Kim Kardashian‘s family is not “furious” with her for meeting with Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can correct this fabricated claim. We’re told the story is inaccurate.
According to RadarOnline, the reality star’s relatives are upset Kardashian met with the president to discuss prison reform and sentencing. The site alleges Kardashian’s talk with Trump about pardoning Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother and first-time drug offender who’s serving life behind bars, has “caused a ton of drama with her famous family.” A so-called “Kardashians source” is quoted as saying in unnaturally expository language, “Kanye [West] is so proud of Kim for meeting with the Trump, who he openly supports. But Kris and her sisters do not agree with her decision.”
The same seemingly concocted “source” adds that Kardashian’s siblings and mom “feel that she is being incredibly selfish by ignoring her own true beliefs to follow Kanye’s political agenda.” The alleged insider contends that Kardashian’s meeting with the one person in the world who can have Johnson released from prison has “caused a huge rift between her and her family” and they’re “furious” with her.
Before Gossip Cop gets into the facts, let just look at this logically. Does the often discredited blog really want people to believe that the Kardashians and Kris Jenner would prefer Johnson rot to death in prison rather than having the reality star discuss equitable prison sentences with the president? And how exactly is talking about a pardon “ignoring her own true beliefs to follow Kanye’s political agenda”? This is actually 100 percent the agenda of Kardashian, who tweeted about how “unfair” Jonhson’s sentence was back in 2017.
Of course, this is all coming from the same outlet that we busted just 24 hours ago for absurdly maintaining that Kardashian’s meeting with Trump was to prep her for becoming First Lady in 2024. Oddly, though, this time around RadarOnline made no mention of that cockamamie scenario, even though it published it just yesterday. And, as noted above, these claims stem from the same website that Gossip Cop has repeatedly debunked for running story after story about Kardashian being on the verge of divorcing West. Time has shown those claims to also be untrue, as well.
Gossip Cop reached out to members of the family, as well as a spokesperson, and no one confirmed the website’s politics-over-a-pardon premise. While the outlet routinely hides behind unnamed and untraceable sources, a rep who’s authorized to speak on Kardashian’s behalf tells us the blog’s latest article is simply “false.”
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
