Kim Kardashian West admits husband Kanye West was warned that dating her would “sink” his career.
The rapper defied his advisers when he struck up a romance with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star in 2012 after they told him being associated with a reality star would negatively affect his image.
Speaking in a preview of forthcoming documentary True Hollywood Story, which analyses Kim’s rise to fame, she said: ‘I mean, everyone would tell him “You can’t be with her, she’s a reality star. She’s going to sink your career!”
And he was just like “But I love her. Like, I don’t care.”‘
The couple – who raise children North, six, Saint, three, Chicago, 20 months, and Psalm, four months, together – first met in 2002 when Kim was married to Damon Thomas.
But it would be a further ten years before they embarked on a relationship, with the couple exchanging vows in front of close friends and family members at Forte Belvedere in Florence, Italy in 2014.
Despite the wait, Kim claims he was always attracted to her, and when they did finally get together she couldn’t believe they hadn’t hooked up before because it felt so “right”.
‘I met Kanye in 2002,’ she explained. ‘He would ask everyone who I was, and they always said like “Oh, she has a boyfriend.”
‘We just always kept on connecting and coming into each other’s lives. Then, he invited me to Paris to his fashion show, and that’s when it happened.
‘That’s when we started our relationship. And I was like “S**t, why didn’t this happen sooner?” It was just right.’
The 42-year-old rapper recalled his “magnetic attraction” to Kim and hailed the “pure” star a “force of energy”.
He revealed in the preview: ‘Any time I was around her and I saw her, it was magnetic attraction to this force of energy. She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong.’
As well as Kanye, the likes of 38-year-old Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have also given interviews ahead of Sunday’s show, as well as her best friend Jonathan Cheban.
