Kanye West's Broken Engagement Billed As "Temporary"
A source close to the couple told the newspaper, "They have had their ups and downs, and, sure, things aren't working for them now. But I still think at some point Kanye will realize this is a great girl. She knew him before he had really hit it big though he was on his way. It's the ones who were there with you, before fame hit, that make the best friends and best partners in life."
Phifer is working on a fashion line as West is gearing up for another summer Glow In The Dark Tour with Lupe Fiasco and N.E.R.D. The source for the breakup, which was confirmed last week, was listed to be stemming from both parties' careers, and not a "third party."
Neither West nor Phifer have confirmed anything to the press at this point.
