Kanye West and Irina Shayk seemingly confirmed romance rumours as the pair enjoyed a cosy walk together in Provence, France.
It was the pair’s first sighting together and comes four months after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from the Gold Digger rapper after nearly seven years of marriage.
But it’s not the first time Kim, 40, and Irina, 35, have crossed paths with their love interests.
The duo also both famously dated football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo after Kim shared a brief fling with the Portuguese player in April 2010 before the model was with him for five years.
Kim’s whirlwind romance with the 36-year-old Juventus star followed her split from NFL star Reggie Bush.
The pair were spotted in Spain while Cristiano was on the books of Real Madrid and reportedly shared a kiss over lunch at La Dorado.
A source told Us Weekly magazine at the time that the duo were “very affectionate” over their meal.
The source claimed that the famous duo had then headed to the footballer’s pad where they spent several hours. They said the couple first met in LA after Cristiano discovered Kim had watched him at a game in Spain.
While Russian supermodel Irina and Cristiano’s official timeline is unclear, the pair were first linked in 2010 shortly after Kim and Cristiano had been “matched”.
It’s thought that the model and footballer met at the start of the year through an Armani Exchange campaign before things heated up when they went on a yacht trip together in May.
A month after the yacht adventure, the Portuguese footballer welcomed his son into the world with a mystery woman.
However, that didn’t stop the love-in and Irina and Cristiano took their relationship to the next level as they got engaged in 2011.
Then, in 2012, the pair featured on the front of Vogue Spain in a racy snap.
The wheels came off the romance though in 2015 as the pair ended their engagement and went their separate ways.
Irina went on to date Bradley Cooper, with whom she has a four-year-old daughter with.
Fast forward to 2021 and Irina is now reportedly paired up with Kim’s estranged husband Kanye.
A source told US gossip site DeuxMoi in May: ” Kanye West is now secretly dating Irina Shayk aka Bradley Cooper’s baby mama.”
The DeuxMoi Instagram later added: “After further looking into this, I don’t know if ‘dating’ is the right word, but there is perhaps some interest there.”
The duo have been spotted in France and Kanye has reportedly been staying at the luxury Villa La Costa boutique hotel over his 44th birthday.
Irina, who has known the rapper for over a decade, is also said to be in the same location and was spotted deep in conversation with the Yeezy star.
In the latest images obtained by the Mail Online, Kanye donned a black T-shirt and trousers as he walked alongside the supermodel.
