Kim Kardashian Pursued Kanye West Relationship After Split From Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian is opening up about how her and her husband Kanye West got together for the first time.

“I was always attracted to him,” the 34-year-old reality star told Access Hollywood. “When I first met him, we worked on a project together and there was definitely a spark, but we were in other relationships and we kept our distance, and that was that. And then, I think it was six months after I was newly single in 2012, I was like, ‘Why not? Like, what am I waiting for?’”

Kim continued that she hoped Kanye would contact her after her split from Kris Humphries, but he didn’t end up calling.

“I called him because I’m sure it was really hurtful that I got married,” Kim added. “And even though it’s not like we communicated all the time, I knew what he was thinking. So I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single again. And he didn’t. And so I called him and I said, ‘Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and say ‘I told you so,’ something.’”

She added that “the magic happened” when she went to his fashion show in Paris, but she did have reservations. “In my head I was like, ‘You know what? Screw it. Like, this is probably what I’ve been waiting for, it’s been in front of my face,’” Kim said.

    They won’t last, not because I don’t like her, but because they got married too soon. They dated for less than a year, had a baby and then got married. There are high school sweethearts who have been through more as a couple.

    Oh to have her arrogance…i mean confidence. I love the way she makes it sound like he was desperately pining over her and was devastated that she got married to someone else. clearly he was so thrilled at her becoming single again, he called for a date. oh, wait, no. he didn’t

    According 2 Amber Rose “was the woman in Kanye’s life when Kim was sidling him up as a prospective mate. Amber went on saying that Kim didn’t care that Kanye and her were together. Kim would call his personal phone leaving messages and then began text ing Kanye and messages contain explicit photos along w each message. So Kim if you plan on telling the story THEN DO IT RIGHT OR JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!!!!!! Every thing isn’t a pathway 4 you 2 make money………

  • Patricia Williams

    He’s NOT going any where without her; WHY YOU ASK??????? Well for 1 she LET HIM TAKE NAKE PHOTOS OF HER THEN POSTED THEM ON THEIR INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. Whatever Kanye says IS etched in stone far as she is concerned. She has very little under her cap cause AIN’T NO MAN GOING 2 PIMP ME when I can do it myself; married or not”……..

    Liar. If she really liked him, then why settle for him last of all? And Kanye was dating Amber Rose at the time, who said Kim and him were having an affair behind her back at the time. Kanye is an ugly man. Who would be attracted to him? He is far more richer and more famous then Kim, thats why she went after him. She wants the invites to all the elite events and mingle with A lisers and get Vogue covers too. I doubt she loves Kanye at all. He is being used by her and her family .

    Thats okay, Kanye married other men’s leftovers and he will suffer by it. Kim’s former partners should be thanking their stars to have gotten rid of the peed infested sk..ank and money eater.

    LOL. I love reading fiction. My favorite genre.

  • Deanna777

    I’ll bet she didn’t wait until she split from Humphries. Rumor has it that she was hooking up with Kanye while she was with Reggie Bush.

  • Mz.Understood

    Then Dimbuttcile and her family should be right up your alley! :)

  • Mz.Understood

    Dimbutt! Tell the truth! Kuntye was not SINGLE as in ‘had no romantic attachments’. He was WITH someone, was not interested in your newly found single status, so you commenced to send him texts and pics and whatever it took to get his attention away from where he was. I just don’t get why it worked, he likes men, not h o e s.

  • JC

    Well, I can honestly say I feel these two were meant for each other.

  • Raisa Kirks

    Like is her favorite word

  • The Enchanted Boudoir

    so romantic…
