Rick Fox is showering Khloé Kardashian with attention.

The 45-year-old retired basketball player is reportedly smitten with the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star after convincing her to have dinner with him last month.

A source said: ''Rick always said he thinks Khloé's gorgeous. Rick's been showering Khloé with attention. Her family absolutely approves.''

The 30-year-old reality TV star is also smitten with the actor.

The insider told US Star magazine: ''She's fallen for him big-time. To say it's love wouldn't be a stretch. He knows Khloé, and he knows how to make her feel good about herself.''

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star recently reached out to her estranged husband Lamar Odom after his best friend Jamie Sangouthai died from a drugs-related incident, but has no desire to rekindle their relationship.

The insider added: ''Khloé may be finally realizing that a bad body isn't what she needs.''

The couple decided to go to dinner after ''talking on the phone and texting a lot''.

Khloé also previously had an on-again, off-again relationship with rapper French Montana until earlier this year.
