Leyla, 24, told Star magazine that their first hook-up started in July 2012 and continued even after Kim had announced her pregnancy.
Leyla Ghobadi said of her decision to come forward, “This is going to destroy the Kardashian family. It’s bad. It’s really bad. It’s just embarrassing. But if I were Kim and about to have a baby, I would want to know.”
Kanye reportedly saw Leyla dancing in the crowd at his show in Atlantic City in July last year. West had a member of his entourage find her and invite her backstage.
The rapper later invited Leyla for drinks at AC’s HQ Nightclub, before asking her to come back to his hotel room.
Leyla declined at that point because it seemed too rushed.
Kanye asked Leyla and her friends, who had driven down from Montreal to watch his show, if they wanted to attend his show the next evening, giving them backstage passes.
Ghobadi admits she knew Kanye was dating Kim at the time, but the 36-year-old rapper insisted the relationship was “for publicity and nothing serious”.
A pal who was with Ghobadi backstage told Star he saw West make his move.
“He kept touching her hair and they were laughing,” Chris Karls said. “Kanye was just really aggressive in his approach to her.”
Leyla agreed to go to his hotel, revealing, “We began to make out for a while – and next thing I knew, we were both naked and having sex.”
Their next fling came in October in New York, when Kim was in Miami.
Leyla claims Kanye contacted her just last weekend to see if she wanted to meet up, but said she knew Kim was pregnant.
Kanye West recently spoke of his reasons for not appearing on the reality show “Keeping In The Kardashians”.
He explained, “I’m the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know? I’m the type of soul that likes to be in love and likes to be able to focus. And that inspires me. You know, the amount of backlash I got from it is when I decided to not be on the show anymore. And it’s not that I have an issue with the show; I just have an issue with the amount of backlash that I get. Because I just see like, an amazing person that I’m in love with that I want to help.'”
Kanye West said he wants to keep his baby out of the limelight, adding, “I would do anything to protect my child or my child’s mother. As simple as that…I just don’t want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby.’
Kim Kardashian was unhappy that Kanye enjoyed his birthday party in New York without her, even though he knew she would not be able to attend.
An insider said, “Kim is so close to giving birth and she’s big and uncomfortable and knowing Kanye partied with all of their friends really made her mad.”
