The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star addressed the claims after BuzzFeed did an in-depth timeline comparing her private island trip to when she admitted to contracting the virus.

Interestingly enough, Kim only revealed the diagnosis during Thursday night's episode and she's usually an open book with fans.

In the latest KUWTK episode, the 40-year-old showed how difficult it was to study for the baby bar exam while taking care of her four children and being sick with COVID.

After scouring through her birthday photos and comparing them to when she revealed she felt sick on the show to when she felt good enough to study for the exam then healthy enough to take it, BuzzFeed alleged Kim could have contracted COVID during her party.

The KKW Beauty founder caused an uproar in October when she posted several photos and revealed she flew dozens of her closest friends and family to a remote island to celebrate.

According to BuzzFeed, Kim most likely returned from her birthday trip at the end of October and was with Caitlyn Jenner on October 27 for her ex-stepdad's birthday.

Kim began to feel sick in the week before her exam -- which took place on November 17.

After an in-depth look into Kim's life during those several weeks, BuzzFeed concluded the evidence "suggests she tested positive on or around Saturday, Nov. 7 — roughly 10 days after returning home from her private island birthday party."

But the KUWTK star shot down that report just hours after it surfaced.

Taking to her Twitter, Kim fired back, "False. Nobody caught Covid from the trip." She then went on to explain how she allegedly contracted COVID.

"Saint was the first to have it in our family and he caught it from school from another student who tested positive first. I then developed symptoms and got it a few days after he coughed on me while caring for him," she wrote.

Naturally, followers responded by questioning whether Kim was telling the truth.

"The only problem I have with this, is thinking there were no schools open during this time in California," one person responded. "The one time I cared for him he coughed on me," laughed another.
