Kanye West Had To Wash Off Amber Rose With '30 Showers' Before Dating Kim Kardashian

That's a lot of showers.

Amber Rose got into a nasty exchange with Khloe Kardashian on Twitter earlier this week, and now she's trending again, thanks to Kanye West's less-than-flattering comments about her during an interview with The Breakfast Club.

Kanye's sit-down with Power 105 aired on Friday morning (Feb. 20), and while he was gushing about his wife, Kim Kardashian, 'Ye was asked if he'll reach out to Amber Rose, and politely ask her to stop talking about his new family.

The answer was no, but it came with just a little shade.

"She's just soaking in the moment," he said, adding that he's responsible for Amber Rose's fame. "If Kim had dated me when I first wanted to be with her, there wouldn't be an Amber Rose."

Amber Rose has long alleged that Kim Kardashian texted nude photos to Kanye West while she was still dating him -- but he denies that, and again, threw a little more shade.

"I wish," he said, when asked if he did receive naked photos from Kim.

"It's very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that's with Amber Rose," he continued. "So she wasn't sending nothing. I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim."

Ouch.

"Don't ask me no more," Kanye said laughing. "I wanna be respectful."

On another note, he doesn't think that marrying into the Kardashian family has hurt it's brand. "It's helped," he admitted. "'Cause it just showed my ability, [for example], to bring Mos Def into the studio with Jay Z...my ability to bridge the gap."
