Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend/ex-fiancee, Brooke Crittendon, shed light on her thoughts about Kanye’s relationship with Kim Kardashian, and how it serves to give more life to his brand. Check out what she had to say:
Brook, an aspiring actress who dated Kanye from 2004 to 2006, talked some serious smack about her former lover of more than two years, calling him insecure, “not macho” and “vulnerable” in The Sun.
Her thoughts about Ye dating Kim K. She said:
“For Kanye, what other person besides Kim Kardashian is there? There’s Halle Berry, J.Lo and Beyonce, but they are all taken. She fits into his brand. Part of being untouchable is having what other people want. It’s about saying, ‘Everybody wants her and she wants me.’ That makes sense in Kanye’s world.”
And she confirmed ‘Ye’s been eyeing the sextape star turned self-loving reality star for a minute now:
“I know he has had a thing with her for a while. I’m sure he watched her [sex] tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there … Them being together satisfies them for now. Having a baby ticks a box. She wanted kids and it’s his legacy.”
Brooke also credited Jay-Z with having a huge influence on Kanye settling down with Kim.
“He admires Jay-Z and they are very close. Over the years Jay has been a role model to him. Whether it is starting to be more mature, taking chances with clothes or getting married and starting a family, ultimately he takes those cues from Jay.”
She admitted that dating Mr. West had its perks.
“By day I was working in an office (she was a production assistant at MTV) and in the evening this fairy godmother would arrive and I’d have all these amazing experiences. It was like a two-year trip to Disneyland. Our first anniversary was the first day of his tour in Miami. After the show we went back to our suite and there were hundreds of roses and the orchestra section from his concert were in there playing the song, It’s Our Anniversary, by Tony! Toni! Tone!”
Brook says that Kanye is vulnerable and insecure:
“He was not macho — he needed you to be with him and needed your opinion. He was quite vulnerable. He was insecure as he couldn’t be with me every day. I got the impression he worried he wasn’t good enough for me. He needs people to tell him he is good and that he is needed and wanted. He wouldn’t start his show unless I was at the side of the stage. One night the show was delayed because he couldn’t find me.”
Brooke said his cheating is what led to their breakup.
“I was very naive. I was a normal girl and in my life you meet a guy, you go on three dates and that’s your boyfriend. But he was a superstar and it got too much for me to handle. There was a lot of attention from other women. Kanye was very open and honest but it ended up with me knowing too much. I don’t want to be silly and say it wasn’t cheating because I knew about it. I was never OK being one of many — or even one of a few.”
