Sources close to Kim Kardashian have confirmed that the star’s recent hickey is from Kanye West.

The mark was spotted by eagle-eyed photographers after the duo shared a movie date in NYC. According to reports, they enjoyed a late night showing of “The Hunger Games” before hitting a local restaurant for a bite to eat.

Apparently, Kayne had more in mind than the menu.

While some have speculated the mark was merely a flare-up of Kim’s psoriasis, TMZ reports that “sources close to Kim’s neck” have confirmed its existence as a love bite. Kim herself has yet to comment.

Kayne, on the other hand, is open and unrepentant about their relationship, releasing a new song that mentions his feelings for Kim even while she was linked with ex-boyfriend Kris Humphries: “And I admit I fell in love with Kim/Round the same time she fell in love with him.”

Even if Kim’s chronic immune disease are bothering her, it’s likely she can’t get treatment while she’s pregnant, Dr. Howard Sobel, Manhattan Dermatologist, Dermatologic Surgeon, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

“She may have been instructed to not use it regularly, or not use it at all since she was pregnant,” said Dr. Sobel says. He adds that the cortico steroid would get into the blood stream and affect the baby. Pregnant women should lower medication or if they could, avoid it.

“Most likely, her OBGYN would have her lay off the chemicals as much as possible,” he says.
