He has a big ego and she has a derriere to match its size – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are dating y’all.
OKAY world, tell the truth. Are you ready for a romantic union that is as huge in diva attitude as it is in terms of drama between reality TV starlet Kim Kardashian and egomaniac rapper Kanye West?
Wait. You know what? Don’t answer that.
Life, as everyone knew it, came to an end early this month after various gossip blogs posted photographs of Kardashian doing the walk of shame the morning after she spent a night with West.
They had a dinner-and-movie date – they watched The Hunger Games, if you must know – the night before, after which Kardashian followed the rapper to his not-so-humble abode in New York City.
So, when she stepped out of West’s apartment the next morning flanked by the rapper’s bodyguards and more importantly, wearing the same black leather pants and white and gray sleeveless T-shirt she sported the previous evening, the paparazzi went wild.
Many fans (and haters especially) hoped that it was just a one-off incident – that maybe Kardashian was simply too intoxicated to drive back home and West was just a good citizen who lent his sofa for her to crash in for the night. Yeah right.
Sorry to disappoint but that was definitely not the case. Soon after the “sleepover”, West released a track titled Theraflu (later renamed as Way Too Cold) in which the lyrics went like this:
“I admit I fell in love with Kim/‘round the same time she fell for him/Well that’s cool, baby girl do your thing/Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.”
Yikes, so it’s true that West has a thing for Kardashian and he wants the world to know. This quickly started the speculation that the rapper would make regular appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians – the show that many people love to hate but end up watching anyway.
Did you know that Keeping Up has been renewed for three more seasons and that the Kardashian clan will get a US$40mil (RM122mil) paycheck for it? Yes people, that means that all of our prayers didn’t work and we’re still stuck with this shallow, ubiquitous, fame-hungry clan.
TMZ reported that this is the biggest deal in reality TV history and that amount doesn’t include the products associated with the hit show from which the family can make more money from.
Hmm, that Kris Jenner may have trouble controlling her bladder but boy, does she know how to control her family business!
The Kardashian/Jenner matriarch now has another reason to smile as there have been reports that West has agreed to appear on their reality TV show.
That just means more people will tune in to see the drama that unfolds – and yes, with West around, you better believe that we’ll be seeing some drama – around the theatrical family, and they’ll be more famous and ultimately make more money.
However, the relationship might not last long enough for people to see it being played out on television. Kardashian, as we all know, is infamous for her string of unsuccessful relationships; from professional American footballers Reggie Bush and Miles Austin to her bodyguard Shengo and finally the 72-day marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries.
Even her sister Khloe is not taking the sudden pairing too seriously.
“I don’t think it’s serious. I think it’s too soon,” said Khloe on Watch What Happens Live. “But because they’ve been friends for so long, it’s just so easy and that’s something I love seeing for Kim – the easiness and how happy she is. And it’s just more of a great friendship and friendships make the best relationships.”
Erm, okay … but seriously, can a relationship between a drama queen and king ever last? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Sharm says: Kanye, imma let you date Kim … but I think Beyonce has the best behind of all time.
