Kim Kardashian likes Irina Shayk because, get this, Irina is very discreet

kim kids 2021

Irina Shayk and Kanye West are together. Deuxmoi broke the story, I’m pretty sure. Ye and Irina have been happening, reportedly, for a few months at least. I still don’t understand the logistics of it, but I guess it’s possible that Irina flew into Wyoming to see him, or he was able to fly under the radar to New York to see her. I don’t get them as a couple, but God bless. That seems to be Kim Kardashian’s feeling as well – for now, there’s no drama coming from her end and she wishes them well:

It’s NBD to KKW. Four months after filing for divorce, Kim Kardashian isn’t stressing about Kanye West’s romance with Irina Shayk.

“Kim knew that Kanye and Irina were dating,” a source exclusively tells Us Weekly, noting that the Grammy winner, 44, and the model, 35, have “been quietly seeing each other for a couple of months.”

The budding relationship has the approval of the Skims CEO, 40, who was impressed with the way Shayk handled her split from Bradley Cooper. The Russia native and the A Star Is Born actor, 46, split in 2019 after four years together and share 3-year-old daughter Lea de Seine.

“Kim doesn’t mind because she saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley,” the insider explains, adding that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star “wouldn’t like” to see her estranged husband move on with someone “who’s going to talk to the press.”

Us exclusively confirmed West’s rebound romance on Wednesday, June 9, one month after rumors about the pair surfaced. “Irina and Kanye have been spending time together and getting to know one another,” a second source revealed. “He’s always thought she was beautiful and they’re both looking forward to seeing where this goes.”

I’m sorry what? Kim “wouldn’t like” to see her estranged husband move on with someone “who’s going to talk to the press.” Kim literally leaks this sh-t to Us Weekly. She was practically writing diary entries for People Magazine. She has fully briefed TMZ and Page Six for years about her life, her marriage, her businesses and her body. But sure, Kim is happy that her estranged husband is dating someone discreet for a change!! LMAO. Here’s a tip, Kim: I actually believe that you’re not too bothered, but find another reason to describe why you’re not bothered. How about “Irina seems like a cool person and she’s a great mom”?

    I absolutely believe that Kim loves the fact that Irina isn’t chatty with the press and is “discreet.” This allows her to control the narrative of their new family structure.

    • LovesitinNM says:

      Exactly this. No competing narrative. And no fame whore ahem.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      it also means she likely won’t spill any dirt on the K Klan that Kanye might let slip.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      I think it has to do with his mental health.
      Kim doesn’t want Ye’s mental health episodes, at their worst, blabbed to the press/media
      She often ran counter press to shield him – she’s hoping to pass on the baton safely

  2. Lady Luna says:

    I will never understand how celebrities move on so quickly without getting a divorce or working on themselves.

    • teehee says:

      I guess if you’re rich enough to not be so harmed by a split, they think nothing more of one?
      We learn most of our lessons by consequences and lots of money = fewer consequences.

    • Renee says:

      Exactly! It is why they keep repeating the same mistakes.

    • Justjj says:

      I imagine it’s actually rather lonely and isolating, married or not. Money is not an object for them. They need to keep people interested, it’s a publicity thing, they’ve been apart for longer than the public is aware… there are lots of reasons (?) it seems to me

    • Mel says:

      They barely lived in the same house at the same time, each has been doing what they want for years while maintaining a facade. There was nothing to move on from aside from PR/ IG opportunities.

    • Amando says:

      Not just celebrities, ANYONE. I need a long period between relationships to process and move on.

  3. Normades says:

    When this story first came up I actually believed it because it was just so random. Unless they were somehow together who would put those two together?
    Now whether this is a “real” relationship, a “PR” relationship (or both)… who knows. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  4. Emily H says:

    This story is SO bizarre. Why would any woman, much less a supermodel, look at what Kanye has done, said, etc. the past few years and think that he is a person stable enough to be in a relationship with? Something is not right here. And I don’t believe for a second that Kim would be cool with this…moving on so fast with someone younger, prettier, a real model (as opposed to a wanna-be). Maybe I am being petty, but I think she would be very jealous. Wonder if this story is planted by Pimp Mama K? Maybe it is not real? Gah!

    • lucy2 says:

      I can’t figure it out either. Not only all his own personal issues, but add in 4 little kids, an in the works divorce, and Kim as his ex…I’m shocked anyone other than a social climber would be interested in him right now.

      I agree, Kim is in no way ok with this, but is running to the tabloids like this so she can control all the media. It’s pathetic.

    • minx says:

      Yes. It’s always about appearances with this family. I’m sure PMK hurried to get the word out that Kim is the best ex who ever lived and she doesn’t have a jealous bone in her body. And Kim wouldn’t be jealous about Kanye’s so-called affections moving on, there was never any heat between those two. But she can’t like the optics of a younger skinny model moving into her narrative.

    • Paige says:

      I think she thinks it makes her look good-like this is her caliber-to have him with a ‘real model’…
      also wasn’t there lists of chatter that she was a beard for BC?
      Maybe just another paying gig for Irina?

