Kris Jenner made headlines this week after being quoted as calling critics of daughter Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy (with boyfriend Kanye West) “hoes” on her Facebook page.
The problem is… it wasn’t Kris’ actual page!
In an article published on Thursday, the UK’s Daily Mail ran a story quoting Kris as posting, “Kim Kardashian is 32 & she’s pregnant, but y’all hoes be 16 with 4 kids and no baby daddy.. & y’all calling her a slut? PLEASE, have a seat.”
While the fake quotes were quickly picked up by media, the Facebook page cited by the British paper is merely a fan page (linking back to an unverified Twitter account, and having only 40,000 “likes”).
Even the bio on the fake Facebook page seems to be a dead giveaway that it’s not the Kardashian matriarch’s actual page.
“Keep your latest UPDATES about the Kardashian/Jenner family.We love Kris Jenner,” the fan page’s bio states. “LIKE IT please! If you’re a Kris Jenner Fan!”
And in the page’s description on the “About” page, it seems to be clear the page is not authored by Kris, stating, “This is for the most AWESOME Mommy in all the world! For the Lovely Kris Jenner I love her a LOT! We love you.”
Meanwhile, Kris’ official Facebook page boasts nearly half a million “likes,” and the last official post on the famed momager’s account was published on December 28.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, on Sunday, Kim announced she and Kanye West are expecting a baby.
“We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us,” the 32-year-old star wrote in a post on her personal website at the time. “Looking forward to great new beginnings in 2013 and to starting a family. Happy New Year!!! Xo.”
