The love between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian is no longer, and Ye is apparently ready to move on. As reported before, the two are no longer a couple as Kardashian filed for a divorce from the “Wash Us In The Blood” rapper. Sources have claimed that West may be ready to date and if the rumors are true, he’s moved on to model Irina Shayk.
Rumors of a shake-up in the KimYe relationship would constantly plague the pair throughout their marriage. Page Six then broke the news of a breakup then hit the Internet at the top of the year. A source for Kardashian told the publication that “divorce was imminent” as she had “grown a lot.”
“She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign,” the source added. “Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s–t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Kanye, however, has seemingly been hinting at the now estranged couple’s troubles since the summer of 2020. During a series of rants, the Chicago rapper once tweeted “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” which many felt was just one of Ye’s “episodes.” The same rant shows the rapper referring to Kris Jenner as “Kris Jong-Un.”

Kim would soon be noticed out and about without her wedding ring, and finally in February Kardashian filed for divorce. In the midst, it was also rumored that Kanye West had been seeing Internet star Jeffree Star in a homosexual relationship. The rumors would later prove to be fabricated by a popular TikTok user. Jeffree Star would also finally come forward to confirm that they were false after feeding into the rumors for what seemed like “clout-chasing.”
Meanwhile, Kim has been fielding off rumors that she had suitors lined up in the hopes that they could be next in line for a space in her heart. We previously reported on the recent billionaire’s DM’s popping off from billionaires and other hopefuls. “People are reaching out through mutual friends and people that she’s worked with to set her up with everyone from royal family members to A-list actors to athletes to billionaire CEOs,” said a source to Page Six. “People are also trying to reach out to her via DM.”
Kardashian has also been rumored to be tied to both Van Jones and lately, Drake. On a recent “Hot Topics” segment on The Wendy Williams Show, the talk show host shares claims of a recent interaction with Kim and the self-proclaimed “Certified Lover Boy”, acknowledging the rumors have been going on for years.
“The rumor’s have been for years that they have been dating or hooking up or whatever… Well, they arrived separately to Kendall’s tequila party,” Wendy dished. “Kendall has a tequila and she just launched it. Kim arrived separately in a Yellow Cab, while Drake arrived separately, as well.”
Wendy continued, “The rumor was they were all over each other inside the party. Do I believe this? For a moment.” A relationship between Kardashian and the rapper would bring much controversy especially as it pertains to the tensions between Drake and Kanye.
“Drake’s been crushing on Kim for years, and they’ve already exchanged some flirty texts,” said an insider according to Ok! Magazine. “Kanye would be livid if he found out! You’d think she would have sworn off men, at least temporarily, given how crazy things got with Kanye at the end. But Kim’s told her Hollywood pals that she’s open to being set up, and she’s even been checking out some exclusive dating sites.”
However, a recent report from Hollywood Life states that the mother to the 4 West children is “moving forward” with life and isn’t ready to date just yet. “She’s in a good place and she’s happy,” the source said. “She’s letting the past go and throwing herself into work and the kids. She’s still not ready to date, but she’s in a much better place than she was a year ago.
They continued, “She was devastated the marriage didn’t work out. Kim has always wanted a husband and family, but she knows this is for the best for all of them and it needed to happen. She will always love Kanye and it was a very real, true love.”
Kanye, on the other hand, reportedly is ready to make moves in the dating world as it was reported that he was looking to be “with an artist and a creative person so they can speak the same language to each other,” according to Page Six. With that Ye had his own set of creatives shooting their shots, including Azealia Banks.
If recent reports are correct, however, Banks might be too late as Ye is now being romantically linked to model Irina Shayk. Instagram gossip site DeuxMoi shared that the two had been spending time together. “Kanye West is now secretly dating Irina Shayk aka [A Star Is Born actor] Bradley Cooper’s baby mama.”
The Instagram account continued, “After further looking into this, I don’t know if “dating” is the right word, but there is perhaps some interest there.”
Kanye has not confirmed or denied the rumors, nor has the model. Upon hearing the news of the potential relationship, a source claimed to The Sun that “Kim doesn’t buy into the Irina rumors at all.”
