Kanye West and Irina Shayk are 'cooling off' because the model 'doesn’t want to be associated with him'
KANYE West and Irina Shayk are reportedly "cooling off" because the model "doesn't want to be associated with dating him".
The rapper, 44, and catwalk star, 35, were first linked in April and spotted enjoying a trip to France to celebrate his birthday two months later.
While the vacation appeared to be romantic, sources have insisted Irina sees Kanye as a "friend".
In fact, the model – who has a four-year-old daughter Lea with her ex Bradley Cooper – recently turned down Kanye's invitation to go to Paris for a couture show with him, according to Page Six.
“She likes him as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him,” a source told the outlet.
“She doesn’t want the association that they are dating, which is what would have run in the press if she showed up [in Paris with him].
“It would have been another month of news saying that they are dating.”
The insider added that Irina only joined Kanye in Provence in June as a pal to celebrate his 44th.
“She went to his birthday party as a friend. There were 50 other people there," they claimed.
Irina and Kanye sparked dating rumors in April, when she was spotted wearing a DMX tribute T-shirt that he designed.
Sources claimed last month that they had been secretly hanging out in New York for weeks.
They were spotted strolling around the grounds of a boutique hotel in Provence with a group of friends and were later seen arriving back to New Jersey by private jet.
Their outing came after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye in February following six years of marriage.
The Flashing Lights rapper unfollowed his former partner and the whole Kardashian family over on Twitter.
He filed for joint and physical custody of their four children: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
As for Kim's love life, she recently insisted she is not dating her longtime friend, CNN reporter Van Jones, 52.
The KUWTK star had been linked to her legal mentor, 52, since April.
She addressed the dating speculation during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians' reunion show, the first part of The Final Curtain.
The TV personality said there was nothing going on between the two and that, if anything, the speculation has helped Van's love life.
Kim admitted: "Van texted me and was like, 'This rumor has gotten me so many dates and I'm so grateful, so I owe you.'"
