While neither will confirm romance speculation, Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West and alleged new girlfriend Kim Kardashian were spotted together this weekend in New York City.

Smiling at photographers, Kim and Kanye spent Saturday (April 21) shopping in the Big Apple.

Keeping Up With Kimye! Kim Kardashian and her new beau Kanye West made their second appearance as a couple during another shopping trip in New York City Saturday. Decked out in leather pants, heels and a Celine bag, the reality star, 31, and the rapper, 34, browsed the racks at Balenciaga and made a stop at the popular Van Leeuwenhoek ice cream truck. "They had drinks at the Mercer Hotel Friday night, then shopped all day," a source tells Us Weekly. And it sounded like Kardashian was having a great time. "Hi dolls! I'm so happy to be in NYC with the whole fam! Fun week! Have a good weekend guys!" she wrote to her followers on Twitter. (Us Magazine)

A few days ago, Yeezy refuted claims suggesting he donned Kardashian his own version of Grammy winner Beyonce Knowles-Carter.

"...of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the 'She's my Beyonce' quote. I would never compare anyone to my friend's wife," West tells Us Weekly exclusively. "Come on now, that doesn't even sound like me," says West, who is a longtime pal and collaborator of Beyonce's husband Jay-Z. "If I don't say something in a rap or on Twitter, it's not true," the "Otis" rapper tells Us. (Us Weekly)

Recent reports suggested Kanye blessed Kim with the accolade.

Kanye West has said and done a lot of crazy things over the years. But there's one thing that's "Way Too Cold" even for him: comparing his budding relationship with reality TV staple Kim Kardashian to the long-running romance of good pal and Throne mate Jay-Z with wife Beyoncé. West, who has kept a near-total media blackout over the past few years, broke that silence on Tuesday (April 17) to US Magazine, to deny ever referring to Kardashian as "my Beyoncé." (MTV)

As of late, the platinum-selling rapper has been spotted on numerous occasions with the curvy- Kardashian.
