Kanye West and ex-fiancée Alexis Phifer, during happier times.

Every since Amber Rose was reportedly telling people that Kanye West physically abused her during their relationship, there have been rumors about Kanye's being a woman-beater, but now In Touch is reporting that Alexis Phifer, Kanye's ex-fiancée, also has similar tales to tell.

According to information gleaned by In Touch from a close friend of Alexis Phifer's, Kanye's an abuser, and that's what led to their breakup in 2008 after an 18-month engagement.

The source claims that during a Fourth of July party held at the couple's house, Alexis stumbled upon Kanye looking at a naked photo of Kim Kardashian on his phone. Alexis was apparently actually friends with Kim before she met Kanye, but when she asked him about the photo, he got mad.

He said he couldn't control who sent him the photos, the source said. But then he started getting dramatic - huffing and puffing and making a bid deal. (Kanye, making a big deal of something?? We're shocked!)

They went outside, the source continued, and Kanye pushed Alexis into some bushes with all his force. She was wearing a t-shirt and she got cuts and scratches everywhere and was bleeding. She was crying. And then what'd he do? He just left her there. He got in his car and drove away.

This comes after Kanye himself in a leaked email obtained by Media Take Out claimed, to a female admirer, that in addition to cheating on him all the time, Amber Rose – his ex-girlfriend and now Wiz Khalifa's finacée – told people I beat her and all kind of wild sh*t.

This is of course not the only Kim-and-cell-phone related bit of gossip that's leaked out of about Kanye recently. Kanye West recently ended his quickie relationship with Kim Kardasian after she tried to bring her reality show cameras along with them for the Watch the Throne Euro-tour, MediaTakeOut is reporting. The popular gossip site claims that a good friend of Kanye fed them the exclusive, anonymous tip.

According to MTO's source the hot and heavy relationship hit a speedbump when Hip-Hop mogul Kanye West invited reality TV star Kim Kardashian to join him, Jay-Z and Beyonce on the European leg of their Watch The Throne tour.

Kim said yes, and then went behind Kanye's back and arranged to have her reality show TV crew join her and record Kanye, Jay-Z and Beyonce for her trashy show. When Kanye found out he quickly ended the relationship, uninviting Kardasian and unceremoniously dumping her.

News of the relationship between what some people have described as the 'two most narcissistic people in the world' first broke when Kim Kardashian was spotted leaving Kanye's house in the morning in the same clothing she was wearing the previous night when she went in. That same day Kanye released a song in which he rapped about falling for Kim while she was still dating Chris Humphries.

Kanye's song Theraflu included the lyrics: And I'll admit, I had fell in love with Kim / Around the time she had fell in love with him / Well that's cool, baby girl, do ya thang / Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team.

TMZ claimed that the two had been 'eyeing' each other since 2004. However, TMZ's source maintained that they never acted inappropriately while Kanye was with Amber Rose, or while Kim was with Kris Humphries.
