Brandy denies she's upset with Kim Kardashian

1retweetBrandy has denied claims that she and Kim Kardashian clashed during filming of Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor.
While reports surfaced that the two—connected by their relationships with Brandy’s brother, Ray J—were creating tension on the set, Brandy tweeted that things were all good.
"There is nothing going on between me and @KimKardashian! Nothing but LOVE for her!" Brandy tweeted.
However, it is also reported that Brandy wasn’t pleased with Kim’s casting because of Tyler’s motives.
The filmmaker recently released a statement admitting that Kim’s popularity was one reason he decided to cast her in the movie.
"One of my producers showed me pictures that his daughter had taken of several hundred kids lined up around the corner to get into a Kardashian store. They wanted to meet Kim," Tyler explained.
“She literally has millions of young people following her," he added, failing to mention her acting talent as a reason to hire her for the supporting role.
Some suggest Brandy is still holding a grudge against Kim, who co-starred with Ray J in the sex tape that first introduced the young socialite to the masses.
According to the National Enquirer, Brandy wondered if Tyler is using their strained relationship to bring more attention to his film.
"She feels that Tyler purposely cast both her and Kim in the film because it would generate a lot of buzz. She's told anyone who'll listen that she hates working with Kim and she doesn't want to be anywhere near her,” a source told the Enquirer. "Brandy has even asked the production people to give her a heads-up if Kim is on the set because she doesn't want to run into the wannabe movie star!"
Luckily for both women, they are done filming their parts in the movie. It remains to be seen whether Kim and Brandy will tour together when promotion begins.
