Kanye West and Irina Shayk are dating, multiple sources confirm to Page Six.
The pair, who are in France on vacation for West’s 44th birthday, have only been an item for a short period of time, as he is going through a divorce from Kim Kardashian.
“Kanye and Irina are seeing each other. It’s casual at the moment, but they are into each other,” one insider shared. “It’s been going on for a few weeks now.”
The new couple have known each other for years. Shayk, 35, appeared in the rapper’s 2010 music video for “Power” and walked in his Paris Fashion Week show two years later. West, for his part, name-dropped the model in his song “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” which he released for free online in 2010.
Reps for West and Shayk didn’t return Page Six’s requests for comment.
Pictures obtained by the Daily Mail showed the “Jesus Walks” rapper and the Russian model walking the property of a Provence hotel on Tuesday with a group of people — and also by themselves.
The latest victim of the so-called Kardashian curse, West couldn’t contain his smile as he and Shayk explored the property located in the South of France.
It’s the “Flashing Lights” performer’s first romance since Kardashian filed paperwork in February to end their seven-year marriage. The estranged couple share four children: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
Shayk, meanwhile, shares daughter Lea, 4, with ex Bradley Cooper. She previously had a high-profile romance with soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
