Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: It seems as if they’ve been together forever and for not long at all, especially amid the divorce drama with Kardashian and her ex, Kris Humphries. Their so-far relatively short courtship is actually a rather extended one, at least for the Kardashians, given Kardashian’s previous quick-to-the-wedding altar relationship Humphries, not to mention Khloe Kardashian Odom’s quickie meet and greet and marry with her husband, Lamar Odom. That aside, Kardashian and West have packed a lot of together time into the past few months–from date nights in New York City to London appearances, the Cannes Film Festival, a Lamborghini birthday present, last Sunday’s BET Awards, and the list goes on.
Now as Kimye is in the City of Light for Paris Fashion Week, the August 2012 issues of In Style UK has hit news stands with Kim Kardashian on the cover. While the magazine’s premise may be all about fashion, Kardashian’s interview also covered why love is always fashionable in her book and why the Kanye West fling is working so well–so far, that is.
“I’ve always believed in love,” Kardashian told the publication, a statement which probably won’t be a shock to followers of the Keeping up with the Kardashians star.
She did candidly admit: “I haven’t always been so lucky, but I still do believe in it… I loved this person, it just wasn’t the right situation for me. I try to hold my head up high and live my life.” Here, she is obviously alluding to her failed relationship with Humphries, and at the same time, quietly refuting that she did it for fame or money. Love was the reason… obviously, it just didn’t last.
As The Hollywood Gossip reports, Kim Kardashian also commented about her romance with Kanye West, who really couldn’t be more different from Kris Humphries. “We’ve had a deep friendship for so long and that’s the start of a really good relationship.”
As for that fast track to love, marriage and a baby in the baby carriage, Kardashian may be putting on the brakes. She said her second marriage (and subsequent divorce) taught her to “take things slow.” Maybe this time, slow and steady will win the race–and the game of love!
