This week’s In Touch magazine alleges that Kim Kardashian carried on a five-month affair while she was dating Kris Humphries, the New Jersey Nets player she’s now engaged to, but Kardashian is denying all of it.
The In Touch article claims that Kardashian, 30, had a dalliance with NFL player Bret Lockett, but Kardashian writes in a post on her blog that she’s never met the guy.
"I knew when I got engaged that rumors and false stories were going to start, but this is RIDICULOUS!!!!” Kardashian writes, adding that she’s never “met, spoken to, texted, called or even heard of” Lockett.
“This guy should be ashamed of himself. Calling up a magazine and making up an entirely fake story just to get attention!?!?! It’s just shameful and this guy should feel ashamed and humiliated,” she says of the 24-year-old athlete.
The cheating rumor is one of a few pieces of gossip that have cropped up since Kardashian's engagement; earlier this month the reality TV star also denied that she's pregnant.
“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… don’t believe everything you read. The tabloids and weekly magazines will do ANYTHING to sell copies, and in this case they decided to run a false story, knowing they had absolutely no proof that it was real,” Kardashian said. “It’s disgusting, and I will be taking legal action against In Touch magazine and Bret Lockett."
A rep for In Touch magazine told CNN, "We stand by our story."
