'Seinfeld' Uncle Calls Cops on Kim K Poser

8/26/2010 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Remember Jerry Seinfeld's Uncle Leo?  He just got a taste of something even more annoying than the show ... seems someone posing as Kim Kardashian posted his name and number on Facebook and it's gotten so bad he had to call the cops ... that's what law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Len Lesser called Burbank police last night after receiving a slew of calls from people who kept asking, "Are you Uncle Leo?"  The 87-year-old couldn't take it anymore so cops came to his house. 

While police were there, the phone rang, a cop picked up and the caller asked if he was Uncle Leo.  The cop asked the caller where he got the number from, and the caller responded, "Kim Kardashian's Facebook."

The officer then did a search and there were more than 100 Facebook pages for KK. 

Police are investigating, and Uncle Leo is just beside himself.

Send back the Royalty Checks if we cant call you Uncle Leo...only fair isnt it?

jerks--they want the glory and the money but not the nonsense that comes with both. Should have found a new career if you didnt want to be called the charachter you pushed on the public, and you collected money for. Get over it or get used to it.

That's so sad, harrassing a nearly 90 year old man.

Some people are so crass.

Dude, sorry, but you going to have to change your number. And only give out the new number to people that you trust.

Awwww, LEAVE HIM ALONE!!!! One of the best! Just 3 days ago I said to my son "I am thinking of a Seinfeld episode with Uncle Leo that cracked me up! Guess which one?". He went through alot of them (because EVERY one of them was priceless!) But it was the one Jerry is dreaming of Leo in prison doing the chin up bar With HELLO written on his knuckles.

Smells like Puppet Master Grandma Kris is pulling another publicity stunt so daughter Kimmie will get more attention.

Too bad Uncle Leo has to take on the stress of the stunt. He doesn't deserve to be treated with no respect.

Bruce Jenner would be so ashamed if he knew half the stuff Granny Kris does for her 3 KKK daughters that he doesn't even know about.
