Kanye West and Irina Shayk Are 'Very Much Still Dating' — and Model Is 'Upset' at Split Rumors: Source

PEOPLE.com 16 July, 2021 - 12:45pm

Weeks after the couple made a romantic trip to France and days after Page Six reported that the two were breaking up, a source tells PEOPLE that West, 44, and Shayk, 35, are still together.

"Irina is so upset at the lies about her and Kanye," the source tells PEOPLE, adding that the model was moved to take legal action to set the record straight.

Of the rumors that "they're cooling off and she turned down his invitation to Paris," the source explains: "That's just not true. Kanye went to Paris for the Balenciaga show to support Demna [Gvasalia]. He was in and out, only there for 3 hours."

"They are very much still dating, they were just together for the 4th of July weekend in San Francisco where he's working right now," the insider adds.

Last month, a source told PEOPLE that the two would "date long-distance" after spending time together in France.

"Kanye is doing well. He had a great trip to France with Irina. They will date long distance," the source said then. "Kanye will continue to be L.A.-based. He has no plans to move to NYC."

"He is very focused on business in LA too. He likes spending time with Irina though and plans to see her soon again," the source added.

West and Shayk were spotted together celebrating his 44th birthday at Villa La Coste in France in early June with a separate source saying he had "started pursuing her a few weeks ago" and that they had "hung out" in New York City, where she lives, before then.

"She seems smitten. He invited her to France and she happily accepted," the second source said at the time. "They are not officially dating, but there is an interest from both sides." The then-couple had spent three days in Europe before flying to the United States.

The romance between Shayk and West comes nearly five months after West's ex-wife Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from the rapper. (Kardashian aware of the brief romance and it didn't "bother Kim that Kanye is dating," according to a source.)

Kardashian and West share daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 3, and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 2. Meanwhile, Shayk shares daughter Lea De Seine, 3½, with ex Bradley Cooper.

Kanye West has a blast with friends as Irina Shayk romance comes to halt

Geo News 16 July, 2021 - 05:07am

The father of four was seen attending a match together with his friends appearing to be “in a really happy mood”. 

According to sources, he appeared to be “relaxed and comfortable” while attending the game with his pals and was “smiling and having a good time” as the night went on.

“He gave a pretty powerful speech,” the source said, comparing the moment when West stood up and praised basketball player Chris Paul to one of his Sunday Service sermons.

About his relationship with Shayk, the insider revealed, “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.”

Kanye West Spotted With Friends After Irina Shayk Romance Cools Off

Us Weekly 15 July, 2021 - 06:34pm

The 44-year-old Grammy winner met up with a group of buddies at International Smoke in San Francisco on Wednesday, July 14, to watch the Phoenix Suns play the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals. West appeared to be “relaxed and comfortable” while catching up with friends, and according to the onlooker, was “smiling and having a good time” as the night went on.

At one point, the Yeezy designer stood up and declared his appreciation for basketball player Chris Paul, a point guard on the Suns, who’s still giving his all in the league after 15 years. “He gave a pretty powerful speech,” the source says, comparing the moment to one of West’s Sunday Service sermons.

Shortly before his California outing, a source exclusively told Us that the “Stronger” artist and Shayk, 35, were starting to cool things off after sparking a romance earlier this year.

“Kanye and Irina aren’t speaking quite as much anymore,” the insider noted on Wednesday. “She wants to remain friends and keep communication open, but she’s pulling back a bit.”

The twosome were friends for several years before sparking speculation that they’d become something more following West’s split from Kim Kardashian. In February, the Skims founder, 40, filed for divorce after nearly seven years of marriage. Four months later, Us confirmed that the “Gold Digger” rapper and the Russia native had been “quietly seeing each other” for a while.

“[Kim is] genuinely happy for him and wants him to move on,” an insider revealed at the time. “She thinks Irina is a great fit for him.”

West and Kardashian’s marriage woes had been making headlines long before news broke of their separation. The estranged duo — who share North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2 — are seeking joint legal and physical custody of their little ones. While the “Heartless” artist was apparently ready to move on, the reality star is a little more hesitant.

“She’s not focused on dating at the moment but actually worries that guys will not want to date her because of how public her relationship was with Kanye,” an insider previously revealed in June. “She also knows how hard it is to build trust with someone so she thinks it’s going to take time before letting someone into her private life. It was easy with Kanye because they were friends before so they had years’ worth of trust.”

After initially not wanting to discuss her relationship during the final season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which ended in June, the aspiring lawyer revealed what went wrong while speaking to her mom, Kris Jenner.

“After turning 40 this year, I realized like, ‘No, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state,'” she explained in one of the last episodes. “To me, I thought, ‘Oh, my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best,’ but then that is sad to me and that’s not what I want. I want someone that we have the same shows in common. I want someone who wants to work out with me.”

The makeup mogul admitted she felt “like a f–king loser” for not being able to make it work, but also wanted to cherish little moments in her life.

“I have all the big things,” she continued. “I have the extravagant everything you can possibly imagine and no one will ever do it like that — I know that, and I’m grateful for those experiences — but I think I’m ready for the smaller experiences that I think will mean a lot.”

DeuxMoi was first to report West’s San Francisco outing.

Irina Shayk Is Reportedly ‘Pulling Back’ From Kanye West

Glamour 15 July, 2021 - 11:52am

While TMZ reported in June that West and Shayk were together in France on the rapper’s birthday, one source speaking to Us Weekly in July suggests Shayk is cooling things off. “Kanye and Irina aren’t speaking quite as much anymore,” a source tells the outlet. “She wants to remain friends and keep communication open, but she’s pulling back a bit.”

The insider adds, “Irina does like Kanye, but isn’t ready for so many public appearances together all over the [world] for the coming months.”

The publication reported last month that West and Shayk had “been quietly seeing each other” for a couple of months. They were spotted together in Europe, and a second source said at the time that “Irina and Kanye have been spending time together and getting to know one another. He’s always thought she was beautiful and they’re both looking forward to seeing where this goes.”

However, other sources suggested that West and Shayk had only been only getting to know each other for a few weeks before those France photos went viral. “Kanye and Irina connected recently when they were both in New York City,” a source told E! in June. “They met up one night and had chemistry and hit it off. It’s very casual and they have only been in touch for about a month. Kanye has expressed he doesn’t want anything serious but likes Irina’s vibe.”

“They have been seeing each other for several weeks,” a separate source said. “Kanye has been flying in and out of New York to be with her.”

Following those first dating rumors, it seemed both Kanye West’s and Irina Shayk’s exes, Kim Kardashian and Bradley Cooper, were supportive of the budding relationship. “Bradley would be fully supportive of whoever Irina chooses to date—he just wants her to be happy,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “Bradley and Irina are not just on good terms as coparents; they’re also close as friends and share personal things with each other.”

“Kim doesn’t mind because she saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley,” another source with Us Weekly said.
