A certain webloid is claiming to know Khloe Kardashian “cried tears of joy” over her pregnancy. While it’s certainly a plausible reaction, Gossip Cop is told that no one close to the mom-to-be is sharing such details with this sketchy site. And yes, we’re talking about HollywoodLife, and we’re talking about what appears to be yet another made-up story.
It’s been less than two days since Kardashian’s pregnancy was revealed, and already HollywoodLies has concocted five related “exclusives.” One such story is headlined, “Khloe Kardashian ‘Cried Tears Of Joy’ After Finding Out She Was Pregnant With Tristan’s Baby.” In the piece, the outlet purports to have “EXCLUSIVE details on how she wept with joy upon finding out the news.”
A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Khloe is absolutely thrilled. She’s been waiting for this moment for so so long and it’s finally happening. When she found out she was pregnant she broke down and cried tears of joy. It still feels surreal because she’s thought about it for so long. She loves Tristan with all her heart and is so incredibly excited to go on this journey together.”
None of those “EXCLUSIVE details,” however, are all that revealing. Even the most casual fan knows Kardashian has “been waiting for this moment for so so long and it’s finally happening.” It’s also easy to guess that the reality star is “thrilled” and “excited.” And, duh, of course “she loves Tristan.” What HollywoodLies has actually cobbled together is not an exclusive scoop, but no-brainer assumptions. That’s often what the blog does when it wants to appear in-the-know on a hot topic.
But there’s actually proof the online publication doesn’t have real insight at all. For starters, if HollywoodLies actually had inside access, it wouldn’t have falsely reported Kardashian was pregnant more than a year ago. If the site really had an “insider,” it wouldn’t have wrongly speculated Kardashian and Thompson split back in May. And if the webloid truly had inside knowledge, it wouldn’t have asked yesterday, “Did Khloe Kardashian Confirm Her Pregnancy With Snapchat Pic In June?” Kardashian didn’t know she was pregnant at the time she captioned that photo “dad + mom,” so she wasn’t confirming anything.
One would think, though, that if HollywoodLies could really score “exclusives” on Kardashian, the webloid wouldn’t have made all those fumbles. The bottom line is this: The star may have indeed cried upon finding out she was pregnant, but no one close to her is telling that to this outlet, Gossip Cop is assured.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
