Kim Kardashian, Kanye West dating -- report

kim-k-kanye-gi.jpgLooks like Kanye West's persistence has paid off. Kim Kardashian and West are dating, reports TMZ.

Sources say the budding relationship is "just starting." The couple were photographed together leaving "The Hunger Games" in New York on Wednesday (April 4).

Lyrics from West's just-released song "Theraflu" express that he had feelings for Kardashian while she was still with Kris Humphries. "And I admit I fell in love with Kim ... 'Round the same time she fell in love with him ... That's cool, baby girl, do your thing ... Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team." ( Jay-Z owns the New Jersey Nets, Humphries' team.)

West also mentions ex Amber Rose and her new fiance Wiz Khalifa on the track. Rose had previously blamed Kardashian for her breakup with West.

"She's a homewrecker!" Rose told Star magazine, later apologizing for the comment.
