I think that is so cute of Kim that she was plotting and planning to have me hookup with someone here in Milan. I really do. Thank you,” the Good American cofounder, 38, stated in the upcoming Thursday, June 22, episode of The Kardashians.
Khloé recounted the first interaction with the 32-year-old actor in the episode.
“So we are sitting at the show and they sat me next to him. He was like, ‘Do you like Dolce & Gabbana?’ and I said, ‘I do.’ Then I said, ‘Do you like Dolce?’ and he is like, ‘Yeah, it has always been a dream of mine since I was a kid to model for them. And now I am the face of Dolce.’”
In addition, Kris Jenner pointed out that Michele was featured in large ad for the brand.
“He is the face of Dolce with the speedo on and no clothes coming out of a waterfall,” the momager, 67, told Khloé, who responded, “I don’t know who anyone is. It could be Tom Hanks and I’m like, ‘Hey, do you like movies?’ I don’t know anyone.”
The two sparked rumors of a potential fling back in September of 2022 when they were spotted in Milan. The two were seen backstage, and the 365 Days star was seen pulling the Kardashian in close while they were in deep conversation.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed at the time that the duo weren’t dating. “They were both at the Dolce & Gabbana show and the fashion brand asked them to take a photo together. He thought [Khloé] was very nice. That was the extent of their interaction,” a rep for Michele shared with Us days after photos of the twosome went viral.
The reality star remained quiet about her personal life lately after her split from Tristan Thompson. In one episode, Kardashian even recounts how pressured she feels to share more about her relationship with the NBA star.
Earlier in the season, Khloé explained how she and Tristan, 32, have remained focused on coparenting.
“Tristan and I, we always get along great. Him and I have a great friendship relationship. We get along fine, and for my kids, I will put anything to the side. What’s done is done, so why would I be still holding on to [past drama] for?” she said during a June 8 episode of The Kardashians. “I don’t need to punish him because I am not getting back together with him.”
The TV personality has also created boundaries with Tristan claiming, “If I am not here, he is here. I would rather him be here than a nanny. There are still boundaries. Like, I definitely put my foot down on a lot of things. No one is here chilling if there are no kids involved. It is always about the kids and that’s what it is. But we are not hanging out by ourselves.”
The star also went on to mention, “These boundaries are so important to put into place with Tristan because we have done this song and dance a handful of times already. I’ve gotten back with him after a cheating scandal, so I don’t know if Tristan is under the impression, ‘Oh wow, let’s ride this out and eventually she will get back with me.’ So I get why he may think that — so it is my job to set boundaries that my actions show otherwise.”
The Kardashians premieres every Thursday on Hulu.
