Overheard: Kim K. on Kanye's 'wardrobe malfunction'

You might've seen a curious photograph floating around on the Web earlier this week that depicted Kanye West's pants falling down a bit as he exited a car with Kim Kardashian.

There've been a number of theories as to how Kanye got caught showing off some thigh (as well as a peek at his underwear) while on a supposed "date night" last Friday, but now Kim is explaining what really happened. As she told E! at the network's upfront presentations, it's not nearly as salacious as one might think:

"He was getting out of the car and the buckle... 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. It was a wardrobe malfunction, but it wasn't anything intentional. It was not scandalous."

But as far as the rest of the rumors swirling about her relationship with her friend Kanye, the reality star still wasn't commenting.

      Her ethnicity is Armenian (half each Russian/Turkish Armenian) on her father's side, and Dutch/Scottish on her mother's side. The dark looks you may be wondering about would have come from the Armenian side.

      Kim is Supposedly Armenian. She is not a black woman in any since of the word or race. Matter of fact she is more white. I have also yet to see where the Kartrashian family does anything "Armenian" in culture.

      Umm, 99%?!? Really?!? I know there are a lot of women out there who like to date, whatever floats their boats, with black men but day-um, I don't think it's even near the 99th percentile ratio as you have given.. I don't hold it against anyone whether they date blacks or another race, I feel like it's their choice. I just choose not to do that for myself because that's just not my thang and not my tastes in men.. *shrug*

      Are u a woman or female impersonator if not how in the hell do u know how attractive this man is inside & outside. evidently, u don't know what the hell you're talking about because he has no trouble finding & getting with the ladies both Black and White ones. I know your real problem (u & most white males) are offended because Kanye has a white girl under his arm and u hate that so u talk this nonsense about his looks & personality. Racism is so deep that Hollywood does not want to offend white males so they make all so called interracial affairs a White Male and Black Woman pair. This does not represent real life because it is quite the opposite meaning more black men screw white women than white males screw black women. THAT'S A FACT AND IF U DON'T LIKE IT GO TO HELL WHERE U CAME FROM
