Regardless of the two not currently seeing each other, the rapper seems to be in good spirits. Earlier this week, the 44-year-old was spotted with a group of friends at a restaurant to watch the Phoenix Suns play the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA Finals. According to US Weekly, West seemed “relaxed and comfortable and was smiling and having a good time.”
According to the magazine, the ‘Good Morning’ rapper even stood up at one point during dinner and declared his admiration for point guard on the Suns, Chris Paul. A source said that West gave a moving speech about the player who is still playing after15 years in the league.
Maybe West is realizing he needs to take some time for himself and a break from dating after his publicized divorce from Kim Kardashian and now Shayk wanting to pause things.
According to Page Six, “She likes him as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him.”
“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,” the Page Six source went on to say.
Shayk, who is co-parenting a daughter with actor Bradley Cooper, is reportedly enjoying single life. “She doesn’t want to be linked with anyone right now,” a said. “She is happy being single.”
