And this must have been a real treat for the people at BET's 106 & Park, where the usually-flamboyant personality was a guest.
Chin up, flower: Kanye West looked ridiculously glum as he recorded a TV segment in New York while his rumoured girlfriend enjoyed a dinner in LA
Gentlemanly behaviour: The reality star was joined by her sister Kourtney's boyfriend Scott Disick who looked dapper as usual in a suit
Put bluntly, the star - whose cheerful, hedonistic leopard print jacket was starkly at odds with the sheer despair etched into his features - looked like he'd had some really, really bad news.
The 34-year-old did not look like a man who has snared one of the hottest women in the world.
Life and soul of the party: Glum Kanye refuses to even try and crack a smile alongside Rosci, 2 Chainz and Terrence J at 106 & Park Studio
He's supposed to be dating THIS! Kim didn't look too cheerful either though, as she arrived at STK on La Cienega in West Hollywood
In love: He's literally walking on air
And this pair are so new they haven't even had their first reality show together.
And let's face it, we're all hoping they at least get to the unisex fragrance stage before the obligatory messy break up, confessional rap lyrics and Hike away the Heartbreak exercise DVD.
Over in Los Angeles, 31-year-old Kim didn't exactly look on top of the world either, suggesting the pair might be missing each other or have had their first row.
If it is the latter, there is no chance we won't hear about it, these two are the world's premier sharers.
But we have to be thankful that they weren't together as Kim was wearing giant palazzo trousers, which next to Kanye's jacket would've made them look like a circus act.
Roll up, roll up: It was a good job Kanye and Kim weren't together in these outfits... but so you can see how bad they'd look, we put them together anyway
So versatile: Kim rocked out leather trousers, white shirt and orange jacket earlier in the day. Isn't she wonderful?
Start of something new: Kim and Kanye out on their lunch and shopping date in NYC last week
Kim donned the baggy pants for a slap up meal at LA's STK restaurant with her sister's Kourtney's partner, Scott Disick, which was being filmed for their TV show, of course.
Earlier in the day she'd rocked out a neon orange blazer, a change from her usual hot pink and a stark reminder that we can never underestimate Kim's versatility.
