Kanye West and his fiancé Alexis Phifer weren’t ever on the same level as Fantasia + Young Dro in my book but I always thought they complimented each other well. Not to mention she wasn’t as thirsty for attention as that Brooke girl he was smashing on a couple of years ago.
Word on the curb is that the couple have called it quits.
Sources close to the hip-hop star tell me that it was West who ended the engagement after revealing to Phifer: “I just don’t think it is going to work out anymore.”
The 30-year-old entertainer even asked for his ring back!
The often-controversial rapper/producer got engaged to Phifer while overseas in the fall of 2006.
The two met when Phifer worked as the assistant to West’s fulltime wardrobe stylist.
A graduate from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in California, Phifer is working on a clothing line and has already designed some dresses that have been worn by artists like Lil’ Mo. [Insert side-eye. - - Fresh]
Sources close to the couple claim she was also helping West develop his forthcoming Pastelle clothing line. The Chicago-raised rapper had been dating Phifer on and off since 2002.
I was looking forward to watching homegirl step in the name of love down the aisle in a mean Vera Wang gown. Oh, and I’m almost positive that Alexis would have looked nice too. Just joking! Don’t take me off the blogroll, Kanye.
