Kim Kardashian is convinced her relationship with Kanye West will stand the test of time because they built a strong friendship before becoming romantically involved.
The socialite went public with her new love earlier this year (12) following her split from sportsman husband Kris Humphries shortly after their wedding last summer (11).
Kardashian has been friends with the rapper for several years, and she believes their strong connection provides a solid base for romance.
She tells Britain's InStyle magazine, "We know what we are to each other. We've had a deep friendship for so long and that's the start of a really good relationship."
Kardashian also dismisses rumours West has been writing about their romance in his songs, adding, "People can interpret it however they want. That's him making music. I don't even know it's about me."
