Kanye West felt a “magnetic attraction” when he first met his wife Kim Kardashian West.
The couple has been married for five years. The union has produced four young children (North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm). During an interview, the Heartless rapper recalled what it was like when they met each other for the first time over a decade ago.
He said: “Any time I was around her and I saw her, it was magnetic attraction to this force of energy. She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong.”
Kim, 38, and Kanye, 42, met in 2002 when the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was married to her first husband Damon Thomas. Whilst the pair didn’t begin dating until much later, Kim, who was also married to Kris Humphries from 2011 to 2013, insists the rapper was always interested in her.
She said: “I met Kanye in 2002. He would ask everyone who I was, and they always said like ‘Oh, she has a boyfriend’. We just always kept on connecting and coming into each other’s lives. Then, he invited me to Paris to his fashion show, and that’s when it happened. That’s when we started our relationship. And I was like ‘S**t, why didn’t this happen sooner?’ It was just right.”
