At last, Kanye West has found a woman whose opinion of him is as high as his own. People reports the rapper’s engagement to a woman named Alexis, who apparently couldn’t afford a last name before she met Kanye. No golddigger jokes, please; apparently, she’s been with him since before he was famous. No word on when they’ll tie the knot, or on whether he’s given her a ring fitted with diamonds from Sierra Leone. In all seriousness, congratulations to Kanye, especially for handling his engagement with such discretion (unlike his new BFF). I mean, who even knew that he had a longtime girlfriend?
