Amber Rose says insists her new boyfriend is not a "downgrade" from Kanye West.

The model split from the 'Stronger' hitmaker last year and is now dating rapper Wiz Khalifa and while he is not as famous as her ex, she is a lot happier with him.

She said: "There's no comparison in personalities. You know when people say, 'How do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, that's a downgrade.' But the only question I can ask them is, 'Have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all."

Although Amber had vowed never to get involved with another musician following her relationship with Kanye, she couldn't help falling for Wiz.

She revealed to King magazine: "I chilled with him for two weeks. We didn't kiss or nothing. Then he left for Pittsburgh and when he left I was so lost without him.

"He is a grown man about his business and a positive person who always has a smile on his face."

While she is happy with Wiz, Amber has previously admitted she was bisexual and could fall in love with a man or a woman.

She said: "I'm extremely open about my sexuality."
