the rapper formerly known as Kanye West and his Kim Kardashian lookalike girlfriend, Chaney Jones, were reported to have broken up earlier this week†
It seems, however, we stand corrected.
Hours after multiple media outlets reported the break up between the model, 24, and Ye, 45, was confirmed, Jones shared a video montage to her Instagram Story wishing her beau a happy birthday, complete with an “I love you.” Watch above.

the DONDA artist was born on June 8, and Jones’ video included photos and footage of the not-quite-former couple smiling, holding hands, and laughing on various dates, putting break up rumours to rest.
“Happy birthday baby ,” Jones wrote alongside the montage. “I love youuuuu.”
Ye’s appearance on Jones’ Instagram profile comes as a surprise to fans, who noticed the model had recently scrubbed all photos of the Yeezy mogul from her account.

The exodus of posts featuring Ye or references to the rapper, including one where Jones showed off a tattoo she had inked on her left elbow of the rapper’s namecame amid sources claiming to Page Six that the duo’s relationship had become “choppy” following their trip to Tokyo in May.
“You know how things are. Tomorrow they might be posted together again,” the source, who also said the split was due to Ye’s erratic behaviourtold the publication at the time.
Rumors of a split were further heightened when Ye was spotted at the movies with an unknown woman, who many believe to be influencer Monica Corgan.

Ye and Jones had been linked since February, around the time the artist split from Julia Fox†
a few weeks ago, Jones got the name ‘Ye’ tattooed on her wrist in black cursive handwriting, a permanent inscription she shared on her Instagram page at the time.
That post has since been deleted, and there was a brief period where the couple unfollowed each other on Instagram.
They now appear, however, to be following each other again.
