Details of Rose and Ford's split ties hit the Internet in late December.
Amber Rose is undoubtedly best-known for having dated Kanye West. During their relationship, her "modeling career" was managed by Ford Models, one of the top agencies in the industry. But it seems now that her relationship with Kanye has run its course, so has her partnership with Ford. The agency told the NY Post they no longer represent Amber. It's unknown who her new agency is, or if she even has one, but someone is definitely negotiating deals for her. (Style Bistro)
Although separated, the model is reportedly working on a new reality television series.
It seems that Rose, whose fame began when she would escort her now ex-boyfriend Kanye West to fashion shows wearing all manner of latex ensembles, is working on a reality show called "Behind Her Shades", about a vintage sunglasses store in Las Vegas. (New York Mag)
After helping launch Rose's career by featuring her in his 2008 music video for "What Them Girls Like", Ludacris talked to SOHH about the model's industry success.
"I think it's great," Luda told SOHH in July 2009. "I always love seeing someone come from -- just trying to see their dreams come true. There's nothing wrong with it for me. I'm glad to have had her in the video. I think she got signed to a modeling agency or something so I think she's extremely innovative to have that kind of confidence. I think it's a great thing because she sets herself apart from a lot of women just by her haircut. She wears it with the utmost confidence and that's a great thing. I think she deserves any modeling contract that she's gotten because she has her own unique look and a great sense of style." (SOHH)
