After a public breakdown and a low-profile stay in the Hamptons, Kanye West stayed mostly out of the spotlight, but for a brief moment, attention was back on him after Amanda Lepore, transgender model and club diva, wrote about a brief fling with an unnamed rapper in her memior — which led many to point their fingers toward West.
In “Doll Parts,” Lepore describes having an assignation with a famous rapper whose songs often play in the clubs she frequents,” The New York Times wrote. Soon after, she writes, he got married, and “I couldn’t help but think that his wife had a similar body type to me.”
Many fans wondered if the wife in question was Kim Kardashian-West, who is known for her hour-glass figure, like Lepore.
A source close to the rapper quickly denied the rumor, saying it was not “within the realm of possibility.”
The model has not yet responded to the rumors that West is the rapper in question.
Lepore’s memior, “Doll Parts,” came out on April 18. It details her unhappy childhood growing up in New Jersey, where she dreamed of ‘long blonde hair’ and Barbie dolls. The book follows her life before, during and after her sex-change procedure and how she conquered the New York club scene.
