Paris Jackson is not joining “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” nor is the reality TV series family “adopting” Michael Jackson’s daughter, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s not true.

In a piece titled “Kardashian Clan ‘Adopting’ Paris Jackson,” the National Enquirer contends “Kris Jenner’s latest scheme” to help the ratings of her reality series is to “recruit” Jackson. The supermarket tabloid reports that after Jenner met Jackson at a Grammys party, she “zeroed” in on the King of Pop’s daughter with the goal of having her join “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” “Kris has wasted no time taking Paris under her wing,” says the publication’s alleged source.

“Kris is convinced reality TV is where Paris belongs,” continues the repeatedly disproven magazine, which further contends the blonde beauty is a “perfect fit” for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” After noting how the Kardashian kids lost their dad at an early age, much like Jackson did, the outlet points out that Jackson’s biological mom is battling breast cancer. Shockingly, the publication uses that sad information to falsely exclaim, “Now Kris wants to play Paris’ surrogate mom on TV!” “Kris really thinks she can take Paris to the next level,” adds the tabloid’s ill-informed or possibly made-up “tipster.”

Much of the magazine’s untrue article was picked up from its equally inaccurate sister site RadarOnline, which Gossip Cop busted when it falsely claimed Jenner wanted to turn Jackson into a reality star. It wasn’t true then, and it’s still untrue now, even with the publication adding some new phrases about “adopting” Jackson. Gossip Cop is told this is yet another fake news story.

The problem for the Enquirer, besides being easily caught for printing falsehoods, is that Gossip Cop keeps meticulous files. Back in 2012, the tabloid alleged Jackson and Bobbi Kristina Brown would appear on a reality show. As we accurately reported back then, that story was wrong. Much like that tall tale and scores of other articles from the same outlet, including one that asserted Jenner was replacing Kim Kardashian with North West on the E! series, the latest claim involving Jackson is also completely untrue.
