Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expanding their global reach. This week, the camera-friendly couple's business interests conveniently converged in London, with Kim in town to promote her perfume and Yeezy set for a five-night gig with Jay-Z.
On Wednesday night, Kimye hit local restaurant Zuma with her brother, Rob, and his new squeeze, singer Rita Ora, who just happens to be signed to Jay-Z's record label. Oh, and guess who else was at the restaurant? Yep, Jay himself.
Kim and Rita "seemed to really get on well together," a spy tells Us Weekly. "They were chatting constantly and laughing together. Kim was in a really good mood!"
At the end of the meal, Kanye "gave Kim a lovely tender kiss on the lips," pipes in the eyewitness. "They're cute together!"
And seemingly inseparable. On Thursday, West tagged along as Kardashian did interviews at BBC Radio 1 and joined her at the FiFi fragrance awards, although she flew solo while shilling her True Reflection perfume on the red carpet.
But the tabloids are still trying to stir up trouble. The latest issue of In Touch trumpets, "Hollywood Turns on Kim," which isn't, as we initially suspected, about her fame-activated libido.
Instead, it's how she apparently "doesn't have a friend in the world," all because she didn't attend the Met Gala with Kanye, a no-show that may or may not have been at the order of Vogue overload Anna Wintour.
According to the tab, onetime Kim pals such as Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria are "keeping their distance" over the fallout from her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries.
"She's always wanted to surround herself with famous people," sniffs a source, "but they don’t want anything to do with her anymore."
