Larsa Pippen, a former friend of the Kardashian-Jenners, is speaking out on why she is no longer close with the famous family.
In an explosive interview with the “Hollywood Raw” podcast posted Monday, the former star of “The Real Housewives of Miami” claims Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West “brainwashed the whole family” against her.
“I just feel like Kanye was in a place where he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim, so I feel like I was the person that was like, ‘Oh, don’t be so close to her because you’re so close to her’ that kinda had something to do with it,'” Larsa claimed.
“I don’t want to be the trouble in your relationship. If your husband feels threatened by my relationship with you, then I don’t want to be that person. I got my own ----.”
In the episode, Larsa mentioned a supposed incident where she claims Travis Scott, the ex-boyfriend of Kim’s sister Kylie Jenner, thought she was hitting on him at a club and told Kylie.
“That never happened,” Larsa said in her denial. “That never freaking happened. Is he delusional? I would never in a billion years do that.”
Larsa also claims that Kanye frequently called her in the early morning — which prompted her to block his number.
Reportedly, this made Kanye “really upset,” causing him to talk about Larsa in an unflattering way to Kim and her sisters.
“[The Kardashians] all started to ride his wave,” she explained. “If you’re that easily swayed, like the wind, then do I really give a ----? I don’t know. Was I hurt by it? Yes. But at the same time, I’m like… I’ve done nothing. I’ve never done one thing. I’ve been the most honest and truthful best friend to all of them.”
Earlier this year, after fans noticed that Kim and sisters Kourtney and Khloé were no longer mutually following Larsa, a source told Us Weekly in June that “Kim started actually unfollowing Larsa end of last year” because “she wanted to reset [her IG followers] just to her family and childhood friends.”
That same month, after Kanye tweeted and then deleted “Larsa [thinking emoji]” without any context or explanation, Larsa posted an IG Story that said she is “focused on my children, my new fitness brand Larsapippenfitness, and my relationships in real life” and not on “who I am following and who I am not following on social media.”
Though Larsa says the supposed drama between her and the KarJenners is “hurtful,” she says she is not “suffering.”
“This shall pass, too,” she added.
In the bombshell interview, Larsa also denied hooking up with Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloé’s daughter True, but did admit to dating him before Khloé.
“I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloé. Before Khloé or any of them even knew he existed. I was seeing him. I had him come to L.A., I brought him to a party Kim had. I introduced him to all of them,” Larsa claimed. “Then a week later, or maybe 10 days later, he started seeing Khloé. Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever.
“I’m the type of person, I don’t chase what’s not for me. I will never chase a man. I will never put a leash on a man. I don’t do that,” she added. “I feel like, let you be great. If you want to be with other people, go ahead. I’m great by myself.”
Despite this, many outlets, including People, say Larsa was the first person to tell the Kardashians about Tristan’s 2019 reported affair with Kylie’s now-ex-BFF Jordyn Woods at a party. (Jordyn later denied hooking up with Tristan, except for a goodbye kiss that she claims he initiated.)
In regard to reports that say Khloé and Tristan are back together, Larsa says she is happy for the two.
“I love them together. I feel they have a beautiful baby together. They need to work it out. If they love each other, then God bless.”
