Kanye West and his partner, Bianca Censori, have recently found themselves in hot water, as they’ve been reportedly banned from a prestigious Venice boat company due to their controversial behavior during a boat ride.
The world-renowned rapper, who legally adopted the name “Ye” in 2021, and Australian architectural designer Censori made headlines when they were photographed enjoying a boat excursion in Venice at the end of August. However, some of the images captured the duo in an awkward and compromising position. West, 46, was snapped with his pants down, exposing his posterior, while Censori, 28, appeared to be positioned between his legs.
In response to the release of these scandalous photos, the boat company involved issued a stern statement, declaring that Kanye West and Bianca Censori are no longer welcome on their vessels. Both West and Censori have been banned from utilizing the company’s services.
A spokesperson for Venezia Turismo Motoscafi, a boat company known to serve celebrity clientele such as Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, and Ben Affleck, clarified that the boat’s driver had not witnessed these indecent acts as they were focused on navigating the waterway safely. The statement further emphasized that had the driver observed any lewd behavior, they would have promptly intervened and reported the transgressors to the authorities.
The statement also noted the presence of a third individual on the boat, who accompanied Mr. and Mrs. West. This person obstructed the captain’s view to the stern in any case. The boat company officially distanced itself from such acts and behavior and unequivocally stated that Mr. West and his wife would no longer be welcome aboard their vessels.
As of now, no comments have been received from the representatives of Bianca Censori or Kanye West regarding this incident.
The couple is said to have held a non-legally binding marriage ceremony earlier this year after making their first public appearance together in January. This incident took place a couple of months after West’s separation from reality television personality Kim Kardashian, with whom he has four children.
Kanye West, renowned for his music career with hits like “Stronger” (2007) and “Waves” (2016), has faced a series of controversies in recent years, overshadowing his musical achievements. These controversies have involved erratic behavior and offensive remarks, including antisemitic comments.
In 2022, West faced consequences for his “hateful and dangerous” remarks related to Jewish people, resulting in being dropped by Adidas and Balenciaga. The prominent US celebrity talent agency, CAA, also severed ties with him. West has had his Twitter account suspended and reactivated multiple times due to his online conduct.
West’s appearances on platforms with right-wing commentators and sharing of conspiracy theories have garnered widespread criticism from both celebrities and the public. Despite the backlash, West remains unapologetic for his controversial statements.
The rapper’s behavior continues to be a topic of discussion, diverting attention from his remarkable contributions to the music industry.
