Are rapper Kanye West and reality star Kim Kardashian really an item? The pair has been spotted together several times in the last week, from dinner in Chicago with some friends, to a yachting trip celebrating Kim’s 30th birthday with friends and family in New York. Is love really in the air or are these two spotlight-loving singles just trying to get into the limelight yet again.
According to Kim’s publicist, “Kim is just friends with West, and has been forever.” Perhaps, but are they friends with benefits? I do seem to remember a few rumors suggesting that one of the reasons why Kim split with ex Reggie Bush was because of some racy text messages from Kanye. She claims that it was all “bull****” but new sightings of the pair are suggesting the opposite.
In Chicago, Kardashian showed up at the premier of West’s new film Runway, and afterwards joined him at Bijan´s Bistro with some friends for a private dinner. Onlookers are claiming that Kanye and Kim were getting pretty cozy at the table. In fact, “Kanye had his arm around her all evening! He was rubbing her knee all night – they definitely looked like a couple,” says a source.
But then again another source close to Kim is claiming that, “She [Kim] thinks Kanye is a really cool guy, but they’re friends and only friends.” Kim has also been linked to John Mayer recently so this could all just be about her living up her “Flirty 30” years of age as she calls it.
Whatever Kim, just don’t make it the ‘Dirty 30.”
