Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West has confirmed recent speculation that his relationship with girlfriend Amber Rose has finally come to an end.
Speaking with New York radio host Angie Martinez, West opened up about his two-year run with Rose.
"Yeah man, it was an amazing time and it came to an end," West said. "One of the greatest things that she showed me was just to be a nicer person because she was so disconnected from the concept of celebrity when I first met her...A celebrity could be talking to people crazy and everyone's used to it at the label like, 'He's wildin' out. It doesn't matter.' [Amber] be like, 'What?! You just talked to your fans so crazy right now. I'm not even talking to you right now.' ... I grew from that. I think that was the greatest growth that I got from that experience...My goal in life is to really have an amazing woman and have a family, but I think I had to go through these different things to grow...That was a one-off...I'm not trying to dive into anything unless I really, really think that I can marry this person. I look at this person and I say, 'This is how I want my daughter to be.'" (Hot 97)
Details on their break-up hit the Internet in early July.
"They are still good friends," a source tells Us. "Kanye is consumed with recording his comeback record in Hawaii and had to shut it all off. When he's in work mode, he can't handle a relationship. He told Amber he needs to devote everything right now to his craft.... I wouldn't say it's over for good [for West and Rose.] It's always off-and-on when it's convenient for these two. He doesn't go out anymore and she loves it, so he lets her." (Us Magazine)
Rose is currently being linked with reality star Kim Kardashian's ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush.
Football star Reggie Bush reportedly has a new tight end. The Saints running back and ex-flame of Kim Kardashian was spotted getting cozy with Kanye West's former gal pal Amber Rose at AXE Lounge in Southampton over the weekend. "They even took bathroom breaks together," reported PerezHilton.com (New York Daily News)
Rose recently discussed her admiration for West.
"Honestly, Kanye saved my life, and I don't even think about what I would have been. I just think about what I'm going be,'" she said in an interview. "I don't look at myself as [a celebrity]. I'm just a dope chick from South Philly! I mean, it's crazy when fans come up to me and cry and just want a hug from me.'" (Monsters & Critics)
