Khloé Kardashian Threatens Legal Action Against 'The Bachelor' Creator for Implying She Might Actually Be the

Following the news that Tristan Thompson cheated on Khloé Kardashian with long-time family friend Jordyn Woods, fans started campaigning for the reality star to find love as the next Bachelorette. When the Bachelor series creator started tweeting to imply she would be on board for the show's next season, however, Khloé tweeted back threatening legal action.

  • Following the latest round of cheating drama with Tristan Thompson, fans started tweeting their hopes for Khloé Kardashian to find love as the next Bachelorette.
  • Modern Family star Sarah Hyland brought attention to the idea (opens in new tab) when she replied to a fan's tweet about it. Next, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss got on board and started tweeting about the possibility of Khloé as the next Bachelorette himself. 
  • When Kim Kardashian shot the idea down and Fleiss insisted it was a possibility, Khloé got involved herself (opens in new tab), going so far as to threaten legal action against Fleiss.

Khloé Kardashian is not going to be the next Bachelorette, and she might just sue you if you imply she is. At least, if you're the creator of the Bachelor franchise and you use her name and recent round of heartbreak (opens in new tab) as "click-bait" for your show, that is.

In case you missed the buildup to the Khloé-threatening-to-sue-The-Bachelor-creator drama, here's a recap:

Earlier this week, Modern Family star Sarah Hyland, who happens to be dating Bachelor Nation alum Wells Adam and who is, totally unironically, a big fan of Khloé Kardashian (opens in new tab), got super-excited when a fan suggested Khloé to be on the next Bachelorette.

Then, Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss got on board with the idea in a big way, and started posting tweets that implied Khloé might be on board as the next Bachelorette for real, going so far as to claim he was in talks with Kris Jenner (opens in new tab) about the idea.

Kim Kardashian jumped in (opens in new tab) at this point to shut down the rumors and scold Fleiss for his role in perpetuating them.

Things escalated quickly when Fleiss fired back at Kim, writing, "How would @KimKardashian know??? This is between me and @KrisJenner — and most importantly @khloekardashian !!!"

Fleiss then tweeted that Kim wouldn't know if Khloé were the Bachelorette (opens in new tab) heir apparent anyway, thanks to the show's intense confidentiality agreements.

Kim eventually tweeted screenshots of a text chain between her and Kris to help fully shut down the rumors:

And this is where Khloé comes in. The reality star tweeted a personal denial of the Bachelorette rumors and even threatened to send her lawyers after Fleiss if he continued to imply she was doing the show.

"I’m not f*cking clickbait right now," she wrote. "Stop or you will be hearing from my lawyers. How insensitive!!

So tl;dr, it looks like The Bachelorette will have to find someone other than Khloé Kardashian to star in its next most dramatic season ever.
