It’s been three months since Kimye ground to a halt and divorce papers were filed and the exes seem to be moving well and truly on. 

Kim (40) has been hitting the party scene but isn’t “looking for anyone right now”, insiders say, while Kanye (43) has been romantically linked to Russian model Irina Shayk (35).

Yeezy has been cosying up to the model in secret for a while now, according to US gossip site DeuxMoi.

Irina, whose ex and baby daddy is actor Bradley Cooper, has a long history with Kanye. She starred in the music video for his hit 2010 track Power and strutted down the catwalk in his fall/winter fashion collection at Paris Fashion Week in 2012.

A few weeks ago, Irina was spotted in a $200 (R2 770) DMX tribute T-shirt designed by Kanye with fashion house Balenciaga while out with daughter Lea (4).

If the dating rumours are true, those close to Kim say she’s “not upset, or even bothered”, The Sun reports.

She doubts Kanye and Irina are even together, a source says. “Kim doesn't buy into the Irina rumours at all. To her, it's about some attention-seeking no one who tried to piggyback some clout off their wedding anniversary.”

Kim and Kanye would have celebrated their seventh wedding anniversary on 24 May.

“She's not bothered at all about it. No one in her circle appears to care or believe it. Even if it is true, I doubt she'll even be upset at this point.”

Since news of their split went public, the reality TV queen has been spotted out and about with several famous faces.

In April she was linked to Colombian singer Maluma after they attended the opening of The Goodtime Hotel in Miami, but insiders were quick to deny the rumours, telling Page Six they were just pals.

“They are just friends and have lots of mutual friends in common. It’s nothing romantic,” a source said.

Jamie is set to inherit a $26-billion fortune from his father, property-investor Simon Reuben, and he is the director at Britain's largest horseracing company.

No word yet if there are any sparks between him and Kim but, says a source, her sole focus now is ensuring divorce proceedings run smoothly.

Kanye has filed for joint custody of their four children, North (7), Saint (5), Chicago (3) and Psalm (2), and Kim is not expected to object to this.

“Kim is very happy that they have managed to keep things calm. She thinks Kanye is a good dad.

“She wants him to be able to spend as much time with the kids as he wants.”

The insider says that Kim also seems happier for “every week that goes by since she filed for divorce”, knowing it was the “right decision”.
