However, her claims were labelled as "malicious" and a "sad attempt" to hurt the couple, who are currently expecting their first child together.

Kanye's spokesperson told Us Weekly: "This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally 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 rep added: "This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives."
