A new report alleges Kris Jenner is pushing her children to get more political on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” in an attempt to boost ratings for the show. The claim, however, is entirely inaccurate. Gossip Cop can reveal the truth.

“Keeping Up With The Politicians,” reads a headline from this week’s National Enquirer, which goes on to contend that the Kardashian matriarch is hoping to “get the ladies into politics” in an effort to stop the “sinking” show from its alleged “downward spiral.” A so-called “source” tells the outlet, “In an upcoming episode, you’ll see Kim attending Planned Parenthood with her camera crew.” “Kris is encouraging all the girls to talk about what is going on in the country and is pushing for at least one of her kids to be a Trump supporter,” further purports the magazine’s dubious insider, adding, “Kris wants controversy.”

And while it’s true that Kim and her sisters Kourtney and Khloe recently filmed at the Planned Parenthood headquarters in Los Angeles, multiple sources tell Gossip Cop the focus on the show is not becoming political in an effort to boost ratings. “There are issues, political and non-political, that interest them, and it has nothing to do with the show,” one insiders assures us. Additionally, a rep for Jenner exclusively confirms to Gossip Cop the entire report is “false.”

Of course, we know exactly how the Enquirer came to fabricate this bogus tale. Two weeks ago, Kim recently shared a photo on Instagram from her trip to Planned Parenthood, posing with her sisters and a number of staff members. She later wrote, “My sisters and I visited Planned Parenthood recently and learned that the House of Representatives forced through a bill that strips health care coverage from millions of people and raises health care costs, including Planned Parenthood patients. They are such an amazing place that provides so much to so many! #istandwithpp.” Seemingly, the often disproven supermarket tabloid saw an opportunity to twist the truth, but failed.

This isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted the publication for its made-up stories about the reality show. In March, we corrected the outlet for wrongly claiming Jenner was getting O.J. Simpson to join “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Much like that unfounded article, this latest one is also not based in reality.
