Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been friends for years, but Us Weekly says he wants more. A lot more. Insiders claim the music mogul is "crushing hard" on the soon-to-be-ex-Mrs. Kris Humphries.
"Kanye is obsessed with Kim and would marry her," alleges a Kanye confidant, with a Kim spy adding, "To have Kanye charming her feels good. Guys are afraid to get near her with all the drama, and here's a guy who's actively pursuing her."
Feeling flattered might explain why the starlet was willing to wear a pair of Yeezy's ridiculously over-the-top shoes while attending his fashion show in Paris last week.
"She flew in just to see him," tattles a Kim source. "Kanye begged her to come."
Romance rumors have been bubbling in recent months, thanks in part to the flapping gums of Kayne's ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose. But according to Kim's little sis Khloe, circumstances have gotten in the way of a hookup.
"I know they hung out, but I know it's never gotten [romantic]," she recently explained. "I genuinely think that because we have so much in common -- like our families, losing parents and we do have a lot of connections -- I think that if they were to go there, it would be a long relationship."
According to Us, Kanye really respects Kim's business acumen and "envisions the two of them running this dynasty together."
