Reality star Khloe Kardashian has come to her sister's defense in light of recent accusations by video vixen Amber Rose claiming Kim Kardashian ultimately ended her romance with ex-boyfriend Kanye West.
While Khloe admitted they may have a general attraction to one another, she said Kim and Ye have never officially hooked up.
"Kanye and Kim are friends. I love Kanye. Kanye is friends with Lamar [Odom] and myself. Kanye has been friends with Kim for a few years now. They at one point a few years ago [after dating Reggie Bush], they were talking and trying to go on a date here and there but it just didn't work out. ... I don't know Amber. A lot of people like to use my sister's name for their own benefit. I don't know but everything from even him being around my mom, him being around Lamar or even his kids, it's never been on that level. I do know that they're friends and I do think they might have that feeling for each other, I just don't think its worked timing wise." ("Sway in the Morning")
Last month, Rose said it was vital she let the world know about Kim and Kanye.
Rose went on to reenact her Star interview, paraphrasing what she told the reporter. "Kim is the home wrecker, I'm not the home wrecker. I don't date men in relationships; I don't do that to other women," Amber said. "I got frustrated and I said it." Part of the frustration came from the media-savvy Kardashian family, Amber said. "I feel like Kim and her family, they manipulate the media and they want people to believe what they want them to believe," she said. "I just had to put the truth out there and I had to get it off my chest." (RapFix)
Following her tell-all sitdown, the Philadelphia-bred model released a statement defending her stance.
"I know there has been a lot of rumors circulating the internet today. After being asked the same questions over and over in every interview for so long i had to be honest and get this off my chest ... I don't lie, i don't embellish I'm not trying to hurt anyone just setting the record straight. #FAME is a Crazy thing But I'm so thankful I have a AMAZING husband that Loves and supports me to the fullest he's my Angel and soulmate. Thank u Rosebuds and Rosestuds for understanding me Muva loves y'all so much" (Who Say)
In her exclusive Star interview, Rose did not hold back on exposing Kardashian.
"Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together," Amber exclusively told Star. "She's a homewrecker!" According to Amber, she was dating Kanye when he and Kim first hooked up -- and Kim was dating NFL star Reggie Bush! "They were both cheating," Amber, 28, said. "They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other." Amber says it was Kim, 31, who instigated the whole affair by calling, texting and sending racy photos of herself to Kanye. "She was sending pictures, and I was like, 'Kim, just stop. Don't be that person,'" but apparently Kim didn't care enough to respond when Amber emailed her for an explanation. "I thought at least she'd be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded." Amber slammed Kim for her cheating ways. "It's very important that us women stick together and we don't f**k each other over like that." (Radar Online)
After hooking up in 2008, Amber Rose and Kanye West called it quits two years later.
