*Supermodel Chanel Iman is dismissing reports she’s deating rapper Kanye West.

The Victoria’s Secret model was first linked to West last month after he invited her to walk the runway in Paris for his Womenswear collection.

The couple has been photographed together at a handful of events ever since, but Iman insists the rapper has always been a big supporter of her career and that their relationship is strictly platonic.

“Rumors are rumors,” She tells WENN. “I think Kanye is a great artist, he’s very talented, I’ve always loved his music. He’s an incredible performer. He’s really cool, he’s always had my back when I have to get in those Kanye West concerts. I always got in no problem. Backstage, no problem. I have the most respect for him, he has the most respect for me.”

Coincidentally, West is due to perform at the upcoming Victoria’s Secret fashion show in New York later this month.
