KANYE West flashed a beaming smile as he posed with his Kim Kardashian-esque girlfriend at a basketball game.
The 44-year-old Gold Digger rapper – who was recently declared legally single after his divorce with the 41-year-old SKIMS founder – looked elated as he cracked a few jokes in court.
Kanye was seen chatting with new girl Chaney Jones, 24, as the couple performed for the LA Lakers vs Washington Wizards clash in Los Angeles.
The star began dating Chaney shortly after splitting from actress Julia Fox, and he’s reportedly only doing it to make the reality star “jealous.”
Still, they appeared in high spirits as they wore matching black outfits for their evening.
Chaney accessorized her plunging sports jacket and jeans with a pair of giant black sunglasses, despite the game being indoors.
The pair made sure to sit close together in the front row and were often spotted cracking jokes.
Kanye later gave a salute to the huge crowd that had gathered in the arena.
Their public outing came just hours after his baby mom, Kim, decided to make her relationship with Pete Davidson official on Instagram.
Kim took to Instagram to share various new snaps – one of which showed her getting close to the 28-year-old Saturday Night Live star.
The photo shows Kim pursing her lips on the floor of a hotel room while the comic gets a kiss.
In another snap, the happy couple poses and smiles for the camera.
Eagle-eyed fans also noticed that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had officially changed her name from double-barreled Kim Kardashian-West to her birth name Kim Kardashian on Facebook.
MAKE KIM JEALOUS
Although Kanye and Chaney have been cozying up in public, a source revealed to The Sun that Kanye has been hanging out with Chaney in hopes of making Kim jealous.
The source said, “Kanye’s latest relationship with Chaney Jones isn’t real at all.”
The insider continued, “He picked Chaney because she’s a double of Kim, they’re almost identical. He just wanted her on his arm to try and piss off Kim.
“Kanye even told friends it was all public knowledge because he knew he would be photographed with her.
“In his eyes, it’s going to make Kim jealous – although Kim has clearly moved on. Seeing Kim with Pete drives him insane and it’s his way of getting back at her.”
Kim reportedly found it bizarre that her ex would want to date women who resemble her.
After Kanye was first spotted with Chaney, adamant Kardashian fans dubbed the influencer a “dollar store version of Kim.”
Kim goes on
A source told HollywoodLife that while Kim is confused by her ex’s decision to keep making girlfriends of the same kind, she is ultimately “relieved” that he has Chaney to help take his focus off Kim.
The insider added, “Kim has seen photos of Chaney and she thinks Chaney should just be herself and not try to impersonate her.
“But if that’s what Chaney wants to do to get the attention she’s looking for or to win Kanye over, then so be it.
“Kim’s focus right now is on herself, her kids and her relationship with Pete.”
