Amid his and reality TV queen Kim Kardashian ’s divorce, Kanye continues to figure out his life without Kim and pushes on with his new Victoria's Secret star bae.

The insider also mentioned that he was “the first one to reach out” and that “Kanye also loves that Irina is an established and respected model in the fashion community”.
“He loves that she carries clout with the fashion world,” the source adds.
“He thinks they could be a very chic power couple.”
Kanye, 44, and Irina, 35, were first papped together in France earlier this month.
A second insider revealed that the pair “have been spending time together and getting to know one another”.
The pair first crossed paths when she appeared in his 2010 music video for Power and she later walked in his Yeezy 2012 runway show at Paris Fashion Week.
Another source told Us Weekly: “He’s always thought she was beautiful and they’re both looking forward to seeing where this goes.”
Kim, 40, who filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage to the rapper, was reportedly aware of the romance before it hit the headlines.
Prior to Kanye, Irina was in a relationship with Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper
“Kim doesn’t mind because she saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley [Cooper],” a source told Us Weekly.
Irina and actor Bradley Cooper, 46, dated from 2015 to 2019 and share their three-year-old daughter Lea de Seine.
“Bradley would be fully supportive of whoever Irina chooses to date — he just wants her to be happy,” the source added.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star spilled the reasons for their split — including her estranged husband’s move to Wyoming — during the finale of KUWTK.
“After turning 40 this year, I realised like, ‘No, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state,” Kim said.
“To me, I thought, ‘Oh, my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best,’ but then that is sad to me and that’s not what I want. I want someone that we have the same shows in common. I want someone who wants to work out with me.”
