Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has opened up about girlfriend/model Amber Rose's recent public feud with VIBE magazine over retracted published statements.
Despite the back-and-forth exchanges, Khalifa said he ultimately stands by Rose's side.
There is no doubt some fans at Khalifa's performances will be looking for an Amber Rose sighting. His model girlfriend Rose, whom he referred to as his wife in this interview, made headlines recently for retracting her Vibe cover-story interview, particularly as it relates to comments about her ex, Kanye West. "The whole Vibe situation is unfortunate," Khalifa says. "But I stand by my wife as far as her feelings, and let her discuss what the specifics are. (Seattle Times)
Within the published summer cover story feature, Rose addressed her non-interest in hooking back up with ex-boyfriend/rapper Kanye West.
"People think me and Kanye are enemies, and we are not enemies. He wants the best for me, still," she said in the magazine. "Let me say this: I still love Kanye. I will always love him as a person. I will always love him for what he's done for me. I still always have that soft spot in my heart for him. I am not in love with him. I do not look at him in a sexual way anymore. I'm in love with someone else. I still love him as a person and want him to find happiness like I did. Everyone deserves that." (VIBE)
Following the published piece, Rose called out VIBE.
"Just read "my" interview in @VibeMagazine half of the story was untrue & ridiculous!," she wrote May 28th.
"F##K that Cover F##K @VibeMagazine yall wrote a bunch of negative bullsh*t that I never said or did."
"Yall don't give a f*ck that I have a Mom & Family thats gonna read that fake a** sh*t I gave yall a truthful interview & Yall f##ked me."
"I'm so sick of keeping my mouth shut I didn't ask for this life it was handed to me I was nothing but nice to everyone I spoke to @ Vibe" (Amber Rose's Twitter)
The magazine's editor in chief Jermaine Hall countered by releasing an open statement.
"As we're sure you've heard, Amber Rose has expressed some displeasure with VIBE's June/July cover story. VIBE stands by the accuracy and reporting of the narrative. We invite you to form your own opinion, however. The Sexy Issue hits 'stands nationwide June 7." (Statement)
