Most recently, Kim, 43, and Odell, 31, were seen together at a party for the Grammys in West Hollywood.
After it was revealed the duo was considering going public with their romance, sources confirmed the two were seen kissing during the recent outing.
“Last Thursday they both arrived at Birds Street Club in West Hollywood separately but got a table with Khloe and were openly kissing and getting cozy,” an insider exclusively told The U.S. Sun.
“Plenty of guests saw them together but it was the perfect date place because it’s a private members club with a strict no photo policy.
“The paparazzi didn’t get them together as they left separately and Kim had her Range Rover brought into the parking garage.”
“It’s the same spot Kendall and Bad Bunny were first seen kissing, so she’s taking a leaf out of her sister’s book when it comes to dating,” they added.
On Kim and Odell’s growing relationship, the insider clarified the two have been an exclusive couple for quite some time.
“Kim and Odell are definitely an item now and they’ve been seeing each other for months,” they explained.
“Although they haven’t stepped out in public, they’ve not really kept it behind closed doors either.”
According to In Touch Weekly, the pair has been seeing each other since July 2023, when they both went to a Hamptons party hosted by billionaire Michael Rubin.

In September, sources told People that Kim and Odell were “hanging out.”
At the time, Kim’s representative told The U.S. Sun that she and Odell were friends with many mutual friends in common, adding that the Hulu star was not “seriously dating anyone.”
Their rumored romance came after the Baltimore Ravens wide receiver and his long-term girlfriend, model Lauren Wood, officially ended their relationship.
Shortly after, Kim was spotted at Odell’s 31st birthday party in November after she attended the CFDA Fashion Awards.
KEEPING IT QUIET
This week, sources claimed Kim and Odell kept their romance quiet in order to better protect their families.
“Kim has been romantically involved with Odell since last summer and thought she had managed to keep it under wraps,” an insider told DailyMail on Friday.
“She is not seeing anyone else right now – at least not that her close friends know of.”
The source said Kim wanted to avoid claims that she was a “homewrecker” in Odell’s relationship with Lauren, with whom he shares his one-year-old son, Zydn.
“Kim really wanted to keep this romance private for two reasons. One is that he has a one-year-old son with his ex-Lauren Woods,” the source said.
“They both wanted to avoid any speculation that he left Lauren for Kim – branding Kim a homewrecker.”
The insider added that Kim wanted to avoid any issues with her ex-husband Kanye as well, with whom she has four children – North, 10; Saint, eight; Chicago, six; and Psalm, four.
“After what Kanye put Pete Davidson through, Kim wants to avoid that at all costs,” they said.
Kim and former Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson split in August 2022 after nine months of dating.
