"Kanye is head over heels in love with Kim, and he has told her he would love to appear on the reality show if she wants him to. Kim is a bit leery of having her man appear on camera because of the whole fiasco with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Kris Humphries, but watch for Kanye to make several appearances on the show towards the end of the season," a source told RadarOnline.
"Viewers won't see him featured in the first part of the season, and it won't be all about Kanye," the source elaborated about West's appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians' seventh season, which will premiere Sunday, May 20 on E!.
It also won't be the first time West has appeared onKeeping Up with the Kardashians, as he and the 31-year-old reality TV star "have been close friends for years" and supported each other's careers for awhile.
"Kim feels extremely comfortable with Kanye because she feels that for the first time she is with a partner that understands what she does for a living and doesn't scrutinize her for being in a reality show... She also doesn't feel like Kanye is using her, like she did with Kris," the source added.
People reported last week Kardashian and the 34-year-old rapper had taken their friendship to the next level and begun dating. They were reportedly spotted together in New York City on a couple occasions in which they caught a movie on Wednesday and enjoyed lunch at the Serafina restaurant on Thursday.
