Kim Kardashian’s relationship with Reggie Bush has been at the center of tabloid rumors for months. After Reggie won his Super Bowl ring earlier this year, rumors of an engagement surrounded the couple. It seemed that everyone was cheering for Kim and Reggie to move forward in their relationship. Now that the excitement of the championship has subsided, the tide has turned for the power couple.
Recent tabloid reports have hinted that Kim’s relationship with Reggie is doomed. Both In Touch Weekly and Star magazine attacked Kim’s relationship with her boyfriend of two years. Kim defended the accusations on her website. “Reggie and I have never been happier. I am in no rush to get married nor do I need to get married to be happy in my relationship. Reggie and I are perfectly fine!”
Just as Kim stepped up to defend her relationship with Reggie, more tabloids were stirring up trouble for the happy couple.
After Reggie was spotted out with another woman on Wednesday night, the gossip sites immediately speculated about a break-up.
MediaTakeOut.com started one particularly nasty rumor. The tabloid reported that “Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush are SPLIT UP. Word on the street is that Reggie wasn’t comfortable having his relationship play out publicly, in front of the cameras. And word on the street is that he decided to LET KIM DOWN easy.”
Star magazine has also reported that Reggie has ended his relationship with the reality star. The March 29 issue reports that Kim recently discovered that Reggie has been unfaithful.
A source told the magazine that Kim tried to ignore the rumors but has finally had enough. “She doesn’t want to be alone and she’s crazy about him, so she puts up with it. Kim really wants to believe Reggie will eventually realize he can’t live without her, and they’ll be the perfect couple.”
Only time will tell if Kim and Reggie’s relationship can survive the media’s constant attention. They are doing their best to ignore the rumors and to focus on one another. After returning from a romantic vacation to Costa Rica earlier this month, Kim has been in Miami working on a number of projects.
The media can’t seem to leave the happy couple alone. Neither Kim nor Reggie have even acknowledged the accusations made by these tabloid reports. It can only be assumed that the gossip is based entirely on speculation.
