Kim Kardashian

Kanye West Relationship

Was 8 Years Coming

4/8/2012 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kayne West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been dating for roughly two weeks, but it's a relationship 8 years in the making ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, the two have been friends since 2004 -- and have flirted on-and-off -- but the timing was never right to pursue a relationship ... until now.

We're told both sides always felt a spark, but they NEVER acted inappropriately while Kanye was with Amber Rose ... or while Kim was with Kris Humphries.

In fact, we're told Kim was recently kicking around the idea of reconciling with Reggie Bush ... but after hanging out with him in Miami a few weeks ago, decided the two weren't compatible anymore.

Kim finally reconnected with Kanye in Paris when she attended his fashion show ... and shortly after that, both sides decided to "give dating a shot."

And so far, we're told Kim has been super-impressed with the rapper ... who pulled one hell of a surprise when they hit up FAO Schwarz in NYC a few days ago.

Sources say Kanye made some calls and had an entire floor of the toy store roped off so they could get a private lesson from a guy who taught them how to play "Chopsticks" on the over-sized piano featured in the movie "Big."

Kim's currently back in L.A. ... but we're told she plans to get her ass back to NYC as soon as possible to see him.

Who cares?? You act like they're Barack and Michelle, Bill and Hilary, Oprah & Stedman, Victoria & David. They're not some earth ****tering couple. Kanye is a little more worthwhile because he has done some things. But as far is Kim is concerned, don't get it twisted. She is NOT America's sweetheart. More likely the most hated woman in America right now. But if TMZ really thinks that, just realize that Kim's white fans are tired of seeing her go from black man to black man, not so cute in still conservative America. That is REALITY!!!

Is it any wonder her "marriage" lasted all of 72 seconds? She used to be Paris Hilton's assistant... need I go on?

Can honestly say that these two deserve one another. Ms Kardashian is subsequently going to be by herself in a few years (she is already in her 30's), and think she will be a lonely older woman. She may seriously regret her lack of self discipline in her earlier years.

THIS IS THE WORST PR SET-UP - JUST KEEPS GOING DOWN-HILL....
Why on earth would you mention these two had feelingS for each other over this period of time... now this only proves Amber Rose( WHO NO-ONE WAS EVEN MENTION BEFORE THIS) statements WERE true---KK had no morales seeing KANYE while he was with Amber.. enough to cause AMBER to break from him... ..
2) Shows KK IS really desperate... to think this relationship makes her improve her "image" - no it NOW looks worst then EVER...

3) The KK Klan are really hoping you WILL watch their shows.. they will stoop to these PR levels no matter what the image cost - for ratings & $$$$... it's time people - step away from this...it's like a hamster on a wheel... it will never go anywhere accept in their $$$$ pockets... Enough of this stupidity already....

Two piles of excrement that should be flushed. Next week Ktrash will move on to yet another magic relationship. Best way to deal with her is not shop where she "sells"
