Amber Rose had an inkling that Kanye West’s marriage to The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian would end in divorce. Amber had already dated Kanye for two years prior to him falling in love with Kim in 2012. Despite their rocky history, Amber has shown her support for Kim and Kanye’s relationship. There was once upon a time when Amber feuded with Kanye and Kim after he dissed her with a remark many considered slut-shaming.
The year was 2015 and Kanye and Kim were fresh newlyweds madly in love one year after tying the knot. Kanye appeared for an interview with The Breakfast Club where he said he had to take “30 showers” after his 2010 breakup with Amber. The model shot back at Kanye by referencing Kim’s infamous 2007 sex tape with Ray J. Things ignited with Amber making claims about her past sexual exploits with Kanye. One year later, Kim and Amber posed for a selfie together to confirm the petty feud came to an end.
Considering Amber’s past with Kim and Kanye, she was bound to get asked to share her thoughts on their divorce. The Slutwalk creator appeared on Raquel Harper’s It’s Tricky podcast and said “of course” she saw Kim and Kanye’s divorce coming. “I always hope for the best for them,” Amber said. “I never had any ill feelings, like “I hope they get divorced” or “he’s going to get his day.“‘ While she noted that she has “issues and feelings” with Kanye’s behavior during their two-year relationship, Amber said she harbored no ill will toward him and Kim. Raquel noted the irony in Kim and Amber sharing the same birthday and said Amber might “understand” why the Gemini in Kanye couldn’t mesh with Libra Kim.
Other than sharing the same birthday, Amber says she and Kim are two very different people who come from different backgrounds. “I grew up poor in Philly, I had to hustle and struggle,” Amber said before noting how “privileged” Kim grew up in Los Angeles. Kim and Amber are both divorcees. Kim is a three-time divorcee and Amber was divorced once from rapper Wiz Khalifa. Amber shared her initial response to Kim and Kanye’s divorce. “When they finally got divorced, I was like “mmm,“‘ she said with a casual shrug before adding how “happy” Kim seems now with Pete Davidson. Kanye dated Amber from 2008 to 2010. She was by his side at the 2009 VMAs when he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift’s award speech.
Kanye spent nearly a decade with Kim after they started dating in 2012 and Kim filed for divorce in 2021. The Kardashians star has been enjoying her single but happily taken life with Pete. After getting declared legally single for a second time, Kim and Pete are still going strong. Kanye has dated different models. But he seems to be riding solo while adjusting to life as a co-parent with his ex-wife. Apparently, Amber saw all of this coming.
