Last week, Star magazine posted a deplorable cover story in which they claimed that Kris Jenner had gained 70 pounds in recent weeks.
The tabloid offered (probably fabricated) details about Kris' habit of consuming four bottles of wine a day and "eating her feelings."
"Whenever Kris is stressed or depressed, she turns to food and alcohol," a source close to the situation tells Radar Online.
The situation is almost certainly not as dire as the tabloids have made it seem, but Kris didn't build an empire by lying back and allowing the media to bully her.
Interestingly, she's not suing this time (at least not yet), but instead, the 60-year-old momager has been rocking bulky winter gear (like the fur seen above), and is planning to re-emerge in the summer months looking more slender than ever.
"She has already been given a nutrition and diet plan," the insider says. "But she has not actually started at her workouts yet."
As for reports that Corey Gamble dumped Kris due to her weight gain, the source says that's bogus.
Apparently, Kris is on a mission to lose weight, but she's doing for herself...and to show up some snarky tabloid editors, of course.
