Kanye West is moving on and maybe found a new girlfriend after splitting from Kim Kardashian.
West who has been married to Kim Kardashian-West for the past seven years, called it quits earlier this year. Kim filed for divorce in February and the separation has been reported to be as “amicable as a divorce can be.”
Well, the rapper and Yeezy fashion designer has a new lady in supermodel Irina Shayk. The reported couple were spotted together for the first time in France for Kanye’s 44 birthday party.
It hasn’t been confirmed if the two are an exclusive item, but some US reports suggest they are “romantically involved”. Complex cited a report by TMZ claiming a source close to Shayk and West said they are “100% romantically together” but that it’s “unclear how serious”.
Shayk has had two previous high profile relationships, most recently with actor Bradley Cooper and the former couple have a daughter together. She was also in a relationship with football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for five years.
Kardashian did wish Kanye a happy birthday and said she would love him “for life”.

In divorce papers filed by Kardashian she is asking for joint custody of the couple’s four children, with her lawyer Laura Wasser reportedly handing in the divorce papers.
Kim and Kanye started dating in 2012 and married in a lavish ceremony in Italy two years later, rapidly becoming one of the world’s most instantly recognisable couples.
West has in the past had public outbursts about his relationship with his wife. One time he admitted he wanted divorce much earlier and was not a fan of her family, particularly her mother, Kris Jenner. Kanye infamously called her “Kim Jong-Un” during his rants on his failed presidential campaign in 2020.
