Khloe Kardashian says Kanye has always loved Kim

Khloé Kardashian thinks Kanye West was “obsessed” with her sister Kim before they began dating.

Kanye and Kim started seeing each other last year after her split from ex-husband Kris Humphries and the couple are now expecting their first child.

Khloe is a big fan of the rapper.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star opened up about the pair’s relationship on US chat show The Talk on Friday.

She explained Kanye had long been a friend of the family. She’s not surprised his relationship with Kim became romantic.

"We’ve known Kanye since 2006 or 2007," Khloé said. "And he’s always been into [Kim] and loved her. He just always was so obsessed with her - in a good way.”

Khloé said Kim initially brushed off any ideas of romance with Kanye. Of course she eventually came around to the idea.

“I just thought that was so cute,” Khloé said. “And she was like, 'No we’re just friends or whatever...'

Khloé isn't taking credit for Kim and Kanye becoming a couple. She's just surprised Kim didn't see the spark sooner.

"One day - I don’t know what happened, she acts like it was her idea, like I never said it, 'Wait, I think I really like Kanye.' And I was like 'Hello! I’ve been telling you for years!" Khloé laughed.

Kim is expecting her first child with Kanye this summer.
