Things have reportedly remained “amicable” between the former couple, and Kanye is moving right along with a new relationship.
The Blast previously told you about Kanye and supermodel Irina Shayk’s romantic getaway to France for Ye’s 44th birthday.
The two were spotted hand-in-hand walking the green pastures of France; however, according to reports the couple might’ve struck up something more serious prior to this trip!
According to reports, Kanye and Irina’s dating situation was brewing long before the vacation to France.
They were reportedly in New York City together for the DMX memorial service at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as well. That was in late April. Sources close to the situation also say that the two have been seeing each other as far back as March.
The past few months have gone swimmingly for the rumored new couple, and Kanye is really liking what he’s seeing from Irina.
A source exclusively told PageSix that the Yeezy designer has been interested in dating for a while now and actively pursued the model not long after his split from Kim.
The source went on to reveal, “Kanye always had a thing for Irina, so she came to mind early on in his divorce from Kim. He decided to shoot his shot, and it worked.”
Irina was previously linked to actor Bradley Cooper. The former couple share a four-year-old daughter together named Lea, and she remains a top priority for Irina.
“Irina is a very hands-on mother and won’t let a new romance distract her from her daughter, so it’s perfect that things with Kanye are very casual and laid-back at the moment,” said the source.
Despite Kanye having his sights set on Irina long before they got together, the source noted, “They’re still getting acquainted, but the spark is definitely there, and Kanye likes where things are headed.”
While Kanye and Irina’s romance continues to heat up, Kim has continued to heat up her Instagram page with countless bikini photos and seductive looks.
She was reportedly linked to CNN reporter Van Jones earlier this year; however, that was never confirmed.
At the time of these romance rumors, the DailyMail reported the pair have been friends for years, and speculation of their friendship turning into something more possibly occurred during her four-year law apprenticeship with his Oakland-based nonpartisan organization, #cut50.
A rep for the SKIMS founder said, “Kim is fine with it,” when referring to her ex-husband’s new relationship. “She just wants him to be happy and healthy.”
