Kim Kardashain momager Kris Jenner just thew cold water on her daughter’s supposedly hot romance with rapper Kanye West. She said they were just “friends.”

Kris appeared on the Today Show with Matt Lauer to promote the upcoming season of reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

“You know what, I think that Kim is just hanging out with friends and nothing crazy is going on,” she said. “They’re [Kim and Kanye] just having a good time.”

Why Jenner is suddenly soft-peddling the relationship, after Kim and Kayne have done everything in public to suggest they are a couple may have its roots in the upcoming legal showdown with estranged husband Kris Humphries.

Humphries will reportedly cite the relationship as evidence that his marriage to the reality show star was a sham cooked up some Kim and her family could cash in on a wedding extravaganza, according to several reports.

Kim and Kayne’s behavior since Kim ended her marriage to the basketball player after 72 days of marriage has done nothing but play into Humphries’ legal argument. The two are set to give depositions in the case next month.

Momager Kris also dispelled rumors she was on the outs with her daughters and also called “ridiculous” reports that Khloe Kardashian may have a different father. The late Robert Kardashian is the undisputed father of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian.

Khloe’s physically difference from her sisters is pronounced and two of Robert Kardashian’s ex-wives have come forward to say he told them he suspected he was not the father.

The Kardashian family recently signed on for three more years of shows on the E! Network for a reported $40 million.

“It’s almost unusual not to have all the cameras in our lives,” Krish said. “It’s an opportunity for me as a mom — I get to wake up every single day and work with my kids…. It’s somewhat addictive in that … we can’t wait to do it.”

“Keeping Up with the Kardashians” returns May 20.
