There’s been a crack in the case of the supposed Kim Kardashian booty shot. TMZ got to the bottom of things and revealed it as a cheeky prank.
The Twittersphere has been lit up for hours over this photo, supposedly of Kardashian, supposedly posted by her current boo Kanye West.
Except it’s not her, and he didn’t tweet it.
TMZ, working its impressive source list, reports that the woman in the photo is a porn star who tweeted the photo of herself last year. Someone nabbed it and with the pile of dry kindling that is Twitter, set the rumor mill ablaze.
Here’s a cropped version of the image at the right, by the way. Want to see the original? Just fire up Twitter. It’s everywhere.
Mention of the boudoir photo is absent from West’s Twitter feed at the moment. He has more than 7 million followers but is following just one account. Guess who? Kim Kardashian.
The reality show personality does not address the matter on her busy Twitter feed, either, but does give her faithful fans something to look forward to. A recent message says, “Ummmm no big deal Oprah just left my mom’s house!” Great news: The family will be featured on Oprah Winfrey’s show “Next Chapter” at 8 p.m. this Sunday.
