In the latest turn of Yevents, Kanye West has apparently ‘married’ a Yeezy employee despite it being just two months since the finalisation of his divorce with Kim Kardashian.
The rapper, who has been through a string of controversies as of late, has been spotted wearing a wedding band matching that of Yeezy employee Bianca Censori, and the two allegedly tied the knot in a private ceremony.
However, in a weird turn of events, the marriage appears to not be legally valid, because the pair have yet to file an official wedding certificate.
But Ye, 45, seems pretty serious about Censori, having released a track in tribute to her (named “Censori Overload”) last month - how very Kanye.
27-year-old Censori, who works at Yeezy as the Head of Architecture, also happens to be the spitting image of Kim. The man’s got a type. But here’s everything we know about Kanye’s mysterious new wife and their relationship.
She has worked at Yeezy for years
Not much is known about Censori or how long she has been dating Ye, but it is confirmed that she joined Yeezy in November 2020, and she currently works there as the Head of Architecture, so they must have met around then.
Censori has a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Architecture from the University of Melbourne in Australia, and she’s worked in smaller architecture roles before Yeezy.
Kanye laid out plans to launch an architecture arm of Yeezy in 2018, tweeting at the time: "We're starting a Yeezy architecture arm called Yeezy home [...] We're looking for architects and industrial designers who want to make the world better."
Well, clearly Censori made Ye’s world better, because the two are looking very committed, and very early...
They can’t have been together for that long
If we take a look at Kanye’s tumultuous dating life since his split with Kim, he’s most notably dated Julia Fox in early 2022 - though she famously told ES Magazine that she dumped him “At the first sign of a red flag,” noting that his lifestyle “wasn’t sustainable.”
More recently, Kanye has been linked to 24-year-old model Juliana Nalu, who was more than 20 years his junior. The two were reported to be dating in October 2022 - just three months ago - and were seen kissing on the set of her photoshoot. However, the relationship was shortlived, with Nalu announcing on Instagram that she was a single woman by December.
In theory, this means that Kanye and ‘wife’ Bianca Censori could have been dating for as little as a month.
Kanye alluded to their marriage in a recent song
Kanye goes through many phases - his most recent, Nazism, seems to have really taken root - but the rapper has stayed loyal to one thing through his many emotional and mental ups and downs: God. He has formed his own choir, held his ‘Donda’ album listening party in a chapel, and regularly attends church. In fact, to add another level to this month of madness, there were claims that Ye was ‘missing’ last month, which were immediately quashed when he turned up in church.
So it makes sense that his song in tribute to his new dearly beloved would feature God, heavily. It even alluded to their marriage - despite having been released a month ago (and days after Juliana Nalu confirmed her and Kanye’s split). In the lyrics, Ye says: “And The Bible said, I can’t have any more sex til marriage.”
He does also mention a recent breakup - “Waking up to ‘I can’t do this anymore’ text [...] I know it’s 'cause the headlines / Why she wanna leave” - though it’s unclear if this is about Nalu, Kardashian, or even Fox.
However, Censori seems far from overloaded, and is sticking close to the rapper and her new apparent ‘husband’. Who knows if Kanye will ever get round to filing that marriage certificate, though.
