Kanye West Was Chasing Kim Kardashian in the Run Up to Her Wedding to Kris Humphries

"I had to go through that to figure out what I wanted."

The dramatic revelations from Keeping Up With the Kardashians 10th Anniversary Special just keep on coming. E! News has now revealed (opens in new tab) that in the exclusive interview, Kim Kardashian tells Ryan Seacrest all about her relationship with Kanye West, and when exactly it began.

In the special, which airs tomorrow at 9pm on E!, Kim reveals that she was talking to Kanye a lot right before her wedding to Kris Humphries (the marriage famously lasted 72 days). Kim tells Seacrest, "Right before I got married to Kris Humphries we were like talking and I just went a different direction. And I think I had to go through that to figure out what I wanted."

Basically, Kim chose Humphries, and went through with the wedding, but Kanye was always there in the background.

Now it's hard to imagine Kim with anyone other than Kanye, and it's clear that the couple always had a strong connection. According to E (opens in new tab)! (opens in new tab), in the anniversary special, Seacrest asks Kim, "So while you were getting married to Kris, he was pursuing you?" and Kim responds, "We were friends and we were talking, yes."

Luckily, this answer isn't enough for Seacrest who interrogates Kim regarding Kanye's intentions, asking her if he was "talking or pursuing?" Kim is apparently embarrassed by this question, and blushing she replies, "I don't really know. I can't remember. Probably all of the above."

Clearly, Kim and Kanye were always meant to be in each other's lives.
