Amber Rose caused quite a stir when she released her Muvamoji emoticon app on Thursday, as fans across social media claimed that the model had copied one of her rivals: Kim Kardashian.
There’s no denying the similarities between Kim Kardashian’s Kimoji emoticon app and Amber’s Muvamoji app, but one source claims that’s because Kardashian actually helped Rose when it came to creating her app.
According to an unnamed source for Radar Online, Kim Kardashian has been trying to keep Amber Rose close so that Rose is unable to do any more damage to the image of husband Kanye West of the Kardashian family.
“Kim actually helped Amber Rose launch her own line, Muvamoji, because she wanted to have control over the situation. She wanted to make certain that Amber did not include anything in her line that would hurt the Kardashian brand or her husband’s image.”
Earlier this year, Kanye West and Amber Rose got into a heated Twitter battle, which has since become one of those moments Amber Rose is famous for. The argument began after Kanye took exception to a tweet from Wiz Khalifa, who is the father of Amber Rose’s son.
To kick off the Twitter war, Wiz made mention to KK, which he claims is his personal strain of marijuana. Kanye reportedly misunderstood and believed Wiz to be making reference to his wife, Kim Kardashian.
“I just saw my wife’s initials and reacted. Because that’s my family,” Kanye said in a radio interview with Real 92.3 after the incident. “People think because my wife’s on TV, or because she’s been in an ‘SNL’ skit … It’s open season or something. No, that’s the mother of my kids, and I’m ‘Ye.”
The misunderstanding caused West to unleash one of his epic Twitter rants, during which he brought Amber’s son, Bash, into the mix.
That was too much for Rose, who previously dated Kanye West back in 2010. The mention of her son caused Rose to go off and post salacious details about what she says West enjoyed in the bedroom. Whether the tweets were true or not is open for debate, depending on who you believe.
One thing is certain though — the salacious tweets from Amber Rose mark one of her more notable moments in pop culture, and a reference to the tweet made it into her Muvamoji app.
After the Twitter feud, Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose reportedly met at the home of Kim’s famous momager, Kris Jenner, in an effort to make up and iron things out. Subsequent reports have indicated that Kardashian and Rose are now cool, though some have speculated that Kim is keeping Amber close in an effort to protect the Kardashian name. That seems to be what Radar Online is alleging.
“Kim and Amber do speak now and Kanye absolutely hates it. But Kim knows that Amber has way too much power to cut her loose. She knows too much dirt on them, so Kim offered Amber to help her launch this as a way to prevent any further damage from happening.”
Whether or not Kim is keeping Rose close or she’s actually friends with Amber is unclear, but chances are neither woman is unhappy with the emoji war outcome. Both Kim and Amber are said to be making millions from their respective emoji apps.
In fact, Kardashian claims she crashed the app store back when her Kimoji app was released in December, and reports indicate that Amber Rose has already made $4 million since the launch of her Muvamoji app on March 31.
