While we’re still mourning the breakup of Kanye West and his muse Julia Fox (has anyone else been unable to get 'Uncut Gems' out of their head?), it seems the rapper has already moved on. Ye has now gone ‘Instagram official’ with a new leading lady after being papped with her on numerous occasions⁠—but just who is Kanye West’s girlfriend? 

The singer/rapper has really been hitting the headlines recently, what with the recent backlash over his Pete Davidson⁠ music video, and calling out Billie Eilish over what she said about Travis Scott, to. Ye has also been under fire for his many posts aimed at his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, who is currently dating SNL comedian Pete Davidson.

While his social media antics are capturing attention, we can't help but wonder about his very public love life. Following his brief fling with Julia Fox, who brought us that dramatic winged eyeliner trend, he appears to be besotted with a new love match, influencer Chaney Jones.

So who is Chaney Jones, is she Kanye West’s girlfriend, and what are all the latest deets on their romance? Buckle up, while we reveal all…

Who is Kanye West’s girlfriend, Chaney Jones?

Chaney Jones is a 24-year-old model and influencer with an impressive 300,000 Instagram followers. Her educational achievements are also seriously impressive. 

According to The Sun (opens in new tab), she graduated from the University of Delaware in 2020 with a major in elementary education and a minor in human development and family studies, and made it onto the Dean's List for three years running. 

Now she reportedly works as Chief Operating Officer of First State Behavioural Health, a counseling practise, and is currently studying for a master’s degree in counseling—alongside her influencing career.

Fans have also been unable to ignore how similar Jones looks to Ye's ex Kim—and we have to say, with the hourglass figure, dark hair, and monochrome clothing, we definitely see it...

How did Chaney and Kanye meet?

According to TMZ (opens in new tab), Jones slid into his DM’s and things ‘went from there.’ Though despite his appearance on Jones’ Instagram, they’re not yet official as sources claim West isn’t looking for a big commitment right now.

Jones however has hinted at being Ye’s new inspo⁠—captioning a series of selfies with “His Muse.” The post was a clear throwback to Julia Fox’s iconic response to being asked if she was Kanye’s muse: “Yeah, a little. Maybe. I mean, I was Josh Safdie’s muse when he wrote Uncut Gems”. Or, as the internet likes to say, “Unka Jaamz.”

The couple appear to be spending a lot of time together, with multiple paparazzi pictures posted of them daily out at dinners or shopping.

So far these two seem to be casually seeing each other—especially as Kanye is still publicly trying to get Kim Kardashian back, despite he now being declared legally single in their divorce saga.
