A story about Khloe Kardashian “spoiling” Tristan Thompson after his injury was made up. While it’s of course true she wants the Cleveland Cavaliers player to have a comfortable recovery, the specific details in this article are actually manufactured. Gossip Cop can explain all the ways it’s obvious this report was fabricated.

The story in question comes from HollywoodLife, which is announcing, “Khloe Kardashian’s Spoiling Tristan Thompson With Massages, Love Notes & More After Injury.” The first indication that this is an illegitimate “exclusive” is the timing. Thompson injured his calf during a game on November 1. Two weeks have gone by and the athlete is already halfway through his expected recovery period. If the webloid really has a “source close to Khloe,” as it goes on to claim, why is the site only just now learning how the couple is handling the injury? A significant amount of time has passed.

The second sign this is an inauthentic piece is the very first quote from that “source,” who supposedly asserts to the outlet, “Khloe’s been on the road filming ‘KUWTK’ with her sisters, but that hasn’t stopped her from spoiling her man Tristan while he recovers from hurting his leg.” No real person would say “her man Tristan” in conversation like that. There’s also awkward phrasing in a subsequent quote: “When Khloe can not be by his side in Cleveland, and cooking for Tristan, she makes sure his favorite restaurant in their neighborhood in Cleveland delivers his favorite foods.” There is no need to repeat “Cleveland” in that sentence. Further suggesting these quotes were concocted is the line about Kardashian giving Thompson “sensual massages.” Who would really leak that? Perhaps it’s the same non-existent “source” HollywoodLies, as it’s nicknamed, used when it claimed to know about Kardashian and Thompson’s sex life during her pregnancy.

Speaking of the pregnancy, that’s the third red flag in this story. It makes no mention of Kardashian being pregnant, even though that seems like it should be a relative component. How is the mom-to-be dealing with Thompson’s injury while experiencing all that goes along with pregnancy? HollywoodLies’ almost assuredly fictional “source” either doesn’t know, or the outlet decided to not to address the pregnancy since just days ago it questioned Kardashian’s baby bump and wondered if she’s actually expecting. You see, the online publication has been going back and forth on whether or not she’s really pregnant. But if the blog really had inside access, there’d be no mystery.

To recap: HollywoodLies has concocted a narrative about how Kardashian is “spoiling” Thompson after his injury, even though that injury took place two weeks ago. The tale is filled with eyebrow-raising quotes and says nothing about the couple awaiting the birth of their first child. It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to realize this shoddily-constructed “exclusive” was manufactured instead of genuinely reported. And while Gossip Cop is told that Kardashian is “taking care” of Thompson as best she can and is trying to help him as much as possible, nobody really shared the purported details that are being spread by the webloid.
