On Kanye Chasing Her:
In 2008, rapper Kanye West became obsessed with Amber’s unique look after seeing her dancing in the Ludacris “What Them Girls Like” video. Amber, whose father is Irish and whose mother is from Cape Verde, stood out in a sea of video vixens.
“I was home in The Bronx, and he called me on my cellphone,” she recalled. “I’d never met him before. He was like, ‘Hey, it’s Kanye.”
She promptly hung up on him, mistaking the famous rapper for a prank caller.
Kanye called back and finally convinced her he was serious about flying her to LA to star in his Robocop video.
On Meeting Wiz:
But she was single for only a few months before she met Wiz Khalifa via Twitter.
“I was scared, because he’s four years younger than me, and he’s in the same industry as Kanye and I was so over all that,” said Amber. “All odds were against him, but I couldn’t fight the feeling. Wiz is the better man.”
