Larsa Pippen has insisted that she is still “friends” with Kim Kardashian.
The 47-year-old star gave an interview last year in which she implied that Kim’s marriage to Kanye West was one of the reasons she now has a different relationship with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum.
In May of this year, sources said Larsa was keen to mend her friendship with Kim after the SKIMS founder’s split from Kanye, and she has apparently confirmed that they managed to bury the hatchet when they saw Kim as hers “Girlfriend” called.
She told Us Weekly, “We’re kind, we’re friends. You know what, i guess the whole thing [Jordyn Woods cheating scandal with Tristan Thompson] Situation that happened in front of me somehow dictated how I was perceived by people who didn’t know about it. I’m like, ‘How did I fall for this?’
“I am in love [the Kardashian family], my kids love them. Our families are so closely connected. “
Insiders claimed earlier this year that Larsa was hoping Kim’s breakup with Kanye would allow them to restart their friendship.
A source said: “Larsa feels – and hopes – that sooner or later her friendship with Kim will return to normal, especially now that Kanye is no longer in the picture.
However, the insider also insisted at the time that Larsa had “never really argued” with Kim, 41, but that “Kanye was the problem” that broke their friendship.
Larsa first revealed her feelings last year in an interview in which she talked about her frosty relationship with Kanye.
She said, “If your husband feels threatened by my relationship with you, then I don’t want to be that person.”
In response, a source claimed the Kardashian family all believe Larsa is “poisonous energy.”
During a previous exchange, another source claimed that Kim and Larsa simply broke up as friends.
They said, “The friendship just grew apart over time because life happened.
“Kim is focused on things at home – getting Kanye healthy, her four young children, studying law, and juggling her business.”
