It’s been less than two months since Kanye West and Kim Kardashian announced their divorce. The couple’s split came as no surprise because marital problems plagued the couple since last year. Although, they tried to make their marriage work, in the end they realized it’s best to go their separate ways.
The ink is still fresh on their papers, but that hasn’t stopped Kanye from thinking about dating again. According to reports, the 43-year-old rapper may be ready for another relationship, and he knows what type of woman he wants.
An Artist Companion
For his next significant other, Kanye wants someone different form his ex-wife Kim. The person Kanye’s looking for has to creative, an artist so to speak. According to reports, the reason West is seeking an artist girlfriend is because “they can speak the same language to each other.”
Given Kanye’s creative background, it’s no wonder he’s seeking someone with the same interests. Whether it’s music or designing for his Yeezy shoe brand, West unleashes his innovative side. Kanye’s love for creativity is so large that he once compared himself to Michelangelo and Picasso.
Girlfriends Prior To Kim
Prior to marrying Kim, Kanye dated a string of artistic women. From 2002 to 2008, he was in a on-again, off-again relationship with fashion designer Alexis Phifer. Although, the two became engaged in 2006, their relationship continued to be plagued by issues. Although, they ended their engagement, Phifer had no ill will towards her ex, and wished him luck in his future.
Another of West’s famous exes was singer and actress Amber Rose. The two dated from 2008 to 2010, and unlike Alexis, West’s relationship with Rose didn’t end on good terms. Following their break up, Kanye went on one of his famous tirades, where he appeared to be slut-shaming Rose.
Marriage And Divorce From Kim
Out of all the woman Kanye’s dated, it would be Kim who would get the rapper to settle down. The two started dating in April 2012, and a year later their daughter North was born in June 2013. Kim and Kanye made things official when they tied the knot in May 2014.
Following their marriage, Kim and Kanye became Hollywood’s newest power couple. As their music, fashion, and television empire grew; so did their family. The couple welcomed three more children; sons Saint and Psalm, and daughter Chicago.
However, like most couples Kim and Kanye had their problems. Tension between the couple came to a head in the summer of 2020. Kanye’s abortion comments at a South Carolina rally was the start of the demise of their marriage. Another issue was Kanye’s bipolar disorder, and his erratic behavior. All those factors would contribute to Kim’s decision to file for divorce.
Kim’s Not Interested In Dating
Although, Kanye appears ready to re-enter the dating scene, the same can’t be said for Kim. The 40-year-old KKW Beauty founder isn’t interested in dating.
At the moment, Kim’s life is busy taking care of her kids, running her businesses, and studying for her law degree. She has too much on her plate, and dating’s the furthest thing from her mind. Her main focus is the children and getting them adjusted to life after the divorce. Although, her and Kanye’s divorce hasn’t been finalized, the couple has agreed to joint custody of the kids.
