After six years of marriage, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian parted ways in January 2021. Their divorce, which Kardashian filed in February of the same year, was finalized in November 2022 but both West and Kardashian have been romantically linked to other people since their split. Kardashian famously dated SNL star Pete Davidson for 10 months, while West has been busy spending time with several women, including a brief but very public dalliance with Julia Fox.
It’s not surprising to see two adults who are going through a complicated divorce process seek out comfort and new love in others, but while Kardashian, 42, was set on the divorce, West, 47, continuously expressed interest in fixing their broken relationship. West has been vocal about how much he is still in love with her — even going so far as to become her neighbor. “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 22-time Grammy winner said in a five-minute Thanksgiving prayer on Instagram. Ye even went after her then-beau Davidson several times. In a since-deleted post, he wrote, “IF YOU SEE SKETE IN REAL LIFE SCREAM AT THE [LOSER] AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS AND SAY KIMYE FOREVER.”
But it appears as though West has finally let Kardashian go. Rumors even say he found a new Mrs. to boot in Yeezy’s Head of Architecture Bianca Censori. The new couple reportedly had “a small marriage ceremony” on Jan. 13, per an Us Weekly report, just days after they were first spotted publicly on Jan. 9.
Here is a look at all the women West has been romantically attached to since their breakup, including his rumored new wife Bianca Censori.
Censori, 27, has been working with the entrepreneur at Yeezy since 2020 but it was only last December that the rumor mill was alerted to a possible romance. The Australia native’s name first came up on Dec. 8 after Ye shared new music on Instagram and captioned the now-deleted post, “Censori overload,” leading many to believe he named his latest track after his new partner.
The two continued to spark rumors in January after being spotted together on different occasions, along with after their secret wedding. Though it’s unclear if the ceremony makes the union legally binding, West has been walking around with what appears to be a wedding ring on his finger.
While there’s not much to know about their relationship so far, legally married or not, the two seem to be serious about each other. On Jan. 23, they were photographed having dinner with Ye’s eldest daughter North West at Nobu in California.
West spent the beginning of 2022 with Uncut Gems actor Julia Fox — and dated for six weeks. Though per Page Six, the two were in an open relationship, Fox said on the Feb. 8 episode of the “Call Her Daddy” podcast that “she calls him [her] boyfriend and he calls [her] his girlfriend.” She also described their relationship as “natural” and “organic.”
“Obviously it looks a certain way, but people don’t know the conversations happening behind the scenes, and you know, I’ve been around,” Fox explained before addressing West’s comments late last year about wanting to rekindle his romance with the Skims founder. “I’m sure there’s still some residual feelings and that’s normal. It’s human,” she said. “I also know that he’s with me now and that’s all that matters.”
But none of the couple’s PDA outings nor matching clothes for Fashion Week compared to their Interview magazine launch, with an article penned by Fox herself. Titled “Date Night” and published on Jan. 6, questions about their romance were soon answered by Fox. “I met Ye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and it was an instant connection. His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night,” wrote the actor.
Talking about one of her favorite dates with Ye, Fox wrote that West had a “surprise” for her one night: “an entire hotel suite full of clothes.” “It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment. I don’t know how he did it, or how he got all of it there in time,” she detailed. “But I was so surprised. Like, who does things like this on a second date? Or any date! Everything with us has been so organic.”
They even started coordinating outfits at some point, stepping out in matching pieces like these matching denim-on-denim ensembles for Paris Fashion Week. Their coordinated outfits served as inspiration for a variety of memes, including several that compared their look to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake circa 2001.
Though Fox even defended the pairing on her podcast, Forbidden Fruits, insisting that she’s not with the rapper “for the money,” the two reportedly parted ways on Feb. 14, 2022. The following day, Fox took to her Instagram Stories to tell the world she is OK post-breakup. “I came up yall lol and not only that but Kanye and I are on good terms! I have love for him but I wasn’t in love w the man Jesus Christ what do u guys think I am 12 years old?!”
“It’s funny cause I’m getting all of this attention, but I really couldn’t care,” Fox said, according to Cosmopolitan. “People are like ‘Oh, you’re only in it for the fame, you’re in it for the clout, you’re in it for the money.’ Honey, I’ve dated billionaires my entire adult life, let’s keep it real.”
In late December 2021, West spent time with Instagram influencer and model Yasmine Lopez. She shared a short video of her with the hip-hop powerhouse at J Mulan’s birthday party in Houston. While some media outlets were quick to label the two as an item, it doesn’t appear they were actually dating, though they may have been romantically linked for a short time at some point. “Sources connected to Kanye and Yasmine tell TMZ they’re not dating,” TMZ reported.
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. The news of their split came after reports that they attended the inaugural basketball game at West’s Donda Academy in Minneapolis. Around the same time, as reports surfaced about Kardashian’s relationship with Davidson, West had made it known that he wants to reconcile with Kardashian, which could be one reason why his romance with Vinetria ultimately didn’t work out.
Before Vinetria, West reportedly dated 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.” The two have known each other for more than a decade, as West notably featured Shayk in his 2010 music video for “Power.” That same year, he name-dropped her in a track called “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” rapping “I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen.”
Anonymous tip Instagram account DeuxMoi sparked the dating speculation on May 24. After the account shared a tip they received that the two were an item, a second source reportedly slid into DeuxMoi’s DMs to clarify that while West may have tried “courting” the model, they were 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.
Shayk had been single ever since calling it quits with actor Bradley Cooper in 2019. They were together for roughly four years and co-parent a young daughter. While it doesn’t sound like West and Shayk ever got very serious, it started to seem like West was ready to find love again.
In June, the rumors continued when the Daily Mail published photos of them in France at the boutique hotel Villa La Coste around West’s 44th birthday. It was “a great trip,” said a source to PEOPLE, who claimed that they planned to date long-distance. By mid-July, the outlet quoted an insider as saying Kardashian was “fine with Kanye dating” others.
