is cold in a post-Kardashian world, but he has his inexplicably zipper-less puffer jacket and possibly a new girlfriend to keep him warm.
Four, five seconds (OK, months) after the rapper and Kim Kardashian
dissolved their six-year marriage, he appears to be moving
on with world-famous Russian supermodel Irina Shayk
The two were spotted walking on the grounds of a luxe boutique hotel in the country's Provence region this week, where West reportedly spent his birthday with Shayk and a group of friends
, according to photos
obtained by The Daily Mail

“They were taking pictures of each other and the sculptures,” an eyewitness told E! News
, adding, “They looked incredibly happy and relaxed, and it was just them and a few friends.”
“She appears to be smitten; he invited her to France
, and she gladly accepted,” an unnamed People
source added. “They are not officially dating, but there is mutual interest.”
is ready to declare the couple "100% romantically together," while Us Weekly reports that they have "been quietly seeing each other for a couple months."
The photos come weeks after celebrity gossip account @DeuxMoi sparked rumors that West and Shayk were secretly dating on the heels of their high-profile breakups. Shayk split from actor and director Bradley Cooper in 2019 after four years together and one highly meme-able lover's quarrel at Wimbledon.

Kardashian and West are still working out the details of their divorce
, despite agreeing to joint physical
and legal custody of their four children
together back in April
– daughters North, 7, and Chicago
, 3; and sons Saint, 5, and Psalm, 2.
Since their split, the two have appeared to have kept things relatively low-key, with the SKIMS founder publicly declaring her love for the rapper "for life" in a post commemorating his birthday on Tuesday.
As for West and Shayk (are we ready to settle on IrinYe or Kanyk? ), they actually have a history. Years ago, she briefly appeared in the music video
for his song "Power," yes, the same one used to promote Cooper's thriller "Limitless," and walked in West's fall/winter fashion show during Paris Fashion Week back in 2012.
In his 2010 song "Christian Dior Denim Flow," he rapped, "I wanna see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen."
Fortunately, there has been little overlap between Shayk and Kardashian over the years, with a People source stating that the supermodel "isn't friends with Kim at all, so there's no weirdness there."
