Getting serious or just having fun? Kanye West and Irina Shayk have been cozying up in Provence, France lately. And Kim Kardashian’s fans are wondering what is exactly is going on between the two celebs.

Though the rapper has kept quiet about his divorce from Kim Kardashian, Kanye’s actions are speaking louder than his words. He’s ready to move on!

In photos snapped by The Daily Mail, Kanye is sporting all-black attire and some big smiles as he walks through lush scenery with Bradley Cooper’s ex. The couple can be seen getting close to one another, as they are escorted by big, burly bodyguards.

Their vacation to France just so happened to be during Kanye’s 44th birthday, and while he was shacking up with a Russian supermodel, his family and friends were shouting him out on social media. Most notable was Kim Kardashian’s birthday wishes.

“Happy Birthday,” she wrote in the caption beneath an airplane picture of her, Kanye, and the kids. “Love U for Life!” It’s not confirmed whether Kim K knew of Kanye’s whereabouts, but given that it’s only been four months after the confirmed split, it’s likely she would have some choice bars to spit at the rapper.

How close Kanye West and Irina Shayk are is unknown, however, TMZ confirmed that sparks are officially flying. The birthday excursion was not a one-time deal, nor was it a friends-only trip. Instead, it seems Kanye is ready to move on from the Kardashian queen.

As for Kim Kardashian, there’s been no new man. It seems that the entrepreneur and reality star has plenty of other things on her plate. If she does have a new partner, she’s not ready to spill the beans. The breakup with Kanye was a tough choice, and Kim opened up about the decision and the events leading up to it in the trailer for KUWTK.

After throwing a temper tantrum at a plate of cookies and breaking down to her family in the dramatic first look at the final season, it seems Kim has a few demons to slay first before getting hitched once again. Kanye, however, is not wasting any time.

He and Irina Shayk are probably just hooking up for now, and until photographers snap pictures of future romantic vacations, that’s as far as anyone can speculate.

Kanye West’s choice of rebound is not entirely surprising. Both he and Irina are known colleagues. The Yeezy founder has had the supermodel walk the runway with his signature gear, and Kanye’s even dropped a few rhymes with Irina’s name.

Irina Shayk is no stranger to high-profile relationships either. She and Bradley Cooper were together for a long time and share a daughter. The two were spotted in March taking little Lea to her Russian lesson. Their co-parenting has been described as “in sync,” and Irina told Elle that Cooper is “the most amazing dad.”

Great dad or not, Irina Shayk is ready to move on. And it seems Kanye West’s the lucky gentleman. Now that the pair has been seen together on foreign soil, it’s likely fans will catch glimpses of the superstar couple closer to home.
