Kanye West & Irina Shayk were ‘100% romantically together’ in France

The rumor going around Deuxmoi a few weeks ago was that Kanye West and Irina Shayk had started up something. I thought the rumor was hella random, especially since we know that Kanye has spent much of the past year in Wyoming, and Irina has spent all of her post-Bradley Cooper time in New York. It’s possible that Irina and Kanye – who have been friendly for years – were talking on the phone and stuff like that. But Irina practically got photographed every day in NYC in the past year. Are you telling me that Kanye was able to slip into the city to start a thing with Irina? Apparently so, at least according to TMZ.

Kanye West is moving on from estranged wife Kim Kardashian, and he’s doing it with … Irina freakin’ Shayk!!! Ye and the supermodel were spotted out and about in the French region of Provence on Tuesday, his 44th birthday, btw. They were seen smiling and strolling around on the grounds of a luxury boutique hotel with some friends, but also by themselves … looking very much like a couple.

TMZ has confirmed they are 100% romantically together, but our sources say it’s unclear how serious they are at this point. In other words, yeah … they’re banging. Definitely FWB status, at the very least.

The big news comes on the heels of Kim, and others in the fam, publicly wishing Kanye a happy birthday with social media posts. It’s been less than 4 months since KK filed for divorce … and it appears Kanye’s already got himself a new squeeze.

Ye and Irina, who has a daughter with Bradley Cooper, have some professional history together — she’s modeled for Yeezy in the past during a fashion show, and he’s even name-dropped her in songs before too. So yeah, they’re not total strangers by any means.

While I bet this gets under Kim’s skin a bit – Irina is younger and her body wasn’t carved by a surgeon – I also think Kim is probably kind of relieved? Kim’s been over it for a while and I would guess that she hoped Kanye would be the first one to publicly “move on.” Now Kim gets to come out and introduce her new boyfriend, whoever that may be (it’s not Van Jones). As for Irina… she just does not have a type. Or maybe her type is “you’ll never guess.” To go from Cristiano Ronaldo to Bradley Cooper to Kanye West? What is that? Brains are not wired for that. I also think it’s weird because in interviews, she comes across as someone very rooted in reality, a Russian supermodel-mom who prefers quiet nights with friends, soap operas and being a mom. Kanye’s life is not like that.

    I’m shocked that anyone other than a thirsty famewhore would get involved with Kayne, I really am. and i don’t think she’s that.

    He must have charms that…escape me.

  2. Laalaa says:

    I think she just lives her life the way she wants to. She doesn’t have to marry the guy

  3. Merricat says:

    Maybe she’s attracted to intensity, rather than physical traits.

    • Heat says:

      I think you’re right. But that intensity would get to be a bit much, after a while.
      Anyone, who hasn’t been living under a rock, knows that Kanye’s “intensity” is better described as manic.
      He is a walking red flag, covered in a thousand mini red flags, wearing red flag Yeezy’s.

    • MCV says:

      Cristiano Ronaldo is an egocenticral a**hole just like Kanye so maybe you’re right.

      • Oliee says:

        CR7 may have his issues, but he is extremely hardworking and donates A LOT to charity

  4. Soupie says:

    Eyeroll. That’s all I’ve got.

  5. MCV says:

    irina sis… her taste in men is tragic.
    Very interesting that all the men she’s dated have had gay rumours…

  6. FHMom says:

    I don’t know. Cristiano, Bradley Cooper, Kanye. I do see a pattern, at least if you believe the gossip.

  7. goofpuff says:

    The picture where she is pushing the stroller and walking is weird. How does that work without killing your wrist? can a planned photo paparazzi photo be more obvious?

  8. why? says:

    TMZ’s sources are Kris and Kim. No one should be surprised that this article about Kanye and Irina has come out, it’s to distract from Khloe’s water bottle fiasco. I said that the Kardashians would use the victimhood con or start releasing negative stories about their exes/women whom they perceive as their rivals. Cue a “source” confirming that Kanye has moved on with Irina and the first to be papped with a new partner, which will be followed next week by that same source confirming that Kanye dumped Irina and picked Kim and his kids over her. Can the press please stop with the “Kim is over Kanye” narrative because had Trump won, Kim would still be married to Kanye and exploiting his mental illness because having access to the White House for staged photo-ops was her and Kris’ top priority. If Kim was over Kanye, she wouldn’t feel the need to put out articles about other men desiring her as if she was trying to make Kanye jealous.

