Irina Shayk is unarguably one of the most beautiful women in the Russian modeling industry. The 35-year-old is what many would likely refer to as the men’s lady. She is gorgeous, talented, and wealthy, with over $25 million in net worth.
The model was born in Yemanzhelinsk, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union, to a half-Muslim father and Orthodox Christian mother, who later converted to Islam after her marriage. She gained prominence internationally in 2011, as the first Russian model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Over the years, Shayk has enjoyed her time in the spotlight, made friends in high places, made a lot of money, and above all, fallen in love several times Although none of these relationships seemed to last the test of time, the model is open to love and everything it brings.
In June 2019, the three-year face of Intimissimi and her boyfriend, Bradley Cooper, announced their split almost four years into the relationship. During this time, they had a daughter, Lea De Seine in Los Angeles. It’s been months now, but the actress is yet to begin a new relationship.
In light of this, let’s take a look into her past relationships with famous personalities. Keep reading below for more information.
Shayk was reportedly involved with Linkin Park drummer, Rob Bourdon from 2007 to 2009. However, the pair have never announced the nature of their relationship, or if they were ever romantically linked.
Although there were speculations online about this duo, the rumors soon subsided after media outlets could no longer assume, and the celebrities refused to give a statement. Nevertheless, this supposed relationship kicked off when the model was at the peak of her career. This could mean that they were not really serious, but it has been years now, all these conjectures have received no comments till now.
Bourdon is a known American musician and drummer, who co-founded the American rock band called Linkin Park. He was born on January 20, 1979 in Calabasas, California, U.S. Although Bourdon was the youngest member of the group, he was intrigued with drum playing and decided to take it instead.
Shayk was also romantically involved with the Brazilian model, Authur Sales sometime in 2009. Initially, the pair kept their romance a secret, for a while, but speculations and widespread photos of the pair further convinced fans that there was an item.
Sales were born in Recife, State of Pernambuco, Brazil on July 22, 1991. He became a popular Brazilian model, who was featured in several magazines, and fashion shows. The 30-year-old enjoys his career and spending time by the beach.
Although his relationship with Shayk was quite brief, the pair never really disclosed what turned their romance sour, neither did they ever disclose if there was a possibility for a comeback.
Prior to her relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, the model dated some popular personalities, however, none of these relationships were as pronounced and publicized as that of the Portuguese professional basketball player.
Us Weekly reported recently that the pair first got acquainted in 2010 when they attended an Armani event. It’s unclear exactly when the romance kicked off, but the news outlet noted that they became the ‘Hollywood It’ couple almost immediately.
Over the years, they were spotted on vacations and outings together, and although everything seemed to be going well with the couple, it wasn’t. In 2015, media houses confirmed that Ronaldo was the one who ended the relationship. The pair moved on to other people in no time.
Bradley Cooper currently holds the title of Shayk’s latest ex-boyfriend. The 46-year-old American actor started dating Shayk a couple of months after her split from the football player, Ronaldo.
The duo became very serious in the background while trying to keep a relatively low profile. Before long, social media users began speculating that the model was pregnant. She then confirmed this news on March 21, 2017, the day she gave birth.
Shayk and Cooper named their daughter Lea, after the model’s paternal grandmother, Galiya Shaykhlislamova. Also, they named the now two-year-old child the Seine, which means ‘river in Paris.’
As far as co-parenting goes, Cooper and Shayk seem to be doing a good job in the shadows.
And then there was Kanye West!
Following his divorce plans underway from his wife and mother of his kids, Kim Kardashian, West went on an ‘all breezy’ vacation with Shayk to France, popularly known as the city of love, which broke the internet from all angles.
Fans were taken aback by this sudden appearance, but from the looks of it, the pair were having a great time and could not be bothered by the paparazzi taking sizzling photos of them. The duo not only went on a trip, but they also jetted off during the rapper’s birthday, which further sparked speculations online that they could already be an item.
However, these rumors toned down when a source revealed to E! News that the duo was more casual than a romantic trip to the awesome country. The publication mentioned that West wanted to take photos of the model, so she tagged along as a kind of ‘muse.’ But did taking pictures have to last for three nights though? Who knows.
Another source confirmed to the news outlet that West and Shayk stayed in a hotel for three days, and flew back to the US immediately. The rapper who was going through a difficult phase needed the getaway. Since his return, the pair maintained quite a distance from one another and did not give any specifics on what the trip was truly about.
