Kim Kardashian West Feels Betrayed by Larsa Pippen, Insider Claims
For nearly a decade, Larsa Pippen, the estranged wife of Scottie Pippen, has been a pivotal member of the KarJenner’s inner circle. While she was close to Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, she had a very tight bond with Kim Kardashian West.
The women were thick as thieves, often vacationing together and attending events with one another. However, it looks like their relationship suddenly crashed and burned over the summer.
Now, Pippen has given a tell-all interview about her relationship with Tristan Thompson, and her contentious relationship with Kanye West and Kardashian West is reportedly feeling very betrayed.
The entire KarJenner family cut Larsa Pippen off
In July 2020, eagle-eyed fans realized the entire KarJenner family had unfollowed Pippen on all social media. Rumors began swirling that the Real Housewives of Miami alum had been carrying on an affair with Thompon.
At the time, neither the KarJenners nor Pippen chose to address the fallout directly. “I woke up this morning blessed and see that everybody is focused on who I am following and who I am not following on social media,” Pippen tweeted. “I am focused on my children, my new fitness brand Larsapippenfitness, and my relationships in real life. raying that everybody finds peace in their own lives and focus on what brings THEM happiness.”
Larsa Pippen claims she was dating Tristan Thompson before Khloé Kardashian
Now, Pippen has come forward about why she feels she was ousted from the Karjenner inner circle. She also claims that she was dating Thompson before Kardashian swooped in behind her back. Rumors had been swirling that she’d had an affair with Thompson for months.
“I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloé,” she said on The Hollywood Raw. “Before Khloé or any of them 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. Then a week later, or 10 days later, he started seeing Khloé.”
Pippen went on to say that she didn’t care if Kardashian was with Thompson after her and that she was happy the pair were making their relationship work.
Kim Kardashian West feels betrayed by Larsa Pippen
In addition to revealing that she dated Thompson before Kardashian swept in and snatched him up, Pippen’s tell-all interview also explained the animosity between herself and Kanye West.
“I just feel like Kanye was in a place where he, you know, he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim,” she said on The Hollywood Raw podcast. “So, I feel like I was the person that was like, ‘Oh, like, don’t be so close to her because you’re so close to her’ that, you know, that kind of had something to do with it.”“He literally has brainwashed the whole family into thinking that, like, I don’t even know what.”
None of this has sat well with Kardashian West. An insider explained to Hollywood Life,
Larsa was a trusted friend for Kim and everyone in the Kardashian family. So for her to air her thoughts the way she did was a huge betrayal of their trust. The family is more disappointed than anything and they don’t imagine being friends with her ever again. Despite their falling out, Kim hoped that there would be a level of mutual respect where you just don’t say certain things like that. Sadly, there’s no hope of a reconciliation at this point and this seems like her way of trying to stay relevant.
