Kim Kardashian's best friend insists that her boyfriend Kanye West is ''always around.''

Jonathan Cheban has defended the couple's relationship after the reality TV star's stepfather Bruce Jenner recently revealed he has only met the 35-year-old rapper once and claimed he has barely been around during the Kim's pregnancy.

The PR guru told gossip website ''Kanye is the man. He's actually always around, I have hung out with them together so many times, I couldn't even count all the times and in different countries... all those stories make me laugh.''

Bruce recently admitted he doesn't really know Kanye because he has spent a lot of this year in Paris, working on his new album.

He said: ''(I've) only met him once. Yeah, he's not around, he was in Paris the whole time writing, and he just hasn't been around.''

Kim's stepbrother Brody Jenner, who has joined their show 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' this season, has also never met the rapper.

He said: ''I've never met him.''

But Jonathan, who regularly appears on Kim's reality shows and supported her during her split from ex-husband Kris Humphries, thinks that the brunette beauty, who will give birth to her first child next month, has finally found her perfect match with Kanye.

He said: ''He's so smart and interesting and perfect for Kim.''

He also blasted Kim's critics and believes she will shed all of her baby weight in two months, saying: ''I'm sick of the haters... Kim will have that body back in two month after having the baby. She'll be hot, but the haters will still be fat and ugly!''
