Kanye West’s on/off girlfriend Amber Rose claims the rap superstar saved her life by helping launch her modeling career.
Rose landed a string of modeling gigs after she first appeared on Kanye’s arm at a string of red carpet events last year.

And she insists his career help saved from an early grave.

Rose, who grew up in poverty in Philadelphia, tells YRB Magazine, “Honestly, Kanye saved my life, and I don’t even think about what I would have been; I just think about what I’m going to be.

“I don’t look at myself as a celebrity. I’m just a dope chick from South Philly! I mean, it’s crazy when fans come up to me and cry and just want a hug from me. It bugs me out! But it’s really cool.”
