Viral conspiracy theory forces Kim Kardashian to address rumors of Drake affair
She says she’s not Kiki.
The conspiracy theory, which appears to have been first posted by Twitter user @mdaixo__ (with a very similar thread from Tyler Morrison getting even more traction), breaks down what may have been going on between Kardashian and Drake while looping in recent feuds with Kanye West and Pusha T. It also argued that Kardashian was “Kiki” in Drake’s song “In My Feelings” and pointed to the fact that Kardashian called herself Kiki as far back as 2010. (She also has a lipstick color named Kiki.)

@mdaixo__ offered the possibility that Drake alluded to Kardashian as a response to his feud with West and highlighted several examples of Drake referencing or naming the partners or exes of other rappers with whom he’s feuding in songs. Morrison even brought in the close proximity of Kardashian and Drake’s homes as potential evidence and that their relationship might’ve been why Drake and West were fighting in the first place.
The conspiracy theory was given even more leverage by Nick Cannon, who told Complex on its show Everyday Struggle that the rumor of Drake and Kardashian sleeping together “ain’t that far off of a concept.”
“Never happened,” she wrote. “End of story.”
And now Kardashian’s had her say—sans diss track.
