Last week TMZ reported that Ye, the discipline-spanning artist formerly known as Kanye West, tied the knot with Bianca Censori, an architectural designer at his apparel and footwear company Yeezy.
According to LinkedIn, Censori started working at Yeezy in November 2020. Originally from Australia, she earned a BArch and a MArch from the University of Melbourne in 2017 and 2020, respectively. A bio included on the web page for last year’s Melbourne Design Week stated that her work her work “engages with philosophical, aesthetic, and cultural references: these tropes generate contextual frameworks in which she designs buildings and objects.”
According to TMZ, it’s unclear whether the couple is legally married, but they were seen at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills, California, wearing what appeared to be wedding bands.
While Censori is not nearly as well-known as Ye’s ex Kim Kardashian, she’s made her way into the headlines via Ye’s latest music. Last month Ye released “Censori Overload,” a track that not-so-subtly alluded to his love interest. The song didn’t say much about his new beau, but it seemed to double down on his recent slew of antisemitic comments. He raps “Tweeted ‘death con’, now we past three” twice on one verse, a reference to his October 2022 Twitter tirade against Jewish people. (The sentiment got him banned from Twitter, and a number of creative ventures working with the artist severed their ties with him.)
The outro of “Censori Overload” samples an excerpt of his interview with far-right conspiracy theorist and radio host Alex Jones in which Ye said, “I see good things about Hitler.”
The report of Ye’s new marriage comes nearly two months after he and reality star and SKIMS mogul Kim Kardashian finalized their divorce. Kardashian filed for divorce back in February 2021, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
