Mehgan James Denies Rob Kardashian Romance: 'I'm Just as Confused as Everyone Else'
Multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that Kardashian is seeing reality star Mehgan James
Though multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that Kardashian, 30, is seeing the 26-year-old reality star, both parties are denying the romance. A rep for James also confirmed to PEOPLE on Friday that the reality star is not dating Kardashian.
On Thursday, Kardashian tweeted that he isn’t dating James and doesn’t even know her, which she later retweeted. On Friday, she took to Twitter to address the speculation herself.
“Although I’ve been advised not to say anything, I will say, I’m only ‘Megan something,’ ” she wrote. “I don’t control the media but we all know who does.”
“I’m just as confused as everyone else,” she added.
James, who has appeared on Oxygen’s Bad Girl’s Club and VH1’s Basketball Wives LA, also took to Instagram to share a lengthier message.
“I’m CLEARLY not dating Rob, nor have I ever confirmed that I was,” she wrote. “You all just so happen to believe everything you read. I posted one pair of Arthur George socks 2/3 weeks ago & now all of a sudden I’m a home wrecker, a fraud, a hoe … etc.”
“I do not control the media, BUT we all know who has the media on their payroll,” she continued. “Sooo … don’t point any fingers this way! I’m just ‘Megan something’ that most of you ‘never heard of.’ I don’t have that type of power. I was just as confused as anyone else and was told not to even entertain it.”

Despite their tweets, an insider close to James told PEOPLE on Wednesday that “Mehgan has been supporting Rob and his business for some time now,” adding that the two have “been really close friends for about three months.”
A separate source also told PEOPLE that Kardashian’s family members are aware of the new romance and aren’t thrilled about it.
“They hope it’s short-lived, because she seems like drama as well,” said the source. “Now that Rob finally got away from the [Blac] Chyna drama, they don’t want him to to start another destructive relationship.”
