“Kardashian Scientology Nightmare,” blares a headline from the National Enquirer, which has probably been dying for an excuse to string those words together for years.

According to the supermarket tabloid, “Kris Jenner is terrified that her youngest daughter, Kylie, is going to get sucked into the controversial Church of Scientology if she continues to date Karate Kid star Jaden Smith — the son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.” The mag claims the teenagers’ “budding romance” initially “earned momager Kris’ stamp of approval,” quoting a supposed “insider” as saying, “They were going to be the new Kardashian ‘celebrity couple.'”

“Kris’ mind was going a mile a minute thinking about all of the business deals she could make in the teen market,” notes the tab’s so-called “source,” adding, “But after pals alerted her to the Smith family’s attachment to Scientology, she started having second thoughts about the relationship.” Now, the Kardashian matriarch is allegedly “concerned that Jaden will pique Kylie’s interest in the church,” which the “insider” warns could “go after her money and try to control her career.”

Wow. As in, wow is this story is dumb. For starters, although Will Smith has been vocal about his acceptance of Scientology, he and his family do NOT actively practice the religion. Also, Jaden and Kylie are 14 and 15-years-old, respectively, and they’ve been spotted on all of two dates, during which their conversation likely consisted of teenage topics such as school and friends — not converting religions. In any case, Gossip Cop checked in with a Kardashian family insider, who tells us the tab’s tale is totally “ridiculous.”
