Khloe Kardashian – Kim’s 26-year-old sister – has met the basketball player before and likes him but says he now has to impress the rest of the family, including their mother Kris Jenner, when he meets them.
She said: “I don’t think Kris knows what he’s getting into.
“He hasn’t been around all of us yet. He hasn’t been to my mom’s house with the chaos, so the initiation process will happen this summer – if he lasts.
“If he can get out of that alive then he’s good to stay.”
Khloe also hopes Kris will “hang out” with the clan, including her partner Lamar Odom, a fellow NBA star who plays for the Los Angeles Lakers.
She added to People: “Hopefully we’ll all get to go on fun trips and hang out. That’s something that we all look forward to. Kris was out with her for the NBA All-Star weekend and we hung out. Lamar got to know him and we had fun.”
However, there will be some teasing as Kris plays for rival team the New Jersey Nets.
She added: “Lamar always teases Kim. Kim will be like, ‘Oh my god, The Nets won their game.’ And Lamar will go. ‘Kim, remember this day. They’re not going to win the NBA Championship.’ She thinks it’s funny.”
Kim – who was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas and has dated NFL star Reggie Bush and Gabriel Aubry – recently revealed Kris was the perfect boyfriend.
She said: “I think I haven't found one thing wrong with him, let's just put it like that."
