Rob Kardashian is completely independent this Independence Day, despite teasing fans with a tweet about his "son."

Rob started the drama when he tweeted, "Happy I got my son with me for the 4th tomorrow!! Can't wait to watch fireworks with my little man! Hope everyone is safe!"

He got what he wanted — a reaction. 

Fans asked about this mysterious son, wondering what they missed. Did Rob secretly have a child? Nah. A few hours later, he deleted the tweet and added this note: "Those who know me know I play and I do NOT have a Son. Y'all got my mama emailing me asking if I have a Son lol goodness hahaha. GOODnight."

No, Rob, you got your mama e-mailing you asking about a son. But maybe that's the kind of attention he needed yesterday. (What does he have to do to get a phone call, Kris?)

A source told Us Weekly that this "son" joke has been going on for a while and Rob "loves when people believe him."

This could turn into a Kardashian Who Cried Wolf scenario if Rob ever does father a son and no one believes him. Or maybe he should've just pretended he was hacked, like whoever is hacking all the Glee stars. Then he could pretend he got a guest role on Glee and that's why he was targeted. Even more instant attention!
