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, enough is enough. Don't think all black men see you as a trophy. Some have unresolved feelings from the treatment of their female ancestors and you are easy trick. Love should come from any race not just A.A. men. TMZ may be giving you coverage, but even the blind can see you are not a careful, selective lady. Banging one man after another should put all females around you with men, on alert. One day when your looks fade, no respectful man will want you. That sex tape you put out showed you are easy and can be turned upside down and around...and willing to do anything for the ride. Sweetness, any one that uses another as a toilet, cannot give genuine love, nor respect. I am a A.A. female, not bothered by inter-racial couples, but bothered by another female being in the public eye that may influence like behavior from some very young girls. "Well MR. TYLER PERRY ....still think this is role model material?" Well we can expect that stupidity from a rich man who break traffic laws then yell......racial. Here we have a lost female who give more rides than greyhound, and a rich writer/producer who think everyone should bow down before thee. SMDH

No offense meant-but being with a black jiggaboo,is hardly an elevation in status.

the real diva    

it's Easter. couldn't you give us a Happy Easter and have one day where you did not have a story on the Kardashians. i know Harvey like to get his daily fix on them but this is ridicules. noone cares what they do, who they date. or how many poops they take. enough is enough. Time the Kardashians got shipwrecked on a desert island or something so TMZ and everyone else never hears from them again.

i don't believe any relationships between famous/rich people ever last. find someone that isn't just like you and maybe you have a chance. some people don't realize that the more people you get with = you being worth less and used up. i certainly don't want anyone that's been all over the place.

Lies, lies, lies. This slut cheated with her then boyfriend Reggie with Kanye when he was going out with Amber she is a disgusting piece of ****. I wouldn't be surprised if she was cheating on Kris too because shes a whore who cannot keep her legs close. Actually remember that guy that was saying she was sending sexy pictures and messages to him just before she got married? Also she cheated on her first husband and was sleeping around with other men including her sex-tape partner. She is just nasty and she might have made all this money but she is known as a whore and hooker I rather have my normal life then have hers and be known as a slut. TMZ need to stop reporting on her and her family they are a bunch of nobodies who are famous because their daddy helped a serial killer get off for murdering his wife and friend and because of her making a sex-tape and selling it to a porn company. She has no real friends and no decent guy wants anything to do with her. She is a lonely, sad, pathetic, loser and I hope karma bites her in her fat, fake, ass real hard because she is nasty person who would do anything for fame and fortune using and hurting people in the process. Vile woman.
