Khloe Kardashian may have had her life and heart torn apart by on-off boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s constant cheating – but some fans think it’s all a ploy to create as much drama as possible for the family’s upcoming new reality show
Kardashian fans are sceptical about the constant drama that haunts the fame hungry family and have accused Kris Jenner of orchestrating a range of disasters and life moments just to generate extra press for their upcoming new show.
Fans were distraught back in 2020 when the Kardashians announced their E! show was coming to an end – with the final episode airing last summer – but their brand new Hulu show is due to start streaming imminently, prompting some fans to wonder if recent events in the family’s life have been organised to create must-see TV.

In recent months, the Kardashian family has been rocked by Kim and Kanye West ’s marriage split, Khloe and Travis Barker’s engagement announcement, Kylie and Travis Scott’s second pregnancy news – and Khloe and Tristan Thompson’s messy love affair.
Now some fans are wondering if Kris has had a hand in a lot of the decision making of such events knowing camera crews would be on hand to capture all the highs and lows.
Proposing the suggestion, one fan suggested on Twitter : “Kris Jenner is making sure the Hulu show got as much content as possible: Kourt and Travis’ engagement, Kylie’s pregnancy, Kim and Pete’s relationship and now Tristan cheating on Khloe for the third time.”

Another fan is convinced that Tristan Thompson’s recent confession that he fathered a third child behind Khloe’s back and offered an embarrassing online apology to the reality star could also have been masterminded by Kris.
The fan proposed: “Wouldn’t it be crazy if Kris Jenner planned this as a publicity stunt for ratings lmao They do got a new show coming.”
Another concurred, tweeting: “half of me feels like Momager Kris orchestrated all of this to generate sympathy for Khloe. Especially if she launches something new soon. Either way, shame on him!”
Khloe and Tristan’s romantic meltdown seemed to be a trigger point for many, with another suggesting the re-emergence of Khloe’s ex-husband Lamar Odom could also be linked to the show.
They tweeted: “Tristian did all that talkin to Lamar about Khloe just to turn around and have a baby on her! I can admit tho he is consistent in makin sure Khloe unhappy. Kris Jenner couldn’t have orchestrated all this any better if she wanted to.”
The conspiracy theories might sound wild to some, but many Kardashian fans will know that Kris has allegedly willingly thrown her closest family members under the bus in pursuit of fame.
Back in 2007, Kim was at the centre of scandal when a sex tape involving her and rap star Ray J was leaked online – five years after it was filmed.
The sex tape shot Kim to fame and has been regarded by many as the catalyst for bringing the entire Kardashian family into the spotlight – kick starting the process which makes them unavoidable today.

It has long been speculated that Kris herself was the one to leak the sex tape in order to begin a media frenzy and to bring attention to the family.
And indeed in 2016, a biographer named Ian Halperin claimed: “It was Kris who engineered the deal behind the scenes and was responsible for the tape seeing the light of day,” in his book Kardashian Dynasty.
The rumours have prompted many fans to wonder if some of the ‘drama’ captured on the Kardashians’ reality shows is even real and if many scenes are indeed created purely for ‘entertainment’.
