Guess Khloe likes this one more than Kris Humphries!
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this Wednesday, Khloe Kardashian says that she approves of Kanye West -- but stopped short of elaborating on her 31-year-old sister's new romance with the rapper, 34.
"Honestly, we've known Kanye forever," Khloe, 27, explained to Ellen DeGeneres. "He's been a great family friend. I love Kanye."
Her older sister and West were introduced years ago, and stepped out together in NYC last week. "I don't know what happens with Kim," Khloe demurred of West, who is "genuinely head over heels" for Kim, according to one source.
"I think they're cute together," Khloe said simply.
As for Kim's soon-to-be ex-husband -- with whom Khloe famously sparred -- she explained, "I like Kris as a person. I just did not like them together." The outspoken sibling was "the only one to tell" Kim about her reservations about Humphries, 27, before the August 2011 wedding. "I don't know why no one else told her that. She got mad at me. I like being honest."
During her Ellen chat, she also opened up about husband Lamar Odom's sudden ouster from the Dallas Mavericks after just four months of playing for the team.
"We're sad," Kardashian admitted. "Especially [that] we're not able to finish the season with the Mavericks. But it's been such an amazing organization to be part of and to move to Dallas even though it was short --except for those tornados!"
