  • Kanye West's ex Amber Rose says she was a stripper at age 15

    Kanye West’s former girlfriend Amber Rose was with him the night he took the stage, and the microphone, away from Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

    Throughout the ensuing media maelstrom, she didn’t utter a peep.

    But now that she and West have split, Rose is talking – big time.

    The close cropped bleach blond babe went on Jamie Foxx’s Foxxhole Radio on Sirius this week and clued people in on her wild child past.

    “I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,” Amber Rose, a former Ford model, told Foxx. “I was a South Philly hood rat my whole life.”

    And she was just starting her TMI tale.

    “I had two three-year relationships with women. So, I was with women for six years before I met Kanye,” Rose told Foxx.


    But apparently even Rose has her limits!

    “There ain’t gonna be no sex tape,” she said. “I’m not into that … I’ve been offered a lot of money but I chose not to do it. I chose to take the high road.”

    Despite being accused of being a gold digger for dating West, Rose insists that her relationship with West was the “real” thing.

    “I was very much in love,” she told Foxx. “I was with him for two years. We lived together, we traveled the world together, we had a lot of fun together. A lot of really cool moments.”

    Rose claimed she never sought fame, and was surprised when she started getting more attention than her Grammy-winning boyfriend.

    “It just happened to me. I literally was with someone that I loved very much and we were out people would say ‘Kanye I love you but can you snap a picture of me and Amber real quick?’” she said. “Me and Kanye were in a very committed relationship. When I was out with Kanye, I became famous.”

    Rose said fame does have its privileges. “I feel like I grew up. (I’m) more cultured. I’ve traveled the world now, I’ve learned more things (and) I’ve learned how to speak well.”

    And at length!
