Over the spring and summer, Kanye West was in the middle of one of the worst manic episodes we’ve seen from him. He was regularly doing tweetstorms in the middle of the night, and he started spilling some odd tea about the Kardashians and more. One of the weirder moments was when he tweeted “Larsa” with the thinking-face emoji. Larsa being Larsa Pippen, Scottie Pippen’s ex-wife, and one-time BFF of Kim Kardashian.
Larsa has always struck a lot of people as a thirsty hanger-on to famous people, but before Kanye’s tweetstorm in June, most people didn’t even know that there was some drama between Larsa and the Kardashians. We learned that at some point, Larsa and Kim stopped following each other on social media, and that everyone else in the family stopped following Larsa too. There were rumors that Larsa slept with one of the boyfriends or husbands of the Kardashian-Jenner women, or that Larsa simply knew too much. Well, now Larsa is speaking. She chatted with the Hollywood Raw podcast recently and she spilled a lot of Kardashian tea:
Kanye turned the Kardashians against her? The mom-of-four has now claimed Kanye turned all of the Kardashians against her because he was hurt that she “blocked” his number after getting “drained” by his phone calls: “[Kanye] has literally brainwashed the whole family into thinking… I don’t even know what. He talks so much about me being this and that and this and that. I just feel like Kanye was in a place where he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim.”
Whether she cares about the family snubbing her: “I didn’t feel any type of way. I just felt like, do what’s best for your family. [To Kim,] I love you, you and I are best friends, we’ve been through everything together. I would never do anything to jeopardize our relationship, we are like sisters, like family. But if you have to unfollow me to make your home a better place, then do it. If Kanye feels he and Kim are better without me, then let them be without me. I’m OK with that. Do I look like I’m suffering? Do I look like I’m in pain? I’m OK, I will survive. Was it hurtful? Yes. But do I have love from a lot of other places? Yes. This shall pass too.
Scottie Pippen hated the Kardashians? “I was in a situation when Scottie [her ex-husband] and I had our issues. He didn’t want me to hang out with them, Scottie was not happy about my relationship with them. Scottie didn’t want me to take my kids over to their house.”
Kanye used to call her at all hours: “[Kanye] used to call me at four, five, and six o’clock in the morning. I was the person that would take his calls when he wanted to rant. I would listen to him. I would be like, ‘I love you, you’re the best, things will get better’, I was his go-to person to call when he wasn’t happy with X, Y, and Z. How that turned? Maybe because I blocked him on my phone because I couldn’t bear taking his calls anymore. I can’t, I’m drained. So, I blocked him on my phone. Obviously, that really upset him. So, he turned that into, ‘oh she’s this and she’s that’. [The Kardashians] all started to ride his wave. If you’re that easily swayed, like the wind, then do I really give a f**k? Should I give a f**k? I don’t know.
She dated Tristan Thompson before Khloe: “I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloe. Before Khloe or any of them knew he existed. I was seeing him, I had him come to LA. 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 Khloe. Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever. I’m the type of person that doesn’t chase what’s not for me.”
They accused her of hitting on Travis Scott: Larsa then claimed Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy Travis Scott, 29, accused her of “hitting” on him at a club and branded the rapper “delusional”. “I feel like I ran into Travis Scott one night at a club and Travis called Kylie and said that I was hitting on him. That never happened. So, then they were like, ‘Kanye says she’s this and then she was hitting on Travis’. By the way that never happened. I left with the same people I came with. That never freaking happened. Was he delusional? I know he raps about being the highest in the f**king room. So clearly maybe he was the highest in the f**king room. He imagined all this s**t because it never happened. I would never do that, I would never in a billion years do that.”
You know what? I, um, kind of believe Larsa? I think she was DEEP in the Kardashian-Jenner family and she and Kim were constantly hanging out, and all of it turned. I think Kim probably hated the fact that Kanye was constantly calling Larsa (and sideeye to all of THAT) and Kanye probably said some sh-t about Larsa too. But the Tristan thing… Khloe remains so delusional about Tristan, and if it’s true that Larsa was with Tristan before Khloe, that means Tristan left his first baby-mama for Larsa, and then Khloe became the second side-chick? I don’t know. Mess.
