Ex-Girlfriend Brooke Crittendon REVEALS Kanye West Is VULNERABLE & INSECURE, Says Kim Kardashian "Fits His Brand"

Kanye West's ex-girlfriend Brooke Crittendon gave an interesting perspective on his relationship with Kim Kardashian and how it all serves a higher purpose for his brand.  And it all shields his insecurity.  All things we kinda figured out a while ago, but interesting to hear one of his exes confirm.  Find out Brooke's tales from the ex inside.....

You can learn a lot about a person when their "ex" starts spilling intimate details.  And though Brooke Crittendon didn't throw her ex-Kanye West completely under the bus during a recent interview with The Sun, she did give an interesting perspective on why he ended up in the arms of reality tv starlet Kim K. 

Brooke, who dated Kanye from 2004 to 2006 (before he got engaged to Alexis Phifer), explained her thoughts about the pairing of Kanye and Kim by bascially saying the "relationship" compliments his ego. Obvi.  She said:

“For Kanye, what other person besides Kim Kardashian is there? There’s Halle Berry, J.Lo and Beyonce, but they are all taken. She fits into his brand. Part of being untouchable is having what other people want. It’s about saying, ‘Everybody wants her and she wants me.' That makes sense in Kanye’s world."

She adds that a man like Kanye wants certain things from his career and for his life. That checklist will include, money, fame, the hot chick and the kids to go along with it.  And she confirmed 'Ye's been eyeing the sextape star turned self-loving reality star for a minute now:

"I know he has had a thing with her for a while. I’m sure he watched her [sex] tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there ... Them being together satisfies them for now. Having a baby ticks a box. She wanted kids and it’s his legacy.”

Brooke also credited Jay-Z with having a huge influence on Kanye settling down with Kim. 

“He admires Jay-Z and they are very close. Over the years Jay has been a role model to him. Whether it is starting to be more mature, taking chances with clothes or getting married and starting a family, ultimately he takes those cues from Jay.”

Though it seems Brooke suspects their relationship won't last (since it will only momentarily satisfy Kayne), she admitted that dating Mr. West had its perks.

“By day I was working in an office (she was a production assistant at MTV) and in the evening this fairy godmother would arrive and I’d have all these amazing experiences. It was like a two-year trip to Disneyland.

Our first anniversary was the first day of his tour in Miami. After the show we went back to our suite and there were hundreds of roses and the orchestra section from his concert were in there playing the song, It’s Our Anniversary, by Tony! Toni! Tone!"

She also revealed something you might not expect about Kanye...he's vulnerable and insecure.  Actually...you may have guessed that.

“He was not macho — he needed you to be with him and needed your opinion. He was quite vulnerable.  He was insecure as he couldn’t be with me every day. I got the impression he worried he wasn’t good enough for me. He needs people to tell him he is good and that he is needed and wanted.  He wouldn’t start his show unless I was at the side of the stage. One night the show was delayed because he couldn’t find me."

Really Brooke?  Despite his insecurity, it didn't stop him from living the life of a rockstar which included all those OTHER chicks. Brooke said his cheating is what led to their breakup.

“I was very naive. I was a normal girl and in my life you meet a guy, you go on three dates and that’s your boyfriend. But he was a superstar and it got too much for me to handle.

There was a lot of attention from other women. Kanye was very open and honest but it ended up with me knowing too much. I don’t want to be silly and say it wasn’t cheating because I knew about it.  I was never OK being one of many — or even one of a few."

Brooke added that what distinguishes her from Kim is that she's an ordinary girl and wasn't willing to conform to Kanye's expectations and be robbed of her individuality.

We've heard she isn't little miss innocent either when it comes to cheating ways.  But that's for another day.  We guess the grass is always greener....

LOL I'm just glad she got out when she knew she's couldn't handle the lifestyle anymore instead of doing more damage to herself for his fame and money.

His life is imitating his

His life is imitating his art. Everything he rapped about in his earlier works he's followed to a "T". She doesn't sound bitter or upset; I feel she's offering an accurate perspective.

Somebody interviewed her.

Somebody interviewed her. They asked her what she thought of Kanye and she responded. If you have a problem with that, then talk to the person who sought her out for the interview (or Natasha for choosing to print it).

Listen ladies I am going to

Listen ladies I am going to be honest with you...If you love women then you L-O-V-E lots of women! You may be cheated on but if you are the main one your spot is solidified...What you should be doing is supporting your man and not giving him grief about ANYTHING and I guarantee you no matter what he is doing he will give you the world!!!
Money First's picture

Man, please! I will support

Man, please! I will support my man, like he supports me, but I won't support a man who isn't treating me with respect, love, and honor (the way I treat him). This "support your man regardless of what he does" is a bunch of bullshit. If he's cheating on me, he isn't giving me the world. You must be a man talking that nonsense. What makes you think because a man has a dyck, he can just treat a woman any ole way and she' supposed to just "take it." Some men want their cake and ice cream too.

I don't even remember this chick. Sound like she is trying to stay relevant. She is very boring looking
Somerknight's picture

Seems like a very honest

Seems like a very honest interview that describes things we all probably could've guessed about good ol' Kanye. But after so many years, I don't really see the point of her adding her two cents. Pretty girl though. I'm sure she can do much better than Kanye (maybe not money-wise, but in every other way that counts).

Im not concerned with what other races do. My concern is black people!!!And beside black women don't embarrass their men as much as black women do. They aint trynsa live off the hype of their ex like black women do. Now sista you aint got to call me a ignorant fool because i have an opinion. Be better than that my black queen!!!!

White women are the first to

White women are the first to ride the wave of their husbands title and status for comfort, to be kept-women, have property and share in his accomplishments as if it were her own. In white circles, elite or not, they do this and it's highly recommended within families. Only in recent years have some black women become victim to being mentally brainwashed by the "celebrity ambition," that they have become too vocal, desperate and lazy for their own fame or monetary gain. Every black person doesn't represent a whole race, so stop generalizing your thoughts.
