Remember that interview I posted just this morning of Kim Kardashian in Cosmo UK? The interview where she said, “I’m not even close to dating again! And it’s just ridiculous when I’m linked to people I’ve never met or heard of… I’ve learnt to not care. There are always going to be ridiculous rumours. I’m just going to work on me for a bit.”
Looks like she’s had a change of tune, because PEOPLE is reporting that Kim and her longtime friend, Kanye West are dating!
“Kim and Kanye have now just started dating,” a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE.
The pair are keeping things “light” for now, but “they’re seeing where it goes,” the source adds.
West, 34, and Kardashian, 31, have supported one another as friends for quite some time, with West even making appearances on the star’s E! show. “They have been close friends for years and decided to give it a try [with dating],” says the source.
For his part, West hasn’t exactly been shy about his feelings for Kardashian. In his new song “Theraflu,” West sings, “I admit I fell in love with Kim … ‘Round the same time she fell in love with him … That’s cool, babygirl, do your thing … Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.” (West is referring to his pal Jay-Z who owns the New Jersey Nets, the team Humphries plays for.)
The new couple enjoyed a movie date on Wednesday in New York City, where they reportedly saw The Hunger Games. Kardashian is in town to host the Today Show Friday.
As for Humphries, Kardashian has “completely moved on in a good way,” says another source.
I don’t see this ending well.
Kanye has written a new song for Kim called “Theraflu” and it leaked online today.
