Meet Kanye West’s Newest BFF, Cassius Marcellus Cornelius Clay

Stars, they’re just like us: They meet some of their best friends over the shoe sale at Barneys. Meet Cassius Marcellus Cornelius Clay. He’s the blue-blooded, preppy-to-the-max new buddy of Kanye West. The two apparently met when Kanye fell head-over-heels for a fancy pair of Italian shoes Clay was wearing, while on a fashion spree at Barneys. The two bonded over their love of fancy man items, exchanged numbers and embarked on an epic bromance. The 20-year-old Yale sophomore, who goes by Cassius Clay (and yes, he shares a name with Mohammed Ali), has since dropped out of school to follow West around, offering sage wisdom and fashion advice.

And sure we smell a hoax, but we so badly want to be believe this is real. Eat your heart out, Amber Rose! [IvyGate]
