Kanye West and Irina Shayk Officially Call it Quits

Kanye West and Irina Shayk have decided to go their separate ways.

A source confirmed the split to US Weekly saying, “Kanye and Irina are over, but they never really started, there’s nothing going on there.”

The insider also mentioned that Shayk realized “they aren’t great romantic partners” which is why they may have decided to call it quits.

West and Shayk were first spotted together in May celebrating the rapper’s birthday in France. It was later speculated in June that the two were quietly seeing each other during the rapper’s birthday. Then, in July, the rumor mill kept swirling even after a source said that they were “just friends.”

According to US Weekly, a source said 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.”

Kanye is coming off a recent divorce from ex-wife Kim Kardashian, and Shayk previously dated actor Bradley Cooper from 2015 to 2019. West and Kardashian share four children together and Shayk and Cooper have one daughter.

Kim was aware of Kanye’s new relationship following their split. An insider told US Weekly that, “Kim doesn’t mind because she saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley.”

West and Shayk’s relationship seemed to fizzle quickly, though. The two began talking less and less while the supermodel focused on Paris Fashion Week and West moved into the Mercedes Benz Stadium to work on finishing his new album, Donda.
