Kanye West’s ex-girlfriends as Kim Kardashian files for divorce

Rapper Kanye West, 43, has been married to gorgeous TV star, model and now businesswoman Kim Kardashian for seven years, but sadly after months of rumours it was reported yesterday that the latter has now filed for divorce.

It has been said that the former couple were already living separately and acting as though they had broken up for a while, and the pair will be seeking joint custody of their four children North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm, who is only 21 months old.

The split is the latest in the Stronger singer’s history of exes, which consist of exotic dancer Amber Rose, Alexis Phifer and model Sessilee Lopez to name a few.

Some ended amicably and others not so much, dating all the way back to his high school sweetheart in the 90s.

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been married for seven years after first meeting back in the early noughties.

But it wasn't until 2010 that Kanye made his Keeping Up With The Kardashians debut, which saw him visit Kim and Kourtney Kardashian's new store in KUWTK spin-off, Kim and Kourtney Take New York.

In 2012, Kanye admitted he loved Kim in a rap verse for track Cold.

Following this, the duo were spotted at various public events, before confirming in December 2012 that they were expecting their first child together.

In June 2013 they welcomed daughter North and four months later Kanye popped the question to Kim at the AT&T Stadium in San Francisco in front of her family and friends.

The couple married in May 2014 in a lavish ceremony in Italy in front of their family and friends. The showbiz power couple went on to welcome three more children together.

But last year rumours that their marriage was in trouble started to circulate following Kanye's disturbing behaviour. In July 2020 Kim shared a statement addressing Kanye's mental health following the rap star posting a series of alarming tweets. Kim showed her unwavering support for Kanye in the statement and shot down reports that the pair were to separate.

However, since summer last year rumours that the couple were heading for a divorce have continued to swirl and the pair were snapped during a teary reunion late last year. The poignant snap came after it was reported that Kim was living in California while Kanye was living in Wyoming.

Confirming what many had been speculating for quite some time, on February 19 2021 TMZ reported that the pair were officially set to divorce.

Chanel Iman

Kanye’s most recent romantic tryst before his wife was said to be the stunning Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman in 2011, who was 20 at the time and 14 years younger than the famous musician.

While the duo were said to be linked, they never officially confirmed they were in a relationship.

It all began when Chanel walked down his runway in Paris, prompting rumours to spread like wildfire.

The pair were pictured at Givenchy’s afterparty, but if there were any sparks, they must have fizzled out relatively quickly.

Speaking to US magazine, Chanel denied any romance as she said: “Rumors are rumors. Kanye's a great artist. He's very talented. I’ve always loved his music. He's an incredible performer."

During that time, Kanye was also linked to an Australian model named Cheyenne Tozzi, Mary-Kate Olsen, Kate Upton, Teyana Taylor and even Miss Universe herself, Angela Martini.

Selita Ebanks

Kanye was linked to runway model Selita Ebanks in 2010, but not much materialised from the rumours.

The beauty starred in the singer’s short film called Runaway, and they were seen together around that time.

Selita repeatedly denied she and Kanye had ever gotten together, so it’s unclear when they may have split.

Amber Rose

Former exotic dancer Amber Rose and the rapper dated for just two years from 2008 to 2010, but when speaking about their relationship she has claimed Kanye was mean to her "for years" after their split.

Speaking during an appearance on the No Jumper podcast, Amber was asked if she’d "soaked up" any of the rapper’s energy.

"I didn’t soak up anything from him," she stated. "Me and him are two very different people. I’m a compassionate person. I have empathy.

"I’m a good person. That's why people love me. That's why anybody I've ever dated always loved me."

Talking about Kanye’s comments about needing "30 showers" after they’d been in bed together, Amber wondered if was for Kim’s benefit.

"I don’t know if he says things to make his wife more comfortable, but to slut-shame me and say you needed 30 showers, like, bro, you took me around the world. Since when do you need 30 showers?” the star said.

"He has picked on me for 10 years," Amber added.

Sessilee Lopez

After Kanye's romance with Alexis Phifer ended, he reportedly started dating model Sessilee Lopez in 2008.

The couple met while filming his Flashing Lights music video and were rumoured to have hit it off.

Kanye handpicked the gorgeous starlet for the track and the pair delivered a very hot and heavy video.

Sessilee and Kanye were said to have dated for a brief period but neither announced when their romance ended.

Alexis Phifer

Before Kanye became a hugely-popular rapper, he dated fashion designer and stylist Alexis Phifer.

The pair first got together in 2002 but were then on and off for roughly six years.

The couple finally seemed to get it right when they announced their engagement in 2006, but only 18 months later they called off the wedding.

Speaking about her experiences being in a "high profile relationship" in the industry years later, Alexis shared: "I’ve learned that no matter what, you always have to be yourself and hold your head up high and have respect for yourself.

"I’ve learned that the industry can get a bad rep, but if you’re able to be around certain people and experience new things, just take it as something that’s good and learn from it and be inspired by it because there is definitely inspiration. And about being in a high profile relationship… just keep your business to yourself," the star added.

She also once told People magazine it was "sad" when she and Kanye broke up, assuring they would "remain friends" and she wished him "the best in his future".

Brooke Crittendon

While he was on and off with Alexis, Kanye dated Brooke Crittendon in 2005.

The couple hit it off after they’d met backstage at a music concert.

Brooke was working as a production assistant for MTV at the time, and allegedly called their whirlwind relationship like going to theme park Disneyland.

She also told The Sun that Kanye "had an appreciation for the feminine form and a curiosity," and that sex with him had been "more sophisticated" than with other partners.

Kanye also dated Sumeke Rainey during their high school years back in the 90s.

Her voice is sampled on his song Get Em High but while Kanye once claimed he was going to marry his school sweetheart in his song Never Let Me Down, the pair ended up calling it quits sometime in the late 90s.
