Kim Kardashian splashes back at Kanye West engagement rumor
Kim Kardashian is splashing back at claims that she and Kanye West could be taking their relationship to the next level.
At a Saturday Halloween bash in New York City, Kardashian rocked a sexy mermaid look with West on her arm, hitting a red carpet in the name of her Midori liqueur endorsement and apparently rumor patrolling.
The whisper in question came from Ryan Seacrest, the radio host and TV personality who serves as executive producer for the E! Network’s franchise of Kardashian reality projects.
“I think we could definitely see an update on this story on Monday,” Seacrest had speculated over the airwaves nearly two weeks ago, while Kim and Kanye were celebrating her birthday in Europe.
The implication being West would be putting a ring on the twice-married -- and still not divorced -- Kim.
“I don’t know where Ryan came up with that,” Kardashian told E! News on Saturday, adding, “Ryan, I’m so mad at you, where did you come up with that? You’re starting rumors.”
Or, perhaps he’s just nurturing his investment? Kardashian confirmed that an engagement isn’t in the cards at this point, but said her birthday festivities were “intimate and very special.”
