Strike a pose! Kanye West wants to recruit Caitlyn Jenner‘s rumored girlfriend, Sophia Hutchins, to model for his fashion brand Yeezy, according to Radar. The “All Mine” rapper is reportedly ready to hire the 22-year-old to be the “new face and body” of his brand.
“Ye thinks Sophia looked bomb in her new Yeezy Boosts, and is talking to her about working for him full-time as a model,” an insider close to Kim Kardashian‘s hubby told Radar. “He thinks she could be a huge supermodel, and wants to help her get her big break.” On Aug. 29, Yeezy took to Twitter to share a text message conversation with Caitlyn, where she thanked him for sending Sophia a stylish pair of kicks.
“Sophia loved the first set of looks your team left and went all Yeezy for her travel outfit today!” Caitlyn wrote. “Thanks again,” and Kanye sweetly responded: “So awesome. You’re welcome.” And it looks like the feelings are mutual, since Ye wants to offer Sophia this amazing opportunity. On top of that, Caitlyn is supposedly on board! “Sophia and Cait love the the idea, and Cait’s really pushing her to take Kanye up on his offer,” their source said.
“Cait feels there’s room for two models in the family, and told Sophia she’d ask Kendall [Jenner] to give her a few pointers,” the insider concluded. Fans are surprised Kanye and Caitlyn are so close these days, especially considering Caitlyn’s longstanding feud with Kim. After slamming Kris Jenner in his controversial book release, Kim was totally on her mom’s team when she spoke about it on a KUWTK episode in 2017. Cait and Kim did recently reconnect at Kylie Jenner‘s 21st birthday party, so it’s possible they’ve made amends!
