While talking to Sports Illustrated recently, Alex Rodriguez dished about his A-list Met Gala table, which included Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Idris Elba and Henry Golding were also seated at the table, but that’s not how Rodriguez referred to the famous actors.
“We had a great table,” he told the magazine. “The black guy from ‘The Wire’ — Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife [Sabrina Dhowre]. Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is. Versace — Donatella. We had Kylie and Kendall. And we had an Asian gentleman from ‘Rich Asians,’ the lead.”
The movie is “Crazy Rich Asians” and the “lead” is Golding.
Perhaps Rodriguez was too star-struck to properly identify his dining partners, as he also may have misconstrued a conversation he had with Kylie.
“Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is,” he recalled to the magazine.
Rodriguez’s comment caused a huge stir, prompting the 21-year-old makeup mogul to call him out on Twitter.
“Umm no i didn’t,” Kylie tweeted in response to one headline about A-Rod’s quip. “We only spoke about Game of Thrones.”
“OMG that’s right @KylieJenner!!” Rodrigeuz replied. “It was me talking about you and your makeup line and how much my girls love you #GOT #respect #alllove.”
