Kim Kardashian may be rebounding from soon-to-be ex-husband, Kris Humphries, with Kanye West, according to TMZ. The pair was spotted in New York City Wednesday night, leaving a showing of "The Hunger Games." But does their movie date mean that Kardashian is West's new girl on fire?
Kardashian was spotted by Pacific Coast News photographers leaving West's apartment Thursday morning wearing the same black leather pants and white and gray sleeveless T-shirt she was sporting the previous evening. Reality TV's reigning queen was reportedly flanked by West's security guards before hopping into the rapper's Mercedes to be driven back to her hotel.
Sources tell TMZ that the duo's relationship is "just starting" but according to the lyrics of West's newest song, "Theraflu," the rapper's feelings for the reality star have been in the making for quite some time.
"And I admit I fell in love with Kim
'Round the same time she fell in love with him
Well that's cool, babygirl do your thing
Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team"
But this isn't the first time that rumors of a romance between the longtime friends have circulated the blogosphere. In March, when asked if she was in a relationship with West after attending his Paris Fashion Week runway show, Kardashian explained that following her divorce, she was not ready to jump into a relationship with anyone.
“I’m really not dating right now at all," Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest. "I’m really just focusing on work. I know I always say this, but I’m trying to just get through my situation and just have fun.”
According to Kardashian, the only new relationship she was diving into was one with her gym. The raven-haired beauty told Us Weekly that her single status was driving her to kick up her workout regimen a notch: "I figure, I'm single. Now is the best time to get in shape."
But Kardashian isn't the only one who's turning heads with her fit figure. Humphries recently stripped down to his skivvies in a photo shoot for WestEast magazine -- with some speculating that he accepted the racy gig in order to get back at Kardashian.
It's clear, following Kardashian and Humphries' media documented divorce battle, that reconciliation is not on the horizon for the ex-couple. But the dissolution of her second marriage doesn't mean Kardashian is closed off to new love -- perhaps West could be lucky number three?
"I think you have different soul mates throughout your life; that your soul needs different things at different times," Kardashian recently told Cosmopolitan UK. "I'm sure my soul will meet a mate one day in the future. I do believe in love, I will always believe in love, but my idea has changed from what I’ve always thought…I just don’t believe in one soul mate now.”
We don't doubt that Kardashian will find her happily ever after. But, for now, help us come up with a potential "couple name" for Kim and Kanye. Ki-West? Kimye? Leave your suggestion in the comments!
