Is Kanye West dating beauty influencer Jeffree Star amid divorce from Kim Kardashian?

Amid reports of reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West heading for a divorce, rumours of the duo dating other individuals have been doing rounds across social media.

Kanye has been linked to popular Youtuber, singer and beauty influencer Jeffree Star.

The rumour kicked-off after a TikTok user claimed that certain posts of Star suggest that he is hooking up with the Grammy winner, as reported by E News.

Jeffree had taken to social media and shared a picture captioned as "I'm ready for Sunday Service,” which refers to Kanye’s musical church services.

The beauty mogul shared a subsequent post stating, "I love these beautiful #Wyoming winter nights."

Wyoming is also the place Kanye is calling his home, living separately from the Kardashian clan.

Star quashed the rumours with an elaborate YouTube video titled “Addressing the Kanye Situation.”

The 35-year-old said, "I woke up and my phone was blowing up and I'm like, ‘Oh my God, what in the scandal is going on today?' I honestly had no idea, right?... I'm keeping to myself. I'm living in this beautiful state. I'm loving life."

"I'm single. I'm not sleeping with anyone. I like very tall men. Me and Kanye have never hung out, and this whole thing is really funny,” he added. Watch the video below.

According to pagesix.com, multiple sources said that "divorce is imminent" for Kimye, with Kardashian hiring divorce attorney to the stars, Laura Wasser.

"They are keeping it low-key but they are done. Kim has hired Laura Wasser and they are in settlement talks," said the source.

According to the portal, the reality TV star has not been seen wearing her wedding ring and that Kanye stayed at his USD 14 million Wyoming ranch over the holidays instead of spending time with the family.

"Kim got Kanye to go up there (Wyoming) so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She's done," the source said.

Meanwhile, a separate source said Kanye has become increasingly uncomfortable with the star lives of the Kardashians and "is completely over the entire family. he wants nothing to do with them".

The source added that he eventually found their reality show "unbearable".

Kanye had tweeted in July: "I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf for 'prison reform,'" seeming to refer to a criminal justice summit attended by Kim and rapper Meek Mill in November 2018.

He also called Kris Jenner "Kris Jong-Un" and said that the Kardashians were trying to force him into psychiatric treatment.

Kanye had reluctantly showed up for Kim's extravagant USD 1 million-plus 40th birthday in Tahiti last October for just one day.

"He showed up late and left early, he wouldn't appear in any of their Instagram shots. All he did was bring over the hologram of her father Robert Kardashian, then got out of there as fast as he could," the source said.

The source added that the biggest sticking point in the Kim and Kanye divorce settlement talks could be over their Calabasas, California, family home, which underwent a total redesign masterminded by Kanye and was heralded by Architectural Digest as "an oasis of purity and light."

The couple worked on the all-white, minimalist home with Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt.

They reportedly paid USD 40 million for the house and spent USD 20 million on renovations.

The source talked about the advanced settlement talks "This isn't the first time they've been talking about a split, but this time it is way, way more serious."

Another source confirmed to pagesix.com that divorce settlement talks were underway, but they were not yet at the point of deciding how their properties would be divided.

This will be Kim's third divorce. The couple walked down the aisle in 2014 in Italy.

They have four children -- daughter North, son Saint, daughter Chicago and son Psalm, 19 months.
