Brooke Crittendon, Kanye West's former girlfriend of two years, shed light on his somewhat puzzling relationship with Kim Kardashian, revealing that it's all a part of Kanye's brand. Brooke recently opened up to The Sun about her thoughts on Kanye and Kim's relationship.
"For Kanye, what other person besides Kim Kardashian is there? There's Halle Berry, J.Lo and Beyonce, but they are all taken. She fits into his brand. Part of being untouchable is having what other people want. It's about saying, 'Everybody wants her and she wants me.' That makes sense in Kanye's world."
Brooke also shared that she knew Kanye had a thing for Kim for some time, as he was talking about her after their break-up.
"I know he has had a thing with her for a while. I'm sure he watched her [sex] tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there ... Them being together satisfies them for now. Having a baby ticks a box. She wanted kids and it's his legacy."
Jay-Z undoubtedly has had a great impact on Kanye's life, and Brooke believes that Kanye's just following in Hov's footsteps with his relationship.
"He admires Jay-Z and they are very close. Over the years Jay has been a role model to him. Whether it is starting to be more mature, taking chances with clothes or getting married and starting a family, ultimately he takes those cues from Jay."
