Looks like Kim Kardashian really is living up to her vow that she'd play the field this year.
First, it was Gabriel Aubrey, then Kris Humphries, then (maybe) Kanye West, then (maybe) Shengo the bodyguard, and lord knows who else. Now, Kim’s taken New York and its men by storm! On the premiere episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, the celebutante flirted up a storm with babelicious Beyond the Break and One Tree Hill actor Michael Copon. The surprisingly shy Kimmy somehow found the guts to ask Michael out. Although their Serendipity date ends with a chaste kiss on the cheek, we think things are going to steam up between this couple. Let’s not forget the KKTNY promo where Kim’s spotted locking lips with the hottie.
We're not really sure what the circumstances are surrounding this particular exchange of spit, but rumors have been swirling for months that the two are close. Very close.
In October, a friend of Kim's told In Touch that the two are dating. "Kim is dating Michael," the source said. "They have known each other for years, but he and Kim just recently reconnected. He'll definitely be making appearances on Kim's new TV show...They have been running in the same circles and going to the same events forever, but now they are hitting it off romantically. The timing is right for both of them."
Ooohh la la!
Kim and Michael met in 2006 when they shot the surf drama Beyond the Break together, in which they played boyfriend and girlfriend. Michael’s been in the acting biz for almost 10 years now. He got his start back in 2001 playing Lucas Kendall (a.k.a. the Blue Ranger) in Power Rangers Time Force. Nice! Michael went on to nab roles in Bring It On: In It to Win It, The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior, and Night of the Demons. You can also catch him on the small screen with appearances on Greek, Reno 911, and Hawaii Five-O. Most recently, Michael’s dabbled into music. Be sure to buy his song, “Lets Get Nasty” on iTunes and blast it at your next Kardashian-style club night.
One thing’s for sure: we can’t wait to see more of Michael’s cute mug and his developing relationship with Kim!
