Kim Kardashian ‘wants to date,’ she wants to find a guy to share her life with

Kim Kardashian seen in all black leaving dinner at Craig's

Kim Kardashian has been a tiny bit extra this week with the news about Kanye West and Irina Shayk’s relationship coming out. Apparently, Kanye and Irina (IrinYe for now) have been quietly seeing each other for a couple of months and Kim has known about it before now. Kim wishes them well, she’s glad that Irina is discreet, and oh by the way, how can we make this all about Kim? To be fair to Kim (I don’t know why I do this), some of the press around her this week has been about the end of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In fact, it would not surprise me if Kim was kind of mad that Kanye stole her “KUWTK finale” thunder. But then again, whenever Kanye is in the news, Kim is too. Which leads to stories like this:

Kim Kardashian is open to finding love again after her split from Kanye West. Since filing for divorce from West earlier this year, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 40, “wants to date,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She doesn’t see herself being single for the rest of her life.”

“Her priorities are her kids and work, but she would love to find a guy to share her life with,” the source adds.

West has since moved on with Irina Shayk. The model, 35, shares 4-year-old daughter Lea with ex Bradley Cooper. Shayk and Cooper split in 2019 after four years together. On Thursday, a source told PEOPLE that Kardashian has known about West’s new romance with Shayk “for weeks” and that it “doesn’t bother” her.

“Her only concern is their kids. She wants Kanye to be present and spend as much time with them as possible,” the source continued.

Kim “wants to date… She doesn’t see herself being single for the rest of her life…” My guess is still that she has someone waiting in the wings. She wanted Kanye to be the one who publicly “moved on” first, so she wouldn’t look like the bad guy. When do you think Kim will roll out the new guy? Why did my mind immediately go to “Brad Pitt”? I don’t know. Brad’s post-Jolie vibe has been so gross, I kind of think Kim could do better.

That People Mag article isn’t the only update on “how Kim feels about IrinYe.” Page Six also did a piece where sources insisted that Kim has “no issues” with IrinYe and “Kim is fine with it. She just wants him to be happy and healthy. Kim is studying and focused on the kids.” Yeah, she definitely has someone waiting in the wings.

    No way is it Brad Pitt. She is way too big for him (she’s not actually big). Everyone he dates mysteriously drops down to like 100lbs.

    • DuchessL says:

      No way it’s brad pitt, i mean these are not from the same world. I also dont think Kim
      Has anybody presentable or serious. Unfortunately, i dont think it’s going to be easy for kim to date. Who wants to date a kardashian? They’re hard to find. They need to be famewhores first of all, or celebs looking for a comeback.”Serious” A-Celebs would not date kim, she’s too much of a load – unless they fall heads over heels for her, but I find she lacks charm, authenticity and wit.

      • alfandindi says:

        BURN!!! Hahahaha! I agree though, She does lack charm, authenticity and wit! And who the hell wants to hang around with your mother in law and her sisters and associated scumbag hangers on (Travis excluded, but seriously I thought he had better taste), for the rest of their lives?! OMG and YE raising his head shouting off some nonsense every time he stops taking his meds!!

  2. Eurydice says:

    I don’t think there’s a chance it’s Brad Pitt, but that would be a hoot to see. He changes his look depending on the woman – it would be interesting to see what he’d look like with Kim.

  3. robin says:

    Brad would rather fu## Irina too lmao

  4. Amelie says:

    Oh she 100% has someone she is hanging out with now. With Kanye’s mental health issues, she probably knew her going public with the new guy first might set off another episode with Kanye ranting on social media. For all we know, she probably encouraged Kanye to go after Irina so she could feed the info to the tabloids and so he would be preoccupied with his new fling. I don’t remember Kanye really courting the tabloids when he was with Amber Rose and his former fiance Alexis (I think that was her name?). I honestly think Kim leaked to Deuxmoi about Kanye and Irina. The Kardashians are always controlling the narrative. In a month or two, we will see Kim and her new man, whoever he is, strolling around Calabasas somewhere.

    • observer says:

      totally agree with your comment except for one tiny thing: kris does media leaks on her kids (i mean…the kim sex tape too) — and they need to keep an *aligned* narrative. i always wonder how they assign and discuss this sort of thing. because they surely have to discuss it to keep control of said narrative.

      anyway i just wanted to point out it could be kris *or* kim leaking and then got distracted thinking about how they keep the Konspiracy in order. but i think your comment is pretty spot on

  5. ME says:

    I watched the finale last night. She said she wants someone who likes the same TV shows as her and who will work out with her every morning. What did these two ever have in common? The fact he wanted her to abort North says a lot. It’s like they just got married because they wanted a dope wedding but didn’t think about the marriage part of it. They are irresponsible for bringing four children into this when they knew they weren’t happy being married. Those kids deserve better. Thank God for the nannies. Kim will date within the NBA for sure. I’m not sure who it will be, but I don’t see her dating an actor. I mean she’ll put out rumors she’s dating all sorts of A-listers, maybe even through a few female celebs in there too for extra gossip. She’ll keep this all for her storyline on their new HULU show though. Stay tuned lol !

    • LightPurple says:

      Unless she’s going for management, she’s aging out of the NBA fast. The average NBA player is 26 years old. Not many 26 year old athletes want to get involved with a 40 year old mother of 4 with tons of baggage. Not saying some won’t have flings with her but none of them are likely to consider her for any sort of “sharing her life” beyond a month or so.

      • ME says:

        Oh I was talking “flings” not serious relationships. She’ll use them for attention and press. They’ll use her for press and bragging rights (or because they hate Kanye and want to brag about sleeping with her…which is gross to do).

