Irina Shayk is mad that people think she’s not still dating Kanye West…?

Irina Shayk is all legs while out with daughter Lea in New York City

About five weeks ago, Irina Shayk was in the South of France with Kanye West. It was their big, splashy couple debut, but there were some stories claiming that IrinYe had been happening quietly for a few months beforehand. Which makes me believe Kanye’s team wanted it out there, and they wanted Irina to play along and be his stunt girlfriend. It doesn’t even appear as if Kanye and Irina even spent any time together after their European jaunt, and when Kanye invited Irina to go to Paris Fashion Week with him, she was like “nope” and “let’s just be friends,” according to Page Six. That outlet said last week that Irina is 100% cooling down the relationship or whatever it was.

Us Weekly said much the same as Page Six, with a source telling them: “Kanye and Irina aren’t speaking quite as much anymore. She wants to remain friends and keep communication open, but she’s pulling back a bit….Irina does like Kanye, but isn’t ready for so many public appearances together all over the [world] for the coming months.” It definitely felt like Irina’s people were putting it out there last week that IrinYe is over. Except: long live IrinYe! TMZ says that they’re still happening?

Kanye West and Irina Shayk are very much in a relationship despite reports to the contrary, and rumors she turned down an overseas trip with him are nonsense … TMZ has learned. Sources close to the couple tell us they’re still dating, just as they have been for months, and recently spent the Fourth of July weekend together in San Francisco — and not in hiding either. We’re told the couple dined out together at the fancy restaurant, Mourad.

Afterward, Kanye took off to Paris for the Balenciaga show during Fashion Week. Page Six reported he wanted Irina to go with him but she declined — however, our sources say that’s not true. We’re told Ye hadn’t invited her because it was a quick business trip, he flew in and out of Paris the same day.

The Irina-free trip sparked speculation their relationship was “cooling off” — but we’re told things are as hot as ever.

Weirdly, People Magazine followed up on TMZ’s reporting, with sources in her camp telling People that not only is Irina still dating Kanye but she’s “so upset at the lies about her and Kanye,” and perhaps planning to take legal action to “set the record straight” that they are “very much still dating.”

So… what was Page Six doing last week? It felt kind of inevitable that there had been a cooling off period, but now Irina is coming out swinging that all is well? I don’t know what to tell you. None of this makes any sense to me, gossip-wise. Whatever.

    Legal action to prove they’re still dating? A less expensive way is to actually date and let people see you doing it.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Right! A papped dinner date would be less expensive than legal action. To go legal usually means some harm or damage is being caused. I’m not coming up with any valid reason how NOT dating Kanye would be harmful or damaging to Irina.

      • clomo says:

        That’s what I thought, how odd to get irked about something so silly and harmless?

      • RoyalBlue says:

        what if she were under a one year contract with kanye to act like his girlfriend. any rumors or speculation to cast doubt the relationship exists must be swiftly denied by discreet sources.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @RoyalBlue, I’m not going to buy into the contract idea at this point. Irina could probaly find someone a lot better in a long term situation if that was/is the case. She is beautiful. Kanye, regardless of his $$, is not a good look for Irina, until he gets himself together.imo

    • Nicki says:

      Lol yes!!!

  2. Lena says:

    I guess Page Six and US Weekly ran a story from some ‘source’ and didn’t ask Irina or Kanye’s people for comment. I always wonder who these sources are. I think only people magazine uses just their public relations firms, others take whoever wants to send in gossip. I guess they should call the paps on themselves because people don’t believe anything until they see it. I’ve heard gossip that people have broken up (Trevor Noah and Minka Kelly for one) when they haven’t, if they aren’t papped.

    • observer says:

      and then there’s when the ‘source’ is the article writer who threw a bunch of ideas back and forth with an intern and was like “let’s go with that, it’ll sell”

  3. Jayna says:

    So she’s dating a very vocal Trump supporter? It doesn’t say much about her, then.

    • NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

      I don’t know. Purely statistically speaking, we know Trump got a lot of support from America’s Eastern European descended population (Russia, Poland, Romania, Serbia). Irina is a Russia immigrant so it may not be out of the realm of possibility she was in fact a Trump supporter. For all we know, Bradley Cooper is also is a Trump supporter (I highly doubt it). You never know how someone voted and that fool made it to 70 million votes somehow.

  4. Hyperbolme says:

    Yeyk lives on!

  5. NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

    I just don’t see this being true. Are we sure this isn’t Kanye going to a new level of Trump creepy?

  6. Mcmmom says:

    Am I the only one who sees Kanye as completely asexual and therefore finds all of this a PR stunt? He doesn’t strike me as passionate about anything other than his work and whatever belief system he’s adhering to at the time.

    • NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

      💯 I think you’re spot on.

    • BeardsRus says:

      Irina is a high level professional beard. Cheaper downrent examples are Olivia Munn, Suki Waterhouse, Minka Kelly.

