Kanye West and Alexis Phifer

Phifer began dating rapper Kanye West in 2002. After dating for around two years, they broke up when West found success in 2004 after releasing his album The College Dropout. The two reunited the following year and eventually got engaged in August 2006. The rapper proposed to her over a lobster and pasta dinner during a vacation on Capri island. She was spotted on the red carpet flaunting her engagement right at an Evening in Vogue event in New York in early 2008. Shortly after that, the couple called off their 18 monthly engagement in 2008.

Allegedly their relationship turned sour after the unexpected death of West's mother, Donda, who died of complications following elective plastic surgery. Following their breakup, Phifer shared that she was unhappy about their split. She even mentioned West as a talented person she ever knew. In an interview with People in April 2008, she said, "It's always sad when things like this end, and we remain friends. I wish him the best in his future and all of his endeavors. He's one of the most talented people I've ever met."

After her high-profile relationship with West ended, she remained low-key about her personal life. However, in an interview with Vibe in 2011, she said, "I think after experiencing being with somebody that is a celebrity, it's really nice to have your anonymity." 

Child

In the same interview with Vibe, Phifer mentioned having a son. She said, "I'm a mom so I would much rather be able to be out with my son and have nobody recognize me."
