Billionaire rapper Kanye West and Russian supermodel Irina Shayk are rumored to be dating. The pair were spotted together in Provence in the South of France spending time together as part of West’s 44th birthday celebrations, Harpers Bazaar reports.
Photos obtained by the Daily Mail show West and the 35-year-old taking a stroll on the premises of a luxury boutique hotel with a few friends tagging along.
“They were taking pictures of each other and the sculptures,” a source said, according to E! News. “They looked incredibly happy and relaxed. It was just them and a few friends.”
“Kanye photographed Irina any chance he could. She loved posing for him, and he got very into what he was creating with his photographs. She looks like his muse,” another source disclosed.
Neither of the pair has confirmed these romance rumors nor dispel them. Shayk is the first woman that has been spotted publicly in the company of West whose reality star wife Kim Kardashian filed a divorce in February this year.
The pair have maintained a platonic relationship ever since they met on the set of West’s “Power” video in 2010, where Shayk, then an upcoming model, had a cameo. She’s also modeled West’s apparel in a Paris fashion show in the past.
However, their friendship could be blooming into something beautiful because another source revealed that they spent three nights at the luxe Villa La Coste hotel before heading to New York on June 9.
TMZ says they are 100% together romantically.
Both are single and their relationships with their famous exes have come to an end. While West is still navigating the dynamics of his divorce with Kim who still signs autographs with West as her surname, Shayk and her long-time actor boyfriend Bradley Cooper called it quits in 2019.
“The Good Life” singer and Yeezy mogul shares four children with Kim, daughters North, Chicago, and sons Saint, and Psalm. Shayk is co-parenting her daughter with Cooper and is often photographed having a good time together doing so.
The underlying statement is, there is no bad blood between the rumored couple and their exes. A source close to Kim reveals she’s “happy” for West.
