Kim Kardashian

Kanye West Relationship

Was 8 Years Coming

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

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.

Hope the will be happy for 90 days and called it quits. They can't share a mirrow or a bed. Kayne and Jay z are on the down low. How will Kim K fit in with Gay Z and Bey once and done. Just LaBrona James and Dwayne Wade. Down low with women they are not fooling me what man rubs another man shoulder on the Basketball Court. Wade to James gay men on the down low those two can't be away from eachother and fooling the women no they are no fools they are in it for the money.

Let's think back to Kanye completely showing hi A** in the Taylor Swift incident, not to mention Kim literally showing hers and A LOT more in a sex tape. These two s*** bags deserve each other... Perfect match!!!

Kim Kardashian is so boring. What does she do? She poses pretty. She talks about herself. It's just boring.

His hash ion show? I guess they both have the ghetto fabulous clothing taste in common, with the furs, bandage dresses and hooker attire that I'm sure he finds appealing. Take that away from her, along with her makeup artist and what's left? He's talentless and can't dance either, so they have that in common as well. The only problem I foresee is Kanye is a rip roaring, lamp shade wearing alcoholic who will take a piss on her, just like the rest of them. Good luck with that one
