Khloe Kardashian and Scott Disick may have sent hookup rumors into overdrive after they were photographed holding hands last year, but it looks like fans weren’t the only ones curious about the nature of the duo’s relationship after the photos emerged online.
According to Khloe, Kourtney Kardashian got very upset about the rumors surrounding her sister and longtime boyfriend’s alleged romance, so much so that Khloe is now admitting that she stopped hanging out with Scott for a while until the rumors died down, Hollywood Life reports.
In her interview with Complex Magazine, Kardashian opens up about the rumors surrounding her alleged romance with Disick, telling the publication that she was freaked out when she noticed that Scott grabbed her hand while the paparazzi were snapping photos of them.
“We were filming one time, we were out, there was so much paparazzi and Scott just grabbed my hand, but like interlocked fingers. It was for two seconds and I was like, ‘Ahhhh!’ You don’t interlock fingers with your brother-in-law. It was so weird.”
Kardashian goes on to explain that hand-holding incident was not intentional, noting that Disick mistakenly grabbed her hand instead of Kourtney’s.
“It happened the first time we were in Vegas for Kim’s birthday and accidentally, he grabbed my hand and he thought it was Kourtney and just pulled it and paparazzi got it. We didn’t even realize it. Then the next day everyone was like, ‘He’s holding her sister’s hand!’ and that’s how it started.”
Khloe explains that Scott further fueled the rumors by trying to make the situation into a joke for the cameras.
“Scott wanted to make a mockery of it and that’s when he like, interlocked fingers when we were out one time and they got a picture. I’m hysterically laughing in the photo and pulled my hand and they ran with that, but he finds it funny. We can’t really be mad at those rumors because we do kind of think it’s humorous no matter what we do. Who’s going to sleep with their brother-in-law? This is not Jerry Springer.”
Despite Khloe and Scott’s fun for the cameras, Kardashian admits that the hookup rumors were hard on her sister Kourtney, admitting that she and Scott stopped hanging out for a while in order to spare Kourtney’s feelings.
“When she was pregnant she does [get mad about the rumors] because she’s so sensitive. We would know not to like hang out as much, like she’s pregnant and sensitive and we don’t want to rile her up.”
