Kanye West has got a new love interest. The rapper has been enjoying a new romance in recent weeks with Juliana Nalu. The two have been spotted on multiple dates. Their most recent outing comes on the set of a photoshoot in LA. Kanye and Nalu also showed a PDA. The couple was spotted locking lips in a passionate embrace in the carpark.
The rapper, who is currently embroiled in controversy for his repeated anti-semitic rants, most recently enjoyed an evening out in Beverly Hills where Juliana was seen leaving a restaurant carrying two red roses. However, fans must want to know about Kanye West’s new girlfriend Juliana Nalu. Juliana hails from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil and has been modelling since her teens.
Juliana was first told by her mother she wanted to become a model at age six and was selected to be part of the L’Oreal Brazil campaign when she was 18. The following year, she flew to Los Angeles and signed with the top modelling agency Elite Models. However, in a previous interview with Latina magazine, Juliana spoke about her ambitions and credited her mother with helping her get to where she is.
Speaking about her pride in coming from Rio, she shared, “I want the world to see a Brazilian from Rio, the favelas. Good things exist there. So, for the next girls who come after me, the [industry] will be more open.” Juliana appears to have met Kanye through his brand Yeezy as she previously shared a snap of herself rocking the Yeezy sunglasses and a Gap by Yeezy shirt, adding the caption, ‘YZY SHDZ.’
Prior to Juliana, Kanye has had a string of short-lived flings, including with Uncut Gems star Julia Fox and model Chaney Jones, since splitting from ex-wife Kim Kardashian last year. The reality superstar filed for divorce in February 2021 just before what would have been the pair’s seventh wedding anniversary.
Kanye and Kim share four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. The rapper previously stated that his ex-wife ‘basically 80 per cent of the time, raise[s] those children.’ The budding romance comes amid a swirl of controversy surrounding Kanye and his continued anti-Semitic rants, as well as his choice to debut a White Lives Matter tee at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month.
