The Kardashian family can now be added to the long list of celebrities who have been victims to a prank known as “swatting” — and it appears to have happened to them twice this weekend.
On Friday (Jan. 18), cops swarmed the home of Bruce and Kris Jenner in Hidden Hills after the police received a phone call claiming that someone was shot inside the house and that armed suspects were still inside, according to TMZ.
Reportedly, there were 15 cops on the scene and the street had to be shut down. The caller claimed that he or she was inside the house, hiding in a closet. Bruce, Kris and daughters Kylie and Kendall were all at home and were taken outside while cops searched the house.
Kendall tweets of the incident, “love it when 8 police officers show up at my
door and 10 cop cars are outside my house. just another casual Friday
evening at the Jenner household. #nbd #EveryonesOk,” along with the above picture of her dad posing with the police
Then on Saturday (Jan. 19), FOX 8 reports that the police were called and someone falsely reported an emergency at the Kardashians’ former Malibu home. After finding the house empty, deputies contacted the family and went to their home several miles away.
