Khloé Kardashian likes to date athletes

Khloé Kardashian prefers to date athletes.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star may have been left heartbroken when she split from her husband Lamar Odom in 2013 following four years of marriage, but she has admitted she's still attracted to sportsmen - particularly basketball players - because she's so obsessed with fitness.

Asked what her type is, the blonde beauty said while appearing on 'The Howard Stern Show': "I mean, especially now that I'm athletic, I like athletes. I like to be active."

But Khloé insists she doesn't go hunting for love at basketball games, as she met her current sportsman boyfriend James Harden at a birthday party thrown by her sister Kim Kardashian West.

She explained: "I don't actually [go to the games]. Kimberly threw Kanye a birthday party at the Staples Center, we rented it out, and she had all of his friends there and some athletes were playing basketball and so I met him there."

The 31-year-old reality TV star has been dating the Houston Rockets player for seven months and is determined to make their relationship her "priority" in life.

But she recently admitted her estranged husband, who is currently recuperating in hospital following a drugs and alcohol binge in October, will always be her "soul mate."

She said: "I do believe that we're soulmates, but right now, that's not even where my head is at. I'm more of a from a friend standpoint. I genuinely love him and I genuinely want him to be healthy and happy and all of that, like I would any of my family members or loved ones, so that's at a place where I'm coming from."
