A report by Page Six suggested that Kanye and Kim Kardashian, who are parents to four children together, are getting a divorce after so many years of being married.
Kanye is trending all over social media and many of his fans are interested to learn who he dated in the past.
The rapper was in a long-term relationship with Alexis Phifer but who exactly is she?
Who is Alexis Phifer?
Alexis Phifer is a fashion designer and stylist.
She is the designer and curator behind the clothing company A-Threads which is described as an “all-inclusive brand” made in Los Angeles.
In a 2011 interview, Alexis opened up about the lessons she learned from working in the entertainment industry. She said:
“I’ve learned that no matter what, you always have to be yourself and hold your head up high and have respect for yourself. I’ve learned that the industry can get a bad rep, but if you’re able to be around certain people and experience new things, just take it as something that’s good and learn from it and be inspired by it because there is definitely inspiration. And about being in a high profile relationship… just keep your business to yourself.”
