Kanye West's Girlfriend from South Philly

A rapper dating a model is not uncommon in Hollywood, but it's always more interesting when said model is from your hometown.

Hip-hop ego, er, I mean, star Kanye West is dating model Amber Rose, a South Philadelphia native.

The pair were first spotted together during New York Fashion Week in February which is a pretty big deal for West, the most vain dude alive. In fact, Amber is the first woman he's gone public with since his split with Alexis Phifer almost a year ago. It seems that the two are a good match. Even friends are noticing, "She's going to be good for him. Amber is a model with a fly, out-there, in-your-face style and attitude, just like Kanye," a source told the New York Daily News.
