Kanye West is ‘not thinking about more kids right now,’ he’s going slow with Irina

Kanye West and his family attend the Greater Allen AME Cathedral of New York for his Sunday service

Does anyone else legitimately wonder how Kanye West is doing? He had some really bad public breakdowns over the years, and his manic episode last year seemed to go on and on. I know people “blame” Kim Kardashian and the Kardashian-Jenners for all of that, but in recent years, the biggest exploiters of Kanye’s mental health issues were Jared Kushner and the Republican Party. I wonder if Jared and Kanye are still talking. I sincerely hope not. I also think Kim has been really worried that the divorce will trigger an episode with Kanye, which is why she’s moved slowly on the divorce and all that. But his relationship with Irina Shayk has to change things across the board, right? I wonder. For now, it’s out with the old and in with the new. Kanye has unfollowed Kim and her entire family from his Twitter. And he’s apparently “taking things slow” with Irina.

Kanye West has promised he’s “taking things slow” with Irina Shayk and “not looking to have more kids” but credits her for putting the “spring back in his step.” Earlier this week, the Stronger rapper was pictured beaming with the 35-year-old model after whisking her away for a “romantic getaway” in Provence, south of France, for his 44th birthday.

A source told The Sun: “Kanye is looking more like his old self again. The big smile is back and he’s got the spring back in his step again. He’s taking things slow with Irina and they are just enjoying each other’s company. They have a lot in common, both are ‘from the streets’ in terms of their interests and know a lot of the same people. Kanye’s not thinking about more kids right now. He has his hands full with his four children who are his entire world. He’s just getting back out there again.”

Meanwhile the Sun revealed yesterday Kim had been left feeling “blindsided and hurt” after Kanye took Irina to their “special place” in France, The Sun can reveal. It confirms The Sun’s story from last month that Kanye had moved on with Irina – but 40-year-old Kim has been left shocked and hurt by the hook-up, especially as it took place at her and her ex’s “special place”.

For what it’s worth, I don’t think Kim was blindsided at all. I think she’s known about it for weeks or months. Maybe she read about it on Deuxmoi or maybe she’s just been keeping tabs on Kanye through his team. As for Kanye not wanting any more kids at the moment… I wonder about that too. When we last heard from Kanye, he was in some kind of quasi-religious persona where he thought women were unclean and only good for birthing babies or something. Whew, I hope Irina understands how messy this could get in a hurry. Also: “from the streets” sounds like it came from a priggish British person who thinks “woke” is the ultimate pejorative.

    Great, now he can get Irina to rock all beige all the time!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Don’t forget the laytex too, or what ever that material is that KKKim would wear😳. And his clothes and shoes line is crap!

  2. Cecilia says:

    Irina is from the streets?

    • JT says:

      She did grow up poor from what I understand. Maybe that’s what the writer means? It is an odd thing to say though.

      • Pilar says:

        Well, Kanye is not ” from the streets”. He is middle class from a highly educated family.

      • JT says:

        @Pilar Well we know all black people are from the streets, isn’t that what’s on TV nowadays? It’s absurd. Are there now new stereotypes? /s

    • Ella says:

      It actually says they’re “‘from the streets’ in terms of their interests” which I guess means they both like hip hop music?

  3. Normades says:

    Of course they’re not having kids together. This is a total PR set up.

  4. Erica says:

    I should hope they aren’t thinking about having kids, they’ve been “together” for a few weeks LOL

  5. HandforthParish says:

    I don’t get the relationship. Irina seems no-nonsense and pragmatic.
    I can’t see her willing to pamper to his giant Jesus ego, even for PR.

    She doesn’t need him.

    • MF1 says:

      Agree. She seems like the no bullshit type. That’s why I think there’s some credibility to the idea that this is a PR setup.

      • ME says:

        I’m shocked there aren’t stories about the Kardashians paying Irina to date Kanye and “get him off their hands” lol. I mean, Kanye has never had an issue getting women. He was at his worst while in the Kardashian Klan. Let’s see how his next twitter rant goes…though he’s been awfully quiet online for a very long time now.

    • Heat says:

      She certainly doesn’t need him. But her track record with me suggests that she has a terrible “picker”. She may be the type to want to try to fix a man, only to learn later that she can’t.

  6. D says:

    “From the streets” made me actually laugh out loud.

    • Maxine duCamp says:

      Agreed. Also does anyone — or at least anyone under the age of 75 — say “ spring in his step.”

      • SarahCS says:

        At least they didn’t say anything about ‘lead in his pencil’ if we’re going with super outdated

      • Frida_K says:

        I caught that too.

        I kind of wondered if it was code for “light in the loafers,” which is an archaic way to say someone is gay. In other words, now that he’s got a beard all set up, he’s back to actively having a good time with his preferred flavor of partner.

        Normally, I wouldn’t jump to that conclusion but “spring in his step” is such an odd term in this context and the only way it would make sense is if the person using it is (A) over the age of 75 or (B) speaking in a snarky code.

        Who knows, but that’s what occurred to me when I read that it.


  7. Leeloo says:

    How about just being alone for a second, Kanye?!

