Kanye West & Alexis Phifer

Kanye used his split from Alexis Phifer, to whom he was engaged for 18 months, as fodder for his bitter fourth album, 808s & Heartbreak. "How could you be so Dr. Evil?/Bringing out a side of me I don't know," he sang on "Heartless," before repeatedly calling her a "spoiled little L.A. girl" on "Robocop."
