Kanye west and Irina Shayk were a feature long before their romantic getaway to France … and the DMX the memorial service was an early sign that Ye was on the rebound.
Sources linked to the new couple tell TMZ… Ye and Irina have been together for months, seeing each other in March. In fact, one of the new couple’s previous dating sessions was in New York City in late April, when Kanye was there for the DMX Celebration of Life.
There were then signs that Yeezy and Irina were an object… she was spotted wearing a personalized DMX commemorative shirt even before it was in the hands of the general public.
Remember … the custom X shirts were designed by Balenciaga and commissioned by the brand Yeezy, and Kanye helped raise over a million dollars for the DMX family with the benefits.
As we first told you … Ye and the model were hanged in France on his 44th birthday on Tuesday before hopping on a private jet on Wednesday and return to the United States together.
This is the first public date we’ve seen Kanye or Kim kardashian do since she filed for divorce in February, but he and Irina have a bit of history … professionally speaking.
Kanye rapped about her in “Christian Dior Denim Flow” saying, “I want to see Irina Shayk next to Doutzen” – and she was in her music video for “Power” as well. It’s a good bet, however, they did a lot more than look back on the good old days.
