Kim Kardashian has lashed out at a Keeping Up With The Kardashians producer after he ‘confirmed’ Khloe Kardashian’s pregnancy.
The reality star, 36, was evidently fuming as she took to her Twitter page on Wednesday morning to clarify reports that Jeff Jenkins was the first to officially announce Khloe, 33, is expecting her first child with Tristan Thompson, 26.
Claiming the family don’t even communicate with Jenkins, Kim fumed: ‘Let me just say this… People who supposedly work with us “confirming” details they know nothing about! Especially when we havent even communicated with them SMH.’
Raging: Kim Kardashian has lashed out at a Keeping Up With The Kardashians producer after he ‘confirmed’ Khloe Kardashian’s pregnancy
Unimpressed: The reality star, 36, was evidently fuming as she took to her Twitter page on Wednesday morning to clarify reports that Jeff Jenkins had announced the news
Kim’s rant came after Jenkins publicly congratulated Khloe on Tuesday night via his Instagram page amid reports that she was ‘four months along’ with her basketball player beau’s second child.
Khloe’s pregnancy makes her the third member of the Kardashian-Jenner family to be expecting a child; younger sister Kylie Jenner, 20, is said to be carrying rapper Travis Scott’s baby and Kim will welcome a baby girl via surrogate in January.
‘Congrats my beautiful Khloe!’ the Instagram post read, alongside a picture of the couple. ‘You will be a great mom! God bless you all three! Mwah!!!’
Jeff tagged himself at Bunim/Murray Productions, the company behind Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Multiple sources have also confirmed the happy news to UsWeekly, People and TMZ.

Both Khloe and Kylie are reported to be due to give birth in February.
‘They are looking at it like a unifying experience for them as sisters,’ a source told People.
Earlier on Tuesday, an insider told People after the news broke that both Khloe and Tristan are ‘absolutely thrilled’ that they’re going to be parents.

Expecting? Jeffrey wrote to Khloe to say that he believed she would be a ‘great mom’
‘This isn’t something they were in a rush to announce to the whole world, and it’s only been in just the past week or so that they’ve felt comfortable telling most of their inner circle,’ the insider explained.
People’s source went on: ‘This is such a wonderful moment for her: not only is she going to be a mother, she is going to be raising a child with a man she truly loves. Everyone is over the moon for them both.’
Khloe revealed on KUWTK earlier this year that she had fertility issues and her Beverly Hills doctor suggested she have children sooner rather than later.
Loved up: The couple have been dating for a year following the end of her romance with another NBA star James Harden and following her divorce from former Laker Lamar Odom
And the star has said she wants many children, just like her mother Kris Jenner did, so she had to get started soon.
Khloe was last seen on social media showing off her abs in a lingerie photo.
Tristan already has a baby named Prince with his ex Jordan Craig.
Khloe has said that she is very happy with her beau, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Proud of her future baby daddy: The Strong Looks Better Naked author shared this photo of Tristan over the weekend with the caption: ‘He’s soooo yummy’
‘My boyfriend is very protective of me,’ she told You magazine recently.
‘Feeling loved and validated and secure is a huge thing. Tristan is protective of my entire family, which is beautiful.
‘And I love that everything we do is as a union. When he speaks, it’s “us” and “we,” and that’s important because it shows that you’re sharing life.’
And she has said on KUWTK: ‘He wants to have, like, five or six kids with me, and that’s lovely.
‘We could start at one and then grow from there.’
Early hint? The cryptic post, which came on her birthday weekend, seemed to suggest that they were making an announcement
Something to share: Khloe Kardashian and boyfriend Tristan Thompson, who are reportedly expecting their first child, could have been hinting at the pregnancy as far back as June when she posted couples photos with the caption ‘dad and mom’
Though February 2018 has been rumoured as Khloe’s due date, the pair raised suspicions of a baby announcement as far back as June.
On her 33rd birthday, she posted affectionate pictures with Tristan with the caption ‘Dad + Mom’.
Naturally, it prompted a flurry of speculation that Khloe was expecting but the very next morning, she complained about having a ‘hangover’ on Twitter.
Subsequently, insiders insisted to TMZ that ‘mom and dad’ were their playful nicknames for one another.
Since the reports resurfaced on Tuesday, neither of the duo has confirmed the reports themselves but Tristan simply tweeted a pair of emoji eyes, that seemed to suggest he was aware of the baby claims.
The couple began dating in September 2016 after meeting on a blind date set up by one of her friends.
‘I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way,’ she told You.
Something to tell us? Khloe hid her tummy behind a large black leather tote as she ran errands in suburban Los Angeles a few days ago
Khloe previously revealed on her family’s TV show that Lamar Odom had been keen to have children with her when they were married.
The reality star and the LA Lakers player, who already had two children from a previous relationship, married in 2009 after just one month of dating.
They broke up in 2013 over the athlete’s drug use and infidelities. But Khloe put their divorce on hold after Lamar overdosed at a Nevada brothel in October 2015 and managed his medical care and recovery. Their divorce was finalized in December 2016.
In season 13 of KUWTK she admitted she had ‘fake tried’ to get pregnant wiht Lamar, explaining: ‘I knew that it wasn’t the right situation to bring a child into and I think I’ve done a lot of covering up for him, like even when it made me look like I was the problem. But I was fine taking on that burden on my shoulders because he had a lot of other deeper s*** to deal with.’
Issues: Khloe confessed earlier this year that she had ‘fake tried’ to get pregnant during her four year marriage to LA Lakers player Lamar Odom, that ended in 2013
Solo: Khloe’s ex-husband Lamar Odom was seen out and about in LA last Friday. It’s not known whether his former wife has told him about her pregnancy
Just a couple of weeks ago, Khloe was trolled on Twitter by critics who accused the gym fanatic of hiding weight gain with baggy clothing.
It came after pictures were published showing her out and about on September 16 wearing a loose sweat shirt over sweatpants.
The 33-year-old 33, slammed ‘rude’ body-shamers via her Twitter , writing: ‘So rude of people to say I’m getting fat because I wore baggy clothes to get laser hair removal.’
‘It’s called being comfortable people,’ the Good American fashionista said in closing on the Twitter post.

On the season finale of KUWTK in June, Khloe was seen visiting fertility specialist Dr. Andy Huang to get an ultrasound of her uterus.
It was partly because big sister Kim was begging her to be a surrogate for her and Kanye West’s third baby.
The exam, however, revealed she had fewer follicles that hold eggs than the average woman her age, promoting her to worry about whether or not she would ever be able to have a child of her own.
But on the doctor’s advice, she ditched her contraceptive pills and the follicles returned to normal.

Big decision: However, after she ditched her birth control pills, the prognosis improved and by the end of the episode Khloe seemed to have decided she wanted to start a family
The experience seemed to convince her that she did indeed want to start a family of her own.
When the doctor warned her that she was about to be her most fertile in a planned week-long stay with Tristan, sister Kourtney teased her by asking ‘why not try?’ to get pregnant — a question that appeared to light up her face.
Twitter naturally responded to the news of Khloe’s pregnancy with a mix of memes, conspiracy theories and witty observations.
‘Working theory: Khloe and Kylie are BOTH Kim’s surrogates. Kim is just collecting babies,’ one user tweeted.
