KRIS Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble went for dinner with Ellen DeGeneres after the momager helped the host during her workplace scandal.
The KUWTK star, 65, her partner, 40, and the comedian, 63, looked smart as they headed for a meal at Craig's in West Hollywood on Sunday.
Kris looked striking in a dark red velvet cape teamed with thigh-high boots and a velvet Chanel bag, while Corey – who has been dating Kris since 2014 – wore a mustard sweater and jeans.
Ellen, meanwhile, went for a glam look in a black turtleneck sweater and black blazer with gold detailing.
The trio seemed to be in high spirits as they headed to the LA hotspot for a catch-up.
While Ellen and Kris may seem like unlikely friends, The Sun exclusively revealed last year that the talk show host actually sought advice from the matriarch when her show was hit with the "toxic" workplace scandal.
An insider told The Sun Kris has been a "pillar of strength" in private, meeting with Ellen and her wife Portia.
They said: "If anybody knows scandal, it's Kris, and she's been a real pillar of strength for Ellen during this difficult time, she's found it very reassuring.
"Ellen has spent years being loved by viewers and this has understandably hit her hard, she wants to come back from it and prove to her audience that things are going to change.
"Kris has done it all with Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she knows how to weather a storm.
"She's been on the phone to Ellen and Portia a lot and they've met in person, they have a great bond."
The informant added: "Ellen is just thankful to have some of the stars she's classed as close friends over the years have her back both publicly and privately, Kris has been brilliant."
'TOXIC' WORKPLACE SCANDAL
Ellen – who reportedly made $85 million in 2020 – came under scrutiny after numerous former employees accused her show of tolerating everything from bullying to racism to sexual harassment.
One current and 10 former crew members from the hit daytime series spoke to BuzzFeed about the “toxic work environment” but remained anonymous due to fear of retribution.
It emerged that she reportedly once told a TV executive not to "look at her or speak to her".
Neil Breen claimed the show host had a series of "bizarre" demands when she appeared on his Australian program, the Today show, in 2013.
Neil, who now hosts his own show, claimed Ellen's staff were the only ones allowed to interact with her.
He alleged that they "walked on eggshells" around her and laughed so loudly at her jokes during the interview that he had to tell them to keep it down.
Ellen defended herself against allegations of "bullying" while speaking to Savannah Guthrie.
The comedian said she's a "people pleaser" and doesn't understand the "ridiculous claims" made against her.
She also claimed "all I've ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is".
After the controversy, Ellen revealed she was stepping down from her talk show.
Season 19 – which premiered last month – is be her last season and ends in 2022.
