Khloe Kardashian To ‘Bachelor’ Creator: ‘Stop Or You Will Be Hearing From My Lawyers’

UPDATE: Khloe Kardashian slams “Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss’ claims she could be the next “Bachelorette.” And her sister Kim Kardashian West has her back.

The time has come to choose a new Bachelorette, and “The Bachelor” creator Fleiss strongly hinted that Khloe Kardashian may be in the mix.

“I have already been in contact with my dear friend @KrisJenner about @khloekardashian as #TheBachelorette,” he tweeted Friday, after tweeting Thursday that “any decision regarding @khloekardashian as the new #TheBachelorette will need to be approved by my dear friend @KrisJenner.”

“Stay tuned!!!” he tweeted.

Shortly after this late night announcement Kardashian refuted Fleiss’ statements with her own social media announcement calling the whole idea “Fake f—— news big time!!!!”

And Fleiss has already responded, professing to know more about Khloe Kardashian’s situation than her own sister. “How would Kim Kardashian know???,” Fleiss tweeted. “This is between me and @KrisJenner — and most importantly Khloe Kardashian !!!”

And now the subject of the speculation has included her voice to the outrage. Khloe quote tweeted Fleiss’ earlier statement warning him to stop “or you will be hearing from my lawyers.”

 

Kardashian currently appears on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and starred in the reality series’ spin-offs, “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami” and “Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons.”

Variety reached out to ABC, but the network does not comment on casting rumors.

The Bachelorette’s” last season was beset by controversy, with Garrett Yrigoyen eventually picked as the winner by Becca Kufrin despite his history of liking controversial posts on Instagram, including images and memes that mocked liberal women, trans people, undocumented immigrants, and Parkland high school students.

Yrigoyen sat down for an exclusive interview with Variety the day after the “Bachelorette” finale, and said he does not carry the beliefs expressed in the posts.

Colton Underwood, who was eliminated in Season 14 of “The Bachelorette,” is currently in the midst of Season 23 of “The Bachelor,” which premiered Jan. 7. Season 15 of “The Bachelorette” is expected to premiere in May.
