Kanye West has been laying low in recent weeks, but he was spotted earlier this week on a dinner date with a mystery woman in Los Angeles.
TMZ got the secret photos, which see Ye sharing a meal with an unidentified blonde woman at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills on Monday (January 9).
Details are scarce on the reasoning behind the meeting, but Kanye has been spotted a few times recently at the same luxury hotel.
Some fans are floating the possibility that the mystery woman is a new boo, though Kanye seemed to get cozy with The Brazilian model Juliana Nalu late last year. Before Nalu, he dated a Miami-based model Chaney Jones in the spring of 2022, and she even had his name scratched on her.
These public appearances should quell the “missing” rumors that plagued Kanye West late last year. He was too allegedly seen in church last weekend when a photo of Ye listening to the sermon surfaced on social media.
Initial speculation that the Chicago native is MIA began to take off in December when his former business manager, Thomas St. John claimed he couldn’t be found after filing a lawsuit against Kanye West.
St. John said he and Kanye West began a professional relationship in March 2022, with West agreeing to pay him $300,000 a month to be his business manager and Chief Marketing Officer for the Donda brand.
The business relationship with Kanye West was all reportedly good until an “aggressive meeting” took place that led to the end of their partnership. He also accused Ye of not returning his messages.
Thomas St. John is now demanding $4.5 million in damageswhich includes payments for the months of July, August and September, as well as repayments for the remaining term of the breached agreement, which was due to expire in November 2023.
In the meantime Kanye’s nine-year-old daughter North West went viral last week with another TikTok, but this time she dressed up as Ye and used one Yeezus standout for soundtracking the clip.
The TikTok was posted on Kim and her daughter’s joint TikTok account, with North rocking a black hoodie with a fake beard, hairline and bushy eyebrows to encapsulate her father’s look.
