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?

    I believe her .. kanye needs direction so he is following suit but kim never really looks happy about having a baby . I mean workout yes but calm down ..

  • QueenD

    Honestly I think the same thing. Cuz I mean, think about it. He publicly announced on stage that Kim was pregnant, like bey did at the VMAs 2011. He plans on making a song for his baby that will probably feature him or her crying or laughing or doing something, like jay did for blue ivy. And Kanye wants Kim to record songs pregnant (even though she can’t sing) just because Beyonce kept recording and performing while pregnant. Wat next? R they going to name their baby after a color like and bey and jay too?

    • IllyPhilly

      Red Blossom. That’s the name.

    • Candacey Doris

      I hope you’re wrong about her recording. Even with auto tune she sounded bad. It’s not for her.

  • kathicks01

    She may or may not be bitter……who knows? Let’s say she “is”……what she’s saying could still be true! Being bitter doesn’t necessarily make u a liar…

  • Angela Ingram

    I believe everything that she is saying. I think that Kim loves the fact that Kanye is obsess with her. She thinks that what she is receiving from him is love but wait until her looks change, that love will fade along with her looks. She should have taken a break from dating anyway after filing for divorce from Chris. At least wait until the divorce was final! If Kanye really loved her and was a good man, he would have waited until the divorce was final out of respect. He has no respect. I’m done.

  • laia

    Just semi confirming the thoughts of many.

  • Taunya73

    That’s not news.

  • not bitter

    Her answers do not sound bitter…..actually a but boring and placid

  • Candacey Doris

    She’s saying what a lot of people are thinking already. I just wish he hadn’t decided to have a child with a woman who is still married. It could have waited until the divorce was final. I mean, what do you tell your child when they ask why mommy had a different last name on the birth certificate. And how do you tell your daughter (if it’s a girl) not to do the things you did?

    • TRUTH IS

      Different last name isnt even the issue….

      • Candacey Doris

        Explaining it to the kids is.

    • Just saying though

      The mother’s last name will be different on the birth certificate anyway because they list her maiden name!!

  • sammi_lu

    Why even do the interview or answer any questions regarding an ex that you can only make assumptions on about his character and present relationship?

    • Miyako

      How is she making assumptions about his character when she dated him for 2.5 years?

      • sammi_lu

        Dating someone for 2.5 years doesn’t make you an expert on them..people change a lot in the course of a lifetime. I know I’m not the same person I was 2.5 years ago..just saying.

        • Miyako

          Of course dating someone for 2.5 years doesn’t make one an expert of that person’s personality, but I did not argue that that was the case. You stated that she was making assumptions about his character, and I am simply stating that she may know enough about him to speak about his character. And, the fact that people change and that you aren’t the same person who you were 2.5 is irrelevant to this.

          • sammi_lu

            To imply that Kanye impregnated Kim to somehow follow Jay-Z’s lead is kind of reaching. And I guess because I recall her doing a similar interview about Kanye and Amber Rose where it seemed like she was low-key throwing shade..I can’t appreciate her responses or opinions.

            • Miyako

              To you it is, but then again, you don’t know any of them on a personal level, so she could very well be right.

              • sammi_lu

                and from how hard you are going on and back and forth over MY opinion..I’m guessing you know them on a personal level. Ahhhh all makes sense now..

                • Miyako

                  Sounds like someone who is defeated. You didn’t have to engage, but you did.

                  • sammi_lu

                    lol..so childish. @MorningRain:disqus there are so many heavier things going on today like the inauguration and above all else MLK day. If what you seek is a meaningless debate about people/a person that I merely stated my piece about just as you did yours..then yes dear you are extremely victorious! I don’t care to further engage a topic that is so weightless and benign especially when I am not as passionate about it, as you are. Be awesome!

                    • Miyako

                      I am not at all surprised by your response. I must ask, though – If this is a “weightless and benign” topic that you are not ‘passionate’ about, then why did you even comment in the first place? Your first statement goes to show that you are defeated, because you are bringing up it being the Inauguration and MLK day like that has something to do with this particular article.

    • realadulttalk

      Girl please–if Kim was talking and Brooke was pregnant…this would be going a different way. But b/c these women hate Kim–they don’t understand that declining to comment would have been classy. He dated her for 3 years…that was what, like 5 years ago???

  • lisa

    Brook is pretty

  • realadulttalk

    Since some of you don’t understand bitterness. A non-bitter woman would have declined to comment on a relationship she really knows nothing about. A bitter woman answers bitterly–and with no revelations b/c she’s not a part of his current life.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michelle-Taylor/1470426883 Michelle Taylor

      You come across as a bitter person, so I guess you would know.

      • realadulttalk

        I’m glad you think so–b/c your opinion matters.

  • ieshapatterson

    Makes sense.jay and B are a power couple,who are in love and are faithful to each other.they’ve made many accomplishments as a couple and appear to have it all.when you look at most rap artist,the have a new girlfriend/ baby mama every other week.besides,kim has been doing everything to be part of Beyonce world,so i believe this.

  • Miyako

    Why is it that whenever a Black woman expresses her thoughts, she is labeled as ‘bitter’? She was asked those questions. A lot of the women who comment here seem like raging, brainwashed, patriarchal people.

    • realadulttalk

      Because each of her responses sounds bitter…that’s why.

      • KJ23

        I thought her responses seemed very neutral. I didn’t see any shade or bitterness, but I guess the tone is in the eye of the beholder.

        • realadulttalk

          Yes it is, b/c there was nothing neutral about her responses…each one was shadier than the next.

  • MKayy

    Somebody sounds a bit bitter…. Just saying!

  • realadulttalk

    I don’t know Kanye personally and I could have told the interviewer all this. But Brooke…are ya bitter? I really don’t see any reason to interview this chick, he hasn’t dealt with her in years–she’s just trying to get some shine right now.

  • JaneDoe

    She’s not saying anything most of us don’t already see.. But it’s his life so let him live it. Everyone learns on their own

    • Miyako

      I highly doubt she is stopping him from living his life.

  • IllyPhilly

    Well he should have took the cue where Jay-z didn’t knock-up an openly wh0rish woman.
