This January, after months of speculation and undercover Insta work, Kim Kardashian made the decision to pull the plug on her six-year marriage with Kanye West and they started divorce proceedings.

The couple, who were together for 13 years and share four children together - North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, one – have tried to keep the split super private and reasonable. Kim has stayed at home in Calabasas whilst Kanye has been living on their ranch in Wyoming.

In recent Keeping Up With The Kardashian scenes, Kim was shown crying over her situation with Kanye where she admitted she felt like she had "failed him".

And even though their relationship seems to be amicable – Kim shared a tribute to him on his birthday in June – there has been rumours circling that Kanye has moved on with Russian supermodel Irina Shayk.

According to reports in TMZ, Kanye started pursuing Bradley Cooper’s ex Irina, who he has known in a professional capacity for years, and they even celebrated his birthday together in France.

A source spilled, "They have known each other professionally for years. He started pursuing her a few weeks ago. Kanye is a persuasive guy.

"She seems smitten. He invited her to France and she happily accepted," they added.

"They are not officially dating, but there is an interest from both sides."

So who is Kanye’s rumoured new squeeze Irina? We take a deep dive…

They both go way back with the supermodel having starred as Yeezy’s muse in the 2010 video for Power. According to reports, the pair have been connected in a professional sense ‘for years’.

Who is Irina Shayk?

She’s one of the biggest supermodels in the entire world, no biggie. Born in Russia, Irina gained acclaim when she was the first Russian model to appear on the cover of Sports Ilustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2011.

As well as appearing on the cover of pretty much every single fashion magazine, Irina has walked the runways and appeared in advertising campaigns of Miu Miu, Versace, Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and so many more.

In 2014, she made her acting debut as Megara alongside Dwayne Johnson in Hercules.
