Rumor has it that the E! star and her rapper beau are so serious that they've already moved into the cohabitation stage of their relationship, with Life & Style and TMZ claiming that the couple are planning to live together in a Los Angeles home.
It may seem a bit premature, but the duo have long been friends. And Kim is no stranger to speedy courtships. But is it true? Are Kimye really ready to play house? This rumor is...
Despite Life & Style breathlessly claiming that Kim has quietly put her L.A. home on the market in preparation for the alleged move and TMZ's adamance that the duo is looking for a rental pad to share, a source close to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star tells E! News that the report is completely untrue.
What it is, in fact, is simply a coincidence.
True, Kim has indeed quietly put her house on the market for $5 million. And as it happens, Kanye has also pocket-listed his L.A. home. But despite the eyebrow-raising timing of the joint sales, sources confirm to E! News that this is not a coordinated effort on their part to move in together.
Still, Kim and Kanye are as strong as ever in the wake their globe-trotting, Cannes-do European tour earlier this month, and while it's possible at some point down the road the duo may share an address, sources say that to speculate it happening anytime in the immediate future would be "very premature."
So why give up her lush pad? Simple: Kim is moving on up. Sources say the TV star has merely outgrown her current home and also had security concerns about the property, as it was not in a gated community.
"She needs more privacy," a source said.
Hard to argue with that one.
