The baseball star, 43, originally told the outlet that he and Jenner discussed her new billionaire status, saying, “Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.”
But the 21-year-old beauty mogul fired back on Twitter, quoting a PEOPLE article about his remarks in Sports Illustrated and saying that they did not discuss her wealth.
“Umm no i didn’t. We only spoke about Game of Thrones,” she said in her tweet, adding a shrug and a face-palm emoji.
A few hours later, Rodriguez responded to Jenner on Twitter, seeming to temper his original comments.

Some fans were left a bit confused by Rodriguez’s tweet.
“I think he’s being sarcastic. But I’m just here for the meme gif of the surprised dog,” said another user.
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told the magazine at the time. “But feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
The mother of one told PAPER earlier this year that she doesn’t think much about her billionaire status.
“I don’t define myself by how much I have,” she said in February. “I honestly don’t wake up even thinking about it.”
