In the space of a week, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have turned the showbiz world upside down with their romance (if indeed, it is a true relationship not a publicity stunt so favored by the Kardashian clan).
Now, they appear on Us Weekly’s latest cover, where a “friend” of the couple reveals that Kanye is “head over heels” in love with the reality star.
Us Magazine reports…
Imagine it: A double date between Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Jay-Z and Beyonce (with Blue Ivy in a stroller!).
Stranger things have happened. A pal tells the new Us Weekly, out now, that Jay-Z’s close friend and collaborator West, 34, has fallen “genuinely head over heels” for Kardashian, 31, with whom he was photographed gallivanting around NYC late last week.
“It’s not a PR stunt,” the source insists of the rapper and reality star. “They’re perfect for each other. He thinks she’s his Beyonce!”
Indeed, after years of a flirty friendship — West pursued Kardashian “for a long time,” another source says — the stars were finally aligned for the twosome (who share a fondness for luxury and the spotlight) to finally get romantic.
The “Otis” rapper split with model Amber Rose in 2010, and Kardashian is famously in the midst of an ugly divorce battle with Kris Humphries five months after she filed papers.
“Now that Kim has gotten over the Kris drama . . . she sees how much Kanye loves her,” a Kardashian source tells Us.
What do you think of the pair as a couple? And do believe their romance is real?
