In the midst of amplifying controversial views, including unsettling praise for Hitler, Kanye West found a new romance in Australian architect Bianca Censori. Their union, compared to West’s previous relationship with Kim Kardashian, appears notably unconventional.
Kate, a friend of Censori, revealed on the “Ben, Liam and Belle” show how West entered Censori’s life. He reached out to her on Instagram, offering her the position of Head of Architecture at Yeezy, signaling West’s foray into the realm of architecture. However, it’s not the architectural plans that have defined their connection, but rather the life they’re building together.
Censori swiftly became West’s muse in music, though the lyrics of his song “Censori Overload” don’t necessarily exude romance. Instead, they hint at his eagerness to wed. Their marriage initially sparked speculation due to a lack of legal paperwork, but it was later confirmed that they secured a confidential marriage license, solidifying their union on December 20, 2022. Once the secrecy lifted, their journey together took an even more eccentric turn.
During a romantic getaway in Italy in August 2023, West and Censori made headlines by wandering barefoot in public. Notably, West missed an opportunity to promote his sneaker designs. The couple even attended a concert shoeless, showcasing their unconventional style.
However, their Italian escapade wasn’t without controversy. A photo of West with his backside exposed led to a lifetime ban from a boat taxi company in Venice. Critics accused the couple of engaging in a “lewd act,” raising questions about indecent exposure. The company released a statement distancing themselves from the incident, declaring the couple unwelcome on their boats.
Friends of Censori expressed concerns that West is influencing her style to mimic Kim Kardashian. They worry he’s isolating her from her circle, a potential red flag. Reports suggest that West enforces certain rules, including restrictions on speech and dietary requirements. It’s a cause for concern, given the imbalance in expectations.
West has been instrumental in curating Censori’s wardrobe, even establishing an atelier for custom designs during their Italian excursion. Their hope is to inspire simplicity in fashion, although some critics interpret it as a unique take on fast fashion.
Amidst these developments, Australian officials have raised concerns about West’s past remarks, potentially affecting his ability to visit Censori’s childhood home in Melbourne. They point to his history of controversial statements as a potential barrier to entry into Australia.
