KANYE WEST will be hoping it’s third time lucky when it comes to model girlfriends, after getting together with Candice Swanepoel.
The rapper is quietly dating the South African beauty following romances with Irina Shayk and Julia Fox following the breakdown of his marriage to Kim Kardashian 18 months ago.
The new couple have already taken trips to Oxfordshire and New York together in recent weeks.
And they have grown so close that he has even enlisted her to model his new range of sunglasses.
But that might not please his ex Kim too much as, only five months ago, Candice was modelling her Skims shapewear products.
A source said: “Kanye and Candice have been seeing a lot of each other and he’s been introducing her as his girlfriend.

“He was hung up on Kim for a long time but he finally seems to be moving on.
“So far things have been kept quite casual with Candice because they are both really busy and they don’t want to rush into anything.
“But things are a lot more promising than they were with Irina or Julia.”
He dated Irina last summer and then had a whirlwind two-month romance with Uncut Gems actress Julia at the beginning of the year.

Speaking this week about why they split, she explained: “It was just like, he still wants to hang out with me today. And then real life set in and the lifestyle wasn’t sustainable.
“I couldn’t fly away once a week. And I tapped out at the first sign of a red flag.”
Asked about what that red flag was, Julia, who has a 20-month-old son called Valentino with her ex-husband, added: “The unresolved issues that he was dealing with.
“It just seems like he had a lot to work on, and I just don’t have time for it, or energy.
“I don’t have the bandwidth or emotional capacity for it. I’m proud of myself for that.”
She said that, before having her son, she would have “definitely stuck it out and been there for longer”.
While Kanye has someone special in his life once again, Kim recently split from comedian Pete Davidson.
But now she insists she is done with dating celebrities.
She told James Corden on The Late Late Show: “Clearly, it’s not working, whatever I’m doing. So, I don’t know. Maybe, like, (next time) meet a doctor.
“I think it’s gonna be like, scientist, neuroscientist, biochemist, doctor, attorney. That’s maybe what I envision in the future.”
Blake has summit to smile about
ALL that glitters is gold for Blake Lively.
The actress beamed as she revealed her baby bump at the 10th Annual Forbes Power Women’s Summit in New York, announcing she is pregnant with her fourth child.
Dressed in a sparkling sequined dress, Blake also showed off her legs in sky-high heels.
She already has kids James, Inez and Betty with her actor husband Ryan Reynolds.
The couple met in 2010 on the set of the Spider-Man spin-off film Green Lantern.
Given most Hollywood couples last about two minutes, I’m impressed they are still going steady.
Rylan: Mum feared I had stroke
RYLAN CLARK got into such a bad place last year he couldn’t speak properly – and his mum thought he was having a stroke.
The presenter split from his husband Dan Neal and took five months off work after struggling with his mental health.
Rylan said: “I felt like I’d had a jab and I was shutting down. I wouldn’t eat. I went through a stage where I couldn’t even talk.
“My speech was just slurred and my mum genuinely thought I was having a stroke. I went down to nine stone.”
Despite needing time off, being away from work made things worse at first.
Rylan told Fearne Cotton on her Happy Place podcast: “The worst thing I did was stop, on reflection, purely because I think I got so much into my own head.”
Ladbaby’s on a roll in mansion
LADBABY‘s Mark Hoyle has splashed out on a lavish £2.25million mansion – just weeks after he was hit with cheating allegations.
The YouTuber and wife Roxanne have quit their three-bed semi and ploughed their earnings into the estate in Nottingham.
The sausage roll fanatics – who have scored four consecutive Christmas No1s with pastry-themed festive tracks – have upgraded to a seven-bed, seven-bathroom home which features a grand entrance hall with a modern take on the Bridgerton-style winding staircase.
The 8,000-square-foot gated property also boasts a gym, walk-in dressing rooms and a Jacuzzi.
Their neighbours now include former England spin bowler and BBC cricket pundit Graeme Swann.
One local said: “It’s an absolutely massive house and perfect for a celebrity.
“Mark is a big Nottingham Forest fan, and I’ve been told that he wanted to live in the same area as some of his heroes. A lot of them have homes here.
“He is obviously doing well for himself. Houses in this part of the city go for well over a million pounds – and this was one of the most expensive in the neighbourhood.”
But the move comes after it was reported earlier this month that the dad-of-two touched a mystery woman’s bottom in a bar, during a night out without Roxanne.
A new home should help calm down any tension.
SAM SMITH introduced one of the strangest accessories ever as London Fashion Week kicked off on Thursday – a plastic pigeon.
The singer, gearing up to release new single Unholy next Thursday with Kim Petras, was at the Harris Reed catwalk show in a shirt dress and dark blazer, along with the fake bird, which the star decided to name Martin.
Ridiculously, it is actually a £650 clutch bag.
