Khloé Kardashian dismayed at The Bachelor’s insensitive response to her breakup

Posted in Relationships.

As Khloé Kardashian attempts to recover from the upsetting news that her partner Tristan Thompson has again been unfaithful, she’s also facing a barrage of related gossip – and she’s just made it clear she’s not going to stand for it.

“How insensitive!!”

On the weekend, Khloé hit out at The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss who had been tweeting about her in the context of the brokenhearted mum-of-one becoming the next Bachelorette.

Mike said on Twitter that he’d been in touch with Kardashian momager Kris Jenner about the possibility of Khloé starring in the show.

Khloé, who appears to be getting through a very tough time by focusing on her baby daughter (who she’ll now co-parent with estranged partner Tristan) hit back calling this commentary “insensitive”.

“I’m not f*cking clickbait right now,” she posted on Twitter in response to Mike’s tweets. “Stop or you will be hearing from my lawyers. How insensitive!!”

Kim Kardashian also tweeted about the Bachelorette rumours.

“Fake f*cking news big time!!!!” she wrote fiercely, coming to the defence of her distressed sister.


Khloé’s got enough to deal with without someone dressing up her break-up as a ratings-booster. We already know that her response to her relationship playing out publicly is one of mortification. 

After Tristan’s bad behaviour made headlines back in April, Khloé admitted she felt incredibly embarrassed by the public attention and judgment.

During and after True’s birth Khloé said she felt shy around nurses and hospital staff who she felt might be judging her for allowing Tristan to be at the birth.

“This is between me and Kris Jenner”

Insensitive Mike did not let a little thing like common decency get in the way of pushing his show, though. He began publicly floating the idea of Khloé as Bachelorette just two days after the latest Tristan scandal erupted, seeking to make lemonade out of someone else’s lemons.

“This is between me and Kris Jenner,” Mike posted in response to Kim’s clap-back.

Putting this in perspective, Khloé discovered that the man she had hoped to spend the rest of her life with had cheated with her sister Kylie’s best friend Jordyn. Khloé and Jordyn had been confidantes for years and nobody in the family saw this coming. 

“The worst pain is getting hurt by a person you explained your pain to,” Khloé posted on Instagram the day after her world turned upside down.

Mike’s got form

Mike could not leave well enough alone, quickly realising that Khloé’s misfortune and this Twitter spat was a marketing opportunity for him.

“One of the things we look for in choosing #TheBachelorette is a great sense of humor … Might be time to look elsewhere,” Mike shot back at the sisters – and honestly we’re not sure if his timing could have been any worse.

He then continued to tweet about Khloé and the KarJenners taking plenty of digs before finally posting “agree to disagree”.

It’s hardly surprising that the creator of a franchise which routinely manipulates people’s feelings for entertainment would behave in this way, now is it?

Nothing like kicking someone when they’re down, Mike. We will not accept this rose.
