Model accuses Kanye West of sending her inappropriate messages

Kanye West has faced allegations of sending inappropriate messages to a young model on Instagram, despite being married. Mikaela Lafuente, a 22-year-old model, has accused the rapper of behaving “inappropriately” towards her on social media.

Aged 22, Lafuente has been an Instagram content creator and influencer since February 2021, amassing over 1.2 million followers.

According to Lafuente, the interaction occurred in March 2024. She found it odd that West, at 47 years old and nearly twice her age, would contact her, especially given that they had never met before.

“It was funny,” she said according to The Daily Mail. “Bryce [Hall, her boyfriend] and I were in Vegas and I was going through my Instagram DMs and I saw this [Kanye West message].

“At first, I didn’t believe it and thought it was a fake account, but it wasn’t.

“The message was pretty odd as I had never spoken to him or seen him in person before.”

West’s texts

Screenshots obtained by the outlet reveal Kanye messaging her with “Back in Cali” and asking if she wanted to “hang out” and listen to his new album.

Lafuente declined his invitation and later criticized West’s behavior as inappropriate, emphasizing that cheating in relationships is unacceptable.

West has been married to Bianca Censori, 29, since December 2022. After being turned down, he reportedly deleted all his Instagram messages to her. Mikaela’s boyfriend, Bryce, shared the screenshots on X.

“I don’t think it’s acceptable to be messaging other women when you’re married. It’s not acceptable and it’s something I’d stand behind forever,” she said.

“I’ve grown up with all my family being with their partners forever and this is what I want for my relationship,” she added.

“Monogamy is what is accepted and cheating is unacceptable.”

“If he texts other girls, I know I said no, but others might not.

“I do not support it. Maybe they have an agreement and Bianca knows about it and is cool with it, but we will never know this.”
