Irina Shayk and Kanye West may seem like an unusual couple, but it really is a perfect marriage. The two stars are rooted in the fashion world and both are leaving high-profile relationships. For Shayk, it’s a new beginning after parting ways with actor Bradley Cooper two years ago.
The model is set to be part of a “powerful new Hollywood couple,” so she was “thrilled when Kanye asked her out,” according to a source from Hollywood Life. To be “known as just someone who is associated [with] Bradley Cooper “wasn’t cutting it for Shayk because” she is therefore ready to start the next chapter of his life. It was the perfect time for the two of them to step into each other’s lives.
Western insiders have claimed he is looking to date someone who “knows this world and is creative and well respected by himself,” according to Hollywood Life, and Shayk fits that bill perfectly. With a common history of working together over the past decade, they have taken to orbit on a professional level – now is the time to make it a little personal. Even though the relationship is around a month old, the duo seem to be enjoying each other’s company after a romantic anniversary trip to western Provence, France earlier this month.

After being stuck in Cooper’s shadow (especially during his A star is born Oscar campaign), Shayk probably thinks West is more his equal. The same could be said of the rapper, whose creative pursuits did not always match the meteoric career of ex-wife Kim Kardashian. A fashion designer and a model could be a very symbiotic fit – they were both looking for something different in a relationship and they found it in each other.
