Kim Kardashian Addresses Kanye West Dating Rumors, Divorce on “Today”
(NEW YORK) — Kim Kardashian had the Internet buzzing last week when rumors swirled that the still-married reality star was dating Kanye West. And West, known for stirring up controversy, didn’t help the chatter when he released a song titled “Theraflu,” in which he admitted that he “fell in love with Kim.”
Kardashian sat down Friday with Today’s Ann Curry to address the rumors, dish the latest on her impending divorce to NBA player Kris Humphries and describe how she felt when she was flour bombed by a purported PETA activist for wearing fur.
“Kanye and I have been friends for years,” Kardashian admitted. “You know, you never know what the future holds or where my life will take me. So…I like the song!”
The song, which debuted last Wednesday night and is part of West’s upcoming solo album, also makes reference to Kardashian’s estranged husband. West raps: “Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team,” referring to friend Jay-Z, who is part-owner of the New Jersey Nets, Humphries’ team.
Kardashian also explained why she refuses to grant her husband an annulment, which he pursued because he claims the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star defrauded him.
Kardashian explained, “I’m sure I would love one myself, but you know, there’s certain guidelines on how you can get one and I’m not sure that we fall under that.”
If her relationship troubles weren’t enough, Kardashian also addressed being flour bombed by a woman named Christina Cho, a purported active member of PETA, last month while promoting her new perfume.
“It’s just a little odd to me that their whole message is non-violence towards animals, yet they are being violent towards humans. I don’t think that assaulting someone is appropriate at all,” Kardashian said.
A new season of Keeping up with the Kardashians premieres on May 20 at 9 p.m. ET on E!
