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.

The look better together than Kris and Kim anyway. I think Kanye is a little more friendly and laid back then Mr. I thmk I'm perfect Kris. I think that he might really connect with Kim on some level, at least they have being hated by the pop culture in common.

I think Kanye has deeper feelings than Kris so he is more like how KIm is. She really needs someone to be nice to her after the Kris disaster. It was just painful to watch how indifferent and mean he was to her day after day for no reason. No wonder she turned mean herself until Chloe told her oof. It is good she has a sister like Chloe who looks out for her.

I don't know how long Kanye will be able to keep up the sincerely nice act though. I didn't think Kim was his type but somehow they look cute together.

Kris is the one who never loved Kim so that is why he is not upset about her dating, unless he thinks Kanye is another player besides. Kris just wants to bake cookies with his mom and play basketball anyway, and maybe do some chairty appearances for little kids. He is not into jet setting with the likes of Kim Kardashian.

This is nothing but a big PUBLICITY STUNT. I love Kanye but I don't believe that his relationship is real. He has a song come out and conveniently they get together. Not just that, they are seen in public like sitting in an area of a restaurant where they can be photographed. No visible hickey that she knew was there will convince me otherwise. Those two FRIENDS are using each other for attention.

Like any and every explanation a Kardashian offers, this whole diatribe is a dump truck load of wet, rancid cat crap. Or what Mike Walters calls "marketing genius".

If anybody thinks for even one second that this is nothing but a PR stunt, then I have some swamp land in Florida to sell ya!
For that Kris to get caught up in that whole mess, but he appears as dumb as a box of rocks.

Kanye and Kim K are the two biggest media whores in the business. One thing about both of them is they are masters of promoting themselves.

I think they have been screwing for years, this is just a convenient time to make it public........... say for record promotions perhaps?

I have a hard time believing that neither of them ever cheated on who they were with, considering that they're both whores.

This is a joke, plain and simple, if trashy Kimmie would have wanted to be with Loser West she would have let him know. The only reason she is now sleeping with him is because no other black guy with a brain in his head wants this trash. He just happens to be the only black dude who wants to stoop to her level and he didn't have to stoop that far. This won't even last as long as her phony marriage did.

This relationship is a desperate attempt by her mother to make her appear likeable. This woman is unwanted trash and her TV show is about to start season 7 and they can't have Kim alone and hated so they got this sucker to play along.
