If you claim you've had an affair with someone, that would imply that you've actually met them... right? Bret Lockett, the NFL player who claims that Kim Kardashian cheated on fiancé Kris Humphries with him, told CNN that he may have exaggerated their "physical relationship"... because he and Kim never actually met face-to-face. Watch the video below!
Apparently, when Lockett said that their relationship was physical, he just meant that they were having phone sex. At least, we think that's what he means. Lockett, 24, isn't making his story any more believable with his insistence that the details are private -- because, let's face it, the moment you sell the story of your affair to In Touch is the moment it stops being private. (And that's what started this whole thing in the first place.)
Amazingly, Lockett is sticking to his story of their "five month affair," claiming that he and Kardashian, 30, would have met except that "she was very busy." (Well, yeah. When is she not?) He claims that Kim requested his number through her close friend Lauren London -- but London denies the story and, in an interesting twist, her attorney has written a letter to In Touch stating that "someone has been impersonating Ms. London for some time now."
Is it possible that Lockett was duped by Lauren London's impersonator? Was he communicating by phone with someone he only thinks is Kim Kardashian? Maybe it's all a big, embarrassing misunderstanding. Or maybe someone is just flat-out lying.
As for Kardashian, she's had her lawyer send Lockett a cease-and-desist letter demanding that he retract and apologize for his story. But she has other things to focus on -- like welcoming her new fiancé into the world of reality TV stardom.
"I don't think he would have planned to be in a relationship that has cameras around and stuff like that, but he's done such a good job," Kardashian told People of Humphries, who made his reality TV debut on Sunday night's season premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
"We definitely wanted to make sure that we really got to know each other first before we even had him on camera," she adds. "We took a few good months just to ourselves to make sure that everything was really just strong between us."
Guess that worked out, huh?
