Kanye West is attempting to distract from the anti-Semitic posts that got him booted off social media over the weekend by going on dates with a new girlfriend, a source tells Page Six.
A source tells us that West — who has become increasingly unpredictable — is “trying to drown out [the headlines about anti-Semitism] with other content.”
The source further explained, “The new girlfriend — whatever is next — it’s to try and make people forget.”
Over the weekend, West tweeted he was going to go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” referencing the U.S. military alertness system “defcon,” and leaned into anti-Semitic tropes.
West also posted a subsequently deleted screenshot of a text exchange with Sean Love Combs, aka Diddy, in which he suggested the mogul was being controlled by Jewish people.
The posts were removed and West was locked out of Twitter and Instagram.

Amidst the backlash, West was spotted on a date in Santa Monica, Calif., with a “mystery woman” — who turned out to be model Juliana Nalú. The pair were photographed at celeb favorite Giorgio Baldi restaurant and going clothing shopping.
They were also photographed on a second date, seeing “Triangle of Sadness” at a movie theater in Hollywood.
West — who has also been receiving backlash for showing “White Lives Matter” T-shirts at his latest fashion show in Paris — also released a 30-minute YouTube clip over the weekend called “Last Week.”
The footage made headlines for showing West playing a pornographic film for shocked Adidas executives during a recent meeting.
The company’s partnership with West is under review due to the scandal surrounding the offensive t-shirts.
Sources close to West tell Page Six they’re deeply concerned that his behavior is the result of a mental break, and they believe it’s the most serious such episode that the rapper has suffered.
West was hospitalized because of mental health problems in 2016, and in 2019 he said that he suffers from bipolar disorder.
