Rumors are swirling that Kanye West is dating “Pussycat Doll” Melody Thornton. Kanye was spotted with Thornton at the Marc Jacobs women’s store on Mercer St. during the boutique’s Fashion’s Night Out festivities and were seen holding hands while leaving.
According to the NY Daily News, an in-the-know source says West, 33, and Thornton, who turns 26 on Sept. 26, have been “dating for only about two weeks” but that things are going “very well.”
Apparently, however, the “Power” artist isn’t ready yet to walk the red carpet with Thornton. West left her behind in New York when he jetted to Los Angeles Saturday for the MTV Video Music Awards, where he was under plenty of scrutiny because of his behavior there last year.
