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.

This media slut is going to do nothing but jump from one man to the next just like Paris Hilton. She probably spreading STD's while sleeping with half the world. There is no way that stuff is that good in bed.

The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

BTW, Reggie and Kim "deciding they weren't compatible anymore" is PR speak for, Reggie didn't want her..so Kim went on to the next one.

Even Shakespeare knew the deal about TMZ and the Kardashians over 400 years ago. "The lady doth protest too much, methinks".

This Armenian POS is more disgusting every day. What is it with this family & their love of the black trouser snake? Kris Humphries has a mental issue for sure to ever want to catch a ride on that train to start with. Talking about hard up. I don't understand how ANY white guy would ever consider beddin' that slut down.

YEAH RIGHT...8 Years in the making. HA, this b!tch can't wait 8 seconds let alone 8 years to keep people talking about her. What a joke! She cheated on Kris with Kanye while he was with AmberRose. Count your blessings Kris that you never knocked her up! These two deserve each other & their respective STD's. Wonder if Kanye interrupted Kim while she was orgasm-ing, "you know, I'm the greatest!".

SHE decided her and Reggie weren't compatible?!?! Can she even match a pair of shoes without someone's assistance?

What a surprise that she's dating another "K" person.. she really needs a new PR team, NO ONE IS BUYING WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO SELL! Go hide out for a while, every move you make disgusts people MORE & MORE!
