Kanye West has been zoned by Irina Shayk, report says
Irina Shayk apparently uses common sense and puts the brakes on the idea that she wants to become Kanye West’s serious new girlfriend.
Reports on page 6 that the Russian-born model, mother of one and serious ex-girlfriend of Bradley Cooper, turned down West’s invitation to accompany her to Paris for a fashion show last week. In fact, she let the billionaire rapper and fashion designer know that she just wants to be friends, not lover.
“She loves him as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him,” a source told Page Six, explaining that Shayk wanted to avoid more headlines about his replacement of Kim Kardashian as West’s new partner.
“She doesn’t want the association they’re dating, which would have been in the press if she showed up (in Paris with him),” the source added. “It would have been another month of news saying they were dating.”
News that West, 44, and Shayk, 35, were dating broke last month when the Daily Mail posted photos of the two vacationing together at a luxury hotel in southern France.

TMZ also reported that West and Shayk were seen smiling and walking around the grounds of the Hotel Provençal with friends and also alone, very much like a couple. Another report cited a source who said they “are 100% involved in a romantic relationship,” while an eyewitness told E! News that “they looked incredibly happy and relaxed”.
TMZ added that West and Shayk have a professional history: she walked the runway on his Yeezy shows in Paris and he named her in some of his songs.
But the Page Six source disputed any notion that Shayk was “on vacation with West” in France. The source said she was there with others who were helping the rapper celebrate his 44th birthday.
“She went to her birthday party as a friend,” the source said. “There were 50 other people there.
The insider further stated that Shayk is happy to be single as she focuses on her own fashion design work and co-parenting her 4-year-old daughter with Cooper.

“She doesn’t want to be linked with anyone right now,” the source said. “She’s happy to be single.”
Granted, by keeping West in the “friends zone,” Shayk potentially avoids a lot of potential drama. She had her share of drama in the final months of her four-year relationship with Cooper in 2019.
Shayk and Cooper have been the target of persistent reports that their relationship was “hanging by a thread” following rumors that he and Lady Gaga, his “A Star is Born” co-star, had become particularly close during filming and during the promotion of the film. in the fall of 2018.
But West could certainly add his own drama to Shayk’s life. First and foremost, his future ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her famous family have always been drama-driven, with their brand founded on sharing intimate, albeit carefully curated, details of their personal television lives and social networks. .
But over the years, the attention-seeking West has demonstrated its ability to cause a lot of drama on its own. Kardashian and others see him as a brilliant visionary and defend him as misunderstood when he stirs controversy by speaking out about culture and his love for Donald Trump.
West also suffers from bipolar disorder and reports indicate that he has at times been reluctant to take medication to manage his manic episodes. Her marriage to Kardashian fell apart after a manic episode reported last summer, when West launched a problematic presidential campaign and launched tirades at a campaign rally and on Twitter, accusing Kardashian of infidelity, attacking her mother and revealing that he and Kardashian had considered an abortion for their eldest child, North, who is 7.
But West can also place heavy demands on a romantic partner who might be hard to please, especially Shayk, who appears to have an established New York life with his work and co-parenting duties with Cooper.
West was known to view Kardashian’s body and personality as an “art” project when they first started dating, expressing a desire to transform her image into something “cooler” and more “believable” for him. general public, who once knew her as the star. a sex tape and a lowbrow reality TV show, Buzzfeed News reported. He would raid her closet and tell her what to wear, so she would be appropriately dressed for the cover of Vogue or for the red carpet at the Met Gala.
When Kardashian established herself as a global celebrity and fashion entrepreneur, “there was nothing substantial left to tie (her and West) together,” Buzzfeed News added.
During the final season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kardashian also revealed that West has special needs with a romantic partner that she struggles to meet. She said West needed a woman in his life who could “support his every move” and “go follow him everywhere.”
“I can’t do that, he should have a woman who supports his every move, travels with him and does it all, and I can’t,” an emotional Kardashian said on the show.
