Khloe Kardashian was not the “only” Kardashian sister to “snub” Caitlyn Jenner on Father’s Day, contrary to a provably false claim. Gossip Cop can debunk this story. Kim Kardashian didn’t acknowledge her former stepfather on the holiday, either.

But In Touch is wrongly announcing in a headline, “Khloe Kardashian Is Noticeably the Only Sister to Snub Caitlyn Jenner on Father’s Day.” Khloe and Jenner have been estranged for the last several years, and now according to the tabloid, their “feud became even more apparent on Father’s Day 2018.” How so? The magazine contends that “all of KoKo’s sisters included Cait in their messages, even Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, but not Khloe.”

What did Kim and Kourtney say about Jenner in their Father’s Day messages? Where can fans read them? Tellingly, the alleged messages aren’t included in the article. Instead, readers are instructed to watch a YouTube video created by the outlet, which purports to show how Kardashian was the “only sister” to snub Jenner on the dad-focused holiday. “Even Kim and Kourt shared this throwback pic, despite having a strained relationship with Cait,” the publication captions a photo of the sisters posing as teenagers with Jenner and their late father, Robert Kardashian.

But this description isn’t accurate. As preserved on Instagram by a fan account, it was Kourtney who uploaded that old snapshot to social media, and she did so without any message. Kim didn’t share the photo at all, or do any message for Jenner whatsoever. Jenner was not mentioned in Kim’s Father’s Day post on her official website, nor in a Twitter tribute to her late dad. Significantly, People even did a story on Kendall and Kylie honoring Jenner on Father’s Day, but made no mention of Kim doing so as well.

Had she actually done so, the reputable magazine and other credible outlets would’ve covered it. The gesture would’ve been noteworthy since Kim and Jenner have been at odds for a while, much like the transgender star and Khloe. In fact, when Kim shared a throwback photo of Jenner and her mom Kris on her Instagram Story in March, it made international headlines. Yet now In Touch is the only publication claiming Kim sent her estranged stepfather a Father’s Day message. She didn’t, just as Khloe didn’t.

It’s striking that the tabloid is insisting that Khloe was “noticeably the only sister” to “snub” Jenner on the holiday when that’s noticeably untrue. And had the magazine simply done a straight-forward story that reported Khloe didn’t acknowledge Jenner on Father’s Day, it would’ve been accurate. Instead, it tried to be sensational with a clearly unsubstantiated and false angle.
