Kanye West likes ''curvy women'', according to former Miss USA Kenya Moore.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star claims the 'Power' rapper attempted to woo her several years ago, long before he got engaged to 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star Kim Kardashian, and believes he has a taste for fuller-figured women.

She said: ''Kanye likes beautiful women, curvy women.''

The 43-year-old reality TV star - who won the Miss USA pageant in 1993 - went on to reveal how Kanye, 36, put the moves on her, saying he was ''humble'' and ''nice''.

She told Access Hollywood: ''This was a long time ago ... He was really sweet when I met him. He seemed very humble. I thought he was a great guy. We met in Beverly Hills, he walked over ... he was very humble. He spoke to me. He was super nice. Of course, we didn't date, because I was with someone. He was a very charming guy, I can say that. I was very charmed.

''It was just friendly. [He said] 'Hey, I want you to hear some music.' It was all above board. I'm very happy that he's found love and that him and Kim are having a good relationship.''

Kanye welcomed his first child, daughter North, with Kim in June and proposed to his lady love earlier this month.
