Kim Kardashian was spotted wearing earrings with the initials "K.W." while arriving at LAX airport over the weekend, which has prompted new speculation that her relationship with Kanye West is becoming more serious.
The new couple recently joined Kardashian's family for her parents Bruce and Kris Jenner's wedding anniversary at Spice Market in New York City and the Kardashians reportedly like the "Love Lockdown" rapper, according to Radar Online.
"Kris is thrilled about Kim's new romance with Kanye. She loves that they're together and thinks Kanye is a huge step up for Kim after her marriage to Kris Humphries," a source told Radar.
"Dating Kanye puts Kim in a whole new stratosphere. Kris was just a basketball player making a few million dollars a year, but Kanye is a world-wide multi-millionaire superstar. His money and fame are all going to benefit Kim now and she's going to have all the perks of being his girlfriend, and her mom thinks this is going to be great for her own career," the insider added.
The news follows new reports that the reality TV personality is even considering marriage with the 34-year-old.
"Would she marry him? Absolutely! She wouldn't even think twice," a friend of Kardashian's told Life and Style Magazine.
The 31-year-old was recently photographed leaving West's New York City apartment in the exact same clothing that she had worn during a romantic date to the movies the night before. Still, she remained coy about the status of their relationship when asked.
"The movie was really interesting," a giggling Kardashian said coyly on NBC's "Today" show. "Kanye and I have been friends for years ... you never know what the future holds."
Some fans of West have expressed concern that Kardashian's feelings may not be genuine, with naysayers suggesting that she is only interested in the Grammy award-winning artist because an association with him could revive her image. The reality TV star was heavily criticized after her 72-day marriage and subsequent divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries.
"While they were out in New York, she made Kanye get Beyonce on the phone to try to set up something where Kim and Beyonce would be photographed together. She thinks if she's seen with someone like that everyone will like her again. That's her plan," one insider said.
