Kourtney Kardashian doesn’t have time for rumors regarding her personal life, especially ridiculous pregnancy rumors. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star called out a fan who made assumptions based on her most recent Instagram post.
On Wednesday, Kourtney posted a slideshow of photos of herself to Instagram. In the two images, she is wearing an unbuttoned, cow-print top over a bikini while lounging around outside. She looks incredible, but apparently her figure prompted some followers to assume the mom-of-three was pregnant.
“SHE’S PREGENANT (sp),” one fan commented. Kourtney was quick to shut down any speculation while also pointing out the subtle body shaming of such accusations.
“This is me when I have a few extra pounds on, and I actually love it,” she responded. “I have given birth three amazing times and this is the shape of my body.”
Kourtney has three kids with her ex, Scott Disick: sons Mason, 10, and Reign, 5, and daughter Penelope, 7.
File this under things you never say to a woman. Not only is it none of your business, but it can also be hurtful to women experiencing body image issues, infertility or recent loss.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time Kourtney has dealt with speculation regarding her ovaries. After posting photos from a Poosh photo shoot in April, one follower wrote, rather bluntly: “You are pregnant.”
“I could’ve taken that offensively … but I know that I didn’t look pregnant,” Kourtney said of the comment during an Instagram Live. “I know what my body looks like when I’m pregnant. I’ve been pregnant three times. It’s very feminine to have curves and I embrace my body, so I didn’t take it offensively.”
And back in January, a follower asked if she was pregnant under a photo of the reality star sporting a bodysuit. You see the trend.
Kourtney isn’t the only Kardashian currently dealing with this nonsense, either. In a series of Tweets this week, Khloé Kardashian denied rumors she’s expecting another child with her ex and the father of her child, Tristan Thompson, calling people’s words “sick and hurtful.”
“I am disgusted by so many things I am seeing. SMH people swear they know everything about me. Including my uterus. Sick,” Khloé wrote.
“The nasty things you’re saying about me over A RUMOR! I have seen so many hurtful/despicable stories and tweets about me over a false story. And if it were true…. it’s MY LIFE, NOT YOURS.”
I don’t go on social platforms much these days AND this is one of the main reasons as to why I stay away. The sick and hurtful things people say. I am disgusted by so many things I am seeing. SMH people swear they know everything about me. Including my uterus. Sick.
