Here’s a timeline of Kim and Kanye’s relationship.
The two first met and became friends in 2003, when Kim was working as rapper Brandy’s assistant, and Kanye was recording a song with him. At that time, Kim was married to Damon Thomas.
Fast forward to 2008, and Kanye insisted that Kim appear on his hip-hop puppet show called Alligator Boots. Kanye was adamant that Kim should play Princess Leia in the show, and even though the show never happened, she did play the role.
Then in 2009, Kanye performed a verse on Keri Hilton’s “Knock You Down” and some of the lyrics seemed to be about Kim, who was with NFL stat Reggie Bush at the time.
In 2010, Kanye made an appearance on “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”
In 2011, he tried to convince her not to marry Kris Humphries, but she went ahead with it anyway, but got divorced after 72 days.
In 2012, Kim and Kanye were spotted together for the first time and by December, they were expecting their first baby.
The rest, well you know.
Kanye started campaigning as a candidate for the 2020 presidential elections and showed he was pro-abortion when he discussed a very private matter of when they debated on aborting North, their daughter. This didn’t sit well with Kim. Kim later shared through Instagram that Kanye has bipolar disorder. She also spoke about her failed attempts in getting Kanye help.
