Summer love! Kanye West and Irina Shaykin the relationship is still new, but they have an explosion together, the source reveals exclusively in a new issue Us Weekly.
“Kanye and Irina are just in the honeymoon, love and pigeon phase,” the insider explains. “They get to know each other and have fun. It’s not serious yet, but they like each other a lot. “
Earlier this month, Us confirmed that the rapper, 44, and the model, 35, have “seen quietly for a couple of months.” At the time, they had just been filmed together in France, possibly to celebrate West’s June 8 birthday.
Although the romance only recently began, the couple has known each other for years. Shayk appeared in the Yeezy designer’s “Power” video back in 2010, and in 2012, she walked the runway at her show at Paris Fashion Week.
“Kanye was the first to get in touch,” the source continues. “The romance was similar to his [relationship] with Kim [Kardashian] because he saw him in his videography in 2010 and thought he was stunning. He always thought he was special, and he had a place in his mind. “
Kardashian, 40, filed for divorce from “Runaway” singer in February after six years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple shares four children: North, 8, Holy, 5, Chicago, 3 and Psalm, 2.
Shayk, on the other hand, had previously been in a relationship Bradley Cooper from 2015 to 2019. The former couple shares their daughter Lea De Seinen, 4. Before that, the former Sports illustrated swimsuit cover star dated Cristiano Ronaldo from 2010 to 2015.
Another insider said Us that the founder of Skims “knew” the former new escape before the news was released. “Kim doesn’t care because she saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley,” the source said, adding that she “wouldn’t like” if West saw someone “going to talk to the press.”
Cooper will also support the pairing, as long as the Gap partner brings joy to Shayk.
“Bradley would be totally supportive of anyone Irina decides to date – she just wants her to be happy,” the source said Us earlier this month. “Bradley and Irina are not only in good shape as comrades, they’re also close friends and share personal things with each other.”
Despite the consent of the former, the duo has not yet reached another milestone: meeting the children.
“They’re not yet close to introducing each other to their children,” the first insider explains. “It’s too early for that.”
