Kanye West, Kim Kardashian Dating: Does Kanye Really Like Kim?

Posted: Updated:

When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stepped out three weeks ago for an epic date and apparent sleepover, their newfound union was met with disbelief -- even though the pair have been "friendly" for years. Immediately, the coupling sparked suspicion of a publicity stunt: "It's just publicity. I'm sure they (the pimp mama) have this all planned out. You can't tell me that she couldn't have slipped out or brought an overnight bag or called in her stylist. It's another shame," HuffPost commenter Dietcokefreak wrote the day the news broke.

Meanwhile, user "isaluna" wrote: "All I can say is Kanye's credibility will be zero if that happens."

Kim, yes, but Kanye? While Kim's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries makes us wary of her intentions, the notion of Kanye pursuing Kim for the sake of buzz left us shaking our heads.

Here, two HuffPost Celebrity editors duke it out over whether West's intentions are pure or both parties are simply courting press in an effort to help push their respective projects. Youyoung Lee argues that Kanye West genuinely adores Kim, while Erin Clements says Kanye is as guilty as Kim of creating a media sensation out of their budding romance.
