Irina Shayk's dating history: From kid with Bradley Cooper to Dwayne Johnson and Kanye West rumors
The rumors of Russian supermodel, Irina Shayk, 35, dating Kanye West, 44 are hitting headlines again after they were spotted together in Provence, France on June 8 and then back in the US. They were reportedly staying at a luxury 600-acre boutique hotel together, named Villa La Coste in France. They were also spotted taking snaps together near the Giant Crouching Spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois at the Château La Coste Art Centre. Soon after their France trip, the duo was seen in the US on Wednesday, June 9. The pair were seen at the Teterboro Airport on Wednesday, where Kanye was seen with the hood of his blue jacket pulled tightly around his face as he kept his head down while going between a private jet and a waiting car. Irina kept it more casual in a white tracksuit, with her face covered with a black face mask and sunglasses, as she carried a small vanity case in one hand.
Kanye's an almost decade-long romance with reality star Kim Kardashian finally ended in a split in 2020, following which his dating rumors with Irina made the news. Their most recent sighting comes after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star sent her estranged husband a loving birthday message. Shayk too has split with her boyfriend of four years, Bradley Cooper, in 2019. While Irina shares a daughter with Cooper, Kanye shares four children with Kim. Irina's professional modeling career was launched in 2007. The Russian supermodel had a grand debut in the fashion industry when she made the cover of the 'Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue' back in 2011. In the course of her more than a decade-long career, Irina has dated some of the prominent names in the industry. Here's a sneak peek into the dating history of the supermodel.

Irina dated Italian businessman, Valerio Morabito during the initial phase of her career. They were even engaged but broke off the engagement soon after. People claim that Irina's newfound popularity was a major factor in the couple's breakup. The couple later confirmed that it was due to various disagreements.
Irina was linked with 'Linkin Park' drummer, Rob Bourdon in 2007. The said relationship was not so public as the details of when they started dating are not available. The couple allegedly broke up in October 2009.
Irina Shayk started dating Cristiano Ronaldo in May 2010. The couple first met on a set of an Armani advertisement shoot. Following Cristiano's cheating scandal with a waitress from America, the couple broke up in 2015. "There was no way around it as the truth was staring at her in the face," her friend shared at the time. "After much thought and consideration, she felt she couldn't ignore the signs." Following her decision to split, Irina immediately unfollowed Ronaldo on Twitter and deleted all personal images of the couple on her Instagram account. Later, both of them released statements stating that their relationship ended amicably.
Irina was rumored to have dated Dwayne Johnson soon after her break-up with Cristiano Ronaldo. They met on the set of the movie 'Hercules'. Neither Irina nor Dwayne gave official confirmation to their dating rumors ever. Their alleged relationship ended soon as friends of the model dismissed these claims in the first place.
Irina started seeing Bradley Cooper in April 2015 after his breakup with model Suki Waterhouse. Irina first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted at a Broadway production of Finding Neverland in New York in 2015. Cooper and Irina went viral when they appeared to get into a heated fight during the 2016 Wimbledon men’s final in London. There were tears from her and glares from him, but the couple dismissed the tears to hay fever. The couple had a child, a beautiful daughter named Lea De Seine together in March 2017. The couple went on well for some time but broke up after four years, following the controversy surrounding Cooper and his 'A Star is Born' colleague Lady Gaga in 2019. The couple, however, denied the claims and stated that their problems began way before and the break-up was inevitable. They are currently co-parenting their daughter.
Irina was also briefly linked with former FIFA president Sepp Blatter back in 2009. Blatter, 83, is 50 years older than Irina. However, there is no sufficient evidence to back the dating rumors between Blatter and Irina. The supermodel in 2015 secured an apology from a Spanish newspaper that falsely claimed she had an affair with scandal-ridden FIFA president. El Mundo admitted it “wrongfully stated” Shayk — the girlfriend of actor Bradley Cooper — was one of balding 79-year-old Blatter’s “many lovers” in a piece titled “All the Women in Blatter’s Life.”
Irina is also rumored to have dated Brazilian model Arthur Sales, who is six years younger than her. Reports state that the couple dated for over 6 months before calling it quits. While allegedly dating, the couple once more managed to keep it confidential. Speculations state Arthur met Irina at work with both of them hailing from modeling backgrounds. The only time this couple was seen in public was when they appeared to launch the ‘Xti 2011-12’ in March 2011 in Spain. The couple reportedly got together in February 2009 and parted ways in November 2009.
