Escribed in the stars. Over the years, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West went from just friends to something more. Some of Hollywood’s strongest relationships started platonically.
West and Kardashian did not begin dating until 2012, but nearly a decade earlier they first crossed paths. “I met him I think in 2002 or 2003,” said the founder of KKW Beauty during the 2017 10th Anniversary Special Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “With Brandy, he recorded a song, and I was her friend. I vividly remember going out with him, and then they worked together for a video, so I ‘d see him a few times.
He told his family,’ Who is Kim Kardajan? He didn’t know my name.’ The rapper got to know the reality star quickly, leading to a long friendship that saw Kardashian we d to another man. In August 2011, she and Kris Humphries tied the knot, but their short-lived union did not remove their West connection.
“I was thinking[ Kanye and me] just before I got married to Kris Humphries, and I was just going in a different direction,” she said. “To find out what I wanted, I guess I had to go through that. I felt really low and down after my breakup and he said,’ Just come to Paris and see my fashion show.’ He jokes he’s putting on all this fashion show just to get a date with me. And I went and stayed with him, and that’s where we began dating. I swear, I fell madly in love with him from the moment I landed, and I thought,’ Oh, my God, why didn’t I do this sooner? Like, that’s what real life is like— love and fun and real support.
“Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher also had an aha-moment years after they starred together at That’ 70s Show. The star of the ranch and the actress of Bad Moms became friends with advantages until she called it off. “I’ve gone up to him and I’ve been like,’ You know what? I really care about you, and I don’t want to mess up anything, so I’ll just walk away before it gets too much, “she recalled in a 2018 podcast” WTF With Marc Maron. “And he was like,’ Got it.'” But their emotions win out for each other: “He turned up to my house the next day, and he was like,’ Move in with me.'”
