Relation with Kanye not publicity stunt: Kim Kardashian

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian insists her romance with rapper Kanye West is genuine, despite reports that it is a publicity stunt to boost her career.

"It`s your heart you`re playing with. I couldn`t sacrifice my heart for a publicity stunt," she said.

The 31-year-old was linked to West soon after her 72-day-old marriage with basketball player Kris Humphries ended. It is also said that Kardashian cheated on Humphries with West, reported Aceshowbiz.

"I think we`ve always had an attraction to each other. One day it just happened. It took me by surprise," she added.

The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star says she is at "a really happy, good place" and wants to take things slow.

"I`m not thinking about marriage right now. To have him (Kanye) in my life this way, says a lot about us. I think I needed to go through all my experiences and some that he`s gone through," she added.
