Inside Kanye West's Relationship History

Celebrity - News


Kanye West is one of the most famous rappers in the world, and his storied romantic history dates back to the early 2000s, when he broke into the rap scene. West dated designer Alexis Phifer on and off starting in 2002, and they even got engaged in 2006, but called it off in 2008.

West then dated model Amber Rose starting in 2008, and their relationship had plenty of drama, such as West slut-shaming her post-breakup: "I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim." Incidentally, Wests's longest-lasting relationship to date was his seven-year marriage to Kim Kardashian.

Kim and Kanye made their romantic courtship official in 2012, after being friends for years and after several short-lived relationships. Fans were shocked when "Kimye" announced their divorce due to "differences in lifestyle and politics," and Kanye moved on to Russian supermodel Irina Shayk right after.
