London: Supermodel Chanel Iman has dismissed reports that she is dating rapper Kanye West.

The Victoria`s Secret stunner was first linked to West last month after he invited her to walk the runway in Paris for the "Stronger" hitmaker`s new womenswear collection, reports

The couple have been photographed together at a handful of events ever since. But Iman insists the rapper has always been a big supporter of her career. She is adamant that their relationship is strictly platonic.

"Rumours are rumours. I think Kanye is a great artist, he`s very talented, I`ve always loved his music," she said.

"He`s an incredible performer. He`s really cool, he`s always had my back when I have to get in those Kanye West concerts. I always got in no problem. Backstage, no problem. I have the most respect for him, he has the most respect for me," she added.
