Kim Kardashian Spills on Her Relationship With Kanye West: “I Don’t Know Why It Took So Long for Us to Get Together”
Kim Kardashian and new beau Kanye West seem to share a mutual love of fur, fancy footwear, and luxury vehicles. But according to the reality star, the duo connect on a deeper level as well.
In the second part of her interview with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey for this Sunday’s Oprah’s Next Chapter, Kim opens up about her blissful new relationship with the rapper.
“It’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through the similar things,” Kim says in a preview for the show. “I can really relate to his mother passing. He can really relate to my father passing. I mean, there’s so many similarities in our life that... I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space.”
Slowing things down a bit after her fast-paced marriage to (and quickie divorce from) Kris Humphries, Kim credits her chemistry with Kanye to the pair’s slow-and-steady seven-year friendship.
"I don't know why it took so long for us to get together," she says, "but I think I needed to go through all my experiences."
