Kanye West’s officially a single man, but does that mean his estranged wife will take this as an opportunity to get back together with him? For now, Kim Kardashian’s response to Kanye’s breakup to model Vinetria seems to suggest otherwise.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum, who filed for divorce from the Yeezy founder in February 2021 after nearly seven years of marriage, is reportedly “surprised” that he wants to get back together with her at this point. The SKIMS founder, 41, has already moved on with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, 28. Not to mention, the reality star recently filed court documents requesting to be declared legally single from Kanye. Despite her filing, the rapper still seems to be making moves to win her back — including breaking up with his 22-year-old girlfriend, Vinetria.
“Kim knows Kanye is a good person and [she] respects him,” a source told Us Weekly yesterday (December 22). “She was surprised by his comments about wanting to get back together.”
News of Kanye and Vinetria’s split first broke on Tuesday this week, after a few months of casual dating. Kanye also unfollowed Vinetria on Instagram following their split. The pair were first publicly linked in November 2021, after a source told Page Six that the Yeezy founder had been “hooking up with” Vinetria “for a while now.” The pair debuted their relationship early that month when attending the rapper’s Donda Academy debut basketball game together in Minneapolis.
While Kanye is now single, Kim’s boyfriend Pete “is not worried about Kanye” in the slightest. “He’s very laid-back and understanding,” Us Weekly‘s source adds, noting, “Pete’s mom really likes Kim and thinks she’s very sweet. Kim and Pete are still having fun, but things are really heating up.”
Earlier this month, Kim requested for her last name to be restored and to be declared legally single, claiming in court docs that there was “no possibility of saving” her marriage. “The parties’ marriage has irremediably broken down. [Kardashian] no longer desires to be married to [West],” the paperwork stated. “There is no question that the marriage of the parties is no longer viable. … [West] and I both deserve the opportunity to build new lives.”
