Kanye West and Chaney Jones are off to Japan.
The 24-year-old model shared a sweet photo of herself with the 44-year-old Grammy winner as they stood on a bridge overlooking Tokyo’s famous high-end street, Omotesandō. Based on the photo, she was resting her head on his shoulder while he looks ahead.
The couple was also photographed by fans as they roamed around the streets of Shibuya near Harajuku street. Strict travel restrictions are still imposed in Japan. Though travel for tourism isn’t yet permitted, U.S. citizens are allowed to enter but on a very limited basis only. However, Bloomberg reported that Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said he’ll loosen virus-related border controls next month.
Kanye and Chaney first sparked romance rumors after they were spotted shopping at Bal Harbour in Miami last February. Their outing came after his estranged wife Kim Kardashian filed some new court documents amid their ongoing divorce. The Donda artist seemed to have confirmed their romance in March on Instagram after he commented on their pics with a black heart emoji.
They’ve been spotted together several times. In March, they went to a Los Angeles Lakers game and last month, she congratulated him for winning best melodic rap performance and best rap song at the Grammys.
Kanye was in a relationship with Julia Fox before he started seeing the model. He and the 32-year-old actress were in a whirlwind romance which started at the beginning of the year until February. The two remain good friends and collaborators.
The actress told The New York Times, “I tried my best to make it work. I already had a jam-packed life. How do I fit this really big personality into this already full life? It just wasn’t sustainable. I lost like 15 lbs. in that month.”
So were they ever “boyfriend” and “girlfriend”? She said, “I don’t think those words ever came out of my mouth, actually. It definitely felt like I was his girlfriend. But it also felt like I was being cast in the role of his girlfriend — and he was casting me. He was the orchestrator of it all. It really did feel like a movie.”
Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye in February last year. In March, a judge ruled the 41-year-old SKIMS mogul as legally single.
