Myla tweeted to Kim earlier this week, “Why don’t u enjoy ur Miami trip and stop sending private investigators to my house-Stop dragging me into ur drama.”
She added, “I don’t have to explain Or apologize for who I chose to be friends with. Subpoena or not!”
- When the status of Kris and Myla’s relationship was still in question, Kim’s lawyers subpoenaed her to be deposed in the ex-couple’s ongoing divorce case.
Meanwhile, Kris has signed a new, two-year, $24 million deal with the Nets, meaning he’ll be moving with the team from New Jersey to Brooklyn.
- Ironically, the Nets are partly owned by Jay-Z — who is close friends with Kim’s new beau, Kanye West.