      • minx says:

        Yeah, she is way too old for the NBA. Anyway, she has enough on her plate with four kids and flunking the baby bar again. I read she got a worse score than the first time.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      “It’s like they just got married because they wanted a dope wedding but didn’t think about the marriage part of it.”

      oh, so like a lot of other, regular couples. (seriously, I know so many people who were all about the wedding and making sure it was perfect and didn’t think “oh, this is a lifelong commitment and it’ll be sometimes be work to keep it together”. )

      and I think you’re right…Ye had an obsession with KK for years and I think that it was a case of “be careful what you wish for” in the sense that he had this idea of her and who/what she was, and tried to project that image onto her. and she was probably into that for a while because she finally had some legitimacy, but got tired of him trying to control her and make her into the image he had of her. Plus, the whole “untreated mental illness” issue.

      • ME says:

        He just unfollowed all of the Kardashians/Jenners on twitter. I’m guessing he wasn’t happy with the finale last night. Kim made it seem like she was doing Kanye a favor by divorcing him and setting him free. Also, who is the “source” behind all the stories being leaked? They make every motherf*cker that comes within 20 feet of them sign an NDA. Just proves Kim and her family are the “sources”.

      • observer says:

        i read somewhere that there’s a correlation between high wedding cost and high divorce rate. sounds pretty true to me

    • Jules says:

      “she wants someone who likes the same TV shows as her and who will work out with her every morning”— lmao, this is at the emotional development of a high schooler. You do not base an adult relationship on this, or marry someone because you both like the color black.

  6. Robert says:

    Maybe if Kim would quit dating for awhile and focus on herself and her kids she wouldn’t be the 3 times divorced loser she said she is. You need to like and love yourself before you can love anyone else.

    • lucy2 says:

      All you have to do is look what the women in that family do to their faces and bodies, over and over and over, to know there’s not much self love there.
      I hope the next generation of their family escapes that.

  7. Chaine says:

    “to share her life with” HA more like “to share her life with with the entire world on video when they reboot KUWTK on another channel.”

  8. grabbyhands says:

    It’s not Brad Pitt.

    I would bet money on Van Jones – it feeds her family’s fetishization of black men and he is almost as self important as she is, plus he has the kind of connections she wants to help push this new narrative she’s trying to roll out of being a super serious lawyer person (if she ever manages to pass, I mean). I’m sure she’s already envisioned herself baby talking through her own segment on CNN.

    • Mel says:

      W think alike. I said the same thing further down. No A-lister wants to get sucked into their mess. I don’t think any serious athlete wants to either.

  9. Lala11_7 says:

    Kim et al will be cool with this…UNTIL Kanye starts getting LOTS of Paparazzi attention…


  10. Noki says:

    White A listers seem to stay far away from them.

  11. ThatgirlThere says:

    So thirsty. So sad.

  12. February-Pisces says:

    I feel like Kim doesn’t really need a man, but she would like a man, mostly as an accessory. She seems like the sort of person who is far happier working and making money than actually spending time with a guy. But she also likes to be seen to have it all, so a good looking man next to her would complete her entire image.

    Also did the last ever KUWTK air already?

    • ME says:

      It aired last night. It was kind of a snooze-fest. The real tea comes next week when Andy Cohen does a two-part sit down with the family and asks really good questions. I just wonder if the family will actually answer any of his juicy questions.

    • observer says:

      yep, you just summed up the entire kimye marriage. they were always each others’ accessories/trophies. i think they stayed together as long as they did due to sunk cost fallacy too (with the investment being “fame/image”) … kim was getting ready to depart ship for years it felt like, she just needed her “investment” to turn negative enough. the only difference between her accessorizing kanye and kanye accessorizing her is that the kardashians are more media savvy than kanye (as has been documented about the divorce on this whole site)

  13. Mel says:

    It’s Van Jones

  14. why? says:

    Kim and Kris have been leaking these stories about Kanye and Irina to distract from the fact that Kim failed the baby bar a second time, scoring lower than she did when she first took the test(474 to 463). It worked. Instead of talking about what little effort Kim as been putting into studying, the press is focused on Kanye and Irina and how brave Kim is because she didn’t rush to date anyone.

    Kris and Kim have also been leaking these stories about Kanye and Irina to cover up that they are having problems finding men to date and marry Kim(the billionaire story was probably an attempt to make Kim appear more eligible). I don’t think that Kim has anyone waiting in the wings, but Kris and Kim want Kayne, Irina, and everyone to think that she does. It’s only a matter of time before they start leaking that Kim has been secretly dating Van Jones. The question is will these “secret boyfriend” stories fall before or after Kris and Kim leak stories that Kanye dumped Irina because she was demanding that he put her before Kim and her kids(the same way they leaked stories when Scott put Kourtney and their kids before the teenager).

    Kim is always playing the victim. If Kim was focused on her work and her kids, she wouldn’t be running to the press every day leaking these stories about Kayne and Irina followed by stories depicting herself as the victim. It seems like Kim and Kris are leaking these daily stories about Kanye and Irina just so that they can leak 3-5 articles about Kim, confirming that Kim has lost her appeal. Instead of looking for men that she and her family can exploit and using her kids as props for her staged photo-ops who she will then blame for her failures(failing the baby bar and Covid), Kim needs to disappear from the public and work on her insecurities. People would have believed that she was serious about getting her law degree had she actually spent time studying instead of setting up staged photo-ops pretending to study and latching on to Van Jones because she and Kris overestimated how much influence he would have in getting Kim her law degree.

    • Jules says:

      this ^^. K and K manipulate everything for the press, it’s funny and also very depressing when I see people fall for whatever they are trying to sell.

  15. Amando says:

    She really needs to be single for awhile. She is the only “stable” parent those 4 kids have. Didn’t she just cry about failing the bar for a 2nd time? Be a mom, study hard, and get some therapy.
