Khloe Kardashian launches Twitter assault on Sunrise hosts
MORNING TV show Sunrise has found itself in a Twitter stoush with Khloe Kardashian after the celebrity's PR people pulled the plug on an interview this morning.
The blue has attracted international attention, with at least one of Khloe's Twitter followers claiming the Aussie presenters were "unprofessional".
The Twitter claims and counter claims came after TV screens suddenly went to black when Sunrise presenter Sam Armytage asked about Khloe's baby, North.
While discussing the new Kardashian Kollection, which includes a baby range, Sam asked , "I guess the baby line was inspired now with lots of nieces and nephews running around. How's baby North going?"
Khloe began to answer the question, while glancing sideways off-screen, and then the satellite feed suddenly disappeared.
Sunrise producers at first thought it was a technical glitch, but a source in the studio in LA says her people instructed them to go to black.
A local representative for the reality television star has apologised.
Sunrise later Tweeted they believed the interview had been pulled, which drew an angry response from Kardashian.
"Why would I cut an interview short because of North? Get over your self Sunrise... The call dropped... stop reaching for a story," she tweeted, before following up with "You are so f****** desperate!", three minutes later.
Other posters on Kardashian's Twitter feed came to her defence.
"Smile Khlo! They are not even worth it! ❤️ hope your okay xo," wrote one.
"Khloe answered the questions. The presenters acted really unprofessional and immature afterwards," added another.
