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.

Kanye West showed what he was about when he interrupted Taylor Swift's moment of glory, ""I'm sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time," he proclaimed as B looked on from the crowd, stunned. " Seems to be a perfect match for Kimmy... but the visual? SKANKY at its best.....

LOL...even Stevie Wonder can see through this lame PR story. Kim's camp it trying to make it sound like her and Kanye have been "in love" with each other for a long time but the timing was not right.

Amber Rose stated one of the reasons her and Kanye split was because he was cheating on her with Kim and at this time Kris H. was unheard of. Kim was still with Reggie and she was cheating on him with Kanye.

Kim tried to get Reggie back after her and Kris split and Reggie didn't bite. INO Kim is lying when she said she found out her and Reggie weren't compatible anymore. Reggie don't want her anymore.

Snoop Dog had her pegged right when he said she was a ho.

Stop reporting on these two pathetic people and see how long they last together.

Kim Kardashian has never not done anything out of greed, money and attention.

Kim/Kardashians destroyed their own name, reputation, brand and so on. The bogus weddding/marriage scam E! paid for backfried on her/them big time. Kris Humphries was used and when he was no longer needed to suite Kims greed purposes tossed. As we know that con, scam backfired on her.

Sketchers replaced Kim with a French Bull dog (chances are the bull dog wasn't going to sue) being replaced by a dog, that's never good. Big time ouch. Lawyers consider Kim 'libel proof' when she herself did and caused so much damage to herself, her likability, credibility, name, brand and so on. Yet she is sueing Old Navy/The Gap for $20 million dollars over a commercial that never had anything to do with her for lible and damages and Kim claims it cost her $20 million dollars. The problem is Kim can't 'proove' her claim. Because it's a BS bogus lawsiute claim.

Kim Kardashian is on the cover of US magazine stating how Kris Humphries is trying to 'steal her money and ruin her name' that's beyond pathetic.

TMZ you do know you aint fooling nobody right? I see you are working for Kris Jenner now. She is leaking this story to say what? That Kim K is not a lying wretched woman? It all makes sense now. She was sleeping with Kanye and Kris concurrently and she decided she wanted Kanye's schlong and money more than Kris'. At least we thank her for sparing Kris H.

The good news though is that when this is all said and done Kanye will have enough materials for 40 albums. Popcorn manufacturers will also win because we will be eating a lot of it while we watch this movie. She really has cursed herself by calling herself Elizabeth Taylor. So sad.

Celebrities Suck    

What ever happen with normal American TV shows? I love Lucy, The three stooges, Perfect Strangers, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, albert and costello, little house on the prairie, and the list goes on. These tv shows were worth watching. What's on tv now it worthless. The only thing you find on tv now in days are shoes about drunks, ho's, alcoholics, and people going to rehab? pathetic!
