As OK! previously spilled, West reportedly asked Shayk to accompany him to a couture show in Paris during Fashion Week, but she turned him down — with one of the reasons being the Russian model wanted to avoid the mania that surrounds the “Famous” crooner. "She likes him as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him," an insider said.

"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]," the insider added. "It would have been another month of news saying that they are dating."

Now, insiders are claiming those rumors are “just not true,” noting: “Kanye went to Paris for the Balenciaga show to support Demna [Gvasalia]. He was in and out, only there for 3 hours," which is why the lovers didn’t spend time with one another.

News of the Grammy winner’s relationship with the Sports Illustrated model came less than six months after his messy split from ex Kim Kardashian, who filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage.

West and Kardashian share four kids, North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2, whereas Shayk shares 3-year-old daughter Lea with actor Bradley Cooper.
