He even went as far as saying he'd need momager Kris Jenner's approval first.
Now, Khloe herself and sister Kim Kardashian have completely slammed Mike for using her tragedy as an opportunity to create hype.
“I’m not f—ing clickbait right now,” Khloe wrote on Twitter . “Stop or you will be hearing from my lawyers. How insensitive!!”
Kim then got involved, tweeting: “Fake f—ing news big time!!!!”
“How would @KimKardashian know???” Mike replied. “This is between me and @KrisJenner — and most importantly @khloekardashian !!!”
That was when Kim shared a screenshot of a text conversation between Khloe and Kris.
Mike finally gave up, tweeting, "One of the things we look for in choosing #TheBachelorette is a great sense of humor... Might be time to look elsewhere.”
It was fun while it lasted?
