Amber Rose has opened up about her split from Kanye West, saying she was left heartbroken. The 33-year-old model and rapper, 40, dated for two years before breaking up in 2010.
Since their split they’ve had a number of very public Twitter spats – including one where Kim Kardashian’s husband took aim at Amber’s young son Sebastian who she has with rapper Wiz Khalifa.
“You let a stripper trap you,” he tweeted to Amber’s ex Wiz. “I know you mad every time you look at your child, that this girl got you for 18 years.”
Speaking to Complex’s Everyday Struggle talk show about their history, she said: “I see this a lot on the internet: Amber’s going to hurt him. I have been the one that has been heartbroken. I have never cheated on any of my boyfriends.”
She continued: “I still have never said anything mean about Kanye. This is after six, seven years of constant bullying from him. You don’t say that about my baby. I was quiet for so long.”
Amber went on: “The only thing I got from him was fame. I had to just take that [loss],” she continued. “I had to take that heartbreak on top of it.”
The pair’s rollercoaster relationship inspired Kanye’s Grammy-winning 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
“It’s a great part of history and it’s a great part of hip-hop, and I’m happy to be a part of it, but during that time was not a great time for me,” she said of the record.
“I’m famous, and I’m broke. I can’t date anyone else. I can’t say anything on the internet because Kanye has such a voice. If I was going to kill myself, I would have done it during those times.”
