Kanye West and his partner Bianca Censori have been “banned for life” after indecently exposing themselves on a boat in Venice.
The incident happened recently in Venice, when the artist was photographed with his underwear down during a boat trip on the canal with his partner, and he was criticized for indecent exposure.
Now, the 46-year-old rapper and his 28-year-old partner have been publicly disowned by the boating company for the event, and have subsequently been banned from boarding any of the company’s boats again.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia (via The Independent), the Venezia Turismo Motoscafi company explained the company’s estrangement with the musician after the images emerged, explaining that the two would have been kicked off the boat if it had been noticed. by the driver.
“The driver had to watch the traffic and they didn’t see the obscenities,” they began. “If this had happened, he would have gone out immediately and reported the offenders to the authorities.”
They also claimed that the driver was not aware of the events taking place at the back of the boat, as the third person accompanying the couple was “obstructing the captain’s vision”.
“We completely disassociate ourselves from such actions and behavior,” they said. “Obviously, Mr. West and his wife will no longer be welcome aboard our company’s ships.”
Neither West nor Censori have commented on the incident, although several outlets, including Metro, have claimed that the controversy may have been a publicity stunt, designed to draw more attention to the rapper’s upcoming music projects.
It’s far from the first time West has made headlines for his controversial behavior in recent months.
Since his “Donda 2” album launch in Miami last year, West has shared a series of anti-Semitic comments, starting when he tweeted that he was going to “die with 3 [sic] On Jewish PEOPLE” in October 2022.
His social media accounts were repeatedly suspended for his comments, and he was also criticized by many show business figures, as well as political figures and various organizations representing Jewish communities.
In addition, the star lost contracts with Balenciaga, Adidas and Gap, and withdrew his honorary degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Adidas donated proceeds from the remaining stock of West’s Yeezy sneakers to organizations fighting anti-Semitism.
Last month, however, West appeared on stage for the first time since February 2022 when Travis Scott brought him out on his Circus Maximus live special from Rome.
In addition, rumors that the artist is preparing to release a new album surfaced recently, as some sources close to the artist announced that he is about to release new material anytime.
