Kanye West has broken up with his fiance, Alexis Phifer. The hip-hop star broke off the engagement being very vague in his reasoning and telling her that it simply wouldn’t work between the two. But breaking her heart wasn’t enough for Kanye. He had to also ask her for his ring back because with his millions, he can’t afford to just be giving away bling. From Black Voices,
“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 in
California, Phifer is working on a clothing line and has already designed some dresses that have been worn by artists like Lil’ Mo.
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. The couple broke up in 2004 and he began dating an executive assistant at MTV named Brooke Crittendon.
I guess Kanye has gotten over his heartfelt words (or not so much) after his mother’s passing in November. At that time he was all about forgetting his ego and paying attention to the things in life that are truly important and not being so worried about making money. I am actually very happy for Alexis that this has happened and I hope that she will be able to keep Kanye out of her life once and for all.
