Kylie Jenner hit back at Alex Rodriguez’s bold claims that she talked about ‘how rich she is’ when they conversed at the Met Gala back in May.
The athlete had told Sports Illustrated that during the dinner, the Kylie Cosmetics founder, 21, talked about ‘Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.’
But taking to Twitter on Tuesday, the billionaire clapped back: ‘Umm no i didn’t. We only spoke about Game of Thrones,’ followed by shrug and facepalm emojis.
No holding back: Kylie Jenner has hit back at Alex Rodriguez for claiming she talked about ‘how rich she is’ at the Met Gala back in May, leading the sportsman to quickly backtrack
Sorry, that? Kylie hit back at A-Rod’s interview publicly to say that it wasn’t truthful
Alex seemed happy to right his wrongs and himself took to social media to clear things up after realising he may have caused offence.
He wrote: ”OMG that’s right @KylieJenner!! It was me talking about you and your makeup line and how much my girls love you. #GOT #respect #alllove’.
He had also said in his Sports Illustrated interview that he and Kylie had been on a ‘great table’ although he did struggle to remember some of the names.
He’s got something to say: Alex in turn, responded and admitted he had not got it right – it’s likely he had meant his original comments to be quite playful
He said: ‘The black guy from The Wire—Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife. Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is. Versace—Donatella.
‘We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from Rich Asians, the lead. Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.’
Kylie was at the same table as Jennifer and Alex not just because they are friends, but also because both women were dressed by Versace.
Uh-oh: Jennifer Lopez’s fiancé Alex Rodriguez likes to keep talking points to baseball, his new career as a sports broadcaster, his two daughters and his fiancée Jennifer Lopez
No he didn’t! The athlete dished to Sports Illustrated about what Kylie Jenner talked about at the Met Gala dinner. From left, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer, Kylie and Kendall
Looking hard: And at the Gala, held in May at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art, Kylie memorably was glancing at Jennifer’s famous bottom
Jenner has been the talk of the celebrity world ever since she became the youngest person to become a billionaire thanks to Kylie Cosmetics.
So it’s no wonder that she was – if A-Rod is right – boasting about her money.
But Jenner often tries to downplay her success, making it seem more like hard work married with luck.
Lopez has a habit of not dishing on other celebrities after she was criticized for trashing Cameron Diaz and Gwyneth Paltrow in a Movieline cover story in 1998 so it will be interesting to see if she comments on Alex’s faux pas.
At the Met Gala all seemed fine with Alex and Jennifer and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars.

The 2019 Met Gala is also where Kylie was caught checking out J-Lo’s bottom.
Kylie and Alex seem to go back a bit. They were also photographed together at the 2018 Met Gala along with Kim Kardashian and Lopez.
The magazine also talked to Jennifer, who described her first meeting with Alex: ‘We shook hands, and it was this weird electricity for, like, three seconds,’ she said.

Sitting pretty… for now: Alex took the latest cover of Sports Illustrated to talk about his comeback
‘Three to five seconds of looking at somebody right in their eyes, and getting stuck.’
The World Of Dance star also said that they balance each other out because she is more creative and he is more numbers.
‘I’ve been in the public eye, I’ve navigated the media in a certain way, I’m creative and artistic and have all these skill sets,’ she offered.
‘He’s a business-minded guy who knows math and numbers and money and equity and all that stuff-like, EBITDA [Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization], right? What I was missing, he kind of had. And what he was missing, I had.’
Alex also addressed his fall from grace when he was suspended from baseball in 2014.
‘I fell from the Empire State Building. Nobody pushed me. I f***ing jumped. No parachute. I have no one to blame for myself. But what’s changed is, I got my a** humbled. I paid a deep penalty. I’ve learned lessons. And I’m different.’
Family life: Alex and Jennifer each have two children from previous partners
