The ex-files have been opened, and Brooke Crittendon is stepping out to tell her story.
Crittendon dated Kanye West from 2004-2006 and in an interview with UK newspaper The Sun, she expressed no surprise that her former beau ended up with Kim Kardashian, and believes that Jay-Z has something to do with why she's pregnant.
Having heard him bring Kardashian up in the past, Crittendon alleged that West wants the reality star because she's desired by so many men. "There's Halle Berry, J-Lo and Beyoncé but they are all taken. She [Kardashian] fits into his brand," the 31-year-old said.
Together for two-and-a-half years, Crittendon is an aspiring actress, and said that Yeezy always had a fetish for curvy women with brunette hair. She also believes that he watched the dirty tape that launched Kardashian's career. "I know he has had a thing with her for a while. I'm sure he watched her tape. After we broke up, we caught up as friends and he mentioned her, I knew something was there."
In regards to the forthcoming bundle of joy, Crittendon thinks the child will fulfill both of their needs. "She wanted kids and it's his legacy."
Apparently, Yeezy's big brother relationship with Jay-Z, and the birth of Blue Ivy Carter, was even more motivation to get Kardashian pregnant. "He admired Jay-Z and they are very close," Crittendon added. "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."
West and Crittendon broke up due to his reported infidelity. Yet during their time together, the 33-year-old was "insecure," and refused to perform until he knew his girl was on the side of the stage.
After the split, West hooked up with Alexis Phifer with whom he became engaged in 2008. Once their union was done, he started dating Amber Rose for two years. Rose is now engaged to, and pregnant by, Wiz Khalifa. Their baby is due in just over a month.
