Only recently, it has been reported that Khloe Kardashian could be set to make an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother to support her best friend Malika Haqq, who is currently a contestant on the 2018 series.
The reality star, who is expecting her first child, is desperate to see how her pal is doing – even tweeting last week to her 25.6 million followers: “I am so happy for @ForeverMalika being on CBB but I hate that I can’t watch. I have to know what’s going on in there!! Is she ok? I’m trying to find links! Can anyone help me?”
However, when MTV reported that Khloe could be entering the Channel 5 house, the 33-year-old took to Twitter to categorically shut down any possibility of her being roped in for the current series.

Quote tweeting the article, which suggested the pregnant Keeping Up With The Kardashians star could be making her way into the Elstree compound, Khloe commented: “Nope not true!”
Before Khloe shut down rumours once and for all, suspicion stemmed after a source told The Sun Online: “Everyone is really keen to have Khloé send Malika a video message of support in the house.”
“The team have been working to try and make this happen, it would make for brilliant TV. Just imagine, one of the queens of reality in the place where it all began.”

“How does malika know Khloe tweeted that if she went in on the 3rd and Khloe tweeted that on the 4th?” asked one person on Twitter.

However, it’s likely her twin sister Khadijah could have posted the pictures for her, or another family member or friend.
