Kanye West Reveals He Got His First Phone to Steal Kim Kardashian Away From Then-Husband Kris Humphries

Text now, or forever hold your peace! In Kocktails With Khloé's series finale on Wednesday, April 20, Kanye West reveals that Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries was the reason he got his first cell phone.

In the FYI talk show's preview clip, the rapper, 38, explains to host Khloé Kardashian that he knew he needed a way to get in Kim's head after her August 2011 wedding to the NBA player, 31.

"I wasn't up to anything, and I looked on the Internet, and there was Kim Kardashian with some extremely tall person, and I was like, 'I need to call her or something,'" West says.

Kim, 35, famously filed for divorce from Humphries in October 2011, just 72 days after their nuptials. She started dating the "Jesus Walks" music star in April 2012, and the two tied the knot in Italy in May 2014.
