Claiming she has ‘done nothing’ to cause a rift, Larsa alleges Kanye turned against her when she blocked him after getting sick of his constant early morning calls.
The jewellery designer, 46, told Hollywood Raw podcast: ‘[Kanye] has literally brainwashed the whole family into thinking… I don’t even know what.
Shocking claims: Kim Kardashian’s ex-BFF Larsa Pippen has claimed Kanye West ‘brainwashed’ the star and her family against her
‘He talks so much about me being this and that and this and that. I just feel like Kanye was in a place where he really didn’t trust anyone with Kim.’
Larsa said that she believes it was blocking Kanye’s calls which caused the issue.
She said: ‘He used to call me at four, five, and six o’clock in the morning. I was the person that would take his calls when he wanted to rant.
‘I would listen to him. I would be like, “I love you, you’re the best, things will get better”. I was his go-to person to call when he wasn’t happy with X, Y, and Z. How that turned?’

She continued: ‘Maybe because I blocked him on my phone because I couldn’t bear taking his calls anymore. I can’t, I’m drained. So, I blocked him on my phone. Obviously, that really upset him.
‘So, he turned that into, “oh she’s this and she’s that”. They all started to ride his wave. If you’re that easily swayed, like the wind, then do I really give a f***? Should I give a f***? I don’t know.
‘Was I hurt by it? Yes. But at the same time, I’m like, I’ve done nothing. I’ve never done one thing. I’ve been the most honest and truthful best friend to all of them.’
Larsa said she understands why Kim might have needed to have done what was best for her family and believes Kim just wants to make things ‘better’ with her husband.

She said: ‘I love you, you and I are best friends, we’ve been through everything together. I would never do anything to jeopardise our relationship, we are like sisters, like family. But if you have to unfollow me to make your home a better place, then do it.
‘If Kanye feels he and Kim are better without me, then let them be without me. I’m OK with that. Do I look like I’m suffering?
‘Do I look like I’m in pain? I’m OK, I will survive. Was it hurtful? Yes. But do I have love from a lot of other places? Yes. This shall pass too.’
Speaking of her marriage to basketball legend Scottie Pippen, she went on: ‘I was in a situation when Scottie and I had our issues. He didn’t want me to hang out with them, Scottie was not happy about my relationship with them.

‘Scottie didn’t want me to take my kids over to their house. We had issues like that too. I was strong enough where I was not going to let him dictate what I do. I’m just not that person.’
In another twist, Larsa went on to claim that she dated Tristan Thompson, 29, before he embarked on romance with Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian, 36 – and even introduced him to the family.
She said: ‘I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloe. Before Khloe or any of them knew he existed. I was seeing him, I had him come to LA. I brought him to a party Kim had.
‘I introduced him to all of them. Then a week later, or 10 days later he started seeing Khloe. Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever. I’m the type of person that doesn’t chase what’s not for me.’
Khloe and Tristan, who rekindled their romance earlier this year, are raising their two-year-old daughter True together in Los Angeles.

Larsa also hit back at rumours that she tried to get romantically involved with Kim’s sister Kylie Jenner’s former partner Travis Scott.
She explained: ‘I feel like I ran into Travis Scott one night at a club and Travis called Kylie and said that I was hitting on him. That never happened.
‘So, then they were like, “Kanye says she’s this and then she was hitting on Travis.” By the way that never happened. I left with the same people I came with. That never freaking happened. Was he delusional?
‘I know he raps about being the highest in the f**king room. So clearly maybe he was the highest in the f**king room. He imagined all this s**t because it never happened. I would never do that, I would never in a billion years do that.’
Kylie, 23, and Travis, 29, co-parent their two-year-old daughter Stormi. While the couple split in 2019, there are been rumours of a reconciliation.
