Last week, Kanye West was caught canoodling with a blonde woman while in France for the Cannes International Film Festival, the two engaging in a steamy lip-lock on a balcony. While various sources claimed 18-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Kate Upton was the golden-haired lady in question -- she took to Twitter to deny the reports -- his rumored new girlfriend, Miss Universe Albania Angela Martini, had something to say about it.

"I find it funny that everyone is talking about me dating Kanye West when he is photographed on the balcony kissing some girl," Martini tells GlobalGrind.com. "What man in their right mind would be dating me and kissing some other girl?"

Martini, a model represented by NEXT Model Management, has reportedly been dating the 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' creator for several months.

"They are dating," a source revealed to the NY Daily News. "I just don't know if it's exclusive." A second informant disclosed that the 5-foot-10-inch brunette "really likes" West and is "hoping they'll announce a relationship soon." The publication reached out to West's camp for a confirmation but were unsuccessful in getting a response.

If the pair were indeed coupled up behind-the-scenes, West's recent antics at Cannes kissing the blonde in question may have squashed all hopes of securing a promising relationship with Martini.
