New York Knicks superstar Amar’e Stoudemire has addressed speculation connecting him with former Kanye West girlfriend/model Amber Rose.
Despite being photographed together at a recent late night event, the basketball star said he views Rose as a close friend for now.
“I mean, we friends,” Amar’e told radio host Angie Martinez when asked about his relationship with Rose. “We’re pretty good friends. She’s a buddy of mine. It all depends on what you call dating. I think we’re not dating, we’re friends. We’re buddies, we’re mutual friends. She’s a cool girl to talk to. I’m pretty sure she feels the same way about myself. [Engagement rumors?] That’s totally not true. No fiancee. No boo. No wifey. None of that. Hopefully one day. But I do got kids and a baby’s mama. We’re friends…” (Hot 97)
A few days ago, Rose was romantically linked to rapper Wiz Khalifa.
It looks like Amber Rose is quite popular amongst hip-hop’s top rappers. Spotted over at Karen Civil, a video of Amber walking down the Los Angeles streets with Wiz Khalifa and it raises the question: Are these two more than friends? Amber has been linked to rappers Fabolous and Kanye West, so getting up with Wiz wouldn’t be a shocker. However, these two have been in touch for a while now–when Wiz was shooting his “Black and Yellow” remix video, Amber was hanging out with him. She even tweeted they may be working together.

Prior to Amar’e and Wiz, Rose was rumored to be dating Fabolous.
We have a feeling Kanye West’s ex, bald beauty Amber Rose, won’t be too jealous of Melody Thornton, despite Rose’s breakup with Kanye this summer. After a rumored summer fling with New Orleans Saint Reggie Bush, the model found another trophy fish in the hip-hop gene pool: rapper Fabolous. Rose and Fab haven’t advertised their romance, either, but one nightlife-loving source spied the duo at Juliet Supper Club in Chelsea on Monday morning. They arrived together at 1 a.m. with two other friends, but left separately: Rose at around 3 a.m., Fab shortly before 4. (New York Daily News)
Last summer, Kanye West confirmed his break-up with Rose after a speculated two years together.
“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)
