On Friday morning, Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, was reportedly married to 27-year-old Australian Yeezy designer Bianca Censori in a private ceremony in Beverly Hills. The 45-year-old rapper was seen with Bianca wearing a wedding ring at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills this week.

Social media was quick to react, and a lot of people were shocked. Some pointed out that Kim might have hinted at this in the last TikTok she posted with her daughter, North Kardasian-West. In the clip, the pair lip synch along to SZA’s hit song “Kill Bill.”

Ye was reportedly unreachable since December 18, which led to many assuming he had gone missing. Some were concerned, given his disordered mental state over the past few months.

Ye has allegedly been living at the luxury hotel, as he has been spotted there multiple times recently. It is unclear how long Ye and Censori have been in a relationship, but his recent 2022 track “Censori Overload” is now believed to allude to their relationship, and also to some of his most recent controversies.

Ye’s divorce from Kim Kardashian was finalized two months ago, following their seven year marriage. The tumultuous settlement attracted press attention for several of Ye’s outlandish demands, including the ability to “question” Kim’s future husband.

Ye has landed himself in numerous controversies over the course of the past few months. He is now banned from Twitter after tweeting several antisemitic statements. This was only amplified further when he appeared on Alex Jones “InfoWars” podcast alongside far-right political commentator Nick Fuentes. Jones and Fuentes are already known for their white supremacist ideology, and Ye announced his love for Hitler aloud on the podcast.

Ye then went on to wear a “white lives matter” shirt for Balenciaga during Paris Fashion Week. After this, Adidas, Balenciaga, and Creative Artists Agency (CAA) all dropped him within days, bringing his net worth down from his billionaire status.

Despite all of this, Kim Kardashian recently expressed an interest in coparenting with Ye, though she intends to shield her children from his controversies and hateful speech. In a tearful interview now circulating on TikTok, Kardashian recounts her cherished relationship with her late father, and hopes for her children to have the same.

Censori deleted her Instagram page shortly before the reports of her marriage to Ye broke. According to her LinkedIn profile, she has worked with Yeezy as the head architect since 2020. She attended the University of Melbourne in Australia for both her Bachelors and Masters before relocating to the United States to work for Ye’s brand.

Censori cut her hair short and bleached it blonde at the time of the wedding. This comes after Kim Kardashian has spoken on Ye’s need to control the physical appearance of his significant other. Actress and artist Julia Fox, who Ye dated in January 2022, had a similar need for control. The pair famously wore coordinated outfits during much of their relationship.

The Kardashian family is yet to issue a statement on Ye’s marriage to Censori, and it remains a non-legally binding union at this time.
