A story alleging Khloe Kardashian "fears" a "tell-all book" from Lamar Odom is fake news. Gossip Cop can explain what's really going on and why it's being greatly exaggerated.
As Gossip Cop reported, Odom recently revealed he's writing an autobiography. He's said he intends to include "everything about his life." That is likely to include information about Kardashian, given that they were married. In Touch, however, quickly turned this upcoming book into a cover story about a "Kardashian tell-all." It is not a "tell-all" about the Kardashian family. It is the story of his own life.
But now HollywoodLife is also sensationalizing the situation, and seemingly pretending to have a Kardashian source. "Khloe Kardashian Fears Lamar Odom Tell-All Book Could 'Divulge Major Family Secrets,'" blares the headline. In the accompanying story, the site alleges the tome is "concerning to the reality star and her entire family because the power to reveal jaw-dropping secrets lies in his hands."
"They're all very concerned about this tell-all book and have reached out to ask him to be respectful," a so-called "source" is quoted as saying. This supposed snitch goes on to assert, "Lamar has spoken recklessly about her family in the past. Khloe fears what major secrets he could reveal." The outlet, however, fails to mention that the times Odom spoke "recklessly" were when he was using drugs.
Now the former NBA star is sober, and in recent interviews with Us Weekly and on "The Wendy Williams Show" and "The Doctors," he's been quite respectable, repeatedly noting he wants the best for his former wife. The "secrets" he's revealed to date have been about himself, not Kardashian's family. There is likely to be new information in the book, and his publisher will not doubt urge him to include juicy details. At the same time, however, both will be aware that he can't publish something so wild or inflammatory that it would spark a libel and defamation lawsuit.
Yes, Kardashian knows "the power lies in his hands," given that he's the one writing the book, but she's yet to take issue with any of the things he's revealed so far about their marriage. And let's not forget the reality star herself divulges quite a bit, too, even admitting on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" this year that she only "fake-tried" to get pregnant while they were together.
Now after looking at the logic flaws in this tale, let's consider this "source" and HollywoodLies. This is the same outlet that in April and May published multiple fake news stories about Kardashian splitting from Tristan Thompson. After those "exclusives" were proven wrong, HollywoodLife flip-flopped on Kardashian and Thompson splitting with no acknowledgment that its prior stories were incorrect. Of course, if the webloid really had a Kardashian "source" or "insider," as claimed in all of those articles, it never would've published about a non-existent breakup in the first place.
Now HollywoodLies wants readers to believe that it's the one outlet that got the "exclusive" on Kardashian's reaction to Odom's planned autobiography. Please. The media industry doesn't work that way. Fabrication factories, however, do. They pretend to have insight and inside knowledge when they really don't. After all, Gossip Cop has been told on numerous occasions that those close to the family prefer not to associate with HollywoodLies. Kardashian, understandably, probably isn't thrilled her ex-husband is writing a memoir, but no one is telling that site about any such "fears."
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
