A social influencer who is so desperate for fame has been making up lies about Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Kris Jenner.
Last week, an attention deprived TikTok “star” named Ava Louise claimed she had inside info regarding Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s marriage, which is reportedly on the rocks.
Ava Louise, who has over 600,000 followers on TikTok, said she had irrefutable proof Kanye was having a gay love affair with makeup artist Jeffree Star.
Representatives for both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were forced to come forward to deny the slanderous lie Ava Louise was perpetuating via TikTok.
Ava Louise’s desperate attempt to become famous continued yesterday when she lied and claimed Kris Jenner sent her a cease and desist letter, which thrust her into the headlines again.
The only problem is, Kris Jenner has never even heard of Ava Louise and said she is simply chasing clout and cashing in on the famous Kardashian name.

“We have zero clue who this person is and have not yet taken legal action. However, if she continues to spread lie after lie and a fake letter in a desperate cry for public attention, which she has admitted on record that she’s seeking, then we will have no choice but to take legal action on principle,” a representative for Kris Jenner told TMZ.
Now that Ava Louise has the attention she wants, she could be facing some real legal action from the Kardashian family’s powerful matriarch.
“Perhaps she should spend that time instead seeking the help that she clearly needs to deal with her issues.”

Ava Louise’s perfectly timed publicity stunt comes as President Trump – another liar – was booted from TikTok as well as Instagram, Facebook, and his platform of choice – Twitter – for spreading lies about the 2020 election.
Trump’s disinformation campaign eventually led to a riot at the Capitol building in Washington DC on January 6th which left five people dead.
Although Ava Louise’s blatant falsehoods are unlikely to cause the same type of bloodshed as President Trump’s lies, her actions underscore how easy it is to amplify disinformation on big platforms like TikTok.
