Kanye West — who legally changed his name to Ye last year — is apparently “still pursuing” Kim Kardashian despite very publicly moving on from his marriage with Uncut Gems actor Julia Fox.
Julia confirmed their whirlwind romance with a detailed blog post last week after they met in Miami on New Year’s Eve. She said that Ye had surprised her with a “hotel suite full of clothes” on their second date — and even “directed an entire photoshoot” by snapping photos of her in the middle of her favorite New York restaurant while other diners “cheered.”
He spent the rest of the month suggesting that he and Kim were going to reunite in various interviews, as well as admitting to doing things that were "not acceptable" during their marriage.
Then in December, Ye reworked the lyrics of his 2010 hit “Runaway” during a Los Angeles concert, begging Kim to give their marriage another go as he sang: “I need you to run right back to me, baby,” before adding, “more specifically, Kimberly.”
This petition appeared to be the turning point for Ye, who reportedly decided to start “embracing the single life” as he was spotted hanging out with multiple different women over the festive season.
But he quickly settled his sights on Julia after their New Year’s Eve meeting — even though Page Six reports that he only went to Miami that night in the hopes of bumping into Kim, who originally planned to be there with Pete.
The publication goes on to say that Ye then caught wind of Kim and Pete’s January vacation, which was originally planned for the Dominican Republic but Kim changed the location to avoid her ex-husband.
A source said: “Kim had planned to go to the Dominican Republic with Pete just after New Year, but Kanye somehow got wind of it, and so she secretly changed the destination to the Bahamas.”
