The second half of Kim Kardashian‘s interview with Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” aired Sunday night (June 24), where Oprah finally asked the big questions – what exactly is going on with Kim K. and Kanye West?
“I’ve known him, we met maybe almost a decade ago. I’ve known him for a really long time. We’ve been friends for like six or seven years, so it’s very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands, has gone through similar things,” Kim says of her new relationship. “I can really relate to his mother passing. He can really relate to my father passing. There’s so many similarities in our life that I feel like I’m at a really happy, good space.”
When asked why it may have taken so long for them to get together as more than friends, Kim says, “I think we’ve always had an attraction for each other, but we’ve always been in either other relationships or it just wasn’t the right timing. One day it just happened and I’m like – it took me by surprise even.”
And Oprah asks Kim point-blank if the relationship is a publicity stunt.
“No,” says Kim. “It’s your heart you’re playing with. I couldn’t sacrifice my heart for a publicity stunt.”
But is Kanye marriage material?
“I have to first get divorced,” says Kim. “But to have him in my life this way, I think, says a lot about us.”
What do you think? Kim + Kanye 4EVA?
