So Amber Rose must have been so correct when she made jabs at Kim Kardashian in her interviews. You guys said she was just hating! I got to admit yall women know when we be out on the prowl! How long yall think this will last?  Reported by my buddies at TMZ , Kanye West have been dating for roughly two weeks, but it’s a relationship 8 years in the making … TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, the two have been friends since 2004 — and have flirted on-and-off — but the timing was never right to pursue a relationship … until now.

We’re told both sides always felt a spark, but they NEVER acted inappropriately while Kanye was with Amber Rose … or while Kim was with Kris Humphries.

In fact, we’re told Kim was recently kicking around the idea of reconciling with Reggie Bush … but after hanging out with him in Miami a few weeks ago, decided the two weren’t compatible anymore.

Kim finally reconnected with Kanye in Paris when she attended his fashion show … and shortly after that, both sides decided to “give dating a shot.”

And so far, we’re told Kim has been super-impressed with the rapper … who pulled one hell of a surprise when they hit up FAO Schwarz in NYC a few days ago.

Sources say Kanye made some calls and had an entire floor of the toy store roped off so they could get a private lesson from a guy who taught them how to play “Chopsticks” on the over-sized piano featured in the movie “Big.”

Kim’s currently back in L.A. … but we’re told she plans to get her ass back to NYC as soon as possible to see him.

Theraflu says its not lending its support to Kanye West’s new single of the same name.

 

A rep for the cold medicine company tells TMZ that they don’t “endorse or approve” of Kanye’s use of their name and image.

Theraflu didn’t say they were planning any legal action, but did add that their product is relied on by “millions of consumers” to treat “cold and flu symptoms.”

 

Theraflu isn’t the only organization that is taking issue with Kanye’s latest track. During the song, the hip-hop star reignites his feud with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals by rapping, quote, “Tell PETA my mink is draggin’ on the floor.” READ MORE
