Kim Kardashian's Close Friend Larsa Pippen Addresses Claim She Flirted With Her Ex-Husband, Kris Humphries
By Antoinette Bueno
Larsa Pippen is nipping claims that she recently got flirty with her close pal Kim Kardashian West's ex-husband, Kris Humphries, in the bud.
Larsa responded to celeb blogger Perez Hilton's Instagram on Monday, in which he claimed she and Humphries were spotted "getting friendly and playful" at a VIP Party at Coachella over the weekend.
"Kris Humphries and Larsa Pippen spotted getting friendly and playful at VIP party... Larsa Pippen is one of Kim's best friends," Perez wrote, before comparing her to estranged Kardashian-Jenner family friend Jordyn Woods, who reportedly cheated with Khloe Kardashian's now ex-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. "Do we have another Jordyn Woods situation on our hands? Does this break girl code?"
Larsa responded and said her and Kris' encounter was short, and that it revolved around her estranged husband, NBA star Scottie Pippen. Last November, 44-year-old Larsa filed for divorce from Pippen after more than 20 years of marriage.
"The convo lasted all of 3 min," she hit back. "He told me he's known Scottie since he was 14 and he loves him and I said so do I."
Last month, 34-year-old Kris announced he's retiring from the NBA and addressed his infamously short marriage to Kim in an essay for The Players' Tribune. Kris and Kim tied the knot in a televised ceremony in 2011 and split just 72 days later. Kris admitted he wasn't expecting how his life would change after becoming famous, thanks to his love life -- and how much hate he would receive by NBA fans.
"Look, I should have known what I was getting into," he said. "I was definitely naive about how much my life was going to change. But the one thing that really bothers me is whenever people say that my marriage was fake. There’s definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real. But our actual relationship was 100% real."
"When it was clear that it wasn't working … what can I say? It sucked," he continued. "It's never easy to go through the embarrassment of something like that -- with your friends, with your family…. But when it plays out so publicly, in front of the world, it's a whole other level. It was brutal."
Meanwhile, Kim recently announced she's studying to become a lawyer, and plans to take the bar in 2022. Watch the video below for more:
