The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services responded on Friday to an anonymous call to the Kardashian household that claimed Kendall and Kylie Jenner were in danger, but it turns out the whole thing was likely a bogus set-up by a tabloid reporter.
Social workers and police arrived at the home to check on the caller’s allegations of possible abuse of the Jenner teens, but quickly found there was absolutely no credence to the accusations.
A source close to the Kardashian/Jenner family tells Gossip Cop, “Kendall wasn’t even in the country when this happened,” and officials immediately “realized all was fine and they left right away.”
Our insider says the clan believes the call was placed by a tabloid reporter who was possibly trying to make up a story.
Now, the family is determined to find out who is behind the hoax.
A rep for the Kardashian/Jenners tells Gossip Cop the caller’s claims are “ridiculous,” adding, “It’s such a shame that anyone can make up such hurtful and hideous untruths especially when children are involved.”
“We are taking this matter very seriously and investigating to find out who is responsible for fabricating such a terrible story and will take the necessary legal action so that this does not happen again,” vows the spokesperson.
