Kanye West married Australian architect Bianca Censori, 28, nearly two months after his divorce from Kim Kardashian was finalized. Sources close to the rapper said that the pair tied the knot in a private ceremony, but haven’t filed a marriage certificate to make their wedding legal, according to TMZ. Besides the report, Ye has also been seen out with a chunky gold band on his marriage finger, hinting that the two may have tied the knot in a secret ceremony.
The secret marriage comes less than two months after Kanye, 46, and Kim, 43, finalized their divorce after 7 years of marriage after they separated in 2021. As part of the agreement, Kanye is required to pay Kim $200,000 a month in child support. Kanye’s new marriage to Bianca, who bears a striking resemblance to Kim, was certainly unexpected.

Bianca Is the Head of Architecture at Yeezy
While it’s not clear when Kanye and Bianca began seeing each other, the pair have been colleagues for a few years now. Bianca has been working as an architectural designer for Kanye’s Yeezy brand since November 2020, and her LinkedIn page says that she’s also the head of architecture at the company, but it’s not clear how long she’s held that title. Before joining Yeezy, Bianca was a student architect at DP Toscano Architects in Australia from July 2017 to June 2020.
She Studied at the University of Melbourne
Before kicking off her career, Bianca spent years studying architecture. She was an undergrad student at the University of Melbourne from 2013 to 2017, and she returned to her college to get her master’s degree in architecture from 2019 to 2020, per her LinkedIn page.
When Did Kanye and Bianca Get Married?
While news that Ye and Bianca may have come as a bit of a surprise, they were spotted grabbing a bite together at the Beverly Hills Waldorf Astoria in January 2023. They were seen sharing a meal while sitting in a booth together, and Bianca appeared to have recently dyed her hair blonde. Kanye and Bianca also reportedly celebrated their marriage with a honeymoon at the Armangiri resort in Utah, according to DailyMail.
The two reportedly tied the knot in December 2022.
Kanye Released a Song Referencing Bianca
Kanye has never shied away from addressing his personal life in his music, and while his recent output has been sparse, he did drop a song with his new wife’s last name in the title on his Instagram in December, per The Source. The track “Censori Overload,” which has also been called “Someday We’ll All Be Free,” is seemingly a reference to his new bride, and while it doesn’t include lines referencing the architect, there are a few lines that reference marriage. “Wakin’ up to ‘I can’t do this anymore’ texts/And the Bible said I can’t have any more sex ’til marriage,” Kanye raps at the start of the song, via Genius.
Bianca Briefly Owned a Jewelry Company
Before becoming an architect, Bianca owned the company Nylons Jewellery while she was in college from August 2013 to July 2017. It’s not clear what type of products the company sold, as the website appears to be defunct now.
Bianca’s Family Was ‘Happy’ About the Marriage
“It’s very exciting news for both my sister and the family but we choose to have some privacy for the time being,” Bianca’s sister told Herald Sun. A cousin of the bride added that she’s “super happy for them both.”
However, that seemed to change by late 2023 after multiple reports surfaced claiming that Bianca’s loved ones “begged” her to reevaluate her and Kanye’s relationship.
