Even though It's been three months since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West, the rapper seems to be moving on fast. According to some sources, Ye has been spotted with Irina Shayk, with whom he allegedly spent his recent 44 birthday. Not only that; as TMZ is absolutely certain that Irina and Kanye are “100 percent romantically together.”
A series of photos have emerged, in which we can see both Kanye and Irina “smiling and strolling” together around the grounds of a hotel in Provence, France. It's been widely known that they were friends at one point, having spent time together several times. However, this time sources say they look completely “like a couple.”
The rumored new romance is, as people have mentioned it, a consequence of Kanye's splitting from Kim earlier this year. After more than six years of marriage, Kim decided to file for divorce back in February. However, since then, Kanye has been pretty much out of the spotlight. Nonetheless, apparently what he has been doing is keeping his love life behind the scenes. And even if the couple is not what TMZ claims, they certainly seem to be friends with some kind of benefits, at the very least.
Irina's romantic history has been very well documented all over the years. She dated soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo from 2009 until 2015; after the split, she was reportedly seeing Bradley Cooper; the couple was able to maintain a romance from 2015 until 2019. They both have a daughter, named Lea, who was born in 2017.
One day before the photos of Kanye and Irina surfaced, Bradley was spotted in NYC doing his thing as a daddy with Lea. However, it's unclear if either Kim or Bradley knew about Kanye and Irina's summer romance. But it surely doesn't really matter, since both stars seem to be on good terms with their exes.
During an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim went on to explain that she wasn't able to live the lifestyle that Kanye wanted. According to what the reality tv star said, this is what ultimately led to the split. This being only one of the things Kim has come out and said about the separation from her ex husband.
Kardashian also went on to admit that the couple had a “big fight” back in December. In a conversation she had on the show, she stated that she would not put up with the “constant fighting” if it continued. However, it's unclear what the last straw was that led her to finally take the decision and pull the trigger in February. Apparently, the separation agreed with both stars, since they have been able to stay just fine apart from each other.
