West pursued Kardashian "for a long time" a source explained to Us Weekly earlier this year. A longtime pal of the Kardashian crew, West waited patiently in the wings while the E! star was wooed by, and then wed, Nets player Kris Humphries. After her marriage floundered, West and Kardashian grew even closer -- and in March, Kardashian finally agreed to take their friendship to the next level.
Now? Says another source, "Kim and Kanye are 100 percent having conversations about marriage."
