“Everyone is asking me about the truth about Ariana and I, like, is our relationship fractured because she discussed a post that I made on Instagram?" Kim said. "Some people claimed I was implying Kroy died (which I already addressed was the FARTHEST thing from the truth last week)."

“Ariana and I are great. We have always had an extremely close mother/daughter relationship," she continued. "And always will.”
