Kim Kardashian insists her little sister Khloé will not be the next Bachelorette, despite what series' creator Mike Fleiss recently suggested.

"I have already been in contact with my dear friend @KrisJenner about @khloekardashian as #TheBachelorette," Fleiss tweeted Friday. [...] any decision regarding @khloekardashian as the new #TheBachelorette will need to be approved by my dear friend @KrisJenner."

#Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss says Khloé Kardashian is in talks to be the next Bachelorette.

Kim called the report BS.

Fake fucking news big time!!!!

Fleiss fired back, claiming Kim was out of the loop and that the potential deal was between him, Kris, and, of course, Khloé.

How would @KimKardashian know??? This is between me and @KrisJenner — and most importantly @khloekardashian !!!

Kim then pulled out the receipts, posting a screenshot of a group text between her mother and Khloé. 

"Are u guys in talks w the [Bachelorette]?" Kim asked.

"No lol," Kris replied.

"Ewwww I mean put some respeck on my name," Khloé added.

Oh really????? Wait a minute....

Fleiss refused to let it go. The TV producer went on to say that The Bachelorette has "strict confidentiality agreements," which is why Kim wouldn't know about any potential casting deal. 

This is when Khloé decided to speak up: "I'm not fucking clickbait right now," she wrote in response to Fleiss' tweet. "Stop or you will be hearing from my lawyers. How insensitive!!"

I’m not fucking clickbait right now. Stop or you will be hearing from my lawyers. How insensitive!!

Fleiss' response?

This is about helping people find true love— nothing more!!! #TheBachelorette

This unnecessary drama took place just days after Khloé's reported split from Tristan Thompson, the father of her 10-month-old daughter, True. The 34-year-old mother is believed to have called it quits after Thompson allegedly hooked up with family friend Jordyn Woods. Sources say the NBA star was spotted making out with Woods—who was known as Kylie Jenner's best friend—at a house party last weekend.
