After his surprising Twitter tirade against Rita Ora, who he accused of cheating on him with 20 dudes, Rob Kardashian is claiming he didn't trash his ex ... by name at least.
"Rita Whora" was trending on Twitter this week after Rita Ora and Rob Kardashian broke up and Kim's little bro fired off a series of very descriptive tweets.
Given the timing and detail, it seemed like a safe bet that Rob was talking about Rita, his girlfriend since the spring, but he's now saying that's not true. Sort of.
"Just so we clear I never once mentioned 'Rita Ora' in any of my tweets or even used the word "whore" and I never would. I Respect Women," Rob wrote.
Collectively, he probably does. Just not this one in particular.
"Sad that the media created negativity for a young artist new to the game that is working so hard to make it," he added, in apparent defense of Rita Ora.
Media created negativity? Is he for real?
If Rob expects us to believe he was musing about a random ex the day after he and Rita split - to the point where Khloe told him to chill out - he's kidding himself.
He did not mention her by name, it's true, nor did he start the infamous hashtag. He may even feel bad about it. But that doesn't mean they weren't about her.
During his now-deleted rant, he also said his cheating ex was "busy trying to start her own career," which reads similarly to his "new to the game" comment.
Rita has yet to respond on Twitter, though she has confirmed the breakup, telling Glamour that the long distance factor was the main reason for the split.
