I’ve been hearing that Kanye West has a new “girlfriend” but I kind of thought it was bullsh-t. Kanye has apparently been seeing model Selita Ebanks for months now, allegedly. These photos are of Selita and Kanye last night at the New Yorkers for Children Fall Gala. Maybe they started dating right after he and Amber Rose split up, I don’t know. But I do know that Selita is a major upgrade from Amber – Selita is actually an established model with her own profile (who has already been engaged to one other high-profile man, Nick Cannon), and she doesn’t have to hustle with Kanye’s ego to get work. What the hell, then?
Kanye West has been known to easily jump from one beautiful lady to the next. But contrary to popular knowledge his latest muse Selita Eubanks has been around for almost a year.
A source close to West exclusively tells Entertainment Reporter LaShonda Matlock that “His ex-girlfriend Amber Rose was very aware of his budding new relationship with Selita towards the end of their relationship. Kanye has been with Selita for over eight-months now. And Kanye’s time in Hawaii was not alone, Selita was there.”
The source goes on to state that “Selita seems to be a good fit for Kanye” and that “Amber was leaking gossip and rumors about him to the media for a price.”
So now that numerous sightings of the low-key couple are appearing in Page Six, it’s no shocker that all the reports about the Eubanks changing West are for the positive. Page Six even went on to state today: “Selita Ebanks is Kanye West’s new muse. They’ve denied they’re dating, but Ebanks stuck close to West during the weeks he guest-edited XXL magazine’s October issue. She accompanied him to photo shoots and helped make page edits, insiders said.”

Eh. Sure. I mean, Kanye is gay, right? Or is he really hittin’ it with Amber and Selita and various women? Gay or straight, Kanye is one strange bird.
In other Kanye news, the announcement came out yesterday that he’ll be a musical guest star on Saturday Night Live. He’ll be on the second episode of the season, with guest Bryan Cranston (who I’m worried about – can he do live comedy?). This is newsworthy because in Kanye’s single “Power” he blasts SNL: “F— SNL and the whole cast. Tell ‘em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole a– / More specifically, they can kiss my a——.” Way to stick to your principles, Kanye.
