I literally can’t go to the toot without there being a new turn in the curious case of the Khloé Kardashian photo that the Kar-Jenner clan is desperate to banish from the earth.

ICYMI: Yesterday, word got out that the Kardashian clan is fighting tooth and manicured nail to have a pic of Khloé Kardashian scrubbed from the internet.

The pic in question is a poolside photo of Khloé that was supposedly taken by an assistant and shared to social media without her permission.

Page Six insists that the image is unedited, but an insider says that the pic has “some edits,” however it’s not to the level of editing that Khloé would usually do before posting.

The Kar-Jenner clan’s lawyers have since sent a heap of legal threats to folks who reshared the pic, demanding that it be taken down.

But despite Page Six’s report that the pic was taken and shared by an assistant without being given the go-ahead by Khloé Kardashian, there are rumours about the true identity of the phantom photographer.

Apparently the photo was actually snapped by the Kardashians’ grandmother, MJ (Kris Jenner’s mother), and was later posted “without permission” on her private account, before being scooped up by the masses.

A handful of media outlets are claiming that the pic was first taken by MJ, and even Deuxmoi backed up the tea.

Well I guess this explains why the entire family is “going into overdrive” to have the pic scrubbed from the internet, as Page Six reported, because I’m sure MJ is devastated that she’s upset her beloved granddaughter, Khloé Kardashian.

What’s heaps suss is that an inside source said that an assistant posted the pic without permission, but this could very well be the Kardashians planting a fake story in order to throw off the scent (which celebrities have been known to do).

Unless MJ took the photo and then an assistant posted it to her private account, which makes no sense to me.

But anyway… not only have the Kardashians been sending out legal letters to people who posted the photo on social media, but Kim Kardashian has been personally DMing people.
