His ex Kim Kardashian is rumoured to be romancing her SNL co-star Pete Davidson and it seems the rapper formerly known as Kanye West is getting along in the dating world too. 

The 44 year-old artist, who now answers to Ye, is reportedly seeing a social media model who goes by the name Vinetria (22).

This comes months after whatever happened between him and Russian-born stunner Irina Shayk fizzled out. They were just friends, apparently. 

Pictures and videos of Ye and Vinetria recently surfaced online after they were spotted sitting courtside at the debut Donda Academy basketball game in Minneapolis. The academy, named after Ye's 10th studio album (and his late mother), is part of the Flashing Lights rapper’s plans to expand into education and open his own school. 

Sources told US news outlet Page Six that Ye has been hooking up with Vinetria for a while now. The brunette beauty was also reportedly with the artist while he filmed an episode of the now viral weekly podcast Drink Champs. 

During the boozy conversation, hosted by legendary Queens rapper N.O.R.E. and Miami DJ EFN, nothing was off limits as Ye took shots with the hosts. 

While Venetria was reportedly with him at the time, Kanye reminded listeners that he’s still legally married to Kim, the mother of his four kids, North (8), Saint (5), Chicago (3), and Psalm, (2). 

“SNL making my wife say ‘I divorced him’ on TV because they just wanted to get that bar off, and I never have seen the papers,” he said. “We’re not even divorced … [It’s] no joke to me. My kids want their parents to stay together. I want their parents — I want us to be together.” 

“They want it to be a new wedding, a new episode, a new TV show,” he said.

Meanwhile, the 20-something, who’s signed to Public Image Management agency and has appeared in several high fashion shoots, seemed unfazed as she sat beside the father of four at the match. 

Sources close to Kim and Ye believe he isn't a fan of the headlines his ex has been making recently. 

“Everybody in the family is worried about how Kanye will react to Kim spending so much time with Pete,” one source told Page Six. “Kanye recently said he still wants to be with her, so he can’t be taking this well.”
