Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West make up one of the big power couples of our time.
Kardashian, a budding lawyer and innovative entrepreneur who clawed her way to where she is from reality stardom (or if you want to go all the way back, a sex tape). And West, one of today’s most well-known, creative musicians and fashion designers.
Together, they have four children and enough clout to take over Western civilization.
Kim Kardashian West opens up about her relaitonship with Kanye West
In Kardashian West’s recent E! True Hollywood Story episode, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star spoke a lot about her relationship with West.
“I met Kanye in 2002,” recalled Kardashian West. “He would ask everyone like who I was, and they always said like, ‘Oh she, you know, has a boyfriend.’”
West confirmed his immediate attraction to his now-wife.
“Anytime I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy,” said West.
Despite Kardashian West always being involved with someone, the two would frequently run into each other throughout the years.
“We just always kept on connecting and coming into each other’s lives,” said Kardashian West.
Finally, after her divorce from Kris Humphries, West invited the reality star to Paris where everything changed.
“And then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and then that’s when it like happened. That’s when we started our relationship,” she said.
Once things turned romantic, Kardashian West had to question why their connection hadn’t happened sooner.
“Then I was like, ‘S*it, why didn’t this happen sooner?’ It was just right,” she said.
Kanye West’s friends warned him against dating Kim Kardashian
Kardashian and West had palpable chemistry right off the bat. But there were people in West’s life who were wary about his new relationship with the reality star.
“Everyone would tell him, ‘You can’t be with her. She’s a reality star. She’s going to sink your career,’” said Kardashian West. “And he was just like, ‘But I love her. Like, I don’t care.’”
West recalls a strong pull he felt towards Kardashian.
“She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong,” he said.
Kanye West loved Kim Kardashian from the beginning
In “Theraflu,” West revealed that he’d been in love with Kardashian since she was with Humphries.
I admit I fell in love with Kim
‘Round the same time she fell in love with him
That’s cool, babygirl, do your thing
Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team
(At the time, Jay Z. owned the New Jersey Nets, the team Humphries was playing for.)
But all’s well that ends well. The class clown got the cheerleader in the end.
You was always the cheerleader of my dream
That 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
