Kanye West and ‘wife' Bianca Censori have certainly been making headlines while on their trip to Italy. Kanye West, 46, was recently spotted baring his bottom out on a boat ride and Bianca Censori, 28, has raised eyebrows by wearing nude bodysuits.

Fans have started to raise their concerns for Bianca after seeing before and after pictures of her and the complete transformation she has undergone since starting her relationship with Kanye West. One person wrote on social media “Poor girl. She looks miserable,” another added “That poor woman needs help. She looks miserable. Free Bianca!”

The rapper married the Australian architectural designer in a non-legally binding ceremony in January. Previous to his relationship with Bianca, Kanye dated model Julia Fox and was married to Kim Kardashian.

Now it seems Kim Kardashian is also concerned for Bianca.  According to The Mirror source, Kim is “watching the situation with Kanye and Bianca open-mouthed" and is shocked at "how reminiscent it is of how Kanye was with her. She says she can see Bianca being moulded into Kanye's ideal of the perfect woman." 

Kanye famously cleared out Kim Kardashian’s closet in an episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’ In the resurfaced clip from series seven, Kanye brings in his stylist to help clear out Kim’s closet and give her an image overhaul. In scenes that are difficult to watch Kanye can be seen removing clothes from Kim's wardrobe.

It’s not just Bianca Censori and Kim Kardashian the rapper has transformed. Model Julia Fox revealed to Interview magazine that after their second date, Kanye West gifted her a “hotel suite full of new clothes” soon after he convinced her to get rid of almost all of her old clothes.

Kanye West has his own fashion brand ‘Yeezy’ so as a fashion designer it makes sense he would have an opinion on his partners' outfits. But when does giving an opinion and treating your other half to clothes turn into toxic and controlling behaviour? 

Relationship expert Betsy Chung told the Daily Mail that it can be a "healthy sign" to "dress alike, and enjoy the same activities," but "it can be a major red flag of controlling behaviour if the influence seems one-sided, and results in one partner completely giving up parts of their personal identity."
