Kim Kardashian has to be the most SCANDALOUS chick in the entire universe,” begins another story by MediaTakeOut that wasn’t fact-checked.

The webloid says, “Kim was SCHEMING to cheat on Kanye West… with the number 2 draft pick Robert Griffin III… just a few weeks ago.”

MTO reports that “30 Rock” executive producer Jack Burditt said in a recent interview on “The Rich Eisen Podcast” that both Kardashian and the incoming NFL rookie were at the April filming of the show’s season finale, and while there, “Going down a road we’ve traveled before, Kim took one look at the pro athlete and was intrigued.”

Burditt is quoted as saying, “During the commercial break, [Kardashian] starts asking me questions about him. Like, ‘Now, he’s a football player, right?’ I’m like, yeah, yeah. (Kim says,) ‘And he just … something big happened, right?’ I’m like, well, yeah, he just was the No. 2 overall pick tonight. (She asks) ‘And what team?’ … Washington. (She asks) ‘What’s Washington?’ … Redskins.”

The “30 Rock” producer then claims Kardashian said, “‘I don’t know much about football, but, so what’s his deal?’ And I’m thinking, ‘You stay away from him. This is a nice young man.’”

“Her inner alarm was going off,” added Burditt in the radio talk with Eisen.

Noting that Kardashian had already begun dating West at the time, MediaFakeOut ends its piece by declaring, “Kim is SCAAAAAAANDALOUS!!!”

One problem.

We’re not sure if Burditt was kidding or whether his recollection fails him, but a Kardashian pal who was on the scene tells Gossip Cop it is “100 percent bulls**t” that the reality star expressed interest in Griffin, and that the “30 Rock” producer “totally made this up!”
