Travis and Kylie were celebrating some sort of maybe-engagement, maybe-marriage moment when a conspiracy that hed been unfaithful gained traction online.
And now big sister Kim Kardashian has blasted the pranksters who boasted about how they staged the picture of the Astroworld hitmakers supposed infidelity on Monday night.
Kim called the faked pap picture – claiming to show Travis nuzzling another womans neck – absolutely disgusting as she accused the scam artists of trying to break up Kylies family.
Kim tweeted on Wednesday: I hate that I am bringing attention to this but this is absolutely disgusting that you would find this funny to mess with Travis & Kylie who just started a family together.
This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!
Bizarrely, Kim initially shared the prankers video on Twitter – giving the him exactly what he wanted: more views – before deleting her tweet and replacing it with a static image.
Khloe seconded her sisters tweet by replying: People are absolutely disgusting!
The mind games this would do to somebody… That is so completely not OK! This person should be so ashamed of themselves! What filth.

Travis strenuously denied the cheating allegations within hours of the picture emerging on Monday night, dismissing the authenticity of the image which had been mocked up to look like it came from news website TMZ.
He wrote: Trolls always wanna create some fake shit to destroy real love. Going over board to make shit look like [its] not is evil.
In the callous hoax video, in which its explained how the picture was faked, YouTuber Christian gloats about how fooling the internet into thinking Travis was cheating.

The YouTuber even joked about giving Travis a hall pass for the next time he cheats – despite adding a cowardly disclaimer that it was not meant to intentionally hurt anyone.
The horribly unfunny hoax comes off the back of a mildly humorous prank played by Yes Theory in which pictures were taken of a Justin Bieber impersonator eating a burrito all wrong.
Though its not in line with the suggestion that a new father was being unfaithful to the mother of his 10-month-old baby. Not cool.
