Amber Rose speaks the truth on Kanye: "He's a f***ing clown".

Kanye West, 38, came out of yesterday’s Twitter tiff with Wiz Khalifa looking like a right dunce.

Not only did he lose major cred by being unaware of a slang term for weed, he got completely owned by his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, 32, who took him down with just one tweet.

Amber Rose, on the other hand, is having rather a good week.

She came out on top in the Kanye fracas, probably gaining a couple of million Twitter followers in the process; she wrote an op ed in Time about not caring what other people (such as Kanye West) think of her; and she went on the Allegedly pop culture podcast to give her perspective on the incident.

“I would never talk about kids in an argument,” she told hosts Matthew Cole Weiss and Theo Von of West, referring to Kanye’s claim that he “owns” her son.

“It just shows the type of person he is. Even him saying stuff about my son, I still didn’t say anything about his kids. I’m not going to. This is ridiculous. They’re innocent babies. You don’t ever, ever talk about a baby, ever.”

West’s long and bewildering procession of 140 character proclamations has now been deleted, but it’s not forgotten (especially since we screen-grabbed a load of them).

A curious thing came out of the whole debacle: it became apparent that Kanye West is still preoccupied with Amber Rose, who was his girlfriend for two years between 2008 and 2010.

According to her, they broke up because West was cheating on her with Kim Kardashian, who in turn was cheating on her partner Reggie Bush.

When he was made aware that Wiz Khalifa’s Twitter reference to “KK” wasn’t about Kim Kardashian but rather his favourite Khalifa Kush strain of marijuana, West decided to move onto his favourite subject: Amber Rose.

To Rose’s ex-husband Khalifa, West referred to her as a “stripper” and applied the lyrics of his hit song Gold Digger to her.

He’s previously called her a “whore” and said he had to shower “30 times” after being with her to be clean enough for Kim Kardashian.

That’s his wife Kim Kardashian, who’s famous for a sex tape.

Rose was inspired to throw a SlutWalk after that particular unsavoury comment.

“Ever since high school, I’ve been called a slut. All the boys were attracted to me—that wasn’t my fault! Then, when I started getting famous, the shaming got even worse,” Rose wrote in Time.

In a leaked snipped from a song on West’s new album Swish Waves, he makes another snide reference to Rose.

“My ex said she gave me the best years of her life / I saw a recent picture of her, guess she was right.”

West seems to value women solely for their sexual “purity” (and don’t ask me what exactly that entails, because I cannot figure it out either) and their looks.

He’s clearly besotted with his wife Kardashian — but it doesn’t seem to be her brains or personality that he’s attracted to.

“OK, ladies and gentlemen — all barber shops, fashion designers, architects, corner stores, Wall Street, all over the world — y’all acting like this ain’t the most beautiful woman of all time! I’m talkin’ like arguably of human existence — the top 10 of human existence,” West said of Kardashian during a radio interview when they were engaged.

He’s said he spotted her in a paparazzi shot with Paris Hilton and knew she was the one. He similarly spotted Amber Rose in a Ludacris music video, and said that if Kim Kardashian had dated him when he wanted “there would be no Amber Rose”.

But there is an Amber Rose, one who’s become an author, prominent feminist and business owner in the years since their split. She’s come into her own without his influence — is that why he’s so stuck on her?

Amber Rose is having none of it.

“He’s a fucking clown,” she said of West on Allegedly.

Was she surprised by West’s ill-advised outburst?

“No, because I know him. I know he’s a fucking clown. I know him. The crazy thing is that he came out with a song I think last week saying I had my son for a meal ticket, and I didn’t even say anything. I was just like man, he’s a cornball. I’m not saying shit.”

“I wouldn’t have said anything [yesterday] if it was just between him and Wiz. That’s two grown men hashing it out. That’s their business. I would have kept it cute and just minded my business, but you don’t bring in my baby. That’s so corny.”
