Kevin Kreider and Kim Lee relationship timeline
Season 1 of the popular show 'Bling Empire' revealed the sparks between Kevin Kreider and Kim Lee as they talked their way through getting into each other's hearts. The two were clearly into each other and the fans were hoping to see more of them just as Season 1 took a wrap. In an interview after Season 1, Kevin and Kim confessed to flirting with each other and making moves but not dating yet. "There's definitely a lot of flirting going on. Kevin's been calling me every single day," Kim confessed to E! News while Kevin responded, "No! You've been calling me every day. She gets so upset if I don't call or text her back right away."
First season started out with Kevin growing a liking for Kelly Mi Li. But things didn't exactly work out well with that as Kelly was in an on-again-off-again relationship with actor Andrew Gray and, despite their ups and downs, it looked like Kelly and Andrew were still going strong at the end of the season. That's when the sparks between Kevin and Kim appeared to have ignited towards the end of the season. In an interview with EW Kevin stated "I really felt a spark at that party with her, and I saw a gentle side there that I never saw before. And we talked a lot afterwards like, "Was that real? Was it not?" I don't know. "Hypothetically, say I made a move, would you have accepted?" "Maybe," she said, so that wasn't very promising."
Kim Lee is aware of Kelly and Kevin's rich history and in an interview she credited the duo's history for why they can't quit each other. Although, there's a good news for all Kevin-Kim fans ot there as Season 2 will show the duo re-kindling the romance between them.
