Following his divorce from Kim Kardashian, the Yeezy mogul is rumored to be dating Russian supermodel Irina Shayk. According to an anonymous tipster on the Instagram gossip account DeuxMoi (via The Daily Mail), West is “now secretly dating Irina Shayk aka Bradley Cooper’s baby mama.”
However, the dating claim remains unsubstantiated. “After further looking into this, I don’t know if ‘dating’ is the right word, but there is perhaps some interest there,” writes DeuxMoi.
Another tipster told DeuxMoi that Irina and Kanye are “def dating.”
While the relationship may come as a surprise to some, the two have a history. Back in 2010, the runway model was featured as an angel in Kanye’s “Power” video. She also modeled in his Yeezy show at Paris Fashion Week and was recently spotted wearing a DMX tribute shirt that Kanye designed with Balenciaga. Additionally, Kanye name-checked Shayk on 2010’s “Christian Dior Denim Flow.”
Both were previously in high-profile relationships. Shayk split from actor Bradley Cooper in 2019 after four years of dating. The former couple shares a 4-year-old daughter. In February, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye after nearly seven years of marriage.
Following their separation, Page Six reported that West wanted to date “an artist and a creative person,” so “they can speak the same language to each other.”
