Kim Kardshian has succeeded in duping major media outlets, celebrity gossip sites, her fans and practically everyone else into believing that her baby girl was born five weeks early. According to June 15 news reports by CNN, Us Weekly, Fox News, TMZ.com, the Los Angeles Times, the Daily Mail and countless other news outlets, Kim’s baby was born ahead of her scheduled delivery date.
At least, that’s what Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and the Kardashian clan would have everyone believe. But is this really true? Absolutely not – especially if you examine the facts.
Why did Kim Kardashian give the media a fictitious due date? And how do we know Kim lied?
How did Kim manage to successfully pull the wool over almost everyone’s eyes?
One reason most media outlets were duped is because despite widely available information, they took Kim at her word and never bothered to do the math. Let’s take a closer look at the facts.
Was Kim Really Due in July?
Kim Kardashian told the media her baby was due in July – July 11 to be exact. But a closer look at the facts will show that this was not really true.
Kanye West announced that he and Kim Kardashian were expecting a baby on the evening of December 30 at his concert in Atlantic City. When Kanye made the announcement about Kim’s pregnancy, Kim was well past the 12-week mark.
Therefore, at the end of December, Kim Kardashian was already more than three months along. Adding six months to that would put Kim’s delivery date sometime in the month of June, NOT July.
In an interview with Savannah Guthrie on the Today Show in mid-January, Kim confirmed that Kanye made the pregnancy announcement well past the 3-month mark because as Kim herself told Savannah:
“Once you’re past the three-month mark, you’re pretty safe.”
Kim followed that statement by saying:
“I’m due in July.”
Kim deliberately changed her due date from June to July. And there was a very specific and self serving reason why. See Kim Kardashian Changes Pregnancy Details to Obtain Maximum Publicity
Why Kim Kardashian Changed Her Due Date
Kim Kardashian changed her delivery date to coincide with the date that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge is scheduled to give birth to the royal heir.
For publicity purposes, once Kim learned from the official announcement that Kate Middleton was due to give birth in July, she began telling everyone that her due date was also in July, instead of her actual due date of June. See Kim Kardashian Changes Pregnancy Details to Obtain Maximum Publicity
Linking her due date to Kate Middleton’s would guarantee additional publicity for Kim if the media and her fans believed that both babies were due in July.
It’s interesting to note that most media outlets and celebrity gossip sited ran with the fictitious delivery Kim began quoting, without even bothering to check the facts or do the math.
Only a few sharp media outlets (less than five) caught on to what was actually happening. Since they glossed over it or only mentioned it in passing, the bogus delivery date that Kim and the Kardashian clan kept quoting was solidly fixed in everyone’s mind.
Now that Kim Kardashian’s baby has been born, she’s trying to con everyone into believing that her baby girl was born 5 weeks ahesd of schedule early when her baby was actually born right on time.
But you have only to surf the Net to see how many media outlets were taken in by Kim Kardashian’s lies.
