Kim Kardashian furious with prank caller

Kim Kardashian is furious after her family were caught up in a prank shooting.

The reality TV star - who is pregnant with her first child with her rapper boyfriend Kanye West and is due to give birth in July - has hit back after her mother Kris, step-father Bruce and sisters Kendall and Kylie became the latest victims of a 'swatting' incident yesterday (01.18.13) that saw heavily armed officers show up at their door in Calabasas, California, after a hoax caller claimed a shooter was in the house and they heard a gun being fired.

After hearing about the incident, Kim, who is currently in the Ivory Coast, Africa, blasted the prank caller on her Twitter site, saying: "Just got a call from my mom telling me about this prank call that someone was shot in their home and 15 swat team & 3 helicopters showed up!

"These prank calls are NOT funny. People can get arrested for this! I hope they find out how is behind this. It's dangerous & not a joke!"

The Kardashian family aren't the first celebrity victims of such a hoax.

Police were called to Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills home on Thursday (01.17.13) by a prank caller who claimed an armed robbery was taking place but they found no crime had been committed.

A 12-year-old child also previously targeted Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber's homes in a series of elaborate prank burglaries.

Police were called to the 34-year-old 'Two And A Half Men' star and the 18-year-old Canadian popstar's homes, along with a number of other celebrity owned properties over the past few months, after they received anonymous calls claiming the houses were being robbed and in some cases victims had been taken hostage.

A 12-year-old suspect from California was arrested for making the prank 911 calls in December.

Police were also called to Simon Cowell's home in November in what was the latest in a string of celebrity swattings last year - a deliberate attempt to trick an emergency service into dispatching a response team - and officers were also called to Miley Cyrus' home in August after a caller claimed her home had been broken in to but when they arrived at the scene, they discovered it was empty.
