The rapper and the reality TV star have been spotted together during a flurry of intimate meetings in New York this week.
Things kicked off with a cinema date on Wednesday evening, followed by a lunch at eatery Serafina the next day.
And Kim – who was far from her normal residence of Los Angeles – appeared to have enjoyed Kanye's hospitality in between their rendezvous.
She was pictured leaving the rapper's flat on Thursday morning.
The Stronger hitmaker has also released some new music which suggests his relationship with the striking brunette is not just platonic.
In Theraflu Kanye name checks the curvy beauty, saying: "I admit I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him," perhaps a reference to the beginning of her relationship to Kris.
Despite mounting speculation about her love life, the lady herself insists she is happily single.
"I’m not even close to dating again!" she recently declared to Cosmopolitan.
