Rapper Kanye West's busy schedule kept him from romancing socialite Kim Kardashian, according to the reality TV star's sister Khloe.
The true nature of West's friendship with Kardashian has been swirling around the gossip blogs for years, and West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose recently claimed the relationship was a factor in their 2010 split.
Now Khloe Kardashian has shed some more light on the gossip and she insists Kim is not romantically involved with West, but they almost become a couple at one point.
During an appearance on DJ Sway's Shade 45 radio show last week, she said, "They were talking and trying to go on a date here and there, but it just didn't work out."

And Khloe isn't ruling out a romance in their future, because she is convinced they would be well suited.
She added, "I know they hung out, but I know it's never gotten to there (turned romantic) ... I genuinely think that because we have so much in common -- like our families, losing parents and we do have a lot of connections -- I think that if they were to go there, it would be a long relationship."
Twice-wed Kim is currently in the midst of a divorce after splitting from basketball player Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage.
