Kanye West meets Kim Kardashian’s family

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stepped up their relationship status this weekend, with the rapper being introduced to Kim’s family. The two stars have been flaunting their romance around New York, with Kanye taking his ‘girlfriend’ to one of the city’s hottest restaurants.

The lovebirds caused a major stir as they emerged from Spice Market, a trendy Asian Fusion spot in the city’s Meatpacking District.

The couple, which is now known as Kimye to their fans, was spotted arriving at the restaurant and later leaving with several members of the Kardashian clan.

Kim donned the same black leather trousers she was pictured wearing earlier in the day when she joined Kanye on an ice cream run.

But for her evening look, she paired the trousers with a fringed white blouse and black jacket.

Hours earlier, Kardashian and Kanye ate up every second of attention they received while strolling around New York.

The love birds laughed and smiled as a crush of cameras and fans trailed them around the city.

And no wonder they’re smiling as it was revealed Kim introduced her new man to her family on the very same day, a sure sign things are getting serious.

And according to TMZ, the Kardashian crew ‘absolutely loved him’.

A source said: ‘Kanye and Kim were excited for the family gathering and the opportunity to show them just how great they are together.

‘The meeting went great and the family thinks they make the perfect couple.’

According to Radaronline.com the rapper might even appear on the new series of Kim’s reality show.

A source recently told the website: ‘Kanye is head over heels in love with Kim, and he has told her he would love to appear on the reality show if she wants him to.

‘Kim is a bit leery of having her man appear on camera because of the whole fiasco with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Kris Humphries, but watch for Kanye to make several appearances on the show towards the end of the season.’

However the Huffington Post has reported that all 18 episodes of the new show have already been filmed and were shot before Kim and Kanye officially got together.

The rapper is no stranger to reality TV and was seen on camera with Kim in the first season of Kourtney and Kim take New York shot in 2010.

Rumours about Kim and Kanye have been swirling for some time now.

Reports of them getting together began even before she started dating and eventually married NBA player Kris Humphries.
Kardashian recently addressed the relationship on the Today show, but refused to confirm that she is dating West.
“I haven’t looked on the Internet in a while; it’s a new rule in life,” she said.

“I completely respect and understand you have to ask these questions, but I said before, Kanye and I have been friends for years, and you never know what the future holds,” Kardashian continued.
