Less than four months after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West, rumors of West's budding relationship with Irina Shayk broke the news, where the two were spotted strolling together in France. And get this, Kardashian "knew" about it, but "doesn't mind."
According to Us Weekly's source, "Kim knew that Kanye and Irina were dating" and that the rapper and model have "been quietly seeing each other for a couple of months."
The source also told the publication that the reality star "doesn’t mind because she saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley (Cooper)," adding that Kardashian won't like her estranged husband to be involved with someone "who’s going to talk to the press.”
The rumored couple met "a while back" and "have known each other professionally for years," says another source to PEOPLE—Shayk modeled for Yeezy and appeared in the rapper's music video for Power. West also name-dropped her in his song, Christian Dior Denim Flow back in 2010.
"He started pursuing her a few weeks ago. Kanye is a persuasive guy," the source says. The couple have hung out in NYC prior to their trip to France a few days ago for West's 44th birthday.
"She seems smitten. He invited her to France and she happily accepted," the source adds. "They are not officially dating, but there is an interest from both sides."
In last week's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kardashian broke down crying to her sisters about her crumbling marriage with West. She told them that she's "stuck" and feels like a "loser" for having to end her third marriage.
