A Venetian boat rental company has banned Kanye West and his Australian “wife” Bianca Censori for life following their lewd behaviour on one of their water taxis. The couple sparked outrage last week when they were seen engaging in a seemingly explicit moment on one of the company’s boats in the Italian city, with the rapper exposing his buttocks.
West, 46, was seated at the back of the boat while Censori‘s head was near his lap. The 28-year-old, who has outraged locals in the picturesque city with her revealing choice of clothes, took off her coat to reveal a strapless flesh-coloured outfit. When they departed the boat, West’s trousers appeared to be down. Venezia Turismo Motoscafi from the company that rented the boat to West and Censori, has confirmed the couple are ‘no longer welcome’ aboard their taxis.
“On board, the driver had to keep a lookout for traffic and did not see these obscenities,” the company said in a statement. “If this had happened, he would have immediately disembarked and reported the transgressors to those in authority. “In addition, there was a third person on board the taxi, who accompanied Mr and Mrs West, who obstructed the captain’s view to the stern in any case.” The third person was a woman who was seemingly chaperoning the couple during their Italian stay.
“We completely dissociate ourselves from such acts and behaviour,” they continued. “Mr West and his wife will certainly no longer be welcome on board our company’s boats.” Venezia Turismo Motoscafi is one of Venice’s top private navigation companies that often transports a string of famous faces the likes of Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. The incident comes after the couple have been criticised for their controversial wardrobe choices while in Italy. Censori, in particular, has come under fire for dressing provocatively in the conservative Catholic country.
On numerous occasions she’s been seen out wearing see-through outfits that clearly show off her bare breasts, including a nude catsuit. The couple’s whirlwind romance came to light late last year and in January they reportedly exchanged vows during a non-legally binding wedding ceremony in Beverly Hills, about two months after the controversial father-of-four’s divorce to reality star Kim Kardashian was finalised.
