James Kennedy seems to be living up to his self-appointed title as "the white Kanye."

Weeks after the Vanderpump Rules star got dumped by his co-star and former fiancée, Raquel Leviss, he jetted off to Las Vegas for some flirtatious fun – which he was sure to document on his Instagram Story for all 520,000 of his followers to see.

On Monday, the freshly turned 30-year-old reality star posted a video of himself holding hands with a female brunette companion while exploring Meow Wolf's Omega Mart at AREA15, an immersive art and entertainment center in Sin City.

The mystery woman appeared in several of the DJ's photos and videos from the getaway, which was in honor of his milestone birthday.

He gushed with gratitude for his "best friends," who he said made the celebration so special.

Despite his recent claims that the two are on friendly terms, Raquel was noticeably absent from the trip.

Earlier this month, the 27-year-old SUR server told co-star Scheana Shay that she was so petrified to call off the engagement that she waited until she was "safe" to do so, explaining that her fear of James' temper kept her from breaking up with him when she wanted to.

"It was kind of at Thanksgiving where I realized that I didn't want to be in this relationship anymore," revealed Raquel.

"And because James does have a history of acting out and being angry, my mom and I were both concerned that he wasn't going to have a good reaction when I told him," added the former pageant queen, "so I wasn't planning on saying anything until he went out of town."

Right before they filmed the reunion, which begins airing tonight, Leviss said she and Kennedy got into what would be their final argument as a couple.

They were watching back episodes of the season in order to prepare for the big day, which caused her to reflect on both their relationship and James as a person. She told the musician she didn't feel supported by him emotionally and that she didn't like the way he behaved toward other people.

"A piece of me dies inside each time you mistreat somebody," Raquel recalled explaining to James, whose outbursts have caused him many jobs and relationships throughout the years, even after he got sober.

Leviss said her concerns about their future together also led to her decision, as she began to notice that Kennedy wasn't "meshing well" with her family.

"The future of Thanksgivings and Christmases and holidays was looking like it was going to be either James' or my family," she told Shay. "Especially if we had a baby, James would make my parents out as the not good grandparents and kind of put that in [our kids'] heads."

"Foreseeing this future and what it was all coming down to," she said, "I don't want that."
