Kanye West said he wants to date an artist after his divorce from Kim Kardashian. Could his newly single status lead him to rekindle a prior fling?
Earlier this year, Keeping Up With the Kardashians‘ Kanye West and Kim Kardashian confirmed they were getting a divorce after Kim officially filed in February. Fans of KUWTK were shocked by Kimye’s split, but also not surprised due to events leading up to February. Now that the rap star is newly single, fans are wondering who he’s most likely to date next.
The event which appears to have started the whole divorce process happened when Kanye said “slavery was a choice” on TMZ Live, which evidently pushed the limits of his marriage. In his song “Wouldn’t Leave,” he raps about the incident, “My wife callin’, screamin’, say, ‘We ‘bout to lose it all’ / Had to calm her down ‘cause she couldn’t breathe / Told her she could leave me now / But she wouldn’t leave.” A number of events happened after this, such as the Met Gala wet look scandal where Kanye said, “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.” It appears the 2020 year, filled with presidential campaigning and mental health issues, was the last straw for the dreamy power couple. So, who is Kanye most likely to date next?

As reported by Gossip Cop, Kanye was spotted with Candace Owens, an author, activist, and talk show host. Ever since the photos of West and Owens walking together went viral, people are wondering if they might be dating. However, the photos ended up being from 2018, meaning there is a small chance Kanye and Candace are dating. Not to mention Candace is married to George Farmer. Besides, it’s unlikely Kanye would date someone so conservative. Kanye has expressed wanting to date “an artist and a creative person” now that he’s single. There’s a possibility that Kanye could date Teyana Taylor, a musician he has worked with before. In her song “A Rose in Harlem,” she says, “N****s like ‘You ain’t hot? You ain’t pop yet? / What’s up wit’ you and Ye?’” Could this be referencing closeness between the two artists?
Kanye isn’t exactly the most active person on social media, the Internet, or elsewhere. He prefers to do his own thing. For this reason, it’s hard to know who he’s interacting with now, if anyone. However, that doesn’t mean that he won’t go back to one of his previous love interests. In 2010, Kanye was linked to Melody Thornton, the Pussycat Dolls star. They appeared publicly a few times together, but nothing developed from that. Rumors of a romance between West and Chanel Iman emerged in 2010, but she said nothing was going on. “I’ve always loved his music. He’s an incredible performer,” she claimed. In 2011, Kanye was spotted flirting with supermodel Kate Upton and they left a party together hand in hand. While we don’t know for sure what happened between West and these women, there is a chance he could rekindle the flame. One thing seems to be certain, though – Kanye is unlikely to return to Amber Rose given that she has spoken badly of him publicly.
Even though the ending of Kimye was a sad moment in the world of pop culture, nothing is forever. Celebrity couples always come and go. It’s only a matter of time until Kanye starts dating someone new. However, he’ll probably put a powerful album out about his breakup from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star first…at, least we hope he will.
