New reports surfaced alleging Kim Kardashian “exaggerated her fertility for the sake of her career”.
Kim Kardashian, 32, claimed on a recent episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami that medical tests showed her hormone levels were “really suppressed” due to having been on birth control for several years.
“My egg levels came back as a woman that’s in her 50s,” she declared to the cameras.
“I’m concerned just hearing all this information of how every woman is born with a certain amount of eggs, and that number can never be increased.
“Maybe this just isn’t in the cards for me, and I’m freaking out a little bit.”
However, Radar Online is now reporting Kim Kardashian was “grossly exaggerating her fertility worries”, according to a source.
Kim Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West announced back in December that they were expecting their first baby together.
“Kim’s supposed fertility problems were nowhere near as dire as she made them out to be,” a source told Radar.
“Yes, her estrogen levels were low, but she had been on the pill for a very, very long time.
“She was in a healthy normal range though, given she had been on birth control.”
The insider added that Kim Kardashian “absolutely does not have fertility issues like Khloe”.
Kim Kardashian’s younger sister has had trouble conceiving with husband Lamar Odom since they wed in 2009.
“Kim’s doctor assured her that once she had been off the pill for a few months she shouldn’t have any issues conceiving,” the source said.
The website reports that the news may have implications for Kim Kardashian’s upcoming deposition in the couple’s ongoing divorce dispute.
“Kim is going to be grilled over the claims she made by Kris’ attorney at her upcoming deposition, because they believe this goes to the core of their case against her – that’s she’s willing to lie and manipulate the truth for the sake of her career,” the insider added.
“This could seriously damage Kim’s credibility and bolster Kris’s case that he was duped into marrying her.”
The divorce trial between Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian is set to start on May 6.
