As the dust settles on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce, speculation has started as to who the ultra-famous, ultra-powerful and ultra-wealthy singles will choose to date next.
Last week, it was reported that West wants his next relationship to be with an artist, who he hopes will be able to understand him better than his previous partners could. The rapper is looking for a “creative person,” so that “they can speak the same language to each other,” reported Page Six.
Though his ex-wife Kardashian is reportedly not looking for anything romantic with anyone at all yet, apparently the minute the world found out she was single, the SKIMS founder had a slew of high-profile suitors trying to get in touch with her, including “everyone from royal family members to A-list actors to athletes to billionaire CEOs.”
“People are reaching out through mutual friends and people that she’s worked with to set her up,” a source told Page Six, adding the lengthy list includes a lot of powerful and famous men.
The men are going to great lengths to get Kardashian’s attention, even using Lizzo’s tried and tested (and successful) technique of sliding into the Instagram DMs.
But though Kardashian is being inundated with people wanting to date her, the mother-of-four is “not looking for anyone right now.”
“She’s not looking to jump into anything but is keeping an open mind,” Page Six’s source confirmed, saying Kardashian wants her next relationship to happen “organically” and, unlike her ex-husband, she is “not on the hunt to date anyone in a specific field.”
“The qualities most important to her are someone who values family, is supportive, fun, romantic, enjoys the simple things and is also hardworking,” the source said. “Someone who values family first and foremost because she’s a mum of four kids.”
Back when Kardashian’s divorce was announced in February, the bookies started taking bets as to who her next partner would be. Along with a slew of rappers—Drake and Kendrick Lamar, both unlikely guesses—and athletes—the NBA’s James Harden and Paul George, also unlikely—was CNN’s 52-year-old commentator Van Jones, a lawyer who also shares Kardashian’s passions of law and prison reform.
An older man who’s smart and interested in law and human rights? Now we could be talking.
Place your (literal) bets, everyone, there’s a Kardashian on the loose.
