Kanye West says Kim Kardashian gave him ''everything.''

The 36-year-old rapper - who had three-month-old daughter North with his famous girlfriend - is delighted with the way their relationship has panned out and credits the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star for her support.

Speaking during an interview with UK station BBC Radio One, he said: ''Family time is what Kim gave me. She gave me everything. She gave me a family, she gave me a support system.''

Kim was catapulted to the spotlight on her family reality TV show which captures the glamorous lifestyle of the Kardashian-Jenner family and since then she has managed to secure a fortune through magazine deals, photoshoots and other means, with the help of her mum and manager Kris Jenner.

In addition, she has a clothing line which she started with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe.

Kanye appreciates that she has made her own money and knows she is with him for the right reasons.

He added: ''She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find.''
