Kanye West

I Declared My Love For Kim

YEARS AGO ... In Song

Kanye West
publicly declared his undying love for Kim Kardashian all the way back in 2009 -- when she was still dating Reggie Bush -- but everyone was too dumb to realize it at the time.

Sources extremely close to Yeezy tell us, the rapper penned several lyrics confessing his love for Kim in the 2009 hit "Knock You Down," indirectly referencing Kim and her then NFL star boyfriend.

The main reference -- "You was always the cheerleader of my dreams / To seem to only date the head of football teams / And I was the class clown that always kept you laughing / We were never meant to be, baby we just happened."

Then later in the song, Kanye says, "You should leave your boyfriend now."

We're told the song is just one example of Kanye's secret references to Kim in his music -- and it's proof he's been obsessed with her for years.

Kanye is obsessed with KK. HOW many sonds has he written for her. Dude you are already dumped and you don't even realize it yet. I got a song for you. You will need a rose petal and then sing, she loves me, she loves me not. And each time you pull a petal until the rose is gone. And so will KK

just sayin    

Let them speak. The more they declare their so called love for eachother and "prove" a past love, the more her marriage to Kris H looks like a hoax which would benefit him in court. Go Kris H.!

SO, Kim's X was right about her making a publicity stunt out of their marriage. Kanye was stalking behind the scenes for years & while she's in the middle of a divorce you let the CatOuttaTheBag(millions on the table). What am I thinking Yay's ball'n, he's got the $ to cover her loses to HumpfreeZe.

Wasn't it Amber Rose who said Kim was the reason Kanye and Amber split? Or one of the reasons anyway. Those two are not slick.

Kanye has mentioned Kim by name is his songs even back in 2008, he mentioned her in the song Stay Up(viagra) and digital girl.

See this is even sadder, how "obsessed" is Kanye that he supposedly was chasing after this girl since 2009 and she STILL chose other men to date and MARRY over him? Reggie bush, Miles Austin, her bodyguard, Kris Humphries(and whoever else she dated in between time, did I forget someone?)

What could possibly be so drastically different about Kanye this time? I think she just needs to be in a relationship and it doesn't much matter who it is. If this is true, Kanyes a bit more pitiful than I initially thought. Have some pride boy, who wants to be the last option? And no I and others didn't notice.... who would have connected that lyric to Kim K?

Why is this guy so angry? He hates white people so much and he dates a white girl? He's got some serious issues.

More likely he's been in love with random men he meets in public bathrooms. He can dredge up all his old hits as proof he was in love with Kim but he's gay. NEXT!

Like the self-centered jerk he is he is wrong. He clearly confused stupidity with disinterest. Few knew or suspected because very few people had ANY interest in what he did.
I would wager few even care now.

In the end, and that end won't take all that long, Kanye will find out for himself that the KarTRA$Hian gang will not be good for his "image", or record sales. That's when Kim will find herself, once again, on the sidewalk, and it couldn't happen to a more deserving tramp.

geez TMZ . . . it's SO old! All this sucking up to Kardashians constantly. If you see the comments, in Kardashian pieces . . and IF you put your readers first (as you should) you would stop all this.

I wrote a song about urination that was inspired by Kartrashian.
