To back up briefly, it was last Friday night when the rapper was spotted exposing a little bit of thigh as he and the E! reality star departed their vehicle in the Big Apple.
So what exactly happened?
"He was getting out of the car and his belt got pulled by this hook on the car door and he was trying to pull it up quick and his belt was really heavy," says Kim, Kanye's frequent companion as of late, in an exclusive interview with E! News at E!'s upfronts presentation.
"It's called a wardrobe malfunction," sister Kourtney explains to her sibling.
"It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional," Kim says. "It was not scandalous."
Naturally, we couldn't help but ask Kim if she wanted to tell us anything about Kanye given their rumored romance, to which she replies with a laugh: "No."
Oh well. We tried.
