Her third marriage has evolved into her most successful so far, but before she met Kanye, Kim Kardashian was known for having the record of the world’s shortest marriage.
Now she’s incredibly successful, married to one of the greatest rappers ever, and has a beautiful little girl. And all of this happened because she decided to take the initiative after her marriage to Kris Humphries ended.
She spoke with Access Hollywood, revealing a lot about how her relationship with West started. They knew each other for a while and had a certain attraction, but she got married and Kanye backed away.
After she got divorced, she expected Kanye to call and rekindle things, he didn’t. After waiting for a while, she decided she had to make the call herself.
‘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” she said.
“I think it was six months after I was newly single in like 2012, I was like why not? Like, what am I waiting for?
I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single again. He didn’t, and so I called him and I said, ‘Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and ‘I told you so,’ something?’ And then – he’s always been a good friend to me, like, we’ve always been there for each other – then he invited me to a fashion show of his in Paris and I went, and then the magic happened.”
Kim also talked about how Kanye’s legendary confidence, what most people label his arrogance, inspires her in her life and her profession.
“He’s super confident and I think in my career and in life he’s given me so much confidence. I handle things differently. Like in business, like I go into something where before I might have been a little bit timid and I’m a little bit calmer, and I go in like, ‘No, guys, this is what I want.’”
