Kanye West and Amber Rose have had a rocky past to say the least, with an on/off romance, a nasty split, and now a long-running rivalry alongside his wife Kim Kardashian.
And it all came to a head last night as the pair descended into an explosive Twitter row.
Kanye began the feud with Wiz Khalifa – when Kim Kardashian’s other half decided to switch his album title from Swish to Waves.
Wiz made the point that hip hop artist Max B was the brains behind the ‘wavy movement’ with his lo-fi rap tunes in the mid-2000s.
Catching wind of his comments the following day, Kanye proceeded to take aim at Wiz in a series of mean-spirited tweets, some directed at Wiz’s ex wife and mother of his child Amber.
Of course, she didn’t hesitate laying into the star with a very vulgar response to the Twitter beef.
“Aww @Kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a*****e anymore? #FingersInTheBootyA******h,” she wrote. Blimey. There are no words.
The Black Skinhead star later deleted ALL his earlier tweets.
Now we take a look back at Kanye’s messy history with Amber Rose.
How did Kanye and Amber hook up?
Kanye West first saw Amber Rose after she appeared in Ludacris’ music video for ‘What Them Girls Like’ in 2008.
The rapper became a little obsessed with the music video star, who had also been a party girl and stripper.
Describing how she mistook Kanye for a prank caller and hung up on him, she told the New York Post:
“I was home in The Bronx, and he called me on my cellphone.
“I’d never met him before. He was like, ‘Hey, it’s Kanye.”
After Kanye called her back, the Gold Digger rapper then convinced her he was the real deal and asked her to fly to Los Angeles to star in his Robocop music video.
Unfortunately the video was never officially released, but snippets were leaked online.
Kanye lavished designer gifts on Amber and took her as his date to the Grammys
Kanye then asked for Amber to join him at the Grammys as his date, before they made it official.
Amber said that the couple “weren’t dating” but that she joined his family at the awards ceremony.
“We were still just friends, and we had never kissed or anything. I was in the back with his family,” she recalled.
“I didn’t sit in the audience. We didn’t do the red carpet or anything like that.”
Kanye also gifted Amber a Chanel bodysuit for the occasion, and she was awestruck by the way he treated her.
“I’d never had anyone go out and buy me a really expensive outfit,” Amber explained.
“When I told him I was an [exotic] dancer, he was like, ‘I don’t care if you’re a crackhead. I don’t care if you’re a prostitute. I just want to be with you.’ That’s what made me love him.”
Amber Rose and Kanye West were a striking item for two years, with the pair making waves in the fashion and music industry with their distinct style.
Amber, who now has one child with her ex Wiz Khalifa, was also accepted by Beyonce and Jay Z – flying to Paris with the powerful couple.
Being Kanye’s girl also saw Amber get signed to Ford Models and take on high profile campaigns.
Their relationship came to an end in 2010, and since then Amber has made several venomous attacks on Kim Kardashian, who is now Kanye’s wife.
Amber calls Kim a “homewrecker”
Amber famously branded Kanye a “homewrecker” alleging that the couple had an affair behind her back.
Speaking before Kim and Kanye tied the knot, Amber insisted that Kanye would never be faithful.
“He is your typical rapper in the industry,” Amber told The Post.
“He can’t be faithful, and it’s not just with one person. He’s just unfaithful with a lot of different women. I got to the point where I thought, my heart can’t take it anymore. I don’t deserve this.
“I don’t care when people say that I owe him my life because I’m famous now. I don’t owe him nothing.”
In an interview with Star magazine, Amber lashed out at Kim, as she said: Kim is one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together. She’s a homewrecker!”
The shaven-haired model also claimed that she went on to have a relationship with Kim’s ex, NFL star Reggie Bush.
At the time, Amber also claimed that Kim had instigated the relationship, as she said: “She was sending pictures, and I was like, ‘Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person,’” but Kim did not reply to the angry Amber.
“I thought at least she’d be woman enough to respond to me. She never responded.”
Khloe Kardashian and Amber Twitter fight
In February, the 31-year-old got into a Twitter bust-up of an epic nature after she gave her opinion on 25-year-old rapper Tyga’s relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner.
During her interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, she said: “That’s ridiculous. [Tyga] should be ashamed of himself. For sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old who just turned 17.”
Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe was furious with Amber’s comments, as she tweeted: “‘I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,’ Amber Rose told Foxx. Please don’t worry about my sister who has a career & her sh** together at ONLY 17. People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

Explaining her side of the story, Amber told: “I could have totally minded my own business when it came to her sister.
“But, me being a dancer at such a young age, dealing with older men gave me the humility and knowledge to speak on such a subject. [But] I can understand why it came across the wrong way to her. I get it. But, that’s a phone call she could have had with me.”
Kanye West needed ’30 showers’ before dating Kim
After hearing about Amber’s vitriolic rant about his wife, which happened in March last year, Kanye didn’t take it lying down.
In an interview on Power 105, Kanye didn’t hold back when talking about his bitter ex.
“She’s just soaking in the moment. Nobody feel compelled to do nothing.
“If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn’t be an Amber Rose, you know what I’m saying.”
The radio host went on to ask Kanye if what Amber said about Kim sending him saucy photos were true, to which he replied:
“I wish. Gladly, happily I would have liked to. By the way, it’s very hard for a woman to wanna be with someone that’s with Amber Rose.
“I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim.”
Amber blasted Kanye for his comments, as she told ETOnline: “We were happy when we were together! And now all of the sudden, I’m getting slut-shamed because we’re not together anymore and it’s not fair.”
Did Kanye message Amber before his lavish wedding?
Amber also claimed that Kanye had text her just TWO days before his lavish wedding to Kim.
In tweets which were posted after her showdown with Khloe Kardashian, Amber told Kim to get back to “pornhub”.
In a series of tweets on her official page, Amber wrote: “Do i also need to add that kanye was texting me 2 night before you’re “big wedding” lol. Kim get your ass back on pornhub…” before adding:
“Kanye west is also forgetting that kim married for 72 days just for fame and money. She used someone just to gain publicity.”
Has Kim found ‘intimate’ photos of Amber on Kanye’s computer?
Kim was reportedly left furious after discovering intimate pictures of Amber Rose on husband Kanye West ’s computer recently.
The pregnant reality star discovered the pictures after she caught her partner looking at his ex girlfriend’s Instagram page, according to Closer magazine.
A source told the magazine: “Kim found Kanye looking at Amber’s Instagram page and went ballistic. It’s really damaged her confidence. He told her she was being ridiculous.”
“She then went to his compute and found he still had old intimated pics and videos from their relationship. Kim was sobbing and confronted Kanye, telling him he had betrayed her, but her reassured her none of it was a big deal”
They added: “She feels insecure about her changing body and hates seeing Amber parading her amazing figure. She has told friends she sometimes feels like Amber is the third woman in their marriage and just wants something to be done to erase her out of their lives.”
A representative for Kim Kardashian has said that the report that Kim had found pictures of Amber was “absolutely false”.
