Leyla Ghobadi, the Canadian model who claimed last week that Kanye West had a fling with her after he began a relationship with Kim Kardashian, has retracted her statement saying they got together much before he started dating Kardashian.
The 24-year-old told The Sun that she met West during one of his concerts in Montreal in 2011, before the rapper got involved with the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star.
“I was introduced to him at the Montreal concert. We met backstage as I knew members of his band. We ended up having sex at the Thompson Hotel,” the model told The Sun.
“He then flew some friends and I out to Toronto for his two concerts in the next two days. We had sex again there. This was all before Kim Kardashian and he never spoke about her.”
Ghobadi added she is sure West cannot be faithful to just one woman, and called him a Romeo who can never be trusted.
Ghobadi made headlines last week when she told Star magazine that West had been having an affair with her behind Kardashian’s back. At the time, she said that West had assured her that his relationship with Kardashian was “just for publicity” and to “increase his fan base.”
West has denied these allegations and his representative told TMZ that these stories are without merit.
“It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources,” the representative said. "This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives."
