Kanye West's representative has blasted U.S. tabloid allegations he cheated on pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian, insisting the Canadian model at the centre of the scandal is telling "malicious" lies for publicity.
Brunette beauty Leyla Ghobadi revealed all about her alleged affair in the new issue of Star magazine, claiming her first encounter with the Stronger hitmaker took place after his concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey last summer (Jul12).
The 24 year old went on to suggest the pair hooked up again in October (12), after the reality Tv star had fallen pregnant with West's baby, and defended her decision to go public with the explosive tell-all by saying: "This is going to destroy the Kardashian family. It's bad. It's really bad. It's just embarrassing. But, if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know."
A spokesperson for Kardashian denied the report to Star magazine in the article, and now West's people have shut down Ghobadi's story.
A statement released to Tmz.com reads: "This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources. This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives."
West and Kardashian are due to welcome a daughter together next month (Jul13).
