Los Angeles - Kanye West was "dying to kiss" Kim Kardashian at a party on Tuesday.
The pair both attended billionaire Ron Buckle's after-party for Kanye and Jay-Z 's Watch the Throne concert in Los Angeles, and the 34-year-old singer was said to be "all over" Kim, who only split up from her husband of 72 days Kris Humphries at the end of October.
A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Kanye was eating Kim up like she was a piece of cake. He was all over her, caressing her head, touching her waist.
"I think he was dying to kiss her, but there were too many people in the room."
Kim was joined by her sister Khloe and mother Kris Jenner at the concert before the party, while Jay-Z's pregnant wife Beyonce Knowles sat nearby in the VIP section behind centre stage.
Meanwhile, Kim is believed to have paid $65 000 at the auction of the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor's jewellery collection to secure three jade and diamond bracelets.
The Lorraine Schwartz bangles are not yet in possession of Kim, but she is expected to get them in the next couple of days.
The socialite was the last person to interview Elizabeth before her death from congestive heart failure earlier this year.