    • detnew359 says:

      Let’s be real. This is a contract situation with Kanye and Irina. She has a reputation of being a professional beard.

  5. Justjj says:

    Ehhh to me this sounds like another way to implicitly place all the blame on Kanye and his mental illness for being the only reason why they split-it’s shady towards both Irina and Kanye right?

  6. Jennifer Smith says:

    What…what is she supposed to be conveying in that photo where her PURSE is covering her vaginal area as if a shield that only she can…”penetrate”…?…whilst pouting in what is meant to be sexually alluring…is she aware?

  7. JT says:

    I think she is bothered. A day after the story breaks she has to tell everyone how not bothered she is. Irina is gorgeous and we all know how Kanye gets when he has a new muse. It’ll be all he can talk about. I still think some of his best music was when he was with his last muse Amber Rose. Things might get interesting if they last. It’s also funny because Irina’s discreet life is probably the best thing for him. The circus surrounding the kardashians can’t have helped his problems.

  8. Cora says:

    Why is Irina always tied to guys who are supposed to be closeted…I’m starting to see a pattern here lol

  9. ME says:

    LOL ok is anyone really believing Kim isn’t jealous Kanye is dating someone else, and so soon?
    Someone YOUNGER and possibly more respected than she is? Anyone would be a bit hurt their ex-partner moved on so quick.

  10. Ann says:

    I take this as Kim can trust her not to spill Kardashian tea. She’s probably already signed a Kardashian issued NDA. Kim and PMK are in full controll of the narrative. The whole story is chock full of open hypocrisy, and yet Kim still wins.

    I was wondering about the open birthday wishes on SM by the K Klan. It all makes sense now.

    • Justjj says:

      Oh wow, yup. I bet this is it. There has to be so much Kardashian-West tea.

    • ME says:

      There is no way they could make Irina sign an NDA for dating the ex of a Kardashian. Irina is not on their show nor does she work for them.

    • Heat says:

      To play the Devil’s Advocate, here (and pretend that the words aren’t coming from a Kardashian), it is possible that she’s actually protecting Kanye (and the kids) from “loose lips” in this case.
      I’m sure that being with Kanye for any length of time would provide a partner with a fountain of gossip to share down the road. She may not care about Kanye’s “brand”, so much, but I’m sure she’s developing a brand for her kids, and daddy’s cray-cray could tarnish that…and also potentially hurt them.

  11. Sunnydaze says:

    Hear me out: Kanye needs to look “stable” (enough to have a new partner) and some semblance of “living a low key life”. Enter contracted supermodel. Because the alternative is way too strange: If they’ve been quietly dating for a few months, she was there with all this upheaval, knew how it affected his wife and children, and she thought this was a good idea right on the heels of that? I don’t buy it. I think this is her job, and if that’s the agreement *shrug* but it would also explain why Kim appreciates how “discreet” she is.

    • detnew359 says:

      I agree with everything you said. She has been known as a professional beard for years and this pairing with Kanye, while attempting to bring him some semblance of stability, makes it seem unbelievable. What woman in her right mind, especially with a young kid, would get involved with him at this point of his life? Folks are gullible about celebrities so it may be money well spent on the contract lol!

  12. JennyJazzhands says:

    Kim and kanye have been apart for years. Kim flew to Wyoming every blue moon to take Instagram pics and keep up appearances. But, they’re breakup is not new by any means.
    It’s only new, officially.

  13. Jules says:

    Oh please, Kimmy just got upstaged by a supermodel, we know this is killing her! The very fact that she had to do a press release on how happy she is shows how happy she is not.

  14. why? says:

    This is what the Kardashians always do. Play the victim. Leak negative stories about their exes and any woman whom they perceive as their rival. Blame their kids for their failures. Attach their name to some cause. Mention the kid’s achievements or take photos with them when they need positive press. Leak articles proclaiming victory when their exes break up with the woman they perceived as their rival. Rinse and Repeat.

    If there was no drama coming from Kim’s end or she wasn’t bothered by Kanye being papped with Irina, Kim and Kris wouldn’t keep leaking stories like this or have exposed Kanye’s new relationship the moment they found out about it. Tomorrow Kim and Kris, will leak that Kim is so unbothered by Kanye dating Irina or being papped with another woman before she could debut her new man that Kim and Kris will leak that Kim has been secretly dating Van Jones for a long time because she didn’t want to hurt Kanye’s feelings by being seen in public with a new man.

    What I find fascinating about the Kardashians is Kris’ PR game. How does she manage to exert so much control over the press that Forbes would label 2 of her daughters billionaires after admitting that their first billionaire piece for one daughter was fraud because they were provided with falsified documents and the other daughter is going through a divorce only after her husband’s presidential bid and attempt to interfere in the 2020 election was a complete failure.

    Instead of leaking stories about Kanye and Irina, shouldn’t Kim be somewhere studying, practicing law, or being mentored by her new boyfriend Van Jones?

    not into the story of a man divorcing his wife with young children at home no matter how many nannies they can afford. gross
