Is Kanye West back on the market? Ever since his tumultuous divorce with estranged wife Kim Kardashian, Kanye has been trying to keep busy with his dating life. But it looks like his most recent relationship has hit the skids.
As reported by Entertainment Tonight, sources say that Kanye and his girlfriend of four months, Chaney Jones, are over. the source revealed, “Things between Kanye and Chaney fizzled out.” They added, “They were never super serious to begin with. He has been doing his own thing and has been dating around since his divorce with Kim.” The source also noted, “[Kanye] is trying to do his own thing and surround himself with people that make him happy and figure out what he wants in a partner before completely settling down.”
But it doesn’t look like Chaney got the memo. In honor of Kanye’s 45th birthday, she posted a photo montage of the two on her Instagram. She wrote in her caption, “Happy birthday baby. I love youuuuu.” Ok, that seems like a lot for four months of dating. Is anyone else wondering if this is one big publicity stunt? I’m sure the answer it “of course.”
Chaney, who bears a striking resemblance to Kim, started dating the rapper in February. The two became public after being spotted out to dinner at Nobu in Malibu. And by “spotted” I mean, obviously wanted to be seen together since Nobu is such a high-profile place. In March, Page Six reported that Kanye gifted “an extremely rare version of the Birkin bag for Chaney Jones for $275,000 from Privé Porter.”
While that might seem pretty special, $275k is small potatoes for Kanye. The rapper and designer is estimated to be worth a whopping $2 billion. And it’s not the first time he’s given away a Birkin to a love interest. While he was dating Julia Fox, he bought her and several of her friends a baby Birkin. Julia insisted of the relationship, “There’s no labels, none of that,” and the couple broke up after 2 months.
As the breakup rumors continued for Chaney, she denied them on a recent TMZ Instagram post. She wrote in the comments, “Please stop posting and spreading fake news about my relationship. Have some respect, it’s his birthday.” But a few days later, Chaney deleted almost all of her Instagram posts, including her birthday wishes to Kayne. The only two that remain are pictures of her by herself, one posted in April and the last one posted in May.
