Kanye West and Bianca Censori have allegedly faced a ban from a renowned Venice Water Taxi company due to committing a lewd act aboard one of the company’s vessels.
The rapper, who has made headlines with his artistic endeavors and personal life, was spotted with Australian architectural designer Censori during a boat excursion in Venice on August 27th.
However, some of the images captured during their outing displayed a rather compromising scenario. West, 46, was photographed with his pants lowered, revealing his exposed backside, while Censori, aged 28, appeared to be in a crouched position between his legs.
In light of the released photos, the taxi company has issued a formal statement declaring that the high-profile couple is no longer welcome on their future voyages. Both West and Censori have been barred from utilizing the company’s services.
A spokesperson representing Venezia Turismo Motoscafi, a company known for catering to celebrity clientele that reportedly includes individuals like Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, and Ben Affleck, clarified that the boat’s operator had not observed “these indecent acts” due to their primary focus on navigating water traffic.
The company released a statement, saying that the driver had not seen “these obscenities” because they were looking out for traffic on the water.
The statement added that if the driver had witnessed the couple engaging in any lewd behaviour, they 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 statement read. “We completely dissociate ourselves from such acts and behaviour. Mr West and his wife will certainly no longer be welcome on board our company’s boats.”
West and Censori have not yet responded to requests for comments on the incident.
Reports suggest that the couple had a non-legally binding ceremony earlier this year, making their public debut together in January. This event supposedly occurred two months after West finalized his divorce from reality TV personality Kim Kardashian, concluding their six-year marriage. The former couple shares four children together.
