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.

This is so BS and she's just saying that to make Kris mad. Kim was single for a LONG time before she got involved with Kris and Kanye has always been single except when with Amber (obviously, cause he's an *******) so they could have dated many many times. These 2 are so retarded and just want attention (no surprise)

Kim WhoreTrashian is a talentless troll that will do anything and anyone to remain relevant. She deserves Kangaye, he is a self absorbed piece of **** just like Kim and Kartrashian family.

There's so many lies and damaged control in this story, it's laughable. They have "flirted" on and off for 8 years, AND there were "sparks" for eight years, lmaoo. The PR made sure to mention how both never acted inappropriate while they were with other people, lmao, because everyone is believing Amber Rose accusation and plus it will look bad in the divorce case, we all know Kim Wh0re is a cheating s lut. Oh and they made sure to say how she the one that ended things with Reggie, because they not compatible anymore, lmaoo. Damn TMZ, you must be exhausted working overtime for this trashy family.

TMZ you're ridiculous with this story. Kim *did* screw him when he was with Amber, Kanye *is* gay - and the worst part, they announce they are "dating" the same exact day his song drops about his love for her. This is PR 101 from Kim's camp. Look how fast you quit talking about her flour bombing, her divorce, and all the other negative stories that have been coming for weeks on her. They are "girlfriends" who made an agreement to get the press off her back - AND IT'S ONLY WORKING BECAUSE YOU WONT SHUT UP ABOUT IT.
Kim is famous because she got p1ssed on! Don't forget!
