Kendall, Kylie Jenner Child Abuse Claim: Police Respond To Prank Call

The Kardashian-Jenner household are the latest celebrities to fall victim to a prank that involves the police.

TMZ reports that police and child protective services responded to an anonymous call reporting possible abuse claims against Bruce and Kris Jenner's teenage daughters Kylie and Kendall.

An anonymous caller rang authorities on Oct. 26 claiming the girls were in danger. Police responded to the phone call but quickly realized it was a prank.

A source close to the family say the complaint was "ridiculous," especially since Kylie, 15, wasn't even in the country on the day the caller warned she was in danger.

The caller has yet to be identified, but sources tell TMZ the Jenner family suspects it might have been the work of a tabloid reporter. The family is not laughing off the prank and intend to bring them to justice.

"Among the several ridiculous accusations, all of which were proven to be false, this situation cannot go without being addressed. It's a shame that anyone can make up such hurtful and hideous untruths especially when children are involved. We are taking this matter very seriously and investigating to find out who is responsible for fabricating such a terrible story and will take the necessary legal action to ensure this does not happen again," a rep for the family told E! News.

The Jenners aren't the only celebs who are the victims of anonymous callers using the police for their pranks. Earlier this month, Justin Bieber, Miley Cryus and Ashton Kutcher were all subjects of "swatting pranks," or when callers report fake emergencies and force police to respond, when there was no emergency.
