Kylie Jenner has clapped back at claims by former professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez that she bragged about her wealth at the Met Gala.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Rodriguez, who is engaged to Jennifer Lopez, reminisced about attending the star-studded Met Gala in New York and recalled a private conversation he and Jenner shared.

He said: "We had a great table. We had Kylie and Kendall. Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is."

However, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has denied the claim.

She retweeted a link to US publication People's coverage of the story and wrote: "Umm no i didn't. We only spoke about Game of Thrones."

According to Forbes magazine, Jenner is the world's youngest "self-made" billionaire thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics business.
