Kanye West has blasted his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose by admitting he had to take “thirty showers” after dating her before getting with his now-wife Kim Kardashian West.
The outspoken rapper blasted his former lover – who has launched a war of words against his wife Kim Kardashian West and her family – for “soaking” in his fame and insisted his association with her meant no one else wanted to be with him.
He said: “She’s just soaking in the moment… If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be Amber Rose…
“It’s very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that’s with Amber Rose. I had to take like 30 showers before I got with Kim… Don’t ask me anymore, I wanna be respectful.”
The ‘FourFiveSeconds’ hitmaker – who has 19-month-old daughter North with Kim – believes his wife’s “power” stems from her body and has defended her recent naked photoshoots, including where she posed nude for Paper magazine in a bid to “break the internet”.
He said: “It’s important for her to stand up, I think, in all of her glory and power. Her power is in her body, in her nudity. Her power’s in her mind; her power’s in her family – but body is one of her powers…
“She’s gonna create a legacy… She can get naked if she wants to; it’s not illegal. Think about this, if Adam and Eve ate the apple, we’d all be naked.”
Kanye recently unveiled his new Yeezy Boost x Adidas Originals shoe collection and thinks his brand has been improved by his connection to his wife’s family name.
When asked whether he felt the Kardashian brand had hurt the Kanye brand on a business level, he replied: “No, it’s helped because it shows my ability to bridge the gap…
“I show people the power of what happens when you work together and now, Kim can sell a dress faster than any magazine cover.”
The 37-year-old rapper also praised his “smart” friend Tyga, 25, for getting in “early” with his 17-year-old sister-in-law Kylie Jenner.
He told Power 105’s The Breakfast Club: “I think he got in early; I think he was smart.
“They’re closer in age than a lot of relationships I know.”
