Rapper Kanye West celebrated his 44th birthday on June 9. Months after ending his marriage of 7 years with Kim Kardashian, it is now reported that the music mogul has been going out with model Irina Shayk.
As per reports by Daily Mail, the couple was spotted together vacationing in France. This marks Kanye’s first appearance with a woman since his split with Kim.
A source told TMZ, “they are 100% romantically together, but our sources say it’s unclear how serious they are at this point.”
In 2019, after dating for about four years, Irina Shayk and actor Bradley Cooper decided to call it quits. They are peacefully sharing custody of their daughter, Lea De Seine.
In her first interview (2019) since parting ways with Cooper, Shayk revealed that she still believes in the institution of marriage and hasn't given up on love.
In a candid interaction with Harper's Bazaar, the Russian model revealed, Do I believe in marriage, yes, of course. I'm not the kind of person who is against it."
For Shayk and Cooper, the months leading up to their breakup were plagued by harsh rumours. The speculations of both parting ways reached an all-time high during awards season as Cooper promoted 'A Star Is Born' with his co-star and onscreen love interest, Lady Gaga.
On the other hand, a source close to Kim told The Sun that she “doesn't buy into the Irina rumours at all."
“To her, it's some attention seeking no one who tried to piggy back some clout off their wedding anniversary. Even if it is true, I doubt she'll even be upset at this point,” added the source.
Kim filed for divorce from Kanye after nearly seven years of marriage. Amid their split, the pair are continuing to prioritise the well-being of their four kids: 7-year-old North,5-year-old Saint,2-year-old Chicago and Psalm, who turned 2.
