  • Vinetria is an Instagram model with over 450,000 followers as of 2022.
  • She dated Kanye West briefly in 2021, after being spotted at his Donda Academy school for a sporting event.
  • Over a year later, Kanye compared her to the likes of Beyonce and Lizzo on Instagram in the middle of rant after his ‘White Lives Matter’ scandal.

Kanye West was back to his Instagram rants on Wednesday (October 6). While he slammed Adidas for reportedly reviewing their partnership and shot back at critics of his “White Lives Matter” shirt, the “Famous” rapper found time to switch gears and heap praise on his model ex Vinetria, whom he was linked to for a brief period after his ex wife Kim Kardashian started dating Pete Davidson in the Fall of 2021.

“Vinetria you are the culture’s favorite,” Kanye wrote alongside a photo of the model, before referencing her work on his recent Paris Fashion Week show. “THEEYYY” threw a mask on you at YZY SZN 9 when I wasn’t looking, “THEEYY” don’t want undeniable beautiful black woman to be put on their rightful throne.” He then dragged Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin, who had both defended Vogue fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson after Kanye mocked her on IG. By the end of the message, Kanye listed Vinetria among stars like Beyonce and Lizzo, calling them all “queens.” He added that Vinetria is “going to change the trajectory of our people cause she’s not promoting the things that kill our people that “MEDIA” use to kill destroy and control our people.”

About 10 minutes after he posted the message, Kanye shared another IG with Vinetria’s alleged reply. “Thank you for saying this and believing in who I am,” she reportedly wrote. Keep reading to find out more about the young star, below.
