While Kardashian has said that she is unsure of what the future holds
for her romantic life, West has apparently fallen "genuinely head over heels" for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians
"It's not a PR stunt. They're perfect for each other. He thinks she's his Beyoncé!" a source told US Weekly
about the relationship, referring to Watch the Throne
collaborator Jay-Z's wife.
Another insider added that Kardashian has also allowed herself to develop feelings for West as she distances herself from ex-husband
Kris Humphries, saying: "Now that Kim has gotten over the Kris drama... she sees how much Kanye loves her."
West was recently criticised by animal rights group PETA
for the lyrics to his track 'Theraflu'
, which was written about Kardashian.
