Has Caitlyn Jenner been drunk dialing the Kardashians?! A new report suggests the former Olympian has a drinking problem that involves her famous extended family. Gossip Cop looked into the story.
"Someone needs to hide Caitlyn Jenner's phone when she drinks," begins this article in OK!, which claims she "can't resist calling the Kardashians when she's had a few too many." A so-called "source" is quoted as saying, "Cait's still upset about being frozen out of the family and it tends to bother her even more when she drinks." And with that "liquid courage," it's alleged Jenner calls former stepdaughters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, as well as ex-wife Kris Jenner.
The tabloid's untraceable tipster asserts she "just wants to make things right," but "nobody feels like having a late-night heart-to-heart" with her. In fact, the magazine claims the Kardashians "try to end the convos as quickly as possible." Contends the alleged insider, "Kris thinks it's insulting to get these booze-fueled phone calls and she's getting sick of it."
But there's a significant problem with this story. Why would Jenner need to drunk dial the Kardashians when she can just talk to them in person? As widely reported, the whole family was reunited just last week at Kylie Jenner's 21st birthday party. Curiously, that's not mentioned in this piece.
And though Jenner has been largely estranged from the Kardashians over the last year, she could just pay a visit to their homes if she wanted to patch things up. The outlet is making it seem like Jenner's only option for communication is drunken phone calls. Notably, the publication has no evidence to even back up its premise, aside from its one anonymous "source." Additionally, while she is a fan of wine, as seen on Jenner's Instagram, there is no proof she has a drinking problem.
A spokesperson for Jenner even tells Gossip Cop on the record that this narrative is "hilarious" and "untrue." It also follows a similarly bizarre and unsubstantiated story from OK! two weeks ago. In that report, the tabloid told readers Jenner is addicted to facelifts to the point where "those close to her" are "terrified" for her well-being. Yet nothing was mentioned then about Jenner regularly having a "few too many drinks," and this new tale makes no mention of her health supposedly being in jeopardy from plastic surgery. It seems the real problem is with the magazine's poor reporting.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