      Kanye wanted her for free but Irina doesn’t do charity, she does $$$$$$$$$

      This is all so Cooper can give into her demands to have another kid with Irina. Being with Kanye is a ‘I’ll do this more if you don’t do that’ – it’ll probably work too. Cooper reneges on ending their multiyear contract just yet (and another baby enters the picture) but no kanye

      • MC2 says:

        THIS is why she is threatening legal action. It’s not to prove she’s dating him or not, it’s because of these disgusting homophobic “beard” stories.

      • Demessi says:

        Thats how I felt about her relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo. A beard situation

      • Krystina says:

        @BeardsRus where’s the proof she’s a professional beard? Those are some wild claims you’re putting out there

      • Case says:

        @MC2 it’s not homophobic to discuss bearding. It’s an unfortunate reality in the entertainment industry that some stars feel they must pretend to be something they’re not.

    • observer says:

      Kanye strikes me as fairly ace but not completely, remember sexuality is a spectrum. He has a fixation with women but is clearly not gay as far as my gaydar can tell.

      Either way he views women as objects/accessories/aesthetic signs of his genius (hence his obsession with models and playing dressup on his gfs/wives) and i think that is a mostly non-sexual asexual obsession.

      But did yall forget the time he got extremely upset about Amber Rose’s “finger in the booty” comments? I think if Kanye was 100% ace….why get upset? Then again he’s probably not bright enough to realize when he’s acting like the lady doth protest too much.

    • Case says:

      This is absolutely it. Nailed it. Bearding has always been a staple in Hollywood (Old Hollywood stars like Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, etc. the list goes on and on, were all not-straight and successfully kept it hidden). Even though ideas around sexuality are more open now, I feel like it’s really silly to not think it’s still happening today with popular stars with a reputation to uphold.

  7. Kebbie says:

    Does anybody honestly believe that these two are genuinely dating or into each other in any way? What is the point of this PR nonsense?

    • NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

      Kanye keeps Kim away and let’s her know he’s got someone willing to be discreet. Irina books a few extra modeling jobs.

  8. Piratewench says:

    She has small children? Why would she get involved with someone as totally unstable and untreated as Kanye?
    Listen, Kanye deserves love just as anyone does. But at the same time he refuses treatment and is totally public with his unstable behavior. Why would you get involved with such an unstable man when you have children to think of? Is the fame really worth bringing that into your kids lives?
    I had the same question for Kim as she continued to have kids with a man in that state of mind and left untreated. Look how out of control he got at the end, with Kim. I would run the other way, fame and money or not!

  9. MaryContrary says:

    So they’re trying to make us think that their faux romance is not a PR stunt? Nope. Still not buying it.

  10. Bettyrose says:

    LOL @‘spent 4th of July in SF hiding in a fog bank. That’s no way to get papped.

  11. MsIam says:

    It almost sounds like she under contract or something…….

  12. ce says:

    I don’t think that dating Kanye has the same appeal to the public as it did pre-Kim. And I don’t think it’s the Kardashian effect either, dude is a real *sshole and the world knows it now. She got caught hooking up with him, but it isn’t a relationship. Case closed?

  13. Lori says:

    She goes from Ronaldo to Cooper to Kanye, and is now mad we see it as a bears contract? Woman show your work.

    • Jaded says:

      LOL, I love that description “bears contract”!

      • Lori says:

        Auto correct got me, but its still good.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @Jaded, “bears contract” is funny…as a Wisconsin native it’s a bit more funny with the football/QB situation. We have our own problems with Rodgers..the one thing Wisconsin people agreed on was the catering to Cutler as a good QB and the respect given to Urlacher as a player. GB fans loved Urlacher as a player. Cutler no so much. I see ‘bears contract’ in football terms.

  14. Midge says:

    Yeah, she doesn’t want to be seen in breach of contract.

  15. L4Frimaire says:

    I just have to say that 4th of July is always miserable and foggy in San Francisco. It’s a place you leave for that holiday. Kanye just seems exhausting and after the visibility of his marriage and his in-laws, why would anyone want that exposure with him?

    • faithmobile says:

      Miserable and foggy? To each their own, July is lovely in SF, sure it gets foggy in the evenings, it’s wonderful after all that summer sun. But SF is not somewhere to get papped it’s were I would go to keep a relationship on the DL if I were a celebrity.

  16. Jaded says:

    She’s become irrelevant since breaking up with Cooper. She’s thirstier than a toddler with a box of saltines and will milk this for all it’s worth.

  17. Mel says:

    What kind of person wants to sue to prove they’re still dating someone? They deserve each other, oh so thirsty…

  18. Heat says:

    I’m kind of curious to know what Bradley Cooper thinks about all this. I know that he’s a major tool, but he does seem to be a great father, by all accounts.
    I would have some serious concerns about my child being around a person who refuses to accept treatment for serious mental illness. I mean, even when he has his OWN kids, he isn’t alone with them.

  19. TheRickestRick says:

    Has Kanye been vaccinated? I get the feeling he would be anti-vax. Just another in the massive pile of reasons for avoiding this fella
