"How could you not stare at Kim?" the Meet The Barkers alum previously told Us Weekly. "Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls. Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!"

Although he "had a crush on her" and they "were flirtatious," Barker and Kim remained pals. The musician even appeared on KUWTK and spin-offs, such as Kocktails With Khloé, over the years.
