After sparking romance rumors last month, Yeezy and Irina Shayk are reportedly taking their relationship to the next level. The rapper and supermodel were spotted celebrating his 44th birthday in the French region of Provence on Tuesday (June 8). According to TMZ, the two were smiling and strolling around a luxury boutique hotel while “looking very much like a couple.”
TMZ claims they are “100% romantically together,” but it’s unclear how serious their relationship is at this point.
The Instagram gossip account DeuxMoi was first to report that Kanye was “secretly dating Irina Shayk aka Bradley Cooper’s baby mama.”
The two have been linked before, but not romantically. Back in 2010, the Russian model was featured as an angel in Kanye’s “Power” video. She also modeled in his Yeezy show at Paris Fashion Week. Additionally, Kanye name-checked Shayk on 2010’s “Christian Dior Denim Flow.”
In honor of Kanye’s birthday on Tuesday, his estranged wife Kim Kardashian wished him on social media. “Happy Birthday Love U for Life!” wrote Kim, who filed for divorce in February after nearly seven years of marriage.
Kanye celebrated his birthday by launching the first piece in his Yeezy Gap collection, a $200 blue nylon puffer jacket. His manager also announced that his new album, possibly titled West Day Ever, is on the way.
