Kim Kardashian tweets fake Justin Bieber phone number for ‘Dancing With the Stars’ votes

The reality TV person’s brother, Rob Kardashian, is currently a competitor on the ABC show. After this week’s episode, Kardashian tweeted this to her 10.7 million followers:

“OMG I have @JustinBieber's phone #!!!! 800 8683402! CALL HIM! He's taking calls for the next hour!!!!”

This statement was retweeted by the Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, who has 1.4 million followers, and more than 100 other people.

So does the Biebs really have an 800 number? Of course not. The digits were actually the “DWTS” voting line for (surprise, surprise) Rob Kardashian and his partner, Cheryl Burke.

Kim later tweeted: “Ok guys obviously I'm joking, that's not Justin's #! But seriously call & vote for @RobKardashian& @CherylBurke 800 8683402!!! Xoxo.”

The next evening, Rob made it through and Chaz Bono — whose famous celebrity relative, Cher, did not send any fake information — was sent home.

It’s worth noting that the judge’s scores are combined with the viewer votes to determine who goes home.

While you’d think everyone would forgive the lie because she sent them digital hugs and kisses, some fans of the other dancing contestants are reportedly upset with the misleading tweet.

“It is totally unfair that Kim did that,” an anonymous “DWTS” insider told Radar. “The other celebs on the show don’t send out fake information to trick people into voting.”

The same person said “some of the contestants think that Rob should be disqualified for having his family cheat like that for him.”

There’s been no word from “DWTS” officials on whether this disqualification will come to fruition.
