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.

LMAO at the WhoreTrashian PR team trying to make it "clear" she wasn't getting pissed on while "married" to KH.

Match Made in Hell: She: superficial air-headed narcissist. He: Loudmouthed, disrespectful, low-class self-absorbed jerk. Don't forget how rude he was at the MTV awards and how he treated Taylor Swift. Good Lord, I hope these two don't have children, they'd spawn egotistical little monsters.

I can not stand either one. So maybe they will run off into the sunset and vanish out of public eye. Please!

The Kanye/Kim K Superstar relationship is a pure PR stunt.

More B.S. fake Kar-trashian drama.

I always laugh at how these articles are so slanted in Kim's favor. She "decided" she and Reggie didn't work any more. My guess is he didn't want her. They never behaved "inappropriately" when she was with Kris but hello, she is still a married woman who is committing adultery. These people live in a parallel universe where they can justify every wrong thing they do.

Never acted on there attraction, ya right. The checks in the mail, I love, and I won't c_m in your mouth. Lies, lies, lies. I guess in the fraud that is Kim's case it should read, I won't pee in your mouth. These two crap ass humans belong together, now if they would just go away.

Kris Jenner is a master media manipulator and the stupid media fall for it every time. Simply another pr stunt, drooling media splash it all over and she laughs all the way to the bank.

Kim seems to be one of those people in love with being in love. She has to have a man or her life has no meaning.
