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.

Oh come on it doesn't take Kim eight years to come we've all watched the tape.Kim is so fake she even has to fake her orgasms again referencing the sex tape,but just look on the bright side now all she has to do is insert Kanye's head(the big one) and squeeze and she'll save money on douches.My only question about those two is who pitches and who catches in this relationship oh and wonder if Kanye is such a jackass he hollers out his own name during sex just saying it must piss of the "Hip-hop blow up doll" when he does,just saying.

"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".

LOL...because we all know both Kanye and Kim always behave just so appropriately.

Both these two waste's of space deserve each other. I hope they get married because that old ho Kris Jenner deserves this clown for a son-in-law.

It wasn't easy for Kim to find someone with an IQ lower than hers. Go figure Kanye for the kind of guy who likes very sloppy seconds, or in Kim's case very, very VERY sloppy seconds multiplied by hundreds.

I find is so refreshing that the majority of these comments are negative. My faith in the intelligence, common sense and decency of our society has been restored.

So why did Kim leave a guy she said was immature only to move onto the world's biggest douchebag? Worst taste in men. ever.

A worthless whore and one of the biggest no-talent douchebags on the planet. Made for each other. Pro tip to the tabloids: no one cares. Really. No one. Not even me. Ya.

These two are so suited for each other - and that's NOT a compliment. Kanye is the undisputed King of Douchebags. Could you imagine the egocentric hellions they would unleash on the planet if their DNA fuses to make offspring? This is seriously the most vomit-inducing entertainment story of 2012 to date. DISGUSTING
