Kardashians star Malika Haqq signs for Celebrity Big Brother after jetting into the UK

KEEPING Up With The Kardashians star Malika Haqq has jetted into the UK to sign a big money deal to enter the Celebrity Big Brother House.
Khloe Kardashian’s “professional best friend” was spotted at Heathrow airport this afternoon and will be unveiled on the show’s big launch night on Tuesday.

Model and actress Malika is the second Kardashian companion to make it on to the Channel 5 show, following Kim’s close pal Jonathan Cheban, who entered the house in 2016.

She’s been friends with expectant mum Khloe since they were 15, growing close with Kourtney and Kim too – and in 2011 she was romantically linked to their brother Rob, though they deny getting together.

A source told The Sun Online: “Not only is Malika friends with the most famous family in the planet, she has become a massive name in her own right.

“Show bosses have paid a huge amount of money to get her and they hope she will be able to to give an amazing insight into life with the Kardashians.

“On top of that she’s a really interesting person  and she is going to make great TV.

“She’s got a real chance of winning the show.”

Malika, whose twin sister Khadijah is also close to Khloe, has previously appeared in the movies Somebody Help Me 2, ATL and School For Scoundrel as well as numerous TV shows.

She used to work as Khloe’s PA, and is now a brand ambassador for Pretty Little Things, as well as showing up on reality series Hollywood Divas, Real Husbands of Hollywood and Dash Dolls, the latter being a KUWTK spin-off.

No doubt Kardashian fans will be hopeful that the 34-year-old will have the goss on the drama surrounding the sisters’ various pregnancies – seeing as Kylie is yet to confirm hers.

“She’s the certified aunt. She and I are neck and neck for the role, we’re like super aunties, trust me.

“It’s like they had kids for us, we’re like fun aunts, we buy nerf guns and wrestle and things like that.”

Malika had a crush on Rob Kardashian and they became close in 2011

She also said of the Kardashians in October: “They’re friends, but they are literally family to me. I am nothing but happy for their success, they’ve earned it.

“There’s not a lot people that can say they’ve done it… it’s an accolade they really deserve.”

Malika may have also been instrumental in introducing Khloe to her basketball-playing baby daddy Tristan Thompson.

Khloe revealed in October that Malika and her on/off boyfriend Brandon Jennings – also a basketball player – invited them on a blind date and “they just connected”.

Celebrity Big Brother kicks off on January 2 at 9pm on Channel 5.
