Is Kanye West Dating Anyone After Divorcing Kim Kardashian?

Published

on

It’s been less than a year since the earth-shattering news of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s divorce and the rapper is already experiencing another breakup. According to Page Six, West is no longer dating model Vinetria, who he was reportedly seeing “for a while” when the outlet broke the news of their relationship in November. Bustle has reached out to the Donda rapper’s reps for comment and will update this story accordingly.

The news of their split comes after reports that they attended the inaugural basketball game at West’s Donda Academy in Minneapolis last month. Simultaneously, reports continued to surface about Kardashian’s relationship with Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. West has also made it known in recent weeks that he wants to reconcile with the Skims founder, which could be why his romance with Vinetria ultimately didn’t work out.

“All I think about every day is how to get my family back together and how I heal the pain that I’ve caused,” the “Come to Life” artist said in a five-minute Thanksgiving prayer on Instagram last month. He also said that he takes “accountability” for the actions that led to his February split and admitted that he “embarrassed” Kardashian when he tried to transition from music to politics. “Being a good wife, she just wanted to protect me and our family,” he said.

According to court documents obtained by People earlier this month, Kardashian has no interest in reconciling. “[Kardashian] has been attempting to settle this manner since she filed her Petition for Dissolution of Marriage in February 2021,” the documents state. “[Kardashian] and her counsel have reached out to [West] and his counsel several times in an attempt to move this case forward to a speedy and amicable resolution. [West] has been non-responsive.”

It remains unclear when West and Kardashian’s divorce will be finalized and why the rapper has been dating despite wanting to reconcile with his ex. Before Vinetria, for example, he was reportedly dating model Irina Shayk. However, sources told People that their relationship fizzled in August, with one adding that “it was never a serious thing that took off.” Meanwhile, another insider told Us Weekly, “They never really started, there’s nothing going on there.”

Dating speculation surrounding West and Shayk was sparked by the anonymous tip Instagram account DeuxMoi on May 24. After the account shared a tip they received that the two were an item, a second source reportedly slid into their DMs to clarify that while the “Famous” rapper may have tried “courting” the model, they were ultimately just friends. The situation got a little stickier when a third person messaged DeuxMoi to say that they were “definitely dating.” Still, it remained unclear what, if anything, was going on between them. (Bustle reached out to West and Shayk’s reps for comment but did not receive a response.)

At the time, Kardashian was said not to be particularly worried about her ex moving on. “Kim doesn’t buy into the Irina rumors at all,” a Sun source said. “To her, it’s some attention-seeking no one who tried to piggyback some clout off their wedding anniversary.” The insider added that the Skims founder is “not at all bothered” by the rumors and that “no one in her circle appears to care or believe it.” “Even if it is true, I doubt she’ll even be upset at this point,” the source said.

In June, the rumors continued when the Daily Mail published photos of the rapper and the model spending time together in France. They were reportedly staying at the boutique hotel Villa La Coste together, and the timing coincided with West’s 44th birthday. It was “a great trip,” said a People source, who revealed that they planned to date long-distance. By mid-July, the outlet quoted an insider as saying Kardashian was “fine with Kanye dating.”

While it doesn’t sound like West and Shayk ever got very serious, it started to seem like the rapper was ready to find love again. Page Six first reported his split from the reality star on Jan. 6, and their divorce was apparently in the works for quite some time. According to multiple sources, Kardashian hadn’t been seen wearing her wedding ring ahead of the official confirmation on Feb. 19, and West had spent most of his time on their ranch in Wyoming to prepare for their separate lives while they sorted out their divorce plans.

Shayk, for her part, had been single ever since calling it quits with actor Bradley Cooper in 2019. They were together for roughly four years and share a 4-year-old daughter. However, Shayk and West knew each other long before the A Star Is Born actor ever entered the picture. In 2010, she was one of the models featured in West’s music video for his song “Power.” That same year, he name-dropped her in a track called “Christian Dior Denim Flow.” “I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen,” the lyrics read.

Shayk isn’t the only celebrity West has been romantically linked to since the news of his divorce. Shortly after the news broke, (now-debunked) rumors of the Yeezus rapper’s next fling began swirling around the internet. Like most viral rumors these days, this one started with a TikTok posted by user Ava Louise (@realavalouiise), whom you may remember from her last infamous post, in which she licked a toilet seat for the “Coronavirus Challenge” back in April. She posted a video to her profile on Jan. 4 and said:

Now that Kim’s finally doing this, I can spill the tea that I’ve been holding onto for months. This whole divorce comes as no surprise. Kanye’s been hooking up with a very famous beauty guru — male beauty guru. A lot of people in the scene have known for a while.

