The rumor mill was buzzing Wednesday after Life & Style claimed “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant with Justin Bieber’s baby. The two briefly dated in December, despite a 14-year age difference. At the time, Bieber’s ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez was supposedly taken aback by the relationship, and now the pregnancy rumors have left the “Hands to Myself” singer infuriated.

Gomez, 23, isn’t sure if the cover story is a hoax, according to an insider. “She doesn’t think it’s real, but also doesn’t want to think about it or talk about it,” the insider told Hollywood Life Wednesday. “She has heard about it and thinks that it is stupid.”

The biggest problem Gomez has with Kardashian possibly being pregnant with her ex’s baby is being asked about it in future interviews. “She is just mad that if she does an interview in the near future she will have to dodge the question,” a source said. “She doesn’t want to be put in that predicament. She hates having to deal with the eventual Justin related questions that she always gets, she wants to be asked and known for more than just him.”

The cover of Life & Style says Kardashian, 36, is “Pregnant by Bieber!” It claims, “Justin can’t wait to be a dad.” However, Gossip Cop, a website that debunks celebrity hearsay, claims the rumor is “all lies.” The site said: “We’re exclusively told the star is absolutely NOT pregnant with Bieber’s baby. A source close to Bieber also tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the allegation is ‘B.S.’ ”

Life & Style frequently claims members of the Kardashian-Jenner family are pregnant. In the past they wrote Khloé Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were expecting, though there wasn’t any proof they conceived.
