Koko has spoken! Khloé Kardashian has kept a low profle since it was revealed that she is pregnant with her first child. But she has re-emerged to shut down one rumor — that she lied about her ongoing fertility issues.
On an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that aired earlier this year, the 33-year-old visited an OB/GYN after a conversation with her sisters about fertility and surrogacy. During her doctor’s visit, she was told that she had “fewer follicles” than the doctor expected to see in someone her age and she was taken aback by the news that she may have issues. The confession that she “fake tried” to get pregnant with her ex-husband Lamar Odom came as a surprise to many — considering their struggle with fertility was well-documented on the show.
“I was married, but I knew the circumstances weren’t the healthiest,” she told the doc on KUWTK. “So I just kept pretending I was doing it.”
But following her confession — and reports that she conceived with her baby daddy Tristan Thompson naturally — fans have slammed Koko for lying about her struggle. But now she’s changing her story — insisting that she didn’t lie, she simply omitted the truth! When a fan called her out saying it was “unfair” to those who were actually struggling, the mama-to-be fired back, “I never lied to anybody on the show. I did try and I did go through fertility treatments. Those were documented. But once we went through the fertility treatments we realized that the problem did not lie within me. The only thing I ever withheld was who had an issue, fertility-wise. Finally a light went off in my head — let me remind you — it takes two conceive.”
Lamar — who has two kids with his ex Liza Morales (the two had another child who died of SIDS as a baby) — has yet to address Koko’s pregnancy, as well as claims that he was the one with the fertility issues. However, when Khloé confessed that she “fake tried” to have his baby, he admitted that he was hurt but he understood where she was coming from.
“That hurt a little bit, you know what I’m saying,” he said on The Wendy Williams Show. “I probably wasn’t [in the right space to be a father again], so honestly, she was probably right in saying that. She could have told me, but she was probably right.”
