A story claiming Kim Kardashian âpromisedâ Khloe Kardashian that sheâll âbe nicerâ when talking about Tristan Thompson was made-up. Gossip Cop can bust the seemingly fabricated report. A close look at the claims, the timing of this narrative and reporting from actually reliable outlets expose this purported âexclusiveâ as a sham.
The article in question comes from HollywoodLife, which on Monday night claimed to have âexclusive detailsâ on why Kim is âvowing to be careful when speaking about [Thompson] going forward.â The site brings up her interview on âThe Ellen DeGeneres Show,â in which she called the NBA playerâs infidelity âjust so [expletive] up.â A so-called âsourceâ is quoted as saying, âKhloe was furious with Kim after she slammed Tristan on her last appearance on âEllen.’â
Itâs specifically alleged the famous siblings âhad a huge fight that ended with Khloe fighting back tears as she yelled at her older sister to be more supportive.â The blogâs alleged tipster contends Khloe âbegged Kim to be more careful and sensitive with her words in future appearances,â prompting Kim to not only apologize, but to also promise to be ânicer and more carefulâ in upcoming interviews. There are a few signs within these allegations that siteâs supposed insight is made-up.
First, consider the timeline: Kimâs comments on âEllenâ were released in preview form on April 27, before the interview was broadcast on April 30. Now on May 14, after two weeks have gone by, HollywoodLies, as the outlet is nicknamed, wants readers to believe it just discovered that the appearance prompted a secret âfightâ between Kim and Khloe. And as part of the purported argument, itâs asserted Kim vowed to be ânicerâŠ ahead of her next round of interviews.â At this point, that ânext roundâ has already taken place. Kim spoke about Khloe and Thompson on the May 11 episode of âLive with Kelly and Ryan.â The online publication is pretending to have inside knowledge, but is suspiciously doing so after the fact.
Next, consider what exactly is being alleged. The story claims Kim was chastised for not being âsupportiveâ and was urged to be ânicerâ when it comes to Thompson. But look at what she actually said on the âEllenâ show: âThe family gets so emotionally invested with whoever each other is with. We treat them like familyâŠ We really were rooting for Khloe, and we still are.â Kim then shared a âruleâ that she has, where âif thereâs a baby involvedâŠ Iâm gonna keep it cute, keep is classy and not talk too bad.â She went on, âIâm gonna try not to say anything so negative, because one day True is going to see this.â
In other words, Kim explicitly expressed her support for Khloe, and refused to specifically talk badly about Thompson. The HollywoodLies version of events wrongly makes it seem like she did the opposite. It is illogical to allege Khloe is demanding her sister be âmore careful and sensitiveâ when thatâs exactly what she already was. Lastly, consider that not one credible media outlet reported anything about Kimâs âEllenâ appearance sparking a dispute about Thompson.
In contrast, on Monday E! Online actually ran a story about Khloeâs first Motherâs Day, in which it was specifically noted, âKhloe has been talking to [Kim] the most.â The outlet, which is essentially a mouthpiece for its âKeeping Up With The Kardashianâ stars, added, âThey arenât talking about [Thompson] at all. Khloe isnât bringing it up and they just talk about True and motherhood.â
That goes directly against the HollywoodLies narrative about Thompson-fueled clash. So, the website is offering up claims that donât make sense in terms of timing or context, and that are contradicted by a far more credible resource. Itâs clear its âexclusiveâ was made-up, and poorly so.
