Irina Shayk / Kanye West
This summer, 35-year-old Russian model Irina Shayk has been in the spotlight after rumors surfaced of her romance with 44-year-old Kanye West, who parted ways with his wife Kim Kardashian earlier this year. What really connected the model and the rapper is unknown. According to insiders, Shayk and West spent a lot of time together (they even went on vacation to France), felt sympathy for each other and were more than just friends. However, two months later, they decided to part ways, while maintaining a good relationship.
In an interview with Highsnobiety, Shayk first commented on rumors of an affair with the rapper. Judging by her words, the degree of romance of their relationship was greatly exaggerated.
There will be rumors tomorrow that I’m seeing my doorman, and? And the day after tomorrow it will be someone else. There's always something going on in my love life, I just keep it to myself,
– she said.
Irina Shayk prefers not to talk about her personal life. She owes such discretion and restraint to her roots.
My grandmother was a secret agent during World War II. I think privacy should be kept private. Irina in the style of the KGB,
– she said.
However, she sometimes talks about her past relationship – with 46-year-old Bradley Cooper. The former lovers have a four-year-old daughter, Leia, whom they bring up together – the girl spends time with both her mother and her father, who, after parting, remained friends.
He is a great, caring father. No nanny needed. She and Leia went on vacation for two weeks, and I never called them,
– noted Shayk.
Irina added that she and Cooper are rather strict parents and teach their daughter good manners.
When she finishes eating, she gets up from the table, grabs the plate and says “thanks.” Without “please” or “thank you” she won't get anything,
– said the star.
The model also admitted that Leia for a long time could not get used to the paparazzi, who always haunt a star family, as soon as they go out. But Irina explained to her daughter that photographers are just doing their job and she doesn't need to be afraid of them.
