Kim Kardashian recently explained her decision to break up with Kanye West in the last episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that aired on Thursday, 18th June. However, there’s enough to suggest things have not gone all south in their friendship, with the reality TV star taking to Instagram to wish Kanye West a happy 44th earlier this month.
While Kim has been vocal about not wanting to jump into dating just yet, Kanye doesn’t quite feel the same way. He’s been linked to Irina Shayk for about a month now, even going on short vacation with the Russian model and video vixen during on his 44th birthday.
However, according to new sources close to the Kardashians, Kim is actually thrilled her ex has nurtured a new romance with Irina.
“[Kim is] genuinely happy for him and wants him to move on,” a source exclusively revealed to Us Weekly. “She thinks Irina is a great fit for him.” This news follows another source revealing to Us that the Yeezus artist and Shayk were officially an item.
“Kanye and Irina [are] dating,” another insider told Us at the time. “They’ve been quietly seeing each other for a couple months.” According to the original source, the new couple’s friends “don’t know if this will last or if it’s a fling.” Regardless, his friends are apparently glad he’s dating again.
“Kanye’s friends are happy that he’s moved on and has someone new,” the insider adds. Another source revealed to the publication that Kim knew about Ye’s new romance before it was made public, and was happy West picked Shayk due to her private nature.
“She saw how quiet and respectful Irina was after she broke up with Bradley,” said the source, explaining the beauty mogul “wouldn’t like” to see the father of her children move on with someone who talks to the press a lot.
