Kristin Cavallari is fighting back, shooting down a new cover story from Life & Style, which claims she had a fling with Kourtney Kardashian's baby daddy, Scott Disick, several years ago.
"First of all, it's 100 percent not true," Kristin told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush in an interview for Access and Wednesday's "The Billy Bush Show." "I just think, what convenient timing for them with their show premiering next week and with everything that's going on for Kim [Kardashian], I feel like they're trying to take the heat off her."
In Life & Style's new issue, the mag claims Kristin and Scott hooked up several years ago, before Kourtney Kardashian became pregnant with Mason, her son with Scott.
Kristin suggested to Billy that the timing of the story was too close for comfort, seemingly putting the blame for the story on the Kardshian clan.
"When there's a big story like that, they always call you and ask if you want to comment and clearly none of them denied it, so it's very... it's really disrespectful to me and I'm in a committed relationship. It's disrespectful to me and Jay [Cutler] and I think it just says a lot about their character," Kristin told Billy.
While there was no reference of a comment in Life & Style's cover story from either Kristin or the Kardashians, a rep for Life & Style told Access Hollywood all parties in the story were contacted for the report. The rep added that the mag stands 100 percent behind the reporting on its story.
A source close to the Kardashians called Kristin's suggestions "absurd."
"Like they need publicity?" the source added.
As for Jay, Kristin said her on-again beau, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay, "didn't believe [the report] for one second."
"People can say whatever they want, it's crazy, it blows my mind," Kristin added. "Everyone says don't worry about it, something like this, it really makes me mad."
