We’ve heard and seen almost all of the Kardashian goss, but this is one story we have not yet had the privilege of discovering – the moment Kim fell for Kanye and the beginning of Kimye. During the Keeping Up With The Kardashians 10th anniversary special with E! Entertainment host Ryan Seacrest, Kim Kardashian spilled the beans on how she fell “madly in love” with Kanye West.
‘”I met him in 2002 or 2003”, she describes. “He was recording a song with Brandy and I was her friend and vividly remember hanging out with him. Then they did a video together so I’d see him a few times”.
“I remember he was asking his friends ‘who is this Kim Kar-de-jon?’. He didn’t know what my name was and it was really cute.” Afterwards, the two became close friends, but despite Kanye’s efforts, Kim was not interested. “Right before I got married to Kris Humphries, we were talking and I just went a different direction,” Kim revealed. “I think I had to go through that to figure out what I wanted.”
It was not long after her separation with Humphries that she fell for Kayne and the Kimye romance began. “After my breakup, I was feeling really low and down and he was like, ‘Just come to Paris and see my fashion show’. He jokes that he put on this whole fashion show just to get a date with me,” the mother of two (soon to be three!) describes.
Where better to fall in love than the capital of romance, Paris? “I went and I stayed with him and that’s where we started dating. I swear from the moment I landed and was there, I fell madly in love with him and I thought ‘Oh my god, why didn’t I do this sooner?’ This is like what real life is like and love and fun and real support. This is what it is.”
