On Wednesday, Kanye West unexpectedly released a brand-new song online, "Theraflu,"and in between the 34-year-old rapper's typically over-the-top boasts and X-rated tangents, he made a surprising confession about his pal Kim Kardashian.
Looking back on his romance with ex Amber Rose, who is now engaged to Wiz Khalifa, West rapped, "Only n---- I got respect for is Wiz, And I admit I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him."
West then went on to make a catty reference to Kardashian's future ex-husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, who just happens to play for the New Jersey Nets, which is owned by West's good friend Jay-Z. "Well that's cool, baby girl, do your thing, lucky I ain't have Jay drop him from the team," he rapped, implying he could get Humphries, 27, fired from the team.
Although they've never commented on a romance, West and Kardashian, 31, have been friends for years, and the "Otis" rapper filmed a cameo on "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" in summer 2010. They were spotted hanging out together during Paris Fashion Week earlier this year.
