The pair have reportedly been longtime friends, and their families have known each other for years. They were both in public relationships in the past but they seemed so in love this past year, that it makes all their former partners feel irrelevant. Kardashian, unlike her famous sisters, is usually pretty private about her love life. This time around, she has been spending so much time with the drummer publicly, showing off major PDA during their countless vacations, and shamelessly posting some adorable moments from their relationship on social media.
