Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi claims rapper Kanye West cheated on pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian after they met at one of his shows.
In stunning claims Leyla Ghobadi, 24, told Star magazine that their fling started in July 2012 and continued even after Kim Kardashian had announced her pregnancy after Kanye West dismissed his relationship with the reality star as just “for publicity and nothing serious”.
Explaining her decision to reveal the relationship, Leyla Ghobadi said: “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.”
Kim Kardashian’s representatives have denied the reports.
Kanye West is said to have first set his sights on curvy model Leyla Ghobadi when he saw her dancing in the crowd at his show in Atlantic City in July last year.
And despite Kim Kardashian also being present at the gig in Revel’s Ovation Hall, Kanye West reportedly instructed a member of his entourage to seek out Leyla Ghobadi and invite her backstage.
The rapper is then reported to have invited Leyla Ghobadi for cocktails at AC’s HQ Nightclub, before asking her to come back to his hotel room.
However, Leyla Ghobadi declined, adding to the publication: “I refused, as I felt it was too rushed.”
Kanye West then reportedly asked Leyla Ghobadi and her friends, who had driven down from Montreal to watch his show, if they wanted to attend the concert the next evening, and gave them backstage passes.
And while Leyla Ghobadi admits she knew Kanye West was with Kim Kardashian at the time, she said the 36-year-old rapper told her the relationship was “for publicity and nothing serious”.
After agreeing to accompany Kanye West back to his hotel room after chatting to him backstage, Leyla Ghobadi said: “We began to make out for a while – and next thing I knew, we were both n**ed and having s**.”
The couple’s next reported meeting came in October in New York, as Kim Kardashian, who had not announced her pregnancy at that point, was in Miami.
Leyla Ghobadi even alleges that Kanye West contacted her just last weekend to see if she wanted to meet up, but said that at that point she was fully aware of Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy, adding: “I would never do that to someone.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced her pregnancy in December 2012, with Kanye revealing the happy baby news to the crowd during a concert in Atlantic City.
The rapper said “stop the music”, then announced “make noise for my baby mama right here”, with a wide smile.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had been dating for eight months at that point, but have been friends for a number of years.
In a lengthy interview he gave to the New York Times to promote his forthcoming album Yeezus, Kanye West spoke about his reasons for not participating in Keeping In The Kardashians reality show, his love for Kim Kardashian and becoming a father.
Kanye West said: “I’m the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know? I’m the type of soul that likes to be in love and likes to be able to focus. And that inspires me.
“You know, the amount of backlash I got from it is when I decided to not be on the show anymore. And it’s not that I have an issue with the show; I just have an issue with the amount of backlash that I get. Because I just see like, an amazing person that I’m in love with that I want to help.”
On becoming a father Kanye West said his first instinct is to be protective of his baby – and its privacy.
The rapper said: “I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother. As simple as that…I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.”
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have looked very much in love in recent months as they prepare for the arrival of their first child together.
However, their lack of time together in recent weeks has hit headlines, with the couple’s last outing together coming in mid-May.
But Kanye West was seen making a brief appearance at Kim Kardashian’s baby shower, which was filmed for her reality show, at the beginning of the month.
RadarOnline have claimed Kim Kardashian is “unhappy” that Kanye West continued his plans for a birthday party in New York without her, even though he knew she would not be able to attend.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was reportedly upset that Kanye West celebrated his 36th birthday at a star-studded bash without her in New York City on Saturday.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Kim is so close to giving birth and she’s big and uncomfortable and knowing Kanye partied with all of their friends really made her mad.”
Kanye West celebrated with his friends including Beyonce, Jay-Z, Nas, Kim Kardashian’s older sister Kourtney and her boyfriend, Scott Disick, as well as her best friend Jonathan Cheban at Jamaican restaurant Ms. Lily’s, because he was performing at the Governor’s Ball in the city on Sunday, but Kim wanted him to delay his party and have it in Los Angeles instead.
The source said: “She isn’t traveling this late in her pregnancy but everyone else there could have easily come to Los Angeles, they all can hop on a private plane any time they want!
“Kim totally respects Kanye and the work he has to do, but as her due date grows closer she is getting mad about how little time they’re spending together and wishes that he would try and accommodate her more.”
