When did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West meet?
According to Kim, 40, the pair met around 2002-2003.
“He was recording a song with Brandy, and I was her friend,” Kim told Ryan Seacrest during the Keeping Up With the Kardashians 10th anniversary special.
“I vividly remember hanging out with him and then they did a video together, so I’d see him a few times. He was asking his friends: ‘Who is this Kim Kardajan?’ He didn’t know what my name was.”
Kanye was spotted at Kim’s 30th birthday bash in New York, according to Just Jared.
It was later revealed that Kanye’s song Lost In The World was inspired by the rapper’s birthday card to Kim.
“For those that don’t know the story of ‘Lost In The World’ on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy…Kanye couldn’t come up with some lyrics and then realized he had them, it was what he wrote me for my 30th birthday card,” the 40-year-old revealed on her Instagram story.

A year later, the reality TV star delved into the world of music, releasing a song titled, Jam (Turn it up)... Paul McCartney, take notes x.
So how does Kanye fit into this? Well, he reportedly helped direct the tune’s music video. And thus, their professional relationship began.
Romantic Kimye became official in June of this year. Kim confirmed she and Kanye were dating via a tweet about his song with Jay Z, No Church in the Wild.
“#NoChurchInTheWild… Proud girlfriend tweet,” the reality star wrote.
Later this year, Kanye was performing in New Jersey when he told the audience that he and Kim were expecting a baby together.
The musician implored the crowd to “make some noise for my baby mama right there”. He then serenaded Kim and said, “now you having my baby”.
So, a super lowkey announcement.
Kimye's first child, North-West, was born on June 15th. She arrived a month after the couple made their iconic Met Gala debut.
Four months later, Kanye proposed to Kim in a baseball park (Oracle) in San Francisco. Not only did the musician rent out the whole thing (must be nice), he splurged on a 13-carat ring, a 50-piece orchestra and a message on the scoreboard that read: “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”.
Again, super lowkey on his behalf.
Kimye tied the knot in Florence, Italy, on May 24th, officially making the reality star... Kim Kardashian-West.
North gets a sibling! News that Kimye was welcoming their second child was revealed via an episode of KUWTK. The couple welcomed their first son, Saint, on December 5th.
Three years later, Kimye's second daughter, Chicago, was born via gestational carrier on January 15th.
Annnnd one more. Kimye welcomed a son, Psalm, also via gestational carrier, on May 9th.
Five months later, the couple decided to renew their vows.
Ahh yes, let’s not forget Kanye 2020 happened. The musician deciding to run for President honestly feels like a fever dream at this point… but it actually happened.
Spoiler Alert! 🚨He lost.
During his first rally in South Carolina, the now-44-year-old caused quite the stir when he revealed that he and Kim almost decided to abort their first daughter, North.
The next day, Kanye tweeted that his wife and her mum Kris were attempting to “lock (him) up” with a doctor.
"Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday."
The year started off badly with US Weekly claiming in January that Kim was “done” with her marriage to Kanye.
“They have both been living separate lives for many months now,” a source told the publication. “Kim and Kanye haven’t been on the same page for a while now.”
Reportedly, Kim officially filed for divorce in February. Six months later and the exes sparked reconciliation rumours after Kim appeared at Kanye’s listening party in Chicago.
After dropping his latest album Donda, Kim rocked up to the party donning a Balenciaga wedding gown and veil to recreate their wedding.
"Kim supports Kanye and was happy to be on stage in a wedding dress," a source told Us about the reality star's appearance. "She has always respected his art and ideas and was all in for the performance."
