Kim met Kanye in 2003 while he was working as an assistant to R&B star, Brandy – the sister of Kim’s infamous sex tape partner, Ray J. In an interview later on, Kim shared “He [Kanye] was recording a song with Brandy, and I was her friend. I vividly remember hanging out with him, and then we did a video together so I’d see him a few times.” Both Kim and Kanye admitted to him not knowing her name at first. The rapper thought that it was Kim Kardijon. However, one thing he did know was that he wanted her to be his girl.
