Thanks but no thanks: Caitlyn Jenner, 70, canceled on attending party at Hollywood, Florida’s Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Thursday to avoid a potential unpleasant encounter with Khloé Kardashian, 35, amid tension between the pair in recent years.
Scott Disick, 36, and gal pal Sofia Richie, 21, joined Khloe, 35, at Thursday’s opening of the gambling facility.
They ‘looked very in love, holding hands the second before and after the red carpet,’ insiders told Page Six of the couple at the event, which was also attended by celebs including Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Bella Thorne and Joe Manganiello.
Khloé and Caitlyn’s relationship took a hit after the release of Caitlyn’s 2017 memoir The Secrets of My Life, as Khloé took exception to the way her mother Kris Jenner was portrayed.
The hard feelings lingered, as depicted on the family’s E! reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians last year, when Khloé took exception to Kim inviting Caitlyn to the family’s annual Christmas Eve bash.
