Kenya Moore, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" television personality and former Miss USA, is revealing that newly engaged rap mogul Kanye West once pursued her.
Moore, 42, recently opened up about how West, the 36-year-old rap star, expressed his romantic interest for her before he began dating reality television star Kim Kardashian. A few years ago, Moore said West approached her and asked her to listen to some music in an attempt to court her.
"We met in Beverly Hills. He walked over, he was very humble," Moore told Access Hollywood Live. "He spoke to me. He was super nice."
She recalled the friendly exchange that she had with West.
"...Of course, we didn't date, because I was with someone. He was a very charming guy, I can say that. I was very charmed," Moore told Access Hollywood. "It was just friendly, 'Hey, I want you to hear some music.' It was all above board."
These days, West has not shied away from admitting how much Kardashian, 33, has changed his life.
"I have never loved any girl other than my mother as much as I love my girlfriend. And I'm so happy to be with her, for us to live this life together. And with our relationship with God to be able to live forever in heaven together, too," West told San Francisco radio station 106 KMEL recently. "And also to raise a family, a strong family…"
The 36-year-old rap mogul revealed that he believed the pair's affinity for stylish clothing made them influential people in popular culture.
"She's been spending her whole check on clothes since she was 16, just like me. And that's the reason why both of us are the most influential…," West told KMEL. "I think me and my girl are extremely influential greatly due to the paparazzi."
