A story asserting Khloe Kardashian is “excited” over Tristan Thompson’s possible trade to the Los Angeles Clipper is fake news, and obvious fake news at that. A certain webloid is taking real reports about the Cleveland Cavaliers player and using them for a made-up article. Gossip Cop can explain.

Last week, multiple outlets reported that Thompson could be traded to the Clippers in exchange for DeAndre Jordan coming to the Cavaliers. While it remains just a speculated possibility for now, HollywoodLife is claiming it has “EXCLUSIVELY learned” Kardashian’s reaction to the potential deal. The site asserts, “Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson might be going through a major life change soon! No, we’re not talking about their rumored pregnancy.”

To be clear: HollywoodLies, as it’s nicknamed, wants readers to believe it has genuine insight on her feelings about a trade, but the blog only thinks Kardashian’s pregnancy is “rumored”and not ac tually confirmed. If the online publication truly had a legitimate “source,” as it goes on to claim, it wouldn’t make comments like “the 33-year-old’s rumored pregnancy.” What’s particularly odd is that this purported snitch maintains Kardashian “wants her baby to be a California kid,” but the outlet still isn’t sure that she’s really pregnant.

As for what else this alleged tipster has to say, the almost assuredly fictional “source” states the obvious by contending, “Khloe is freaking out and totally excited about the possibility of Tristan being traded to an NBA team in Los Angeles. It would be the best scenario for her to be able to be back in LA close to her family on a more full time basis.” It doesn’t take a purported insider to realize that Kardashian would be happy if Thompson’s career was based in her hometown. What, she should be disappointed over the prospect?

HollywoodLies is taking what anyone would rationally and reasonably guess, and passing it off as a scoop while simultaneously admitting it doesn’t know if Kardashian is pregnant. This makes it clear that there is no inside access behind the webloid’s supposed “exclusives” like this one. They’re simply manufactured stories, and this is a perfect example of real news (a possible trade) being twisted into fake news (Khloe’s reaction). And whether the deal goes through or not, Gossip Cop expects the outlet will soon claim to know Kardashian’s feelings on the result. We’ll be sure to expose that made-up tale, too, when the time comes.
