Kanye West has been laying low in recent weeks but he was spotted earlier this week on a dinner date with a mystery woman in Los Angeles.
TMZ obtained the secret photos which sees Ye sharing a meal with an unidentified blonde woman at the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills on Monday (January 9).
Details are scarce on the reasoning behind the meet-up but Kanye has been spotted a few times lately at that same luxury hotel.
Some fans are floating the possibility of the mystery woman being a new boo, although Kanye seemed to be getting cozy with Brazilian model Juliana Nalu late last year. Prior to Nalu, he was dating Miami-based model Chaney Jones in the spring of 2022 and she even got his name tatted on her.
These public appearances should silence the “missing” rumors which plagued Kanye West towards the end of last year. He was also reportedly spotted attending church last weekend when a photo of Ye listening to the sermon surfaced on social media.

Initial speculation about the Chicago native being MIA began to gain momentum in December when his former business manager, Thomas St. John, claimed he could not be found after filing a lawsuit against Kanye West.
St. John said that he and Kanye West began a professional relationship in March 2022 with West agreeing to place him on a monthly retainer of $300,000 to be his business manager and the Chief Marketing Officer of the Donda brand.
The business relationship with Kanye West was all allegedly good until an “aggressive meeting” took place leading to the ending of their partnership. He also accused Ye of not returning his messages.
Thomas St. John is now seeking $4.5 million in damages, which includes payments for the months of July, August and September, as well as retainers for the remaining term of the defaulted agreement, which was set to end in November 2023.
Meanwhile, Kanye’s nine-year-old daughter North West went viral last week with another TikTok, but this time, she dressed up as Ye and used a Yeezus standout to soundtrack the clip.
The TikTok was posted to Kim and her daughter’s joint TikTok account, which finds North rocking a black hoodie with a fake beard, hairline and bushy eyebrows to encapsulate her father’s look.
