ALEXIS PHIFER: 2002-2008
First fiancée: The then-unknown Kanye started dating model and designer Alexis in 2002
A then-unknown Kanye started dating model and designer Alexis in 2002 – around the same time he first met future wife Kim.
They had a love affair for a few years before getting engaged in 2006. However, 18 months later, they called off the marriage.
Alexis told People in 2008: ‘It’s always sad when things like this end, and we remain friends
“I wish him the best for his future and all his efforts. He is one of the most talented people I have ever met.
Kanye dealt with the breakup while working on 808s and Heartbreak – an album that would top the charts and propel him to rap superstar rank.

Brooke dated Kanye for two and a half years after meeting backstage at a concert in 2004 while working as a production assistant for MTV.
But the couple ultimately ended their long-term romance because Brooke wasn’t comfortable “sharing” her man with other women.
She added in an interview with The Sun newspaper in 2013: “I have never agreed to be one of many – or even one of a few.
“Kanye was very open and honest, but I ended up knowing too much.
“I don’t mean to be stupid and say it wasn’t cheating because I knew it.
“He definitely had an appreciation for the female form and a curiosity.
“As a celebrity sex gets cheap but her obsession with sex was more sophisticated.”
AMBER ROSE: 2008-2010
Acrimonious separation: Kanye’s most publicized romance before Kimye was with model and social media star Amber Rose (pictured 2010)
Kanye’s most publicized romance before Kimye was with model and social media star Amber Rose. Kanye reportedly spotted Amber on a video shoot for Ludacris’ single What Them Girls Like in 2008, and they became friends.
The beauty was by his side when he stole Taylor Swift’s mic during his MTV VMA acceptance speech and the couple stayed together for two years.
Kanye dared to slam his ex-girlfriend in 2015 when he said in an interview that he was due to take “30 showers” after dating Amber.
He frankly confessed, “If Kim had dated me when I wanted to, there would be no Amber Rose.”
The rapper reportedly had an eye on Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim as early as 2008, naming her his “girl of the week” in the first blog posts that resurfaced in October 2014.
He added in the one-on-one: “It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone who’s with Amber Rose. I had to take 30 showers before being with Kim.
Amber later referred to Kim as a “household breaker.”
In January 2012, Amber accused Kanye of cheating on her with Kim, who was then dating American footballer Reggie Bush.
She told America’s Star magazine, “They were both cheating. They were both cheating on me, Reggie and me.
“She was sending pictures, and I was like, ‘Kim, stop. Don’t be that person. “‘
In January 2016, West reignited his long war with ex-girlfriend Amber after dragging her name into a 30-tweet tirade against then-partner Wiz Khalifa.
But his revenge was a bit more concise – a short, shocking and sexually explicit response that caused a collective gasp on the internet.
In 2020, he would also have called her a “prostitute” during a presidential rally.

In May, they take it one step further and make their Cannes Film Festival red carpet debut at the premiere of the movie Cruel Summer.
In December, rapper Stronger happily revealed he was expecting his first child with Kim at a New Year’s Eve concert in Atlantic City.
Together, they will have four children: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
Kayne and Kim’s relationship started to go downhill in 2020 after West revealed he and Kim had considered aborting their first pregnancy during an erratic speech for his presidential campaign.
He also disparaged Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, and hinted that Kim may have been unfaithful.
The couple tried to work things out, with an emotional Kardashian seen visiting her husband at his Wyoming ranch last July.
But at the end of the month, Kim reportedly met with lawyers to begin the divorce process. They officially filed for divorce in January of this year.

Just two years later, the Russian-born beauty put her modeling skills to the test by parading for West’s fall / winter fashion collection at Paris Fashion Week.
