First Foxy Brown and now this? Why Kanye and Alexis? Why?!?!?!? I just put you up on “The Great Wall of Sexy?” Why are you denying me the opportunity to make jokes about you getting married dressed like Max Headroom while strolling down the aisle to a Daft Punk/Justice remix of the wedding march?
Rapper Kanye West and his fiancée of a year and a half, designer Alexis Phifer have broken off their engagement, Phifer confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
“It’s always sad when things like this end, and we remain friends,” Phifer tells PEOPLE. “I wish him the best in his future and all of his endeavors. He’s one of the most talented people I’ve ever met.”
I can’t say I’m surprised this happened. Kanye’s mother died suddenly last year. Even though he’s been a trooper, working, recording and crashing award shows he has not been his usual insane drama queen self. Save for getting a little pissy about not getting into all the fashion shows in Paris this winter, he’s been a mere shadow of his former ridiculous self.
So between depression and a hectic pop star work schedule things didn’t bode well for the relationship. I was hoping it would work out because my dark heart springs eternal for true love, but I can see how it might not have worked out as planned.
At least Jay and Beyonce made it through the fire and down the alter. Thank God. I’ll always have their love to ruse.
