Kim Kardashian Pursued Kanye West Relationship After Split From Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian isn't afraid to go after what she wants — and that includes now-husband

Kanye West. The rapper, 37, had a thing for the reality star long before they ever got together, but as she revealed to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush this week, she actually made the first move after her split from ex-husband

Kris Humphries.

"I was always attracted to him," Kardashian, 34, admitted. "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, and that was that."

They "stayed in touch," she said, but their timing was always just a little bit off. "And then, I think it was six months after I was newly single in 2012, I was like, 'Why not? Like, what am I waiting for?'" she recalled.

She thought West might contact her after her split from Humphries, but when he didn't, she reached out to him.

"I called him because I'm sure it was really hurtful that I got married," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told Bush. "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. And he didn't. And so I called him and I said, 'Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and say 'I told you so,' something.'"

After that initial contact, West invited her to a fashion show in Paris, which is where "the magic happened," she teased.

Initially, she admitted, she had doubts about the relationship. But those quickly faded. "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. 

Now married with a daughter, 23-month-old North, the lovebirds are totally in sync. Kardashian adores everything about her hubby — even his infamous rants about art and creation and fame.

"I completely do understand when he's talking about something that he's really passionate about, because it's not like he just goes on a tangent talking about it — it's stuff that we've talked about at home and in conversations with our friends and hanging out for so long, that I completely know what he's talking about," she told Bush, adding that she loves his unfiltered moments.

That said, she knows how to calm him down if he gets too riled up. "There's times when we're together when we both say, 'Okay, we kind of need to have a signal for each other...when to just cool it a little bit,'" she shared. "But, you know, that's who he is. He loves to express himself, and he's always been like that."
