Kim Kardashian is planning to stay single.

The socialite - who split from NFL star Reggie Bush earlier this year - admits she has been in a relationship for most of her adult life but is now planning to have "fun" and focus on her career.

She said: "I'm a relationship girl. I've jumped from one to the next and they're always for years, never short. My family is hoping I stay single for at least a year and have some fun.

"And, yeah, I'm having a good time and focusing on work."

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star turns 30 in October and admits she is dreading reaching the milestone age, despite having achieved all she wanted to.

She explained in an interview with Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "As for turning 30, yuck, I don't want to talk about it. It's so old! I didn't expect to have the show and all this other stuff, so that's turned out to be amazing.

"I remember telling my sisters, 'When I'm 30, I want to have this and that, and be really successful and have a million dollars.' Well, when you achieve your goals, that's pretty amazing.

"But 30. I don't want to think about it."
