Oops! Kylie Jenner Jokes About Khloe Kardashian’s Real “Dad,” Sites Fall For It

Truth rating: 0

Kylie Jenner duped media outlets into believing her big sister Khloe Kardashian had just met with “her dad” Alex Roldan on Wednesday.

The teenage Jenner was joking when she tweeted a photograph of the duo, along with the message, “First official photo of my sister and her dad! Like father like daughter!”

Roldan is a hairdresser who has worked with Kris Jenner.

In recent weeks, there has been ridiculous speculation about Khloe’s supposed “real father,” based on tabloid stories, and Roldan’s name surfaced.

On Wednesday, Kylie Jenner was having some fun with those paternity rumors – hence the tongue-in-cheek tweet.

But a number of sites published it as though it were actual breaking news.

“It’s Official! Khloe Kardashian Finally Meets Her Real Father!” reads the headline on Global Grind, which reports that “after months of speculation,” the “amazing news” had finally been confirmed.

Zap2It and HollywoodLife also took the bait.

But again: This is not an actual bombshell about Khloe Kardashian’s paternity.

“It was a joke everyone! Lol!” tweeted Jenner.

Kris wrote, “OMG can’t anyone take a JOKE??!!!!!”

Apparently not.
