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.

I do not think "haters",is the correct term.More like the public conscience for"DISAPPROVAL" of unacceptable behavior.
Someone has to have a conscience,as the K.s clearly do not.

we need to pray for her....If she doesn't already have herpes she'll soon get herpes. Having a lot of sex partners will only cause blisters in your vajajay. Ask Paris Hilton!

Why is the oress working so hard to keep these Kardashian skanks in the limelight? Might it be possible for their public persona to just fade away and make room for someone or something just a little less dysfunctional?

wow    

The Kardashian sisters probably had major crushes on O.J when they were growing up.
Kim needs to settle down for real. She should have escaped L.A and settled with Reggie. They looked good together.

Can't wait to see Kanye and his acting on Kim's show. Those writers are brilliant. Kayne gets the beard of a lifetime and Kim gets another prominent celebrity boyfriend!! Ratings will skyrocket!!! Don't worry Harvey, you'll still get your chance someday to ride Kim's gravy train Azz.

When I as young and living in a small town, there was a woman that sleep around with numerous men and she was called the "town pump'. . . Kim Kardashian has taken this concept to an entirely new level. . . .. .

She is the country's pump.. .. . .my gosh, no wonder her arsssssss is so huge. ..with all of the various sperm that it must hold. .. . . what a pathetic human being. . .human debris. . wow

Beyonce and Jay-Z need to tell Kanye to keep Kim away. All Kanye is going to hear from Kim is “when do I get to meet Beyonce and Blue Ivy”? Kim will then have her photog’s there and ready to grab the picture of the meeting so she can profit from it. The person we really need to blame for the Krapdashians is RYAN SEACREST. I boycott anything SEACREST related now. Idol, E, and soon to be Today show Olympic coverage. . I noticed at the grocery store the other day that the mags with Kim on the cover weren’t selling. That made my day.
