Khloe – who with husband Lamar Odom
enjoyed a double-date with the fledgling couple in New York last weekend
– revealed things between her older sibling and the Gold Digger rapper
are only just getting off the ground.
on US show Watch What Happens Live, she said: 'I don't think it's
serious. I think it's too soon. But because they've been friends for so
long, it's just so easy and that's something I love seeing for Kim – the
easiness and how happy she is. And it's just more of a great friendship
and friendships make the best relationships.

She previously explained: 'When I met Kris the very first time, I had just landed in New York and it was late at night.
'One of the first things that came out of his mouth – like within the first five minutes – was, “So, how much you getting paid to fake your marriage Like how long are you gonna keep this up for” And I was like, “Okay, dude, I don't know if you're trying to make me laugh …” But he just rubbed me the wrong way.
Beaming: The continued success of the family and Kim's budding new romance certainly seems to be making matriarch Kris smile
Excited: The clan looked excited as they headed out of the super chic Gansvoort hotel earlier in the evening
'So ever since then I had a very defensive wall brought up. I'm a very good judge of character, if I do say so myself.'
Earlier today Kim jetted back into New York after attending an event in Los Angeles last night.
She had flew into California for a few hours to attend the Jeep brand and USA Basketball announced partnership, which named the Jeep Wrangler the official vehicle of USA Basketball.
