The rapper Kanye West and the model Irina Shayk are rumored to be a couple, celebrating West’s birthday in France with an extravagantly lavish vacation. A fascinating aspect is how the pair met and that it seems to represent a pattern in West’s dating history.

West first met Shayk in 2010, when she appeared in the music video for his song “Power.” When the model walked the runway for the Yeezy fashion show in 2012, they crossed paths again during Paris Fashion Week.

Irina Valeryevna Shaykhlislamova, aka Irina Shayk, a Russian model, and actress, attained international stardom after appearing as the first Russian model on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s 2011 Swimsuit Issue. She is listed as an “Industry Icon” by Models.com.

Christiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper are among the celebrities to be dating Irina. She also shares a beautiful daughter, Lea, with Bradley.

According to a source, “Kanye reached out first. The romance was similar to his [relationship] with Kim Kardashian because he saw her on his video shoot in 2010 and thought she was gorgeous. He always thought she was special, and she held a place in his mind.”

As Kanye’s relationship with Kim Kardashian demonstrates, it’s not the first time he’s achieved something more serious due to a music video appearance.
The Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, who appeared in West’s “Runaway” video, was reported to have been in a romantic relationship with him late in 2010.
Additionally, West appeared in the video for “Bound 2” with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian. In the beginning, West met Kardashian while she was working as Brandy’s assistant, with whom West was filming at the time.

Following a six-year marriage, Kim Kardashian West has officially filed for divorce from rapper Kanye West. North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm West are the couple’s four children.


In the wake of Kanye West’s ill-fated presidential bid and after Kanye said he once considered aborting their first child at one of his rallies, Kim addressed Kanye’s bipolar disorder with fans on Instagram.
On February 19, Kim filed for divorce from Kanye after being married for almost seven years.

According to sources, Kim and Kanye separated amicably, and Kim requested joint legal and physical custody of their four children, which Kanye agreed to. Apparently, the couple is committed to co-parenting. Laura Wasser, a well-known divorce attorney, filed the documents, according to the publication.
