I did not see this one coming. Kanye West, who's in the process of divorcing Kim Kardashian, is reportedly seeing supermodel Irina Shayk. While Kardashian was posting a sweet tribute to him on Instagram for his birthday, West was in France with his new love interest, according to witnesses.
Per TMZ, Kanye West and Irina Shayk were spotted on June 8 walking together around a luxury boutique hotel, and they appeared to be an item. The outlet's source claims the relationship is definitely romantic but not necessarily serious. The article also points out that Shayk has modeled in a Yeezy show and that she's name-checked in his song “Christian Dior Denim Flow.” She even appeared in the music video for West's 2020 song “Power,” staring down the camera.
(FWIW, this news has been circulating on a few gossip sites for a couple weeks now, and it's already been added to Shayk's Wikipedia—which anyone can edit.)
If things do get serious, though, Shayk might want to watch the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians for some info on West's recent breakup. In the latest episode we see Kardashian cry and say, “[West] deserves someone that can go support his every move and go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming. I can’t do that…. I feel like a fucking failure that it’s, like, a third fucking marriage. I feel like a fucking loser. But I can’t even think about that. I want to be happy.” News of their split first broke in early 2021.
Shayk has no other marriages in her own past, but she was previously with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo and then actor Bradley Cooper, with whom she shares a daughter.
Of course, we'll keep you posted on this surprising (rumored) relationship. Check back for details.
