Rob Kardashian has taken to Twitter again to reveal he was only joking in his tweet about having a son.
The 27-year-old television personality surprised his five million followers on Thursday evening as he sent out a tweet referring to his child, but he has now tweeted again to say he was only playing.
But it wasn’t just his followers who were fooled by the prank as Rob revealed his mother Kris Jenner emailed him to check.
In his first tweet, he wrote: ‘Happy I got my Son with me for the 4th tomorrow !! Can’t wait to watch fireworks with my little man ! Hope everyone is safe ! X.’
But later he followed that up with: ‘Those who know me know I play and I do NOT have a Son. Y’all got my mama emailing me asking if I have a Son lol goodness hahaha. GOODnight (sic)’
Despite now admitting he was joking, this is not the first time he has alluded to being a father on social media – he hinted about it on Twitter as recently as two weeks ago.
On June 20, the younger brother of Kim tweeted: ‘And to my baby mama I loveeeeeeee you.’
In May of last year he posted an note on Instagram saying: ‘Shout to to God … Shout out Mom, shout out to my son’s mom cuz she been holding me down since high school n shout out to my son Robert the Third. lol.’
The post was later deleted but last year, an insider speculated to Star magazine about the possibility of a Robert Kardashian III.
‘The possibility that Rob may have a child has been the buzz in the Kardashian circle for a while, bit no-one knows for sure,’ a source told the magazine. ‘And no-one will talk abut it.’
And in a Twitter conversation with Nicole Richie back in 2009, he wrote: ‘My son unfortunately doesn’t stay in LA. You know that. Don’t remind me.’
Meanwhile, in a recently released sneak peak of Sunday’s Keeping Up The Kardashians, Rob is shown bonding with his older sisters Kim, 33, and 30-year-old Khloe.
In the clip Kim talks about her psychic’s predictions and what the spiritual advisor thinks her sisters should do about their problems.
As Rob has been struggling with his weight and allegedly even drug and emotional issues, Kim said the psychic has a solution for him.
‘She said you should get a puppy and you’re not bipolar – I asked,’ she tells him.
Despite Kim’s nonchalant approach to Rob’s recent issues, the siblings did seem to be addressing his weight struggles.
