Controversial rapper/producer Kanye West is once again made headlines for another romance rumor, now reportedly linked 18-year-old model.
West was recently spotted with his alleged new girlfriend at a Los Angeles event.
Kanye West has set his sights on yet another gorgeous model -- blond Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue beauty Kate Upton. The star was spotted sneaking in the back door at the Victoria's Secret VIP Swim event at Club L in Los Angeles at 11:30 p.m. and sitting with impossibly attractive Upton. A spy reports the two were seen flirting and left hand-in-hand through the back door to avoid paparazzi around 12:30 a.m. Also at the bash was Miranda Kerr, who showed she was back to supermodel form after giving birth just three months ago.

Last year, West was engaged in rumors claiming he was dating fashion model Selita Ebanks.
Last night, at the New Yorkers for Children Gala in NYC, Selita Ebanks denied to reporters that she's dating Kanye West. "I'm just happy that he's a great friend," she told reporters at the gala, which she hosted. "No, no, no" she said when asked if their US Open appearance was a date. Even though she said they're just friends, she's certainly passionate about why she loves him, "I love his creativity. I love that he thinks outside the box. He's just himself. Not only am I a fan, I support him 100 percent." (OK Magazine)
West was also previously linked to ex-Pussycat Doll singer Melody Thornton.
Kanye West has started seeing former Pussycat Dolls star Melody Thornton. The singer confirmed the romance on her blog on Saturday by posting a picture of her with the rapper and with designer Karl Lagerfeld at New York Fashion Week. 'Can you guess which one is my new "boyfriend"?' she writes. Kanye, 33, and Melody, 25, are thought to have been dating for a couple of weeks. (Now Magazine)
In summer 2010, the rap star discussed his two-year run with model Amber 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." (Hot 97)
