Kanye West, due to become a first time parent with pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian in a matter of weeks, is defending himself against rumors that he cheated on her with a Canadian model.

“This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit,” his rep told People.com in a statement on Wednesday. “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. This is a sad attempt to hurt two people trying to live their lives.”

The model, 24-year-old Leyla Ghobadi, told Star magazine that West hooked up with the her twice and told her his relationship with Kim was all for publicity.
