After weeks of speculation, a new report seems to confirm the rumor: Kim Kardashian has a new boyfriend, and it’s Kanye West! Kim and Kanye have both said in the past that they are just close friends, but apparently now, they’ve taken their relationship to a new level. Get ready for a new power couple, people!
According to TMZ, Kim K and Kanye West actually just started dating. In fact, they had a “first date” on Wednesday night. What did they do? Jet off to some remote, tropical island for fun in the sun? Fly to Paris for a romantic dinner? No, Kanye and Kim did what so many other new couples do: They hit the movies. The new couple saw the film ‘The Hunger Games’ in New York City.
TMZ also reports that it’s Kanye West who is pursuing Kim, noting that he’d been after her “for a while,” and that he’s released a new song about his feelings for her. And yes, those feelings were happening while she was with Kris Humphries. Did Kim K know Kanye liked her while she was dating and/or married to Kris? Could that be one reason for their split? Probably not, but it sure adds yet another layer of high drama to the situation.
Kanye West seems to actually confess his love for Kim Kardashian in the song “Theraflu.” FYI: Here are the lyrics in question:
And I admit I fell in love with Kim
Around the same time she fell in love with him
Well that’s cool baby girl, do your thing
Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.
That seems pretty straightforward, doesn’t it? In that last line, it’s possible Kanye’s referring to the fact that Jay-Z is a part-owner of the New Jersey Nets, the team Kris Humphries played for while he was with Kim.
Wow. Just, wow. All of this is happening fast, and no doubt more stories about Kim K and Kanye West together will surface in coming days. Stay tuned!
Should Kim Kardashian apologize to Kris Humphries? That’s one of the issues at the forefront of the ongoing Kardashian/Humphries divorce mess today. Apparently, new reports say Kris wants his former bride to say she’s sorry for everything she put him through when they were married (for a matter of weeks, mind you). There’s more, though: Kris also wants Kim K to issue a “public apology” for the “fake” wedding!
Should Kim Kardashian say she’s sorry? If she doesn’t, this Kris Humphries divorce might not go away anytime soon. The New York Post reports that Kris is fully prepared to go the duration and NOT accept a multi-million dollar settlement from Kim. That is, unless she does what he’s asking. It sure seems like Kris is digging in his heels on this one. If Kim doesn’t give in, she’s definitely looking at a really long, drawn-out divorce battle. If she does give in, though, she’d basically be admitting that the entire Kris Humphries wedding was a fake. Are her hands tied?
Kris Humphries seems to be going after not only celebrity sex tape star, but also her mom, Kris Jenner. The Post quotes an unidentified source as saying that Humphires is “particularly keen” on trying to discredit Kim and Kris’ claims “that they didn’t profit off the wedding.”
But they did, didn’t they? Really, people, how could they NOT profit? The whole situation is sad. No one is going to win in this battle, not really. Sure, Kris could come out with a few more million dollars — but in the long run, his image has taken a beating. As for Kim’s image, it’s really in the toilet!
Should Kim K do what Kris Humphries is asking of her? Stay tuned!
The fallout from the now infamous sex tape’s star Kim K flour-bombing incident continued this week, when Kim Kardashian indicated she would likely file a formal complaint against the attacker. Apparently, she’s taking a little time to think things over before she makes that decision. When this flour attack first happened, Kim seemed to shrug the event off, even making light of it with humor. Now? Well, she’s not laughing.
The woman who allegedly doused Kim Kardashian with flour as she strutted on the red carpet last week has been identified as Christina Cho. According to reports, Cho could face non-criminal battery charges. Who is she? The Daily Mail reports that Cho is an animal rights activist who is an “influential member” of PETA. Here’s where it gets uglier: Khloe Kardashian, Kim’s little sister and a staunch supporter of animal rights, is now furious. Khloe’s worked with PETA on anti-fur campaigns in the past, but now that her own sis was a target? No longer. Khloe issued an angry statement, saying:
Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior. I’ve been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me.
Khloe Kardashian is sticking up for her sister, and rightly so. She says that what happened to Kim last week was an example of “bullying.” Yeah, she’s really, really mad.
Will Kim Kardashian file a complaint against Christina Cho? That seems likely. Once she does, police can move forward with pressing charges in the case. Stay tuned…
Kim Kardashian is definitely not one to shy away from any red carpet, but how about a red and white one? On Thursday night, sex tape star was attacked by a woman wielding a bag of flour! A shocked Kim was completely covered in white powder. Ever the professional, Kim took everything in stride, though. She quickly scooted out of the event, got cleaned up and, within minutes, was right back out there!
