Amber Rose has accused Kanye West of “bullying” her since they broke up 10 years ago.

The model, who dated West for two years, discussed the aftermath of their relationship during an appearance on the No Jumper podcast, where she was asked if she “soaked up” any of the rapper’s energy.

“I didn’t soak up anything from him. Me and him are two very different people,” Rose said. “I’m a compassionate person. I have empathy. I'm a good person. That's why people love me. That's why anybody I've ever dated always loved me.”

Adding that she is “not like him at all,” Rose continued: “I didn’t get anything from him.”

According to the 37-year-old, since ending their relationship in 2010, West has “bullied” her and “slut-shamed” her.

“He has picked on me for 10 years. He has bullied me for 10 years,” she said.

During the interview, host Adam “Adam22” Grandmaison referenced one instance when West said he had to take “30 showers” after dating Rose during an interview with The Breakfast Club in 2015.

“That’s what narcissists do,” Rose said. “You share two years with someone, you take them around the world, you buy them all the jewellery, you shout out to the world how much you love them and how much fun you have with this person, and then the person decides that this isn’t what they want their life to be… I opted out.

“I don’t want my life to be like that. I’m not that type of person.”

Rose also suggested that the I Love It rapper “says things to make his wife more comfortable,” referring to West’s wife Kim Kardashian.

“But to slut-shame me and say that you needed 30 showers. It’s like, bro. You took me around the world. Like, since when did you need 30 showers?” the Dancing With The Stars alum continued.

Rose referenced a more recent example of the 43-year-old speaking negatively about her as well, when West reportedly compared her to a prostitute during a speech at one of his presidential campaign rallies.

“He just called me a prostitute at his rally, and like, it’s 10 years later, just leave me alone. I don’t bother you, I don’t talk about you,” she said.

During the interview, Rose, who reportedly recently married music executive Alexander Edwards, was also asked about West’s recent behaviour, including his run for president, as well as his support for President Trump.

Explaining that she is “indifferent,” Rose said: “I don’t really care, I don’t really think about him like that. For me, it’s just some guy I dated 10 years ago.”

She did, however, say that she can see why the rapper “loves” the president, telling Grandmaison: “They’re twinsies. They’re literally the same person.

“They’re just the same person. There’s things that Trump says and I’m like: ‘Oh my god, that’s Kanye. That is him.’ He probably sees himself in Trump and that’s why he supports him, I’m assuming."

Rose and West began dating in 2008 before separating in 2010.
