Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s new romance has had years to bloom, but even so, the rapper wasn’t necessarily Kim’s first choice when it came to reentering the dating game. A source tells TMZ that the 31-year-old socialite flew down to Miami in early March to see if she wanted to reignite the flame with Reggie Bush.

In spite of her on-again, off-again history with the NFL player, Kim apparently decided to move onto the next man waiting in the wings: Kanye, her friend since 2004. According to sources, the two wanted to explore the chemistry between them, so she flew to Paris to attend his fashion show. After a fun-filled day of $5,800 shoes and go-karting, the A-list pair decided to they were ready to make a go at it as a couple.

In spite of reports that the high-profile romance has been ongoing throughout the years — and throughout relationships with other partners — the source claims that they never crossed any lines. In fact, Yeezy’s allegedly been pulling out all the stops to sweep the celebutante off her feet. The insider spills that he had the entire top floor of FAO Schwarz roped off so that they could learn to play “Chopsticks” on the massive piano from the movie Big during their much-photographed day out.

Cute as it is, we can’t help but mourn the end of Bush and the Tush. But we’ll move on since they clearly have.