    The press is really buying into the storyline that Kim hasn’t publicly introduced her new boyfriend or been papped with another man out of respect for her marriage to Kanye? Kim, the same woman who blamed her children for failing the baby bar when she didn’t study as much as she claimed and her son for giving Covid to the entire family even though they spent the pandemic traveling and partying? Kim hasn’t been papped with a new man because Kim and Kris are having trouble finding someone to fill that spot, which is why Kim and Kris were reduced to putting out stories about how Drake, Van Jones, and basketball players all want to date Kim.

    • Darla says:

      I’m almost curious enough to google what a water bottle fiasco could possible be, but…is it funny?

  9. Starkille says:

    I would question the veracity of this simply because I can’t imagine how he would have gotten into France. US citizens are banned from the EU due to the US being a cesspool of Covid.

  10. bobafelty says:

    I hope this makes sense…but I view Kanye (and Kim) as being very asexual. I know Kim projects super sex kitten in a lot of her photos, but it all seems performative. I’ve never seen her have that type of chemistry in her real-life interactions with people. Not with any of her husbands of boyfriends. Kanye is more introverted, but same vibe. That’s why I thought they were a good business couple and would stick together.

    • Normades says:

      Absolutely. This is not a love affair but about Kayne getting a new blow up dress up doll.

      She’s always been up for the fake relationships with really rich dudes.

  11. LillyfromLillooet says:

    This and Jen and Ben mach 2…this is a highly satisfying gossip summer.

  12. Cherie says:

    I want this to be true and I want them to have children. Because that would be epic for gossip.

  13. Emily says:

    Isn’t Ronaldo a cheating d*ck? And Bradley has serial killer vibes. Kanye’s ego.

    Irina has a type, just not a physical type.

  14. Rainbow says:

    Wow she looks amazing. Her body is to die for.

  15. P says:

    At the same time, all kardashians were IG happy bday Kanye!! We love you!!
    All while he was banging Irina Shayk. LOL.

  17. StormsMama says:

    Anyone else grossed out by the assumptive tone ? They are “banging” “FWB”
    Wtf? So gross TMZ

  18. ME says:

    Irina was in one of his videos years ago, and walked in one of his fashion shows. He also mentioned her in one of his songs. Seems like he may have always had a thing for her? The thing is, didn’t Kanye say something about not engaging in pre-marital relations? Is he not a religious man anymore lol? As for Kim, meh. She’s probably the one who ran to TMZ with the story. This makes her look good. Like he’s the one who wasn’t trying to make the marriage work because he had someone else he was interested in. There is no way Kim is cool with this new relationship. Anyone, even if you hated your ex, would be a little hurt they moved on so quickly.

  19. MM2 says:

    She’s attracted to narcissists. If I was in Vegas, I’d bet one (or both) of her parents are narcissists & that’s where she feels comfortable. She might be a narcissist herself, or more likely, highly empathetic, which is why these men want to lock her down.

    • Mariposa says:

      I agree – she seems to be attracted to people who have higher-than-normal levels of narc traits. Whilst most people would run a mile, she gets something from being with them. Either they allow her to feel like she’s the one in control (when really it’s them!) or she’s really empathetic and probably trying to earn love and recognition from someone who is psychologically incapable of giving it to her.

  20. You Know Me says:

    Pretty sure she is a paid assistant (no sex involved) to keep him inline & not be alone

  21. Jules says:

    This is all so hilarious. I watched a video of her doing her skincare routine for Vogue or some magazine, and she is totally over the top and dramatic. Like an eccentric socialite. Definitely in her own world and this pairing makes sense, in a hot mess way. She just upstaged Kim. Here for the drama!

    • Jayna says:

      I loved her Vogue makeup video. I liked a lot of her tips. But she’s overdone her top lip. Her old video on Letterman a decade ago her lips looked better, still full, but not like in the Vogue video.
