Although [article id="1682623"]Kim Kardashian has continued to play coy[/article] when questioned about her rumored romance with Kanye West, new photos of the two add to the growing evidence that they're in a budding relationship.
Kim and Kanye were spotted strolling through New York City over the weekend while Kardashian enjoyed an ice cream cone and sported [article id="1683636"]earrings bearing West's initials, "KW."[/article] The couple attended dinner at Spice Market with other members of the Kardashian clan following that outing, and on Monday night, they were photographed again, holding hands while making the rounds in NYC.
First, they attended a dinner thrown by luxury brand Audemars Piguet at Catch in New York's Meatpacking District, where they hung out with Kardashian's pal La La, her husband Carmelo Anthony and producer Swizz Beatz.
Next, they headed out to the opening of Scott Disick's new Japanese restaurant Ryu, where they met up with Kourtney Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Lamar Odom and Rob Kardashian. According to New York's Daily News, West kept his arm wrapped around Kim in the back of the restaurant during the festivities, while cameras filmed segments for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." Later, they were spotted holding hands as they exited the party.
Kardashian tweeted about the opening, writing, "So much fun at Scott's restaurant opening of RYU last night! CONGRATS @ScottDisick We love you! Food was delish!" but she mentioned nothing about the rumors that have continued to swirl about her and Kanye West.
During a Sunday appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," Khloé addressed her sister's status with Kanye. "I don't think it's serious. I think it's too soon," she said. "Because they're friends for so long, it's so easy. That's something that I love seeing about Kim, the easiness and how happy she is. It's just more of a great friendship and friendships make the best relationships."
Khloé also commented on rumors that Kanye would appear on the upcoming season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," which premieres May 20. "No one has to be on camera. It's not like we're driven to slavery," Khloé said. "Everyone has the option, except for us."
