Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been in the public eye for quite some time, especially after revealing they have a baby on the way. While the most of us have viewed KimYe from the outside, there are few who can provide us actual insight into their relationship.

However, Brooke Crittendon, an actress who dated West from 2004 to 2006, shared her thoughts with The Sun on West’s relationship with Kim.

“For Kanye, what other person besides Kim Kardashian is there?" she said. “There’s Halle Berry, J.Lo and Beyonce, but they are all taken. She fits into his brand. Part of being untouchable is having what other people want. It’s about saying, ‘Everybody wants her and she wants me.' That makes sense in Kanye’s world."

She adds, "I know he has had a thing with her for a while. I’m sure he watched her [sex] tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there ... Them being together satisfies them for now. Having a baby ticks a box. She wanted kids and it’s his legacy.”

She also comments on ‘Ye’s appreciation for the female form and thinks he is settling down with Kim because of his longtime friends Jay-Z and Beyonce.

He admires Jay-Z and they are very close," she said. "Over the years Jay has been a role model to him. Whether it is starting to be more mature, taking chances with clothes or getting married and starting a family, ultimately he takes those cues from Jay.”
