Khloe Kardashian has responded to rumours which insinuate that her new boyfriend is singer Trey Songz, after she was spotted flirting with him while leaving her 32nd birthday party this week. The reality star took to her IG to call out tabloids for their sensationalized and sexist headlines. She wrote,
“The most annoying thing about tabloid rumors is the double standard. If I’m ‘spotted’ hanging with a guy at a party—even if I’m just saying hi for a quick second – it immediately becomes a negative headline about how many guys I’m dating or how I’m getting into a new relationship. Men don’t get that reputation! People have taken pictures of me and say they’re proof of something concrete. Pictures are just moments in time. They never show the whole truth. In Hollywood, you could go out on a first date and it could spiral into this huge thing. The headline the next day is ‘Khloé’s Getting Married!’ LOL. It’s so weird. That stuff definitely makes it difficult to take it slow and see how things go. I normally don’t comment on those stories, but if it gets out of control, I’ll speak up—especially because that kind of gossip affects how people see me. A guy could assume I’m dating someone and not approach me, when I’m actually single. Sometimes I completely avoid going out in public with a new guy because I don’t want to deal with the sexist headlines.
