We’re not mean and heartless, we swear. We used to believe in pure, innocent, stupidly passionate love. But then Kim Kardashian came along and ruined everything with her questionable dalliance with Kris Humphries. So when we heard that the reality star was hooking up with rapper Kanye West, we put our guard up. But now that the pair are reportedly putting marriage on the table, we’re going on an all-out defensive. Despite just going public one month ago, US Weekly is reporting that the two are seriously considering tying the knot. A source says that their partnership is “very serious,” and that they go to great lengths to be together…or at least be seen together. Kim’s even rumored to accompany Yeezy on his summer tour with Jay-Z. “She wants to be with him as much as possible,” the source explains. “They really know and love each other.”
Yes, the man who brought us “Gold Digger” is considering marrying the woman who less than a year before pulled off one of the most lucrative PR/wedding stunts in history. We’re not going to lie: our first reaction is to tell Kanye to run for his damn life. But perhaps they aren’t so bad together after all. She definitely doesn’t need his money. And at this point she doesn’t need the fame she’d get by hanging out with him. She’s pretty stable on her own. In fact, it could be argued that the couple are pretty evenly matched. The question is; does greed for more dictate Kim’s desire to be with Kanye, or is it actually love? Our cynicism makes us believe the latter, but we’re totally ready to be proved wrong.
