Kanye West salutes the crowd as he takes his Kim Kardashian clone girlfriend Chaney Jones to watch the LA Lakers

KANYE West flashed a beaming smile as he posed with his Kim Kardashian look-a-like girlfriend at basketball game.

The Gold Digger rapper, 44, who was recently declared legally single amid his divorce with the SKIMS founder, 41, looked elated as he cracked a few jokes court-side.

Kanye was seen chatting to new girl Chaney Jones, 24, as the pair stepped out for the clash between the LA Lakers and the Washington Wizards in Los Angeles.

The star started dating Chaney shortly after splitting from actress Julia Fox, and he’s reportedly doing so just to make the reality star “jealous.”

Yet they appeared in high spirits as they wore matching black outfits for their night out.

Chaney accessorized her plunging sports jacket and jeans with huge black sunglasses, despite the game being held indoors.

Kanye later flashed a salute sign to the huge crowds gathered in the arena.

Their public outing came just hours after his baby momma Kim chose to make her relationship with Pete Davidson Instagram official.

Kim took to Instagram to share various new snaps – one of which showed her getting close with the Saturday Night Live star, 28.

Eagle-eyed fans also spotted the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star had officially changed her name on Facebook from double-barrelled Kim Kardashian-West to birth name, Kim Kardashian.


Although Kanye and Chaney have been cozying up in public, a source revealed to The Sun that Kanye has been spending his time with Chaney in hopes of making Kim jealous.

The source said: “Kanye’s latest relationship with Chaney Jones is not real at all."

The insider continued: “He chose Chaney because she is a lookalike of Kim, they are almost identical. He just wanted her on his arm to try and upset Kim.

“Kanye has even told friends the whole thing is for publicity, as he knew he would be photographed with her.

“In his mind, it will make Kim jealous – even though Kim has clearly moved on. Seeing Kim with Pete is driving him insane and this is his way to get back at her."

Kim reportedly has been finding it bizarre that her ex wants to date women who resemble her.

After Kanye was first spotted with Chaney, unrelenting Kardashian fans labeled the influencer as a “dollar store version of Kim."


A source told HollywoodLife that while Kim is confused by her ex’s decision to constantly find lookalike girlfriends, she’s ultimately “relieved” that he has Chaney to help take his focus away from Kim.

The insider added: “Kim has seen photos of Chaney and she thinks that Chaney should just be herself and not try to imitate her.

“But, if that is what Chaney wants to do to get the attention she is seeking, or win over Kanye, so be it.

“Kim’s focus right now is herself, her children, and her relationship with Pete.”
