What Bianca Censori's Relationship Is Really Like With Kanye West's Kids

Kim Kardashian moved on from ex-husband Kanye "Ye" West with Pete Davidson, but the rapper rebounded at the speed of light. First, there was the short-lived (yet oh so glamorous) era of Julia Fox, followed by a brief relationship with model Chaney Jones, per People. Ye was also briefly linked to Bradley Cooper's ex, Irina Shayk, though nothing serious ever came of it. What we assume to be more serious is the "Heartless" singer's marriage to Bianca Censori. Ye's romance with Censori came in the wake of his divorce from Kardashian, from whom he first split in 2021. TMZ reported that he and Censori wed in a secret ceremony in January 2023, where they exchanged "symbolic" rings. However, no marriage certificate was filed, and there are major questions surrounding the legitimacy of the wedding.

"Kanye and Bianca did have a small marriage ceremony, friends don't know if it's legal, but it's very real to them," a source dished to Us Weekly. Another insider told The U.S. Sun that Ye "had talked about having a wife again for months, living a Christian life, and cleaning up his wrongdoings." Could these indiscretions be Ye's own admission of infidelity, which he alluded to in his track, "Hurricane"? Whatever the case, Ye seems to have calmed down following a tumultuous 2022. Maybe Censori had an impact on his new presence of mind. It makes us wonder just how serious Ye and Censori really are. Has the Yeezy design architect spent time with Ye's children, for example?

Bianca Censori has been spending time with North West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye "Ye" West have certainly had their ups and downs during the co-parenting process. (Remember when Ye accused Kardashian of "kidnapping" their daughter Chicago?) But, these days the SKIMS mogul is making peace with her ex. "Co-parenting healthily is their main goal," a source told Entertainment Tonight, adding that the pair is "still having some back and forth with a few arguments." As part of that co-parenting journey, Kardashian's loosening the reins regarding who in Ye's life can spend time with their four children. This means Bianca Censori. "Bianca has been around their kids," the source continued. "Kim, ultimately, just wants Kanye to be at peace. So if Bianca helps with that, then it's fine."

Apparently, Censori is spending more time with the Kardashian-West children than just the odd outing here and there. In March, Page Six reported that Censori was spotted with her rapper beau and his daughter North West at Universal Studios Hollywood. This came after North and Censori went out to dinner at Nobu Malibu, which perhaps didn't go as well as Ye hoped. "There's no perfect time to introduce children to a new step-parent," body language expert Judi James told The U.S. Sun, implying that it may have been too soon for North to meet Censori. According to James, North's "miserable" facial expression (which was captured by paps) "could be related to feelings of loyalty to her mother."

North West might be confused about Bianca Censori

As the oldest of the Kardashian-West kids, it makes sense that North West would be the one spending time with Bianca Censori. Currently, it doesn't appear that Saint, Chicago, or Psalm have hung out with the Yeezy design architect — but to be fair, Psalm is only 3! And, it may be too soon for North to form an opinion about her "stepmom," although her facial expressions seem to signal discomfort, per Hola!. North could also be confused, given she's spent time with both Censori and Kim Kardashian's ex, Pete Davidson, in as little as a year.

Meanwhile, although Kardashian seems keen to prove that she's cool with North and Censori spending time together, the opposite might be true. "Kim hates [Bianca]," an insider dished to Page Six. Kardashian, who knew Censori from her years of working for Ye's Yeezy brand, didn't trust the design architect around her then-husband. "[Bianca's] pretty. And Kim hates pretty girls," the source added. Furthermore, Ye's quickie marriage to Censori meant Kardashian wasn't given much time to consider how Censori would fit into her children's lives. 

"[The Kardashians] aren't sure if it is a PR stunt," another insider told Page Six. "They are waiting to see if [Kanye] files for papers. They are nervous because if it's real, [Bianca] would be in the children's life." Currently, Censori and Ye have only been "married" for mere months, so we'll have to wait and see how this plays out.
