Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend/aspiring actress Brooke Crittendon, who dated the rapper from 2004 to 2006, recently opened up about her thoughts on West’s relationship with the “Queen of reality TV” Kim Kardashian.
Here’s what she had to say:
“What other person best besides Kim Kardashian is there for Kanye?. There’s Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, but they are all taken. She fits into his brand. Part of being untouchable is having what other people want. It’s about saying, ‘Everybody wants her and she wants me.’ That makes sense in Kanye’s world.”
She then added,
“I know he has had a thing for her, and I’m sure he has watched her [sex] tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there….. Them being together satisfies them for now. Having a baby ticks a box. She wanted kids and it’s his legacy.
“He admires Jay-Z and they are very close,” she told The Sun. “Over the years Jay has been a role model to him. Whether it is starting to be more mature, taking chances with clothes or getting married and starting a family, ultimately he takes those cues from Jay.”
Since their break up, the rapper dated former Video Vixen Amber Rose, who’s now engaged and pregnant for rapper Wiz Khalifa, before shacking up with Kim.
