Kim Kardashian West‘s ex-husband, rapper Kanye West, is already moving on with a new girlfriend. West recently celebrated his 44th birthday in France and was spotted strolling with supermodel Irina Shayk in the Provence region.
TMZ reports that its sources have confirmed that West and Shayk are romantically involved, but it’s unclear whether the relationship is serious. This is the first time West has been spotted out in public with another woman since his split with Kardashian West.
Kardashian West filed for divorce in February 2021 and has said nothing but nice things about West in public. She wished her ex-husband a happy birthday on Instagram, writing “Love U for Life!” on a picture of her and West with their children.
Khloe Kardashian also posted an Instagram photo celebrating West’s birthday, calling him her “brother for life.”
How Did West and Shayk Meet?
Shayk has been acquainted with West since at least 2010 when she appeared in the music video for his song, “POWER.”
In April, Shayk was seen wearing a DMX tribute shirt designed by Balenciaga in collaboration with West.
Shayk Is on Good Terms With Cooper
Similar to West and Kardashian West’s co-parenting relationship, Shayk is also on good terms with her ex, Bradley Cooper. However, Shayk doesn’t like the term “co-parenting.” In March 2021 she told Elle magazine, “when I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad. Co-parenting is parenting.”
She also told the magazine that she doesn’t like talking publicly about her split from the “A Star Is Born” actor. “My past relationship, it’s something that belongs to me, and it’s private,” Shayk said.
Page Six reported that Cooper and Shayk were spotted taking their daughter to Russian lessons together in March 2021. Shayk was the first Russian model to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine.
Shayk also previously dated professional soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. The pair broke up in 2015. Hello! Magazine reported that shortly after the breakup, Shayk potentially took a dig at Ronaldo by suggesting he was unfaithful to her. She said, “I love honest men and I love a man who is loyal to women.”
What Does Kim Kardashian West Think About West and Shayk?

The source told the Sun that Kardashian West is “not bothered at all about it, no one in her circle appears to care or believe it. Even if it is true, I doubt she’ll even be upset at this point.”
