Khloé Kardashian Says 'I Like What I Like' After It's Suggested She Stop Dating Basketball Players
"I like what I like," Khloé Kardashian said on Jimmy Kimmel Live, referring to her history of dating NBA players
Khloé Kardashian has a type — and she’s not afraid to admit it.
During the interview, host Jimmy Kimmel grilled Kardashian on her taste in men, weeks after the recent cheating scandal involving Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson, with whom she shares 11-month-old daughter True Thompson.
“I do want to ask about this character that you had a baby with. Is it time to stop dating basketball players?” Kimmel asked Kardashian, as the crowd cheered.
“I don’t know,” Kardashian replied. “I like what I like. What can I say?”
In April 2018, photos and videos surfaced of the 28-year-old NBA player getting close to other women. Though Kardashian initially forgave Thompson, news broke in February that the athlete allegedly cheated on her with family friend Jordyn Woods, 21.
Previously, Kardashian was married to NBA player Lamar Odom. After a rollercoaster of a relationship, including multiple rumors of infidelity and two divorce filings, Kardashian and Odom, 39, officially divorced in 2016.
Kimmel then asked the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star if she liked basketball.
“I actually do,” she said. “I don’t play basketball. I just like to observe basketball. It’s the whole thing of it all.”
“But I do agree,” she then admitted. “I should have listened to my MJ, my grandmother, and I should probably start to date like accountants or something like that.”

On Saturday night, Thompson was booed during a basketball game that saw his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, facing the Los Angeles Clippers on their home turf in L.A.
When Thompson went to the free throw line during the Cavaliers blow-out loss to the Clippers, he was viciously booed by those in attendance, and some began chanting “Khloé! Khloé!” as he attempted his two shots.
Thompson — who has made 61 percent of his free throws in his career — missed both shots to the delight of Clippers fans. Los Angeles went on to win the game 132-108.
After news broke that Thompson cheated with Woods, she appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, to share her side of the scandal. She claimed that Thompson kissed her while she was on her way out of an afterparty at the NBA player’s house in February.
Although Woods has admitted she made a mistake, she’s denied being the reason why Thompson and Kardashian are no longer together.
“I’m no home wrecker,” Woods said. “I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love. And someone that I’ve seen — has a beautiful daughter. I never was trying to steal someone’s man.”
Shortly after Woods’ interview was posted online, Kardashian slammed the model, tweeting, “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”
However, in a series of emotional tweets the next day, Kardashian softened her tone, placing the blame fully on Thompson.
“This has been an awful week & I know everyone is sick of hearing about it all (as am I). I’m a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn’t have,” she wrote. “Honestly, Tristan cheating on me & humiliating me, wasn’t such a shock as the first time.”
