AceShowbiz - Kanye West seemed to have his own way to beat the summer heat. While spending time apart from Irina Shayk, the "Flashing Lights" rapper sported a balaclava headwear in the midst of Los Angeles' burning heatwave.
On Tuesday, June 15, the Grammy-winning rapper could be seen rocking a full balaclava headpiece during a casual stroll around town, while the temperatures ranged from 90 to over 100 degrees. For the outing, the estranged husband of Kim Kardashian wore a blue long-sleeved T-shirt and a pair of dark pants. He matched his outfit with blue sneakers.
Meanwhile, his rumored girlfriend Irina, who is currently in New York City, showed more skin during the hot summer day. On Wednesday, June 16, the Russian supermodel looked stunning in a black corset top and low-waisted light blue jeans.
Of his budding relationship with the 35-year-old supermodel, a source informed PEOPLE, "Kanye is doing well. He had a great trip to France with Irina. They will date long distance." The source further spilled as saying, "Kanye will continue to be L.A.-based. He has no plans to move to NYC."
"His kids live in L.A.," the insider reasoned, referring to his children he shares with the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star, 8-year-old daughter North, 5-year-old son Saint, 3-year-old daughter Chicago and 2-year-old son Psalm. "He is very focused on business in LA too. He likes spending time with Irina though and plans to see her soon again."
Irina herself seemed to be "excited" and ready to "move on." A source close to the catwalk beauty told HollywoodLife.com, "She's excited and she's been ready to move on and find someone." The insider added that she was thrilled when Kanye reached out to her asking her to hang out."
The source continued, "She doesn't want to be known as just someone who's associated [with] Bradley Cooper." The so-called inside source claimed that Irina "likes" the Grammy-winning singer. "This is a Hollywood merger of a new Hollywood power couple in her eyes, of Kanye and Irina, and it feels big to her for her career, but she also likes Kanye. She's ready for this," the source told the outlet.
While neither of the pair has confirmed the swirling speculations, it was previously rumored that Irina and Kanye had been dating since March, a few months prior to their trip to France. According to TMZ, they were seen together in New York City in late April, when the 44-year-old rapper was in town for DMX's memorial service.
