It may seem like you were born knowing the term “Kimye,” but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have only been an official couple for about five years.
The pair, who started off as good friends, have certainly made it an eventful time though, so you’d be forgiven for forgetting a few things along the way.
We’ve rounded up the most crazy, heartbreaking, and touching moments from their time together.
2003-2006: Kanye and Kim met, and Kanye was smitten.
The pair met and became friends in 2003, but Kim was dating rapper Ray-J at the time.
It started out pretty platonic, but Kanye later revealed it was when he saw a picture of Kardashian with her friend Paris Hilton that he knew he loved her.
“I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time,” he told Ryan Seacrest in 2013. “I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?'”
2008: Kanye featured Kim as Princess Leia in a comedy show.
Later, West recruited Kardashian for a hip-hop puppet show called “Alligator Boots.”
Though the show never took off, you can see the future Mr. and Mrs. West playing a stormtrooper and Princess Leia in her slave outfit here. It’s clear that they had chemistry from the start.
2009: Kanye did his first verse about Kim.
Kanye performed a verse on Keri Hilson’s single “Knock You Down” with the lines “You were always the cheerleader of my dreams / Seem to only date the head of football teams / And I was the class clown that always kept you laughing / We were never meant to be, baby we just happened.”
“You should leave your boyfriend now.”
TMZ asserted that the verse was about Kim, and seeing as Kim was dating football player Reggie Bush at the time, it’s not too hard to believe.
