Told you so! During an appearance on The Talk on Friday, June 7, Khloe Kardashian opened up about her long-time support for sister Kim Kardashian's current love -- and father to her daughter-to-be -- Kanye West.
"We’ve known Kanye since 2006 or 2007," Khloe explained. "And he’s always been into [Kim] and loved her. He just always was so obsessed with her -- in a good way. And I just thought that was so cute, and she was like, 'No we’re just friends or whatever.' And I just was like, 'I think that you two are so similar with fashion or whatever you guys are both into.' And so I said 'Just give him a shot.'
She continued, "And then 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!"
Referring to Kim's lavish nuptials to NBA basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 (Kim infamously filed divorce papers 72 days later in Oct. 2011), Khloe laughed, "We could have saved a whole wedding!'"
The pair finally settled their divorce on June 3, 2013.
As for West, Khloe isn't the only Kardashian family member to express her loyalty to the rapper. Despite Kim's stepdad, Bruce Jenner, recently revealing that he's only met West "once," he referred to West, 35, as "my good friend" and "family" during a June 4 appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
