Kanye West first met Kim Kardashian back in 2002, but the couple didn’t start dating until around a decade later.
And the Gold digger rapper revealed he felt a ‘magnetic attraction’ to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star the first time he laid eyes on her.
Which is kind of awkward as she was married Damon Thomas else at the time…
In a chat for the mum-of-four’s E! True Hollywood Story, the 42-year-old said: ‘Any time I was around her and I saw her, it was magnetic attraction to this force of energy. She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong.’
Kim, 38, agreed: ‘I met Kanye in 2002. He would ask everyone who I was, and they always said like, “Oh, she has a boyfriend”.
‘We just always kept on connecting and coming into each other’s lives. Then, he invited me to Paris to his fashion show, and that’s when it happened. That’s when we started our relationship.
‘And I was like, “S**t, why didn’t this happen sooner?” It was just right.’ And the rest is history. But, despite dating for seven years, having four children – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm – together, it hasn’t always been easy for Kimye.
In fact, the KKW Beauty businesswoman explained people would often warn the rapper off her, claiming she would ‘ruin’ his career. Kim added: ‘I mean, everyone would tell him, “You can’t be with her, she’s a reality star. She’s going to sink your career!”
‘And he was just like, “But I love her. Like, I don’t care”.’