    • Pilar says:

      Would normally agree but lets be real he doesn’t really spend that much time with his partners. He lived in a different state or different country from his wife the majority of their relationship. So he seems to be alone plenty. Not that I necessarily even buy this thing with Irina.

  8. smegmoria says:

    He seems like the kind of guy that says he has to babysit his kids.

    • MF1 says:

      Yeah, I LOL’ed at the “He has his hands full with his four children who are his entire world.” Cause we all know he let’s Kim do the parenting while effs off to Montana.

      • ME says:

        You really think Kim is “left with the kids”? Those kids have like 3 nannies each. She is never alone with her kids. Those poor kids have probably never even had a meal made by their own mother or father. In fact, I bet those kids spend more time around the nannies, chefs, and maids than with their own parents.

      • Bess says:

        @ME, those kids are better of spending more time around their nannies,

  9. AmyB says:

    I am not trying to be critical at all here, but the last thing Kayne needs is more children!! Until he can get his mental health issues handled properly (and who knows if that will ever happen?), more children in this dynamic IS NOT the answer! He probably doesn’t need another relationship either, but no one in Hollywood seems to have the autonomy to stay alone for very long LOL! God forbid you sit alone for your own thoughts for seconds right???

    • Starkille says:

      Especially considering he already has four? Five? (I don’t know the exact total and can’t be arsed to look it up) that he appears to have little contact with.

  10. Size Does Matter says:

    New relationship = dopamine flood. But it always always always wears off.

    My sister is bipolar with psychosis and was initially diagnosed 25 years ago. Sometimes she would stay on her meds for years and be pretty okay. But eventually she would stop taking them and wind up back in the ditch. As time went on those okay periods got shorter, and the meds seemed less and less effective.

    Maybe Kanye will have better success with effectiveness of meds, but he won’t stay on them either. It’s part of the illness.

    • Lemon says:

      I’m in a similar situation with my brother. The medications help but are less effective over time. I’m sorry for your sister and for YOU for being a family member, it’s hard.

    • AmyB says:

      Yup!… this is exactly it. Even for people that do not have Bipolar, a new relationship is a high. But for someone who does not take proper medication for his Bipolar disorder, and has been struggling, as I am sure Kayne has, this is the perfect solution. Yes…until it wears off, as it always does.

      It is beyond sad and frustrating to have a loved one refuse the treatment they need for mental illness. I get it; I have a brother like this. It’s so fucking maddening to feel so powerless. And all they have to do is comply with the medical advice of their doctors, yet they refuse….

      Regardless of this relationship with Irina, I think it is better for Kayne to be out of the Kim Kardashian/Kris Jenner grasp. Don’t think that was a healthy dynamic. Look at every single man who gets entangled in their web?! LMAO Joe Rogan did a comedy bit on it a couple years ago. He wasn’t WRONG!!

  11. detritus says:

    So he’s in the high phase and full of optimism. This phase doesn’t last forever. The new relationship energy will definitely help, but I do not see this ending well.

    Also, I should sure hope they aren’t talking about kids. He already has quite a few he barely seems to parent.

  12. Jules says:

    How could any woman date him after the horrendous public things he said about almost aborting north? These celebs live in another world, it’s so gross.

  13. Tianafora says:

    I have a soft spot for Kanye but he seems very unpredictable and unstable at times. I doubt this is more than a PR stunt.

  14. ME says:

    I think Kanye wanted the divorce just as much as Kim did. Let’s not act like he was pleading with her “to stay” lol. Also, he stopped following all of the KarJenners on twitter. He’s done with them. I think he’ll be much better off now. Hopefully he keeps a good relationship with his kids, that’s all that matters. Kim is treading “lightly” because she’s afraid Kanye will tell all the family secrets. You know he knows some real sh*t ! Otherwise, this family would have tried to publicly destroy Kanye just like they try to do to every other ex they’ve had.

  15. why? says:

    The Sun’s sources are definitely Kris and Kim. It is obvious that this story is coming from Kris and Kim because the topic centers on Kayne and Irina having kids(Kim kept adding kids to her family even though Kayne’s mental illness kept getting worse) and depicting Kim as the victim. Woe is Kim, how dare Kayne take Irina to “their” special place. Kim is shocked that Kayne moved on because it contradicts Kris’ narrative that Kanye is obsessed with Kim. Kim is moving slow with the divorce because they are having trouble finding men for Kim and they realized that they have no appeal without Kayne.

    People blame the Kardashians because they exploited Kanye’s mental illness, Kim wasn’t complaining about Kanye’s mental illness or his support of Trump when she went to the White House and hung out with Jared Kushner(claiming that they talked about prison reform) and took photos with Trump. After her visit to the White House, Kim even refused to condemn Trump. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kim and Kris were the ones who encouraged Kayne to run for president and even gave Jared and the republicans the idea to use Kayne. Kim and Kris wanted access to the White House by any means necessary and they used Kayne’s “friendship” with Trump to do that.

    Kayne unfollowed them because he probably didn’t want them to exploit his birthday like do anyone who comes in contact with them.

  16. Serena says:

    Irina better run if she has some sense.

  17. Elo says:

    From the streets? Lol
    Kanye isn’t from the streets. His mother was a professor.
