Kayne West and Kim Kardashian appear to be two peas in a pod as they move into their newly purchased $11 million mansion and prepare for the upcoming birth of their child. Some people have even begun to let their guard down long enough to believe that the Kimye relationship could in fact be real love and not just some highly orchestrated publicity stunt by an attention-hungry mastermind. However, Kanye’s ex-girlfrined Brooke Crittendon is ringing the alarm saying that this relationship is not nearly as organic as it appears. In a recent interview with The Sun, the 31-year-old dropped many bombs regarding Kanye and his newfound love with reality star Kim Kardashian. Check out some of the highlights from her interview.
On Kanye’s semi-obsession with Kim:
“I know he has had a thing with her for a while. I’m sure he watched her tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there.
On Kim being a good look for Kanye’s brand:
“For Kanye, what other person besides Kim Kardashian is there? There’s Halle Berry, J-Lo and Beyonce but they are all taken. She fits into his brand.”
“Part of being untouchable is having what other people want. It’s about saying, ‘Everybody wants her and she wants me’. That makes sense in Kanye’s world.”
On the nature of Kanye and Kim’s relationship:
“In Hollywood, you cannot say ‘forever’. Them being together satisfies them for now.”
“Having a baby ticks a box. She wanted kids and it’s his legacy.”
On the role Jay Z played in the conception of Kanye and Kim’s baby:
“He admires Jay-Z and they are very close. Over the years Jay has been a role model to him. Whether it is starting to be more mature, taking chances with clothes or getting married and starting a family, ultimately he takes those cues from Jay.”
Brooke and Kanye dated for nearly three years. They met back in 2004 at a concert where he was opening for Usher. The two eventually split because of infidelity. You may remember Brooke from a few years ago. She appeared on BET’s short-lived reality show Harlem Heights.
What do you make of all of this? Do her statements merely confirm what you’ve been thinking all along? Do you believe she has some sort of agenda behind sharing all of this?
