What's Going On With Kanye West and Irina Shayk?

This private plane is a one-way express to West's ranch... and maybe his heart, too

Paparazzi snapped pics of Kanye West and Irina Shayk aboard a private plane Wednesday; the latter appeared to be wearing his upcoming collaboration with Gap, a blue puffer jacket and Shayk dressed casually in white sweats. They were also reportedly spotted together in France. What the hell is going on?


According to a source who spoke with People Wednesday, West and Shayk have “known each other professionally for years. He started pursuing her a few weeks ago.” The source added that “she seems smitten,” but the two are “not officially dating.” However, Page Six claims that “multiple sources” confirmed the pair are in fact dating.

The Daily Mail also nabbed pictures of the duo in France.

West made headlines just a day before, when ex-wife Kim Kardashian shared a pic of the two with their children on Instagram, writing that she will love him “for life.” Meanwhile, on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which is in its final season, Kim was seen crying over her “failed” third marriage, and what people might think of her and West.

Shayk, meanwhile, has kept herself relatively out of the spotlight since her torrid, years-long romance with Bradley Cooper. A romance, by the way, that may or may not have imploded following just about 1000 rumors in the tabloids concerning his allegedly illicit fling with Lady Gaga. All parties involved have vehemently denied the gossip, which is fine, because we were gifted an incredible picture of Irina Shayk on a wellness sabbatical with a glacier that doesn’t exist anymore. Thanks global warming, and Bradley Cooper!

Good luck to both Shayk and West, neither of whom probably need it.

This is supposed to be a Janet Jackson song but the editing makes it sound like a horror soundtrack instead, which I think is iconic. Go, Britney, go!

Who’s watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? This season might give me an aneurysm, although there’s never been a better first season Housewife than Crystal Kung Minkoff.

Mortal Dictata

Who looks at Kanye and even with his current wealth goes “yeah, that’s a situation where the benefits outweigh the cons”?

Lilibet and Archie get to be prince and princess, apparently.

You mean that system in place for around a century that anyone with the ability to access the internet could’ve confirmed was the case (and did) for the last couple of decades even before that interview?

Of course if I had my way there’d be no titles for any of these obscenely wealthy scroungers on either side of the Atlantic calling themselves duke or duchess of this or that to fight over to begin with.
