According to Page Six, the rapper has been ‘hooking up’ with the model but no timeline was given of when their relationship officially started. 

West and Vinetria took the romance public this weekend as they attended his Donda Academy’s debut basketball game in Minneapolis, where they were sitting together photographed courtside. 

The move comes just a week after Kanye stunned fans by voicing hopes of a reconciliation with estranged wife Kim Kardashian and denying he was divorced from the star, who is said to be dating SNL star Pete Davidson.  

On Thursday November 4, the Donda rapper opened up about his situation with Kim where he repeatedly referred to her as ‘my wife’ (in the present tense) during an appearance on Drink Champs.

‘SNL making my wife say, “I divorced him” on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off. And I ain’t never even seen the papers; we’re not even divorced. That ain’t no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want … us to be together.’

One week on, Kanye and Vinetria looked very much like a couple as they sat side by side at his Donda basketball game in Minnesota on Saturday evening. 

Vinetria was also reportedly with the rapper in Miami last month when he filmed his Drink Champs interview (though it was only released on November 4), during which he said Kim Kardashian ‘is still my wife’ and added that he had not seen any divorce papers.

Continuing to take their romance nationwide, the model was in attendance at his October 31 Sunday Service, and shared footage to her Instagram. 

His romance with Vinetria comes just months after he was linked to supermodel Irina Shayk beginning in March — just one month after Kardashian filed for divorce after seven years of marriage. 

Their romance lasted until August, with a PEOPLE source saying that ‘it was never a serious thing that took off,’ and that West did not have bandwidth to be dating.
