Kris Jenner confronted Ryan Seacrest over his new “Live With Kelly And Ryan” job, according to a report. But Gossip Cop can explain why this is fake news and a massive flip-flop from a certain webloid.

Earlier this month, RadarOnline alleged Jenner was “terrified” Seacrest’s new gig on the ABC talk show meant he would quit his role as producer of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” In two stories, the site claimed Seacrest was “done” producing, possibly signaling the end of “KUWTK.” Jenner was described as feeling “betrayed.”

Gossip Cop, however, pointed out that the both tales were garbage. Jenner had no reason to be upset over Seacrest co-hosting “Live” because it was already established when the new job was announced that he’d still continue producing shows with Ryan Seacrest Productions. Nothing was changing, really, aside from the star spending most of the week on the East Coast, which wouldn’t interfere with his producing duties. Now two weeks later, the webloid is flip-flopping and trying to get out of its lies, but is doing so with an equally false narrative.

“Ultimatum? Kris Confronts Ryan Seacrest Over His ‘Live’ Gig,” reads the headline of the new article posted on Thursday. The story asserts, “Ryan Seacrest will not be signing out from his lucrative gig as executive producer of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.'” Of course, he never was, but now the site is acting like there’s been a sudden change after Jenner “FINALLY confronted him for ditching her famous family for Kelly Ripa.”

The outlet quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “After Kris negotiated a higher salary for Ryan to stay working on ‘KUWTK,’ he assured her that he was going to stay and will continue to be actively involved in the production of the her show.” This alleged tipster further adds, “He will now be flying back and forth from NYC to California and Kris is fine with it.”

But it was Seacrest’s plan all along to fly back and forth. He said that on day one of co-hosting “Live.” This isn’t a sudden change after a confrontation with Jenner. Nor is the momager responsible for negotiating a higher salary for Seacrest to keep him working on the show. They are both executive producers on “KUWTK,” and Jenner is not in control of his pay.

Basically, RadarOnline is trying to do damage control for its false stories about Seacrest ditching Jenner and the Kardashians. Yet to cover up its prior misinformation, readers are being served more falsehoods. The truth is really quite simple and always was: Seacrest’s gig with “Live” is not stopping him from producing other shows, so there is no reason for Jenner to be feuding with him over it. Period. Any claims to the contrary are fake news.
