Khloe Kardashian announced that her family's renowned Christmas Eve party has been cancelled for the 2020 festive season.
The celebrity was on Twitter chatting to fans when she revealed that the famous family had taken the decision not to hold the party for the first time since 1978.
Khloe explained that the Covid-19 pandemic was to blame for the decision and that rising cases in their state of California meant that large gatherings would not be responsible in the current climate.
The pandemic's grip on the United States has tightened as the northern hemisphere goes through winter and the strain on the public health facilities worsens daily.

Khloe was asked whether the family had taken a Christmas picture yet and replied:
"We have not done anything. No Christmas photos and no Christmas Eve party this year. Covid has taken over."
Khloe responded to another disappointed fan:
"I am so over 2020! (Says everyone) Next year, our Christmas Eve party is going to be so f**ng fire! Covid better be gone by next Christmas."
