The baseball star said in a Sports Illustrated interview published Tuesday that Kylie Jenner discussed her wealth with him at the Met Gala
Alex Rodriguez is walking back remarks he made in a Sports Illustrated interview about his conversation with Kylie Jenner at the Met Gala last month.
The baseball star, 43, originally told the outlet that he and Jenner discussed her new billionaire status, saying, “Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.”
But the 21-year-old beauty mogul fired back on Twitter, quoting a PEOPLE article about his remarks in Sports Illustrated and saying that they did not discuss her wealth.
“Umm no i didn’t. We only spoke about Game of Thrones,” she said in her tweet, adding a shrug and a face-palm emoji.
A few hours later, Rodriguez responded to Jenner on Twitter, seeming to temper his original comments.
“OMG that’s right @KylieJenner!! It was me talking about you and your makeup line and how much my girls love you. #GOT #respect #alllove,” he wrote alongside a quote of her tweet.

Some fans were left a bit confused by Rodriguez’s tweet.
“Awkward,” one Twitter user said, while another added, “@KylieJenner im confused is he being sarcastic? you need to come at him directly haha:)”
“I think he’s being sarcastic. But I’m just here for the meme gif of the surprised dog,” said another user.
