Khloe Kardashian Sets the Record Straight about Alleged Crumbling Empire

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on January 13, 2012 0 Comments

Khloe Kardashian has responded to claims that her family’s empire is crumbling by posting a link to a Forbes article on her blog. However, it only addresses a very small percentage of the problems that Khlo is currently experiencing.

Her family is being attacked from all sorts of different angles—there’s the website trying to boycott the Kardashians that Kim Kardashian is currently suing; allegations that Khloe’s real dad was not Robert Kardashian; claims that Kim is a home wrecker; and rumors that some of the family’s products are produced in sweatshops. Just about every day, something new and negative about the reality show stars seems to surface.

But it seems Khloe Kardashian is the one currently going through the toughest time right now—in addition to the allegations about her dad, she’s having to deal with a story surfacing about Lamar Odom enjoying himself a little too much at a strip club.

However, she’s still making her sisters her top priority. A recent NY Post article tried to demonstrate that the Kardashian empire is crumbling by claiming that Kim Kardashian’s short marriage led to lost contracts, fewer magazine covers, and lower ratings for the sisters’ shows. However, the Forbes article Khloe posted on her blog says that the story wasn’t very well-researched and comes off as “cat-fight mean.” Apparently some claims it made were way overblown—the owner of a single restaurant was the cause of fewer nightclub appearance for Kim, and the end of a contract for one single brand was the cause of less endorsement deals.

So basically the story made a mountain out of a molehill, but it’s going to spread across the web like wildfire since there are so many people that would love to see the Kardashians fall. Here’s what Khloe Kardashian said about her decision to post the article in question on her blog:

I know this comes with the territory and I normally would never pay one ounce of attention to it, but it’s unfortunate when a news publication puts out inaccurate information without doing any fact checking—it’s just not fair to the readers who see this information.

So Kim Kardashian is fighting the boycott movement with a lawsuit, and now it seems that Khloe is also getting involved in the fight for her family’s image. Most of the times celebs will just ignore rumors or have their reps issue a simple denial, but it’s not hard to see why the girls have felt the need to respond to the recent slew of rumors about them—the stories just won’t stop coming, and they might actually start doing some damage to the Kardashian brand.

The family certainly isn’t all bad, but their materialistic lifestyle and their overexposure has just become too much for some people—in addition to their multiple reality shows, Kim Kardashian has roles in a movie and on TV, and she and her sisters have endorsed numerous products and are about to take over little girls’ bedrooms with their own Barbie dolls. So since so many people are simply getting tired of seeing them, of course, the tabloids are going to start trashing them more and more.

So how do you think all of this will play out? Will the Kardashians win in the end and be more popular than ever, or will all the negative press that they continue to get finally cause the fall of their empire? Sound off in the comments!
