Shayk had even sashayed down the runway for the `Fade` rapper`s 2012 Paris Fashion Week show. While the two knew each other because of their work, sparks only flew recently. As a separate source put it, “Kanye and Irina connected recently when they were both in New York City. They met up one night and had chemi-stry and h** it off.”
The insider explained, “It`s very casual and they have only been in touch for about a month.
If it doesn`t impact her kids, then she doesn`t mind if Kanye dates,” a source told the entertainment portal. Irina was previously in a relationship with Bradley Cooper. They spl*t in June 2019 after four years being together. They are parents to their 4-year-old daughter, Lea.
