Since her very recent breakup with Dallas Cowboy's wide receiver Miles Austin, Kim Kardashian has claimed that she wanted to give being single a shot. Apparently, a few weeks was all she could handle because, according to In Touch, the reality star already has a new boyfriend: 28-year-old Michael Copon. You may have seen the young actor on One Tree Hill...or in a dream in which Taylor Lautner and Dean Cain somehow mated and made a baby.
Kim and Michael have known each other since 2006, when they met on the short-lived surfing soap, Beyond the Break. The new couple are currently in New York while Kim is filming her new series, Kim and Kourtney Take New York, on which Michael is expected to appear.

A "friend" of Kim's claims, "They have been running in the same circles and going to the same events forever, but now they are hitting it off romantically. The timing is right for both of them." Indeed, it's perfect timing because Kim needs a love interest for her upcoming show, and Michael needs a career boost to ensure he doesn't play roles like "Hot Guy at Party" for the rest of his life.
