KIM Kardashian's former best friend, Larsa Pippen, has claimed Kanye West "brainwashed" the star and her sisters against her.
Kim and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner all unfollowed Larsa, 46, in July after Kanye mentioned her in a social media rant.
The Kardashians snubbed Larsa – the ex-wife of NBA legend Scottie Pippen – on Instagram after Kanye tweeted, "Larsa" followed by a suspicious face emoji.
The famous family never explained their reasoning behind the move, although Larsa hinted at the snub by writing soon after that she's focusing on her "relationships in real life".
The mom-of-four has now claimed Kanye turned all of the Kardashians against her because he was hurt that she "blocked" his number after getting "drained" by his phone calls.
She said on the Hollywood Raw podcast with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn: "[Kanye] has literally brainwashed the whole family into thinking… I don’t even know what."
Larsa went on: "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."
When asked if she was affected by the Kardashians snubbing her, she added: "I didn’t feel any type of way. I just felt like, do what’s best for your family."
She claimed Kim cut her off because she wanted to make things "better" with Kanye.
"I love you, you and I are best friends, we’ve been through everything together. I would never do anything to jeopardize 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," she said.
"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?" Larsa added.
"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.
She continued: "I was in a situation when Scottie [her ex-husband] 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."
The reality star then claimed she previously had a "great relationship" with Kanye, and that the Yeezy mogul would call her to "rant" to her – adding that he got "upset" when she eventually blocked him.
"[Kanye] 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," the jewelry designer claimed.
She went on: "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?
"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'. [The Kardashians] all started to ride his wave. If you’re that easily swayed, like the wind, then do I really give a f**k? Should I give a f**k? 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 added that it's "hurtful" people think she "hooked up" with Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson.
The Real Housewives Of Miami star claimed she dated Tristan, 29, before Khloe and actually introduced him to the Good American founder.
"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," she said.
"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, 36, and Tristan reunited earlier this year and have been co-parenting their two-year-old daughter, Dream.
Larsa then claimed Kylie Jenner's baby daddy Travis Scott, 29, accused her of "hitting" on him at a club and branded the rapper "delusional".
"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," she said.
"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?" Larsa said.
"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 split from Travis last year but the pair have continued to co-parent their two-year-old daughter, Stormi, in lockdown.
She recently sparked reconciliation rumors by posing with the shirtless rapper in a steamy shoot.
