In an interview with the magazine, 24-year-old Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi reveals her romance with the rapper sparked during a concert when "he had security pick her out of the crowd to meet him for drinks."
Ghobadi claims she was reluctant to engage in the affair, but West assured her that his relationship with Kardashian is solely for publicity.
"He told me he wanted to 'hook up,' but I was concerned that he was seeing Kim Kardashian," Ghobadi told Star. "He told me that [the relationship] was for publicity and nothing serious."
Ghobadi responded to her critics Wednesday on Twitter:
Maybe I went about this the wrong way but how else am I meant to get thru to her? I am NOT the bad guy in this situation. nothing more 2 say— Leyla Ghobadi (@LeylaGhobadi) June 12, 2013
West's camp have since denied the claims in a statement made to TMZ:
This most recent attack on Kanye West and his family is totally without merit. It's a blatant attempt by a misguided individual who is clearly seeking publicity, and another in a series of malicious stories drummed up by non-credible 'news' sources."
