Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby North West has been protected in a bubble of privacy since her birth. Six hospital workers have been fired over a patient data breach at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles facility said in a statement, and many believe Kim Kardashian was one of the victims.

According to TMZ, the snooping hospital workers were targeting Kim, who gave birth to North on June 15 at the medical center. Five staff members and one student research assistant were fired.

The Cedars-Sinai statement said the center has a "high standard for security" and "in this case that standard was violated," Reuters reports.

TMZ said Kardashian checked out of the hospital about a week after she gave birth, but that the hospital contacted her to tell her she was one of the 14 patients whose records were accessed between June 18 and June 24.

Cedars-Sinai officials said it "informed the affected patients" and apologized to them.

TMZ also reported that Kardashian's family suspected a leak of information at Cedars-Sinai when the media released information that the Kardashians had not shared with anyone.

The International Business Times reports that Kim K allegedly tested the trustworthiness of her own group of friends after her baby's birth by sending out fake photographs of North West to see whether anyone would try to sell the pictures to the media. TMZ received two of the false photos of North.
