Reality stars and tabloids go together like peanut butter and jelly. Khloe Kardashian is no exception, having been the target of numerous phony rumors over the years. It can sometimes be difficult to tell fact from fiction when it comes to the dramatic lives of reality stars like the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but Gossip Cop is here to help you tell the difference. Here are some of our favorite tabloid rumors about the youngest Kardashian daughter’s supposed affairs with Kim and Kourtney’s love interests.
In November 2018, OK! reported that Khloe had been “quietly hooking up” with Scott Disick, Kourtney’s ex and father of her three children. A dubiously-sourced “insider” alleged that the affair had begun after Khloe was “devastated” by Tristan Thomson cheating on her. Gossip Cop debunked this phony story by pointing out that the photos the tabloid used as proof of the relationship had actually been taken earlier that month, when the Daily Mail reported that the two enjoyed a platonic meal out together. Additionally, Disick was in a relationship with Sofia Richie, who he’s still dating. This was a complete non-story.
The following week, OK!’s sister publication, Star, published a very similar story claiming Khloe and Disick had been dating “under the radar” for months. Again, this theory was built entirely on the “evidence” of that platonic lunch meetup the two had, during which they kissed each other on the cheek in parting. It’s a well-known fact that Disick and Khloe are good friends, and have been for a long time, but this tabloid’s “source” claimed that they were falling “head over heels” for one another. Gossip Cop reached out to a reliable source close to the situation, who assured us that the rumor was still false, even after a whole week of time since the last bogus claim.
The following year, the rumor clawed its way back into the tabloid pages. In October 2019, NW alleged that Khloe and Disick had been getting “hot and heavy” following her split with Thompson, citing yet more paparazzi photos of them holding hands in public. “When Khloe clicks her finger and says, ‘Come over,’ he’s there at the drop of a hat,” said yet another questionable tipster. Gossip Cop looked into this claim and once again found it false. Khloe and Disick had stated that July that their hand-holding was just to mess with paparazzi (it worked) and their relationship was closer to sibling love – she even referred to him as her “brother” in an Instagram post.
Finally, just last month, NW shook things up a little bit by dropping Disick and picking up Kim’s husband, Kanye West. The tabloid reported that Khloe, “desperate” for another baby, turned to her brother-in-law as a sperm donor at Kim’s suggestion and he agreed. “At least this way, the baby would know their dad,” said a source, who added that “everyone’s worried” about potential issues arising given Kim and Khloe’s “jealousy and sibling rivalry.” A source close to the situation assured Gossip Cop that the story was completely absurd.
