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.

Does not matter what you print, her public persona is fraud and liar. She has zero credibility and no ammount of damage control can stop the run away train that will never derail called Kim Kardashian.

Hopefully it works for them. I can see it. They both lost parents who were important to them. So they have a deep connection on that level.

incredible on how many people accuse tmz for being on kim's side but they always post your hateful comments. what suprizes me most about you haters is that if you hate some why are you so familiar with kim's life. i could only think that you haters are obsessed with her and are jealous of her. oh please don't try to say that this is not true! if i hate someone i write them off my list and definitely not follow their lives and what they are doing. i do agree that kim should not go out with kanye(just the wrong guy for her).to you haters stop hating on kim for being successful.we all make mistakes in our lives(you all have made bad choices as well)but no one is magnifying your mistakes. it's also asd that you can't even be brave enough to put your names to these comments(real cowards). if you took the time to stop hating you would realize that because of kim's success she is able to employ many people who have families and depend on their jobs. can't wait to get those DISLIKES(lol), but you know i'm speaking the truth.

Who Knew    

So he kicked all the kiddies out of a toy store for a skank, Reggies drilled her out one last time, they lied about cheating on their partners (that fraud is still married), and the source "adultress momager", spins a positive slant.

Blah blah blah. Every damn day this woman is shoved down our throats. Sick of hearing about her. There are way more important people and important things going on in this world. Get over her people. It's ridiculous.

Kris Jenner is the head trollop.She has dragged Bruce Jenner's name through the mud.(former champion).She has besmirched his good name ,with her vile schemes.Sadly,he doesn't seem to care? Is he just as money hungry as his lovely step children?$

I tend to believe Amber Rose, he was sneaking around with Kim and got caught. They have no doubt been F buddies for years, kinda like Jared Leto and Ashley Simpson.

Oh yes, I'm sure he never cheated on Amber Rose with Kim and I'm sure she never cheated on anyone and this is true love and not crass promotion because he has a CD coming out and her fading reality star. Wow, how stupid do both of those egomaniacs think people are?! D-list famewhores.
