the pair had indeed secretly broke things off, but reconciled within a week so as to not make a fuss about it in the press.
“Scott and Sofia did break up for two whole days, and are now back together,” one insider told the outlet, adding that Sofia “never got her belongings out of his house” and was just staying at her dad’s to “clear her head.”
Lionel and her family encouraged the split and are very upset and disappointed that she decided to get back with him,” the source continued. “Scott begged for her back and wanted to make things right with her. He felt bad that he had a drunken episode and made many promises to Sofia that he could make it right. Scott is very good at convincing that he ‘has changed’ or ‘will change’ and Sofia does love him. She believes in him.”
The insider added that Sofia’s dad “does not agree and is very upset with her about this decision.”
Another informant also confirmed the brief fallout to the publication, saying Sofia “was furious after seeing what Scott was up to in Jackson Hole” and had initially called it quits on the relationship when the photo first surfaced.
“She broke it off in the heat of the moment and said she was done,” the second source shared. “It’s not the first time this has happened and its becoming a pattern. Scott didn’t even flinch and knew she would come around. He told her he was just drunk and nothing happened. It was just the booze talking and completely meaningless.”
“He gave Sofia some space to calm down and then told her how much he loves her and wants to be with her. Sofia believes it and is very committed to Scott,” the insider continued. “He said he would make it up to her and show her how much he loves and cares for her. Sofia wants to see only the good in Scott. She really believes that she has changed him for the better and that he wants to stay on track for her.”
The snitch said Sofia — who reportedly has been staying at Scott’s Hidden Hills home since Sunday, June 3 — “feels responsible and that she needs to be there for him.”
“She wants it to work and wants to be with him. By Sunday night she was back at Scott’s house ready to give him another chance,” the source claimed.
