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.

Anyone that has anything to do with KK is an absolute idiot. If this story is true, it sounds like she is "auditioning" her next boyfriend (victim). How sick.

The "perfect" couple both shallow, idiotic, no talent and fame w h o r e s. If you think about it there are no other humans beings that can couple and cope with them!

And just in time for his new release, too! Isn't that a coincidence? She is helping a friend make money. A few weeks from now, they will decide they make better friends and the whole thing will fade. Yeah, I am that cynical about celebrities.

Seriouslys? Dumb skank has been banging him for 8 years!!!!!!!!!! I think Kris needs to get Kanye on the stand in court so we can really see how long they have been banging!

Whey doesn't this dumb **** just cool it on dating for 10 damn minutes. She obviously doesn't have a clue on relationships and I don't care what she says - every time she comes out of a relationship she talks about how she's changed. BS - people change but not overnight and not that much. I can't believe this woman is over 30 she acts like a 16 year old.

it's sad when someone so beautiful and has everything still feels incomplete without a man - she will go for any relationship even bad ones , just to have someone .

Kris H is a classy guy    

I would just say that by the number of responses, people have truly turned you off KK. You are trash and once trash always trash. You cheated on your husband and wrecked the relationship that Kanye had with Amber. She is probably better off with out him anyway. He is a freak.

i thought that someone with their head screwed on properly would expect that any kinda relationship with a rapper will not last.....and since kim is looking for something that will last and have kids, one would think that this would be her last choice. but ok i am going to try think like her..... ...Kanye is a good guy he aint never gonna find another woman he gonna stick with kim for life. yea this gonna last.........NOT!!!!!!
