Khloe Kardashian did not hire off-duty cops to trail Tristan Thompson, despite a claim circulating online. The reality star herself is slamming the false rumor. Gossip Cop can also explain how it originated.
On Wednesday, the head of Black Sports Online tweeted, â€śTristan Thompson on Being Held Hostage By Khloe Kardashian; Canâ€™t Leave The House Without Her, How He Had to Give Up All His Passcodes & How Khloe Hired Off Duty Cops Make Sure He Canâ€™t See Thotourage.â€ť The story to which the tweet links is headlined, â€śTristan Thompson Says Khloe Kardashian is Holding Him Hostage & Wonâ€™t Let Him Leave LA or Go Anywhere Without Her.â€ť The article quotes from a RadarOnline report, which doesnâ€™t feature any quotes from Thompson himself, but describes the NBA player as â€śmiserable,â€ť and alleges Kardashian â€śwonâ€™t let him leaveâ€ť Los Angeles and return to Cleveland.
The siteâ€™s writer goes on to contend, â€śKhloe has hired off-duty cops to track TTK when he does manage to go out alone,â€ť and further adds, â€śI heard a story where he wanted to go to CVS and Khloe wouldnâ€™t let him go without her, I canâ€™t imagine being under that type of pressure.â€ť The part about â€śoff-duty copsâ€ť being hired â€śto trackâ€ť Thompson links to a previous Black Sports Online story titled, â€śDetails on Khloe Kardashian Spending $1000s a Day to Hire Off Duty Cops Following Tristan Thompson Around So He Doesnâ€™t Cheat With The Thotourage.â€ť That piece also cribs from RadarOnline, which alleged Kardashian â€śhired private investigators and off-duty cops to follow the love rat NBA starâ€™s every move.â€ť
Itâ€™s readily apparent that BSO made no effort to fact-check any of these claims, and the website also offers no proof for the contention that Kardashian wouldnâ€™t even let Thompson go to CVS alone. But the allegations made their way to the new mom on Saturday, after someone shared the aforementioned tweet, and tagged Kardashian writing, â€śJus[t] put him on an ankle monitor sis @khloekardashian.â€ť Kardashian replied on Twitter, â€śIf you are corny enough to believe something like this than [sic] you must have a very miserable and boring life.â€ť
She even added, â€śThe fact that you felt the need to tweet me this already sheds light onto the kind of life you have.â€ť It also sheds light on the outlets that make-up these phony stories and spread them. When a fan subsequently told the â€śKUWTKâ€ť star, â€śThe things people make up are wild. Theyâ€™re clearly happy and moving forward, a ton of your favorite celebrities have done the same. Wish them the best and stop bringing up the past,â€ť Kardashian wrote back on Twitter, â€śThank you love. Opinions I donâ€™t mind but blatant lies I canâ€™t handle.â€ť
Furthermore, it should be noted thereâ€™s clear evidence the basketball player isnâ€™t being â€śheld hostageâ€ť nor is he forbidden from leaving L.A. Earlier this week, Us Weekly reported Thompson traveled to his hometown of Toronto for a â€śguysâ€™ night.â€ť Additionally, just a few days ago RadarOnline peddled a new, equally wrong report about Thompson â€śditchingâ€ť Kardashian in L.A. and going back to Cleveland. The online publicationâ€™s inconsistent and contradictory falsehoods show it doesnâ€™t care about truth-telling.
Conclusion: RadarOnline stories about a â€śmiserableâ€ť Thompson being unable to â€śleaveâ€ť Los Angeles and Kardashian using â€śprivate investigators and off-duty cops to followâ€ť him were picked up by Black Sports Online. The blog spread the claims despite having no evidence that theyâ€™re true, and now Kardashian herself has spoken out and confirmed theyâ€™re actually â€ślies.â€ť It was also reported days ago that, far from being a â€śhostage,â€ť Thompson traveled out of the country.