The rumors were completely false, but that didn’t stop other TikTokers from building on the theory, including @pattypopculture, who alleged that the unnamed paramour is YouTuber and makeup guru Jeffree Star. He posted a video the same day alongside the caption: “These new rumors may have more to them than you think. They are unconfirmed rumors tho. Absolutely nothing is confirmed.”

In his video, @pattypopculture reiterated Ava Louise’s claims and added that Star bought a house in Wyoming in August — while West was residing there. He also alleged that the two were living in the same gated community.

Although no official source was attached to either TikTok video, the rumor began blowing up on social media almost immediately. Later that day, while insurrectionists broke into the United States Capitol building, Jeffree Star figured it was the perfect time to engage with the baseless rumor and posted a selfie to Twitter, writing, “I’m ready for Sunday Service.”

Star’s tweet wasn’t the last time he addressed the topic. He later posted a 23-minute-long video to YouTube in which he debunked the allegation and called it “the dumbest sh*t I’ve ever read in my entire life.” He expressed confusion at the connection between himself and the rapper, asking, “How would that even be made up? Because we both live in the same state? Whatever.” He then concluded, saying, “Let me just say this one time for any news outlet: I like very tall men, me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny.”

The Best Memes & Tweets About the UK Government’s ‘Partygate’

Published

on

In December 2021, news broke that a series of alleged staff parties and lockdown breaches had occurred within Downing Street and Whitehall offices during the height of lockdown. In the weeks following, it’s been almost impossible to avoid the increasing amount of headlines and buzz regarding what is now being dubbed “partygate”.

The ongoing scandal has so far led to the resignation of former government advisor, Allegra Stratton, after a video in which she joked about a Downing Street Christmas party was leaked to the press.

Since then, things have only gotten worse for Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party. Downing Street and Whitehall have been accused of hosting No. 10 garden drinks in May 2020, hosting two parties on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021, and hosting multiple leaving-dos for Downing Streets aides and advisors, among other alleged parties. That’s a lot of parties…

More recently, ITV News reported that around 30 people attended a birthday event for the Prime Minister in June 2020. Downing Street later admitted the gathering took place — and this latest revelation will likely form part of the ongoing investigation into parties in No 10 during lockdown, which is being lead by the senior civil servant, Sue Gray, BBC reports.

Per The Guardian, the scandal has not gone down well with some Conservative MPs, many of whom are reportedly planning to send letters of no confidence in Boris Johnson — which could see him ousted from his position as Prime Minister.

Naturally, social media has had a lot to say about the “partygate” scandal. Tweeting in response to one Tory MP’s claim that Johnson was “ambushed with a cake,” culinary queen Nigella Lawson wrote, “Ambushed by Cake: it just has to be the title of my next book! #AmbushedByCake.”

Others were quick to join in with their own hilarious takes. The Scotsman correspondent, Alexander Brown, joked, “Have you been ambushed with a cake that wasn’t your fault? You may be entitled to compensation.”

Meanwhile, in response to reports of Downing Street staff filling a suitcase with wine, the official Co-op account tweeted, “I’m afraid we don’t sell wine by the suitcase. Only by bottle. If you want to bring your own suitcase feel free.”

Here are some more of the funniest memes and tweets from across the internet about ‘partygate’.

Mel C Memoir ‘Who I Am: My Story’: Release Date, Pre-Order & What to Know

Published

on

Despite previously saying fans would have to wait until she was 80-years-old for an autobiography, Mel C – otherwise known as Melanie Chisholm – is finally set to share her spiced up world with readers this autumn. Taking inspiration from her 2021 single “Who I Am”, Chisholm’s Who I Am: My Story will cover everything from her days as Sporty Spice and her successful career as a solo artist, as well as her experiences with mental health and “the difficulty of finding yourself when the whole world knows your name.”

Set to hit bookshelves on Sep. 22, 2022, you can pre-order Who I Am: My Story from Waterstones for £20 and WHSmith for £16 – both of which include a signed edition of the book. You can also pre-order the Kindle edition from Amazon for £10.39. Who I Am: My Story will also be available as an audiobook.

“It’s taken a long time to feel ready to tell my story,” Chisholm said in a statement. “The last few years have given me an opportunity to reflect on the incredible career I’ve had and the huge obstacles I’ve managed to overcome.” The singer has been very open about her experiences with mental health – particularly depression, body image, and an eating disorder – which occurred frequently during the height of her success in the Spice Girls and as a solo artist.

I had everything I’d ever dreamed of, and was desperately unhappy,” as she told The Guardian in 2020. “It’s often forgotten that people in the public eye are human.”

Chisholm has had years of retrospection, including becoming a mum for the first time as well as returning to the world stage with the Spice Girls in 2019. “I’ve really enjoyed going back and reminding myself of the wonderful journey life has been so far,” the artist said. “I’m very excited to share my experiences with you all.”
