Kanye West loved socialite Kim Kardashian before he even met her. The famed music producer says he had a "magnetic attraction" to Kim when the couple first met 10 years before they started dating.
In a new episode of the docuseries E! True Hollywood Story, airing on Sunday, Oct. 13, Kanye recalled the early days of their romance. The 42-year-old rapper gushed about the strong chemical attraction he felt for his "loving" and "courageous" future wife.
"Every time I was around her or I saw her, it was a magnetic attraction to this force of energy," West says in a clip from the segment. "She was good, pure, happy, loving, brave, courageous, strong."
The animal attraction wasn't as strong for Kim. The 38-year-old Libra reveals that her path kept crossing the rapper's before she deemed him worthy of dating in 2012.
"We just always kept connecting and coming into each other's lives," she adds. "And, then he invited me to Paris to his fashion show and that's when it happened. That's when we started our relationship. "I was like, 'S--t! Why didn't this happen sooner?' It was just right."
The couple tied the knot on May 24, 2014. They share four children - two by IVF and a surrogate. The brunette beauty recalls Kanye was initially discouraged from being associated with her.
"Everyone would tell him, 'You can't be with her. She's a reality star. She's gonna sink your career'," she recalls. "And, he was just like, 'But I love her. I don't care'."
