Kanye West and his wife could face legal action after their steamy boat antics pissed off an entire country.
In addition to being permanently banned from Venetian boat rental company Venezia Turismo Motascafi, West and Bianca Censori, are now the subject of a police investigation. Days ago, West was pictured sitting aboard a water taxi in Venice owned by the company with his bare bottom out as Censori was seen on her knees. Nevertheless, their odd behavior was interpreted as a sex act by several witnesses who reported the couple.
“We completely dissociate ourselves from such acts and behaviour. Mr. West and his wife will certainly no longer be welcome on board our company’s boats,” a spokesperson for Venezia Turismo Motascafi said.
Multiple officials have expressed outrage for the intimacy playing out in public, including Councilor For Public Security Elisabetta Pesce.
“Without any shadow of doubt, what we saw from the couple was a lack of respect for Venice, which is the most enchanting city in the world,” she told the Daily Mail. Several other law enforcement sources confirmed that the couple was being investigated for violating “standards of public decorum.” Charges are possible.
The stunt comes as West continues to keep a somewhat low profile after his anti-Black and antisemitism rants, which led to him losing his lucrative Adidas Yeezy deal. His ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, was reportedly “desperately embarrassed and worried” when the images of West’s “suns out, buns out” moment hit the internet. An insider told The Sun that she was concerned with having to explain the situation to their four children, North, Psalm, Saint, and Chicago.
West has yet to speak out about the mid-day river rendezvous, though it does seem like an incident poised for rap lyrics.
