CLAIM: Khloe Kardashian X Factor Hosting Job Triggers Family “Uproar”

Truth rating: 0

According to the National Enquirer, “The Kardashian clan is in an uproar — over Khloe’s chance to host ‘The X Factor.'”

“The show’s creator, Simon Cowell, has tabbed the leggy brunette as a possible co-host, and sources say that’s got her sisters Kourtney and Kim hair-pulling mad!” shrieks the tabloid. A so-called “insider” explains, “They know that if Khloe gets the ‘X Factor’ gig, it will occupy so much time that she won’t be available for their TV show anymore. They’re worried that this will be the beginning of the end of the Kardashians.”

The Enquirer claims Khloe was “unhappy” in the past when Kim branched off to do her own ventures. “But now Khloe is doing exactly the same thing, prompting Kim and Kourtney to call her a hypocrite!” declares the magazine’s “insider.” The tab source adds, “Hosting ‘The X Factor’ is a HUGE opportunity for Khloe, and she bluntly says her sisters can take it or leave it.”

Kris Jenner, meanwhile, is “the only one who isn’t too upset since she’s Khloe’s manager and stands to get her cut anyway,” explains the Enquirer source. “Still, she doesn’t like to see her children fighting like this.” Uh-huh.

We’re not sure why outlets decided to gang up on Khloe Kardashian this week, but they’re doing a pretty lousy job of it. There was the bogus webloid story about Lamar Odom moving out on her, and then a weird, speculative report that she feared her family was “abandoning” her. Now the Enquirer is saying the opposite — that her sisters fear she’s ditching them, which itself is just a lame rehash of rumors about sibling “rivalry” over the ‘X Factor’ — reports Gossip Cop already debunked. And all of this is regarding a potential job Kardashian doesn’t even officially have. As a source close to the family tells Gossip Cop, the idea that the sisters are fighting over Khloe and “X Factor’ is “totally ridiculous.”

“They’d be very happy for her,” adds our source.
