New Jersey: The New Paris?
West, 44, and Shayk, 35, disembarked a shared private jet in Teterboro, NJ, but did not leave the airport together, a source told Page Six.
West shed the odd religious-themed facial covering he was spotted wearing in LA recently in favor of a more seasonally appropriate blue windbreaker. He was snapped either attempting to hide his face from paparazzi or use the windbreaker as a makeshift mask, presumably to be in compliance with the airport’s COVID-19 regulations.
The “Closed on Sunday” rapper and Russian-born model were seen together in Provence this week, apparently celebrating West’s 44th birthday on June 8. A source then confirmed to Page Six Wednesday that the two have been dating “for a few weeks now.”
“Kanye and Irina are seeing each other,” the insider said. “It’s casual at the moment, but they are into each other.”
West and Shayk have history together: The model appeared in the rapper’s 2010 music video for “Power,” going on to walk in the Yeezy show at Paris Fashion Week show in 2012. West gave a shout-out to Shayk in his 2010 song “Christian Dior Denim Flow,” rapping, “I wanna see Irina Shayk next to [Dutch model] Doutzen [Kroes].”
Shayk is the first woman West has been linked to since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February after seven years of marriage. The estranged couple share four children: North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2.
