Kanye West is back at it again! The rapper is rumored to have found himself a new woman, and this one happens to be a supermodel!
And while the new woman can’t be described as a Kim Kardashian knock-off, she does surely have something in connection with his estranged wife…and it is surprising.
Is Kanye West Dating Again? Who Is She?
At the New York Fashion Week event for this week, the Yeezy founder was seen getting cozy with a mystery woman who has been unveiled as Candice Swanepoel, a top model who has worked with several A-list brands.
Several reports are claiming the pair got super flirty at the NYFW event for Ye’s new Yeezy GAP sunglasses collection, of which Swanepoel is the face. Although the duo was there in a professional capacity due to their collaboration on the project, witnesses claim they took several pictures together and immediately went straight from the Yeezy Gap Shdz party to his hotel.
To make things more intense, Kanye has cleared his Instagram page of all posts and slathered images of Swanepoel starring in his Yeezy GAP sunglasses. There’s a picture of her nude and covering her breath area while wearing a pair of futuristic glasses from Ye’s brand. Instagram official?!
Kanye also took to his Instagram Story to share a blurry photo of him taking a playful, sultry picture of his rumored girlfriend, who wore pink pants under a baggy silver jacket. Neither Ye nor Swanepoel has publicly confirmed that they are together, but it is often Ye’s modus operandi to change his Instagram and feature the new woman in his life as a way of sending out a message.
The Famous Duo Reportedly Connected Over Fashion
Nevertheless, several sources have confirmed that Swanepoel and Ye are indeed dating. An insider told ET Online, “Kanye and Candice are dating, and their relationship is new. They like each other and are happy with how things are going so far. They’ve connected over fashion and creativity. Kanye is excited about Candice.”
Famous Instagram gossip blogger Deux Moi received messages from two sources, one of which she claimed to Swanepoel’s stylist confirming that she and the “Praise God” rapper are an item.
Apparently, this isn’t Ye’s first interaction with the South African model. He allegedly tried to pursue her and was “desperately” trying to get her number after the two first met at the Victoria’s Secret VIP Swim event.
While things remain quite new with the rumored lovers, it comes as no surprise that Swanepoel has a professional connection with his estranged wife.
Back in April, Swanepoel starred in a SKIMS campaign and was featured in the famous campaign photo that included Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum. We are guessing she might not get invited back for next year’s campaign.
As you might know, this isn’t Ye’s first time going for women who have some warped resemblance or connection to the mother of his kids.
