Khloe Kardashian is not considering adopting Rob Kardashian‘s daughter Dream, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can bust this fake news.

The allegation comes from RadarOnline, which exclaims in a headline on Wednesday, “Dream Scenario? Khloe Wants To Adopt Rob’s Daughter!” The accompanying article asserts Khloe has “formed such an intense bond with her niece Dream, she has told her brother Rob she wants to adopt her.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as telling the site that Khloe “can’t get enough” of the 6-month-old infant, and is “so protective of her because of all the dramas surrounding her folks.”

And given Rob’s up-and-down relationship with Dream’s mother, Blac Chyna, the webloid contends “Khloe has decided to step in, especially if there is a nasty custody battle brewing.” The outlet’s supposed source alleges, “She knows Rob getting full custody is unlikely. But regardless of what’s going on between Rob and Blac Chyna, she wants to help him co-parent his daughter, and get formal paperwork drawn up to make it real.”

“At 32, her biological clock is ticking away, making taking care of Dream her backup plan,” maintains the online publication, which notes, “No word on what Dream’s mom, Blac Chyna, thinks of the whole thing.” Gossip Cop wouldn’t be surprised to see Chyna’s reaction made up for a follow-up story now that RadarOnline has planted the seed.

But there’s a few obvious flaws with this tale. First off, no one has accused Rob and Chyna of being unfit parents. Whether they remain a couple or not has little bearing on their ability to raise Dream, so there’d be no reason to award Khloe custody of the tot. And if it’s just a matter of “help[ing] him co-parent,” no “formal paperwork” is needed. It’s just fulfilling the role of dedicated aunt, which the reality star does with all her nieces and nephews. And an adoption is not necessary for Khloe to be a “significant part of Dream’s life.”

Lastly, the notion that adopting the little girl is a “backup plan” for having biological children of her own is wrong on multiple levels. That’s not a reason to adopt your niece, and certainly not a rational idea. Gossip Cop has confirmed that Khloe would, of course, want to take care of any of her nieces and nephews should their parents, heaven forbid, become incapacitated. But this story claiming she wants to adopt Dream when Rob and Chyna are perfectly capable of raising her is “ridiculous” fake news.
