KIM Kardashian’s potential suitors are reportedly being vetted with a series of “background checks”.
The 40-year-old is scouring dating apps with her sisters and is getting a lot of messages from athletes, sources claimed.
“Guys, athletes mostly, have reached out and Kim’s team is definitely doing their research.”
“It’s a process and there’s a lot of shady guys out there who need to be checked out.”
The source added: “But Kim says that if she finds someone she genuinely feels a connection for, she’ll go for it. That’s what she says anyway.”
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye West in February after seven years of marriage.
The rapper, 44, has since moved on with 35-year-old Russian model Irina Shayk.
They have been linked since April, with sources claiming they were secretly hanging out in New York for weeks.
Meanwhile, Kim recently insisted she is not dating her longtime friend, CNN reporter Van Jones, 52.
The KUWTK star had been linked to her legal mentor, 52, since April.
The TV personality said there was nothing going on between the two and that, if anything, the speculation has helped Van‘s love life.
Kim admitted: “Van texted me and was like, ‘This rumor has gotten me so many dates and I’m so grateful, so I owe you.'”
Earlier this month, The Sun exclusively revealed that Kim wants to date a “powerful man”.
A source told us: “She is very aware that whoever she is with next needs to be the right person.”

“She’s embarrassed over Kanye – and she knows how that reflects on her. This time she wants a powerful man.”
The reality star is reportedly being courted by a slew of eligible bachelors, including royals, A-list actors and billionaires.
“People are reaching out through mutual friends and people that she’s worked with to set her up with everyone from royal family members to A-list actors to athletes to billionaire CEOs,” an insider told Page Six in April.
