It’s hard to say exactly when things started for Kimye, in large part because they’ve known each other for so long. Kim and her sisters have been friends with Kanye for years. We’ve always heard the longest lasting relationships start out from friendship, so that bodes well for these two expectant parents!
Though we can’t say when things officially moved from platonic to romantic, the couple went public with their love in April 2012. Before they appeared together in public, however, Kanye released a song called “Way Too Cold” (formerly titled “Theraflu”) with this confessional lyric snippet:
"And I admit I fell in love with Kim 'Round the same time she fell in love with him Well that's cool, babygirl do your thing Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team"
The “him” ‘Ye refers to here is obviously Kris Humphries, who plays for the Brooklyn Nets. Kanye West’s BFF Jay-Z is a part owner of the team, and Kanye seems to think he could have had Kris pulled from the roster if he’d wanted to. How big of him to restrain himself!
Since then, they’ve been spotted together in L.A., Paris, and just about everywhere in between. Their love has now outlasted Kim’s marriage before separation AND Scott’s failed restaurant. Isn’t love crazy?
