After Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, Kanye West wasted no time in reaching out to model Irina Shayk.

“Kanye was the first one to reach out,” a source told Us Weekly. “The romance was similar to his [relationship] with Kim [Kardashian] because he saw her on his [‘Power’] video shoot in 2010 and thought she was gorgeous. He always thought she was special and she held a place in his mind.”

Ye has been waiting for the opportunity to strike.

KANYE WEST SPEAKS ON BEING A CREATIVE

“Kanye always had a thing for Irina, so she came to mind early on in his divorce from Kim,” a source told the magazine. “He decided to shoot his shot, and it worked. Kanye and Irina are in a honeymoon, lovey-dovey phase right now. They’re getting to know each other and having a lot of fun. It’s not serious yet, but they like each other a lot.”

Kanye and Kim have said they will continue to co-parent their four children.
