Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Kanye West has made some new revelations regarding how he tried to win Kim Kardashian as he said that he bought a phone for the first time to keep his now-wife from marrying Kris Humphries .

In one of the episodes of “Kocktails With Khloe ,” which was cancelled after 14 episodes, West revealed that back in 2011 when Kim was to marry the basketball player, he bought his first ever cell phone specifically to text Kardashian and try to dissuade her from walking down the aisle.

It was a laughing matter for West and Kardashian as well as the other guests on the show, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. The pairs were at a roundtable discussion with the host of the show, Khloe Kardashian . West explained, "I got a phone because somebody decided they wanted to marry Kris Humphries ."

The rapper continued to say, “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. So I started sending her pictures of certain basketball players that used to be cool, that now they wear their pants all the way up to here … Like, 'This is your future!'”

Kim and Humphries were married for 72 days following their August 2011 wedding. Khloe recently said in an interview that she never liked Humphries for her sister and was the least favorite ex.
