Kim Kardashian West "fell madly in love" with her husband Kanye West after flying out to see him in Paris.

The 36-year-old reality star began dating the Famous rapper after her split from former husband Kris Humphries in 2011, and has said flying to see Kanye - whom she had been friends with since 2002 - in Paris for his Yeezy fashion show helped her realise what "real life" is like, and made her wish she'd have romanced the star "sooner".

Speaking during the Keeping Up with the Kardashians 10th anniversary special episode, Kim - who has five-year-old daughter, North, and 21-month-old son, Saint, with Kanye - said: "After my break-up, I was feeling really low and down and he was like, 'Just come to Paris and see my fashion show'. He jokes that he put on this whole fashion show just to get a date with me.

"I went and I stayed with him and that's where we started dating. I swear from the moment I landed and was there, I fell madly in love with him, and I thought, 'Oh my God, why didn't I do this sooner? This is like what real life is like and love and fun and real support. This is what it is.'"

Taylor Swift's alleged stalker was deemed too mentally unfit to stand for trial.

Mohammed Jaffar who was arrested on March 6 for stalking and burglary after having allegedly followed the Bad Blood hitmaker for months appeared at Manhattan Supreme Court briefly last Monday, before being ordered by doctors to be sent to a psychiatric facility, TMZ reports.

Prosecutors complied with the request, and Justice Laura Ward had him taken away to seek treatment until he's well enough to return to court.

In June, it was revealed that the obsessed fan spent four hours loitering on the singer's building's roof.

Jaffar attended an arraignment hearing, and the court was told his obsessive behaviour escalated in February, when he was seen going to Taylor's apartment building in Tribeca, New York.

At the time, prosecutor Caitlyn Jaile told Justice Laura Ward: "The defendant was observed via video surveillance inside [Swift's] apartment building attempting to enter the actual apartment ... spending approximately four hours outside of the apartment and on the roof deck."
