She’s barely been back on the singles market a minute, but it seems that Kim Kardashian might not be there for very long.
After rumours of a past secret affair between Kim and rapper Drake resurfaced, an insider tells us the star has his sights firmly set on the soon-to-be divorcée.
“Drake could never understand what Kim saw in Kanye – he was saying for years how he wasn’t the right guy for Kim and it would all end in tears,” an insider tells heat.
“He was surprised it took her so long to realise, and started messaging her the moment it became clear that the divorce was inevitable. He’s ready to see her whenever she says the word, basically, and he’s confident that will happen fairly soon. Kim’s wary about getting involved with someone else too fast before the divorce is settled.”

“Kanye’s furious,” we’re told. “Publicly, he’s saying he doesn’t believe that anything happened between Drake and Kim, but there’s still a part of him that worries it could have, and now he wants closure. He needs to know for certain what may have gone down, but it’s a difficult thing for him to confront her over, as they’re trying to be amicable and figure out the final terms of their split.”
