Some people might be surprised to learn that Kim Kardashian and West first met in 2003. At the time, Kim Kardashian was working as Brandy’s assistant.

As Insider shared, West instantly became infatuated with her. In 2008 the popular musician asked Kim Kardashian to be in one of his music videos, and soon after, West started to frequently visit the reality television star. Fortunately for West, in 2012, Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries ended after just 72 days.

The pair finally was able to have a window of opportunity to pursue their connection to one another. Later that year their relationship became official, and in May 2014 West and Kim Kardashian got married.
