The list of women who have been involved with Kanye West throughout his career certainly isn't short. In the early days of his rise to fame, the father of four was previously on and off with designer Alexis Phifer and spent a brief period with Harlem Heights star Brooke Crittendon. Not long after those ended is when his first high-profile relationship, with Amber Rose, caught the public's attention. They were also making up and breaking up from 2008 to 2010, though some of their most iconic fashion moments remain imprinted in the brains of pop culture fanatics everywhere.
Following that romance came the birth of Kimye as Kim Kardashian dissolved her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries in 2012. In December of that same year, the socialite announced her pregnancy with their first child, which the "All of the Lights" rapper followed up with a proposal. They went on to welcome three more children, though their marriage was unable to stand the test of time and ultimately ended in 2022. West went on to spend time with models like Irina Shayk and Candice Swanepoel, though it was his short-lived union with Julia Fox that really had the masses talking.
What's it Really Like to Date Kanye West?
As the second season of her Forbidden Fruits podcast kicks off, the Uncut Gems actress welcomed Rose onto the show to discuss what it was like to date the 45-year-old. At one point, the OnlyFans creator recalled West offering to come to a close family member's funeral with her, which she adamantly refused. "I called Kanye like, 'F*ck, I need a ticket home right now. My aunt just died, she's like my favourite person on Earth," she shared. "He was like, 'I'll come to Philly with you. I'll come to the funeral, whatever you need.' And I was like, 'You can't come to the funeral. The whole [thing] is gonna be about you."
"Not you pulling up to your auntie's funeral with Kanye West," co-host Niki Takesh joked. "You know he'd find the AUX cord, and he'd start playing his new song, Julia Fox chimed in with a laugh. Elsewhere in this week's episode, the Forbidden Fruits personalities and Rose discuss how she "ascended to fame on her own terms" while correcting some of the misconceptions around her come-up.
