The evidence? Fans discovered that while the 54-year-old reality star stopped posting about her real estate agent hubby, she was sharing more and more pictures of herself and the country music star. They even attend red carpet-events together. And there’s more! The two also had matching heart Tattoos and matching rings. Even Morgan’s ex-girlfriend, Kady Cannon, was suspicious about the close bond between the musician and Kyle!
Given these details, many were convinced infidelity was the cause of Kyle and Mauricio’s marriage troubles! Now, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is setting the record straight.
While Kyle was attempting to take off in her black Range Rover on Friday night, she was approached by paparazzi, who asked her a bunch of questions about her current situation. Per a video obtained by Page Six, a videographer asked about the nature of her relationship with Morgan, to which she responded:
“We are very good friends.”
But that person wasn’t satisfied with her answer! When someone asked if the affair with the 28-year-old singer was “just a rumor,” she bluntly said, “Yes.” However, the paps weren’t backing down, questioning her about their matching tattoos. Pointing to her best friend and former co-star Teddi Mellencamp in the passenger seat, she replied:
“We have matching tattoos, too. [Wade’s] not the only one I have a matching Tattoo with.”
So there you have it. They are just very close friends, at least so says Kyle! Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments below!
