Kanye West and Irina Shayk have fuelled speculation that they are jolling after they were spotted taking a walk on his birthday.
The 44-year-old rapper – whose estranged wife Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February after almost seven years of marriage – and the 35-year-old supermodel were seen together in the French region of Provence on Tuesday.
According to DailyMail.com, the pair stayed at luxury boutique hotel Villa La Coste, where they are said to have arrived on Sunday before departing on Wednesday.
But other sources have claimed Kanye and Irina – who has a four-year-old daughter, Lea, with her ex Bradley Cooper – are not officially dating, and it’s unclear if they stayed at the hotel together.
A source told PEOPLE: “She seems smitten. He invited her to France and she happily accepted.
“They are not officially dating, but there is an interest from both sides.”
The pair are also said to have spent time together in New York City before heading to France.
The source added: “They have known each other professionally for years. He started pursuing her a few weeks ago. Kanye is a persuasive guy.
“He hung out with her in NYC before they celebrated his birthday in France.”
In 2010, Irina played an angel in Kanye's Power music video, and she has previously modelled for him.
Earlier this week, Kim, 40, wished Kanye a happy 44th birthday and declared she will love him “for life” on Instagram.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star – who has kids North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, with Kanye – captioned a throwback snap of them with three of their kids: “Happy Birthday. Love U for Life! (sic)”
