Kanye West and Irina Shayk have gone their separate ways after dating for several months, according to sources.

The rap mogul and the Russian model sparked romance rumors last month, when they were seen at a hotel in France for his 44th birthday.

Kanye apparently invited Irina to go to Paris with him for an upcoming couture fashion show but she declined.

“She likes him as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him,” a source told the New York Post’s Page Six.

“She doesn’t want the association that they are dating, which is what would have run in the press if she showed up (in Paris with him). It would have been another month of news saying that they are dating. She doesn’t want to be linked with anyone right now. She is happy being single.”

Kanye and Irina’s relationship caused a media frenzy that fizzled after 48 hours.

The mega producer is reportedly upset that the tabloids and the public lost interest in them as a couple.

Russia’s first Sports Illustrated cover beauty appeared in his 2010 music video for “Power”, and previously modeled for his Yeezy fashion line. He also gave her a shout-out in his “Christian Dior Denim Flow” track over a decade ago.

Kanye split from wife Kim Kardashian – the mother of his four children – earlier this year, and the pair are in the midst of obtaining a divorce.

Irina shares a daughter with American actor Bradley Cooper. She previously dated Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
