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.

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

EVERYONE IS FORGETTING 1 VERY IMPORTANT THING ABOUT KIM & THE KARDASHIAN KLAN & THE WORD IS SWEAT SHOP. THEY UTILIZE THE USE OF SWEAT SHOP MODERN DAY SLAVES TO MAKE THEIR CLOTHING LINE. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT SWEAT SHOPS EXSIST & WHEN U HAVE THINGS MADE IN CHINA, INDIA ETC THAT IS WHAT U R UTILIZING....SWEAT SHOPS. THEY CAN PRETEND THEY DIDN'T KNOW BUT THEIR "TEAM" (PR) WENT INTO DAMAGE CONTROL & THEY WANT THERE CHECKS TO STILL COME THROUGH & DIDN'T WANT TO CREATE ENEMIES FROM THE FANS THEY DO HAVE SO THEY PLAY THE "WE DIDN'T KNOW" CARD. I KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO WORK IN PR & THEY SAY THAT STUFF IS COVERED UP ALL THE TIME...DUH! BUT HERE IS THE THING, KIM PRETENDS NOT TO BE THIS MONEY GRUBBING, SELF-SEEKING, SELFISH, NO TALENT INDIVIDUAL. OK IT DOESN'T TAKE A GENEIUS TO FIGURE OUT KIM HAS MANY "TEAM" EMPLOYEES DESIGNING CLOTHING WITH HER NAME ON IT & EVEN IF SHE DESIGNS A FEW PIECES, BIG DEAL. HER LINE IS CHEAP & UGLY ANYWAY SINCE THEY SPLASH IT ALL OVER THE INTERNET WITHOUT U EVEN HAVING GOOGLED IT. PLUS ANOTHER CHEAP PERFUME ISN'T A BIG CONTRIBUTION TO SOCIETY. KIM & HER FAMILY CAN PUT THEIR HEADS ON THE PILLOW AT NIGHT KNOWING THET CONTRIBUTE TO THE USE OF SWEAT SHOPS & ANOTHER HUMAN BEINGS MISERY. JUST BCUZ OTHERS USE SWEAT SHOPS DOESN'T MEAN THEY HAVE TO OR MAKE IT RIGHT. IF U MAKE THINGS IN USA THE PROFITS ARE WAY LOWER, SO THIS SPEAKS VOLUMES TO WHO KIM & THE KARDASHIAN KLAN REALLY ARE... LACK OF CONSCIENCE (I.E. SCOIPATHIC TRAITS), MONEY GRUBBING, SELFISH, FAME WHORING, DENIAL, LIES, COVER-UPS, TALENTLESS, BAD EXAMPLES AS HUMAN BEINGS. PEOPLE WHO ARE EDUCATED, HAPPY, FAMILY ORINENTED, ATTRACTIVE WITH MORALS/VALUES SAY THIS & THEY DON'T LIKE THE KARDASHIANS, SO IT'S NOT ABOUT BEING A "HATER" AS HER FANS TRY TO SAY TO SHUT U UP FOR CALLING A SPADE A SPADE, BUT RATHER THE "REALITY" OF WHO THEY ARE AS PEOPLE. THERE R PEOPLE IN THE WORLD DOING REALLY GREAT AMAZING THINGS THAT SHOULD BE CELEBRATED RATHER THAN THIS BAD EXAMPLE OF A FAMILY

Seriously, people. Why do you hate Kim Kardashian so much? Seriously, calling her a "slut" and "whore" and stating that she's full of "black man piss" is so far over the line, it make me wonder whether people who make such statements should even be allowed to participate in society at large.

Seriously, people. She's very successful. Sttop hating and learn to appreciate.

Kimmie, if I were you I'd fire my P.R. agency, consider disappearing for long while and start looking for a fall back career! I think your fifteen minutes of whoring around fame are up, not to mention that I seriously doubt another tape of you sucking yet another black **** will revive your career, if there was ever one!

Look at what happened to your genius mentor Paris Hilton!!!
