Kim Kardashian has started having vivid dreams about her late father - which she believes are a sign he is ''watching over'' her from beyond the grave.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star lost her dad Robert Kardashian - who was famous for being O. J. Simpson's defense attorney during his 1995 murder trial - to cancer in 2003 when she was 22.

In recent weeks, Kim has started seeing her dad in her sleep regularly and she is the only member of her family - which includes her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kourtney and Khloe - to have the visions.

In an interview with more! magazine, she revealed: ''I've been dreaming about my dad lately. I've had two dreams that were, like, so real. I started researching them and I read that they're called 'special dreams'. I'm the only family member to have them. It's like he's here in the room, talking to me.''

Kim feels comforted when she sees her father in her sleep because it has reaffirmed he belief in the spirit world and she is sure he is trying to tell her that he is protecting her and her siblings.

The 31-year-old socialite - who is dating Kanye West - said: ''I totally believe in the connection between this world and the other side, so I love them because it feels like he's watching over me and the whole family.''
