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.

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.

Jenner has been the talk of the celebrity world ever since she became the youngest person to become a billionaire thanks to Kylie Cosmetics.    

Forbes caused some controversy when she was labelled the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire with some arguing that she is hardly self-made as her celebrity status and famous family meant she had a huge platform to create her brand from.   

Meanwhile, the 2019 Met Gala is also where Kylie was caught checking out J-Lo’s bottom.

Sports Illustrated also interviewed Jennifer who gushed about her first ever meeting with the sportsman. 

She described her first meeting with Alex: ‘We shook hands, and it was this weird electricity for, like, three seconds,’ she said.

‘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.’
