Are Jason Sudeikis & Irina Shayk happening, or are they ‘just friends’?

Apple TV+ Ted Lasso Season 2 Premiere

Gossip is back, obviously, as many celebrities have made it clear that they hated how little attention they got during the pandemic. So many celebrities have been generous enough to give us new loves, new relationships, new dramas. Seeing two different gossip storylines come together is, for me, like nerds watching a Marvel crossover event. One one side, we’ve had the stuff about how Irina Shayk is definitely, 100% dating Kanye West. On the other side, we’ve had the ongoing drama between Jason Sudeikis, Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles. Now combine everything! Apparently, Irina Shayk and Jason Sudeikis were partying together and now people are like “wait, are they happening?”

Jason Sudeikis and Irina Shayk are hanging out… but just as friends! A source tells ET that Sudeikis was recently spotted at the newly reopened midtown hotspot Hunt & Fish Club to celebrate the birthdays of his Ted Lasso cast members, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein.

“Irina Shayk and new Vogue editor Edward Enninful were also in attendance, and were there to meet with Jason in connection with his recent open support of British soccer players,” a source tells ET. “The group of about 12 stayed past midnight and feasted on, among other things, seafood towers and celebratory dessert platters. Irina and Jason were invited through a mutual friend of their agent, Ali Kavoussi, owner of The Lions Model agency,” adds the source, “because of the two birthdays.”

The outing comes following Sudeikis’ split from Olivia Wilde, and Shayk’s brief romance with Kanye West. A source told ET earlier this month that Shayk and West were “never serious.”

“The two of them have always just been having fun together,” the source said at the time. “They’re both doing their own thing and down to have a good time without any strings attached.”

Um, the “source” sounds a little bit frantic trying to explain how Jason and Irina were at the same event. The source’s panic is what makes me think that this was something notable and not just a group of friends and acquaintances hanging out. And in case anyone is keeping track, Irina’s people went to People Magazine to insist that she is actually still casually dating Kanye. That being said, Page Six’s source claims that Jason is no longer dating Keeley Hazell. Jason and Keeley had been seen out and about in New York for a couple of weeks, but the source insists that Jason is single now. Jason and Irina would make a hell of a lot of sense together, honestly. That’s probably why it’s not happening.

    Does she know he’s straight? Hope she’s getting some of that marathoner sex.

      News flash from this century: men can have sexual interactions with men, be with women and both relationships can be legit. The pitchfork police to out men who might be gay & women who might be hiding them is a tad passe…and absolutely homophobic.

      • LipServicer says:

        News flash from 2021 in the entertainment industry: this isn’t your world, it’s money’s world. You think it’s hard in 1st world countries being gay? You have it cushy compared to many other parts of the world, those parts that STILL 👏 CATERED 👏 TO 👏 by the entertainment industry. what you see from the industry is lip service. Anything outside hetero is considered a risk to the bottom line. Yes darling, that’s right – anything outside hetero is a liability to international dollars, your 1st world/western world & it’s views on LGBTQ isn’t where riskfree revenue is. You talk like it’s homophobic? THE INDUSTRY IS HOMOPHOBIC. You think this is new!? Have you ever heard of Rock Hudson? In this industry, it’s STILL homophobic behind the scenes bc MONEY. Go ahead & pretend it’s a social issue – it’s not. It’s about not rocking the money making boat & for that yes, professional beards exist. You have zero idea what goes on behind the scenes and IT SHOWS. You wanna make a difference? Start calling out the industry’s lip service. Irina is a longtime professional for contract beardings & that’s that. Same with Minka Kelly & Olivia Munn. You can cry homophobia all you want but best you take it up with the actual homophobes – those in suits telling ppl to stay in the closet for fear it jeopardizes the bottomline.

        As a gay woman who works bts at an agency, I’m so over these comments. Wake up. Your world isn’t the same as the rest of the 🌍 international revenue reflects this

      • Lori says:

        To my knowledge Irinka is a professional girlfriend. Now the connection between Jason and Irinka is likely Cooper because they were in those horrible bosses movies together. So could be just friends running into one another. But also Jason just got dumped for a much younger man by a woman who has shown in the past that she is more than willing to talk sh!t about an ex. She said her vagina died in her last marriage. So if Jason has contracted a hot girlfriend to help his image post breakup it doesnt mean bearding. And if Irinka wants to go on a few dates with a man that may actually want to have sex with her……i say get it girl. Ok

      • Otaku fairy says:

        The point mc2 is making is still important though. Bisexual men exist. People do get a little too comfortable and serious assuming which parts of a stranger’s sexuality are real and which parts they’re faking. Minus her use of one word, Cardi B also was definitely not wrong in the points she made the other day about bisexuality and the problem with the way ‘queerbaiting’ is being used as well.

      • Jessie says:

        @Lori, I would just say that she made those comments in a private setting for a series of events called “The Vagina Monologues” where women were supposed to be able to speak freely about sex, love, and relationships in a fun, light-hearted way. She didn’t give a statement to a magazine to trash talk him as these conversations weren’t supposed to be recorded. But a journalist was there, recognized her, recorded her segment, and published it. Her and her ex are still close friends; he said as much in an interview a few years ago, he follows her on instagram, likes her posts, and they still hang out with folks from the same friend group. I think if he can get past it, the general public certainly should be able to.

    In those pictures I would have said the woman is AOC.


    “Irina Shayk and new Vogue editor Edward Enninful were also in attendance, and were there to meet with Jason in connection with his recent open support of British soccer players,”

    I know he wore that shirt but has he done other things? I don’t pay much attention to him so may have missed some stuff but otherwise that just sounds weird and more like typical Cambridge embigenning.

    • Pilar says:

      Not sure what he’s done but unless he has problematic history I don’t really see the how that makes him comparable to Cambridge’s and BRF.

  3. Pilar says:

    IS rushing to people to confirm she is “casually dating” Kanye is not a good look…

    As for sudekis don’t know much about him but his recent interview was very good. He did not come off a angry or jilted ex at all but did confirm that he spilt with in the autumn ( literately a couple of months before the whole Harry styles affair) …

  4. Kerfuffles says:

    Based on how he is looking at her in that photo and her face when he is hugging her, I don’t think it’s happening yet but it’s definitely going to happen. Which will be nice and gossipy so I am here for it.

  5. lunchcoma says:

    I’d be shocked if this were happening. Sudeikis doesn’t have a history of contract girlfriends, and I don’t think Shayk has a history of anything but that.

  6. MC2 says:

    I am rooting on Ted Lasso to score big! After his break up & having to see his ex with Harry Styles on a yacht, I hope he has a summer full of fun, sex & love.

  7. Cava24 says:

    The source may be confused on more than one front – Edward Enninful is not the “new” editor of British Vogue, he has been editor since 2017, his first issue as editor was November of 2017.

    Also, it makes no sense that Jason was an add on to a birthday party for his cast mates-

    Irina and Jason were invited through a mutual friend of their agent, Ali Kavoussi, owner of The Lions Model agency,” adds the source, “because of the two birthdays.” It sounds like a Ted Lasso cast dinner and Enninful was added in and Irina went as his plus one or something.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      It was my understanding it was actually Enninful’s party, and there were 12 people there as guests (including Lasso cast members, Irina and her manager, etc.)

    • Normades says:

      I think the writer said Jason when he meant Enninful.

      Also I think the source is Irina. In these stories about her they go into great detail, who invited her, what they ate etc…. I know some people think she’s “low key” but I don’t get that vibe at all.

  8. Mina_Esq says:

    I want this, not just because they are both decent people but also because I don’t want her with messy Kanye.
