Following her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, Kardashian began dating West in 2012 — while still fighting to legally end her prior union. "They have been close friends for years and decided to give it a try [with dating]," a source close to the couple revealed at the time.

Unsurprisingly, the rapper made his feelings for Kardashian known. In his song "Theraflu," West sings, "I admit I fell in love with Kim … 'Round the same time she fell in love with him … That's cool, babygirl, do your thing … Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team." (West was referring to his pal JAY-Z who then owned the New Jersey Nets, the team Humphries played for at the time.)

Four months after welcoming daughter North, Kardashian and West marked yet another relationship milestone: getting engaged on Kardashian's 33rd birthday.

The rapper planned an elaborate proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park (which he rented out for the occasion), where the pair were joined by close friends and family. For the big moment, West hired an orchestra to play for Kardashian, while a large screen flashed the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!!" before he presented the star with a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond.

May 24, 2014: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West get married


After a weeklong Parisian celebration, the reality maven and rapper not-so-quietly tied the knot in 2014 at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. The couple chose the Italian city for a very personal reason: they conceived North there.

"It was funny how nervous he was," an onlooker told PEOPLE of West. "He clearly knew the gravity of what he was about to do. This morning he was all smiles, but as it got closer, you could see that the nerves were kicking in. It's common for most grooms. I've seen it all before."

The reality star doesn't keep anything from fans — and her fertility struggles were no exception, as she opened up to C Magazine about her first pregnancy. "I had so many complications. I had this condition called placenta accreta," she said. "There were a couple little operations to fix all that, so that created a little hole in my uterus."

After endless months of hoping for baby No. 2 and two years after welcoming daughter North, the couple were finally blessed with their second child, a son named Saint — but not before the reality star underwent a less-than-stellar pregnancy.

"I just don't think pregnancy and me really agree with each other," she revealed to E! Online. "You know it was really hard for me to get pregnant so I do feel really blessed that I am pregnant and at the end of the day it is a million times worth it … I'm really not complaining, I'm just being honest and being honest about, I hate it you know pregnancy is not for me."

On Jan. 27, 2016, West went on one of his infamous Twitter rants — this time getting into spats with Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, mentioning the pair's child, Sebastian. (West eventually apologized for the back-and-forth.)

Though Kardashian generally keeps a level head about most of her husband's eccentric behavior, the following month a source told PEOPLE: "What causes friction in the marriage, however, is Kanye's compulsive tweeting. Kim can't stand it. She is all for self-promotion, but doesn't approve of Twitter drama."

March 28, 2016: Kanye West releases the song "Famous" and reignites feud with Taylor Swift

Kevin Mazur/WireImage

West released a single from his album The Life of Pablo entitled "Famous" on March 28, 2016 — to the dismay of Taylor Swift. Why? The tune featured controversial lyrics ("I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous") that took aim at the pop star.

Though West claimed that he had called Swift to ask for her blessing, he was never heard running the specific lyrics calling her "that bitch" by the singer. "[She] cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message," a spokesperson for the star told PEOPLE. "Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.' "

After an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in which Swift's feud with West took center stage aired, Kardashian shared a series of videos on her Snapchat account of a phone call between West and Swift discussing the rapper's lyrics about the singer. "It's like a compliment," Swift is heard saying in the video after West reads the lyrics, "For all my Southside n—– that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," to her. "I never would've expected you to like tell me about a line in your song," Swift responded on the call. "I mean, I don't think anybody would listen to that and be like, 'Oh, that's a real diss.' You gotta tell the story that way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it."

West never ran the lyrics "I made that bitch famous" by the star, however, and Swift responded to the videos with a post on Instagram.

"Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened. You don't get to control someone's emotional response to being called 'that bitch' in front of the entire world," she wrote in a note.

On Oct. 2, 2016, Kardashian was the victim of a terrifying armed robbery while in her hotel room in Paris, tied up and held at gunpoint while thieves took millions of dollars in jewels. The incident, which prompted her rapper-husband to abruptly end his New York City show, caused the public star to suddenly lead a much more private life.

A source told PEOPLE that Kardashian was "hysterical" when she called West after the robbery, saying, "He said she was really upset and it took him a few seconds to understand what she was saying to him. He wanted to get to her as soon as he could. He told her that he couldn't care less about the jewelry; he's just thankful that she's okay."

In a string of erratic events in the weeks following the Paris robbery, West cut several concerts short after arriving to the stage behind schedule, and went on rants about JAY-Z and Beyoncé. The behavior was said to be related to the unexpected death of his mother Donda in 2007 and his wife's traumatic experience in Paris, according to reports.

"Kim has had a very rough time since the robbery," said a source close to the reality star. "It hasn't helped that Kanye has been touring. Their lives have been quite chaotic. It's been very trying for them both and not a good recipe for a happy marriage."

In radio dispatch traffic from the Los Angeles Fire Department obtained by TMZ, emergency crews were heard describing the incident as a "psychiatric emergency." Despite reports claiming that the rapper was committed against his will, a source told PEOPLE: "There was a small altercation at the gym but he was deemed medically stable and decided to seek medical help at his doctor's request." The source added, "We're super confident he's going to pull through."

"I think you can get in control of your schedule and you've just got to sit back and analyze, like, what are your distractions?" responded West. "Once you manage your time, you'll be able to manage your time to be able to give attention to me, attention to the kids and attention to law that you're passionate about."

Reflecting on her husband's pep talk, Kim added that he has "always been someone in my life who has always pushed me to do what I want to do, no matter what the rules are, no matter what people say."

July 2020 saw West make a series of allegations on Twitter that Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner had tried to "lock him up," and claimed that he had been considering divorcing his wife. A source told PEOPLE at the time that his tweets were coinciding with a new cycle in the rapper's bipolar disorder.

Kardashian, who rarely has addressed West's behavior in the past, spoke out on her Instagram Story, asking fans for "compassion."

"As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder," she began. "Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand. I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health," she wrote. She added that "those who are close to Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times [sic] do not align with his intentions."
