In news that will undoubtedly have you waving your fist at the sky and weeping for the future of romance, Kanye West is rumored to be cheating on Kim Kardashian. “Yeah yeah, what else is new?” you’re probably asking me. It’s not like it’s the first time we’ve heard rumors like this… about anyone, really. If you’re working in Hollywood and you haven’t had a cheating rumor associated with you, you’re nobody. Except the important part of this new rumor is that the alleged other woman is just 17 years old.
Her name is Pia Mia, and she’s a rising star for whom Kanye is producing tracks. According to Radar Online‘s sources last month, Kim is “jealous” of their relationship and their allegedly “flirty” conversations, even though Kanye insists it’s just creative. So why are we talking about this now? Because Pia posted an Instagram photo with a cryptic message at the end of last week suggesting she knows a little something about cheating: “@TheOtherWomanMovie trailer…story of my life. Guna be so hilarious! #OtherWoman #sp.”
Gee, I wonder what that could mean? Well, of course Hollywood Life frets that Kimye is dead. But if you’re not so ready to accept the idea of Kanye hooking up with an underage girl, there are plenty of ways to interpret it. She could be playing into the rumors to get attention for herself. Or you could interpret it as referring to another situation in which “other woman” would apply, hopefully with a more age-appropriate man. Or maybe she just means Cameron Diaz wears a shirt in the movie that she also owns and wears a lot — story of her life!
Oooor maybe Kanye started these rumors and it’s all part of a big publicity stunt/performance art piece a la James Franco. James claims Kanye called him up like an old pal, so maybe he gave him some tips about “dating” teenage girls. Any explanation that doesn’t involve Kanye West actually hooking up with a teenager would be greatly appreciated.
