Kim Kardashian Gave Friends A Fake Baby Pic To See Who Would Sell It To The Tabloids
Every day, Kim Kardashian has to live with the knowledge that anyone in her inner circle, at any time, might sell her out without so much as the bat of an eyelash. The 32-year-old reality star is so acutely aware of this fact that in order to prevent such a person from selling a photo of her baby, she hatched a plan to catch the would-be perp before they had the chance to do her dirty.
According to TMZ, Kim sent a photo of a decoy baby to about six of her closest friends in order to see who would sell it to the tabloids. The gossip site reports:
Sure enough ... someone came along and tried selling us this pic
As if that wasn't bad enough, another friend tried to sell another fake baby picture that she sent around to a different group of people. So basically, Kim can't trust anyone. Which is sad, and not funny.
Kim and Kanye brought their baby girl, North West, home from the hospital last week and are reportedly staying with Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, as they wait for their palatial new home in Bel Air to be finished.
