Rumors that Kanye West cheated on Kim Kardashian practically exploded the internet recently, after Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi made the brave move of telling Star magazine that she’d slept with the rapper on multiple occasions.

Soon after, Kanye hopped a plane to Switzerland!

The timing may seem odd, but Kanye wasn’t making a dash for neutral territory, he was off to a surprise show at a Design Miami event during Art Basel in Switzerland. Whew!

According to the paper, West headed to Basel to hold a secret listening party for his new album “Yeezus.”  And he did just that, in front of 200 socialites, fashionistas and art world luminaries.

Kim, of course, is eight months pregnant and can’t fly, so she was stuck in L.A. and couldn’t join him. But before he left, Kanye broke his tight-lipped mold and had a rep issue a formal statement refuting Leyla’s claims:

"This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit," the statement read. "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.”

Boom. [Drops mic]
