Kanye West thought of becoming sports star for Kim

Los Angeles, Aug 20 (IANS) Rapper Kanye West says he is so much in love with socialite-partner Kim Kardashian that he once considered becoming a sports star like Kardashian's former boyfriends.

The 36-year-old joked about Kardashian's previous romances, including a long-term relationship with football player Reggie Bush and a marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries, and said that he had also thought about taking up a sport, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

In an interview with Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner on her daytime talk show "Kris", which will air later this week, West told her that he's "so in love with "Kim that I thought about) playing sports."

West also talked about the couple's over two-month-old daughter North West.
