Back in February, the world was shocked by the news of divorce between none other than Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who had been with each other for seven years and have four children together.
“They have both been living separate lives for months now,” a source told US when the news first broke. “Kim and Kanye haven’t been on the same page for a while now.” The media seemed to get glimpses of this very fact toward the end of the relationship when the couple was being continuously photographed in what seemed like serious disagreements.
Despite all this, the two seem to still have love for each other. On social media Kardashian captioned a recent post “Happy birthday, love U for life.” along with a slew of family photos to her story. It is also apparent that they have moved on to new things. Kardashian reportedly, “Has grown in the past year and is studying law so she can really make a change and provide a better world for her kids,” according to a close source. West isn’t hiding that he is on the dating scene. He has recently been photographed in France with a new woman, model Irina Shayk.
This new relationship may not be as random or sudden as you might think, as the two seem to have known each other for years. Shayk appeared in Kanye’s “Power” MV ten years ago, and she has also been shouted out in his song “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” as well as modeling one of his collections during Paris Fashion Week.
They returned to the states on Wednesday and were photographed walking together in France and seemingly were there to celebrate West’s 44th birthday.
West began “pursuing” Shayk several weeks ago and invited her to visit Villa La Coste, where they stayed for three nights, a source also told People. Close sources have also described Shayk as smitten, but the two are said to not be official.
Of course, “sources” might not always be correct, so take what you will with all these photos and information. There’s no way to say just exactly what the pair are to each other, but we wish them well nonetheless. When it comes to celebrities, everything is a rumor until confirmed otherwise.
