Who is Malika Haqq? Celebrity Big Brother 2018 star and Khloe Kardashian’s friend

MALIKA Haqq often appears in hit show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and has appeared on other TV shows as well.

But just who is Khloe Kardashian's best friend and where else have we seen her?

Malika is model, actress and "professional best friend" to Khloe Kardashian.

She played a lead role in friend Omarion’s video “Speedin’in addition to several films including School For Scoundrels, ATL and Somebody Help Me 2.

She’s also guest-starred on TV shows such as Strong Medicine in 2004, The Bernie Mac Show in 2005, and Las Vegas in 2007.

Before she found her own feet, she worked for Khloe as her Personal Assistant, but quit to pursue her own career.

However, Malika hasn't starred in any more films since quitting as Khloe's PA.

She has, however, starred in other reality shows such as Hollywood Divas and Dash Dolls – a KUWTK spin-off.

She is also a brand ambassador for Pretty Little Thing.

Before Malika entered the CBB house, it was claimed she dumped her boyfriend after he gave her a £750,000 watch for Christmas.
She is said to have ditched rapper O.T. Genasis after he bought her the diamond timepiece as a gift.

Unconfirmed reports from the US claim Malika decided to show O.T. the door after she "caught him cheating".

The couple were first romantically linked in November.

She has since deleted all pictures of O.T. from her social media accounts.

 

The girls have known each other since they were 15.

In fact, Khloe is really good friends with Malika's twin sister Khadijah too.

They met when Malika was dating one of Khloe's male friends… and the rest is history.

She explained on her blog: "Malika was dating one of my male best friends. He would always keep us apart because I am sure he knew we would just hit it off. One day we met and we did. Malika and Khadijah have been my best friends ever since."

Awkwardly, Malika had a crush on Khloe's brother Rob and were often seen flirting on camera during the reality show- she even modelled for his sock line Arthur George.

They never got together and Malika has since said Rob's "friendship is special."

Khloe’s pregnancy was confirmed by the executive producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The star is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson and show boss Jeffrey Jenkins confirmed the news and congratulated the happy couple publicly.

Malika said: “She’ll make an incredible mother, I promise you that.

“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 is appearing on Channel 5's hit reality show Celebrity Big Brother.

The model and actress is the second Kardashian friend to make it on to the show, following Kim's close pal Jonathan Cheban, who entered the house in 2016.

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.”

Celebrity Big Brother is on twice a year, and returned to our screens on January 2 on Channel 5 hosted by Emma Willis.

Spin-off Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On The Side hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal has also returned.

The show marks 100 years since women won the right to vote in Britain, and launched with an ALL-FEMALE cast of celebrities to begin with.

CBB is on every night on Channel 5 and usually begins at 9pm. Celebrity Big Brother's Bit On the Side is on the same channel on weekdays, later the same night.
