In an interview with Access Hollywood this week Kim Kardashian admitted she called Kanye after he didn’t reach out following her separation from Kris Humphries:
‘When I first met him, we worked on a project together and there was definitely a spark, but we were in other relationships and we kept our distance,” she said. “We stayed in touch here and there and then when he wasn’t in relationships, you know, it’s just our timing would always not really coincide.
“And then, I think it was six months after I was newly single in like 2012, I was like why not? Like, what am I waiting for?” she continued.
It was actually Kim who pursued Kanye after her marriage to Kris Humphries ended.
“I called [Kanye] because I’m sure it was really hurtful that I got married and, even though it’s not like we communicated all the time, I knew what he was thinking. So I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single again,” she explained. “He didn’t, and so I called him and I said, ‘Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and ‘I told you so,’ something?’ And then – he’s always been a good friend to me, like, we’ve always been there for each other – then he invited me to a fashion show of his in Paris and I went, and then the magic happened.”
Having come out of a very public divorce, Kim was initially hesitant to start a new relationship.
“But then in my head I was like, ‘You know what? Screw it. Like, this is probably what I’ve been waiting for, it’s been in front of my face,’” she said.
