Kanye West is currently in the middle of divorce proceedings with Kim Kardashian following nearly seven years of marriage. But this hasn’t kept him from thinking about whom he would like to date next.
A source told Page Six about what Kanye is looking for in his next relationship. The source claims Kanye wants to be “with an artist and creative person.” Why? So the two of them “can speak the same language to each other.”
On paper, this sounds pretty straightforward. As a creative person and famous musician, it’s only natural that Kanye would want someone who shares the same creative vibe. But considering that he previously told GQ that he was “unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time,” some fans are wondering if Kanye could ever consider himself an equal with a future romantic partner.
If Kanye ended up dating an artist, it would be a departure from his typical love life. Before marrying Kim Kardashian, he dated models such as Chanel Iman and Amber Rose. The most artistic person Kanye was with was arguably designer Alexis Phifer. The two were engaged in 2006, but broke things off in 2008.
But what is Kim Kardashian looking for in her next relationship? The same source told Page Six that Kim isn’t really that interested in romance right now. Instead, she is focused on “remaking her image as a devoted mother.” Beyond that, the source says Kim is looking to “eventually enter politics.”
And it might not be as far-fetched as some think. In a post-Trump world, Kim’s experience as a reality TV star and entrepreneur may open many doors. And we can only assume her future political endeavors will be less dramatic than Kanye’s failed 2020 run for presidency, which strained his relationship with Kim and ultimately set the stage for their divorce.
Right now, Kanye and Kim are knee-deep in settling the issue of their divorce. In their court papers, both have asked for joint physical and legal custody of their children and for the judge to terminate the court’s right to award spousal support.
But once this divorce is in their rearview mirror, fans everywhere are looking forward to the next stage of Kim and Kanye’s separate romantic journeys.