Kim Kardashian was on the red carpet at the London Hotel in West Hollywood when the incident happened. Somehow, a woman got past Kim’s (heavy) security and managed to throw an entire bag of cooking flour on her. The woman, who hasn’t been identified, was whisked away from security on the scene and later arrested. Why did she do it? That’s unclear — but if she wanted to get Kim K’s attention, she definitely got it.
Some are speculating that Kim Kardashian was flour-bombed by someone affiliated with the group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). TMZ reports that the suspect yelled “Fur Hag!” at Kim just before she threw the flour on her. A a spokesperson for PETA says while they’re “supportive” of the attacker, the group wasn’t responsible for the incident.
Either way, the key thing here is that Kim handled herself very well. She got cleaned up, got back out there and even managed to joke about everything later, saying she’d even asked her makeup person for “more powder” before she hit the red carpet. This is probably NOT what she meant.
Rumors that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are dating have been nearly constant over the years, but now, Kim K sex tape star is setting the record straight: She says she is not seeing anyone at the moment. During an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Kimmy mentioned,
“I think I’m still married.”
Yes, you are…and for now, it’s probably for the best that you aren’t seeing anyone. Things are certainly complicated enough with the Kris Humphries mess!
Sex tape star also talked to Seacrest about the recent Jon Hamm dispute. These two have been in a war of words after Hamm called Kim a “f***ing idiot” during a recent magazine issue. Kim says now, “I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” adding that “…not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.”
Good point. With all the drama that continually surrounds Kim Kardashian, is it any wonder that she wants to keep the focus on her work and try to shut out all the negativity? Hamm, unfortunately, threw down the gauntlet with his comments — so Kim had no choice but to respond. Now, hopefully, these two will let it go and move on. Both are successes in Hollywood — Kim in reality TV and Hamm on Mad Men. There’s no reason for this kind of spat to go on and on.
As for her relationships, Kim says she and Kanye remain close friends. Whether there will be a romance later down the line remains to be seen, but for now, it’s buddies only.
It seems Kris Humphries is not about to sit quietly while all sorts of crazy stories about his divorce from Kim Kardashian swirl around him. And as we know from Kim Kardashian sex tape, socialite able to make a ballyhoo from anything. No, Kris (and his people) are firing back hard: They’re trying to set the record straight on all sorts of reports, including a really recent one that claimed Kris wants millions to walk away from the divorce and get an annulment.
A lengthy statement issued by Kris Humphries’ legal team explains that the public is not getting the full picture about what’s really going on, adding that “rumors” are rampant – and blatantly untrue. This, by the way, includes settlement “demands” of any kind. Apparently, Kris Humphries wants the whole divorce from Kim Kardashian to play out in court, in full. This very much sounds like Kris and his team (he has a new legal team, by the way) are fully ready to take this thing to court and let the chips fall where they may.
And lots of “chips” are at stake. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries both know it. Now? They’re all lawyered-up and ready, it seems, to battle things out in a court of law, rather than in the tabloids.
This is about to get really, really ugly.
Kim Kardashian is finally responding to a rather insulting comment made about her by Mad Men actor Jon Hamm. Recently, Hamm went off about what he described as an “idiot culture” in the U.S. — and he took aim at Kim K and Paris Hilton for perpetuating the problem. May be due to the sex tape? Hamm didn’t hold back, either, stating in an Elle UK interview that, “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.”
Uh oh. Until now, Kim hasn’t responded. Today, though, she took to her Twitter account, writing a brief statement and possibly escalating a feud with Jon Hamm. Kim wrote:
“I just heard about the comment Jon Hamm made about me in an interview. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another. Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, “stupid,” is in my opinion careless.”
Wow. Anyone else think this is a really, really well-written response? It seems very much like the Kardashian PR machine is at work here. Regardless, though, this is a valid response and she makes a point – Kim Kardashian might be rich because of her family, but she’s staying rich by constantly staying in the headlines. She and her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, manage their own business (the Dash stores) and yes, they’re part of the aforementioned “successful TV show” empire that includes Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Hey, it’s no Mad Men, but it’s just as popular – if not more so.
Is this the end of the Kim Kardashian and Jon Hamm “feud,” or just the beginning? Certainly Kim’s bold, eloquent response is going to generate more attention. Will Jon Hamm respond? Stay tuned!
