It’s cold for Kanye West in a post-Kardashian world, but, rest assured, he inexplicably has his down jacket without a zipper and maybe a new girlfriend to keep him warm.
Four, five seconds (OK, months) after the rapper and Kim Kardashian put their six-year marriage on ice, officially dissolving the institution known as Kimye, he seems to move on with the Russian model. world famous Irina Shayk.
The aggressively random duo were spotted vacationing in the south of France this week. In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, they can be seen walking through the grounds of a luxury boutique hotel in the Provence region of the country, where West is said to have spent his birthday with Shayk and a group of friends.
“They were taking pictures of each other and the sculptures,” a witness told E! New. “They looked incredibly happy and relaxed. It was just them and a few friends.
“She looks dazzled. He invited her to France and she gladly accepted, “an anonymous People source added.” They are not officially dating, but there is interest from both sides. “
TMZ, meanwhile, is set to declare the couple “100% romantically together,” while a Us Weekly source said they “have been seeing each other quietly for the past few months.”
The photos come weeks after the @TwoMe celebrity gossip account sparked rumors that West and Shayk were secretly dating following each of their high-profile breakups. Shayk parted ways with actor and director Bradley Cooper in 2019 after four years together and a very memorable love affair at Wimbledon. The former couple share a daughter, Lea De Seine, 4.
Kardashian and West are still working out the details of their divorce, both agreeing to joint physical and legal custody of their four children – daughters North, 7, and Chicago, 3; and the sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 2 – in April.
The two have apparently kept things relatively drama-free since their split, with the SKIMS founder publicly stating that she loved the rapper “for life” in a post celebrating his birthday on Tuesday.
As for West and Shayk (are we ready to decide on IrinYe or Kanyk?), They actually share a bit of history. Years ago, she briefly appeared in the music video for her song “Power” yes, the same one that was used to promote Cooper’s thriller “Limitless” – and appeared on West’s Fall / Winter fashion show for Paris Fashion Week in 2012.
He also named her in his 2010 song “Christian Dior Denim Flow”, rapping on the track “I Want To See Irina Shayk Beside Doutzen”.
But, thankfully, there has been little overlap between Shayk and Kardashian over the years, with a People source noting that the model “isn’t friends with Kim at all, so there’s no quirk there- in”.
