#AmberRose speaks out
Remember the social media war between Kanye’s ex Amber Rose and his now sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian?
Well, Amber Rose has spoken out in an interview with Entertainment Tonight and says she doesn’t hate Khloe.
In the interview, Rose explained why she initially commented on Kylie Jenner’s relationship with rapper Tyga, saying she felt she had the knowledge to speak about it, “being a dancer at such as young age .”
“I understand why it came across the wrong way. She [Khloe] didn’t have to tweet 11 times and try to humiliate me when the only reason these girls have careers is because their older sister has a little fun on tape,” Amber Rose said.
She ended by saying she never “hated” on Kim’s sex tape and she’s supportive of women “making something out of nothing”.
Australia’s former prime minister Malcolm Fraser has passed away.
