The elusive Kanye West was seen without his wedding ring as he attempted to go very incognito under a bizarre face mask while out in Los Angeles.
Just days after what would have been he and Kim Kardashian’s seventh wedding anniversary, the rapper, 42, seemed to make a statement as he flashed a ringless finger while getting out of his Maybach.
But despite looking largely unattached, new reports surfaced this week that the Runaway singer may be ‘secretly dating’ Russian supermodel Irina Shayk amid his divorce from the billionaire reality star.
Ringless: Kanye West, 42, was glimpsed without his wedding ring as he attempted to go incognito under a bizarre looking face mask on a solo outing in Los Angeles
The eccentric Yeezy designer was seen shielding his face under a very bizarre balaclava face mask that covered his whole head.
The rest of his ensemble was a little more subdued and included athletic pants with zipper detailing and a long sleeved black T-shirt.
But his choice of footwear was a dead giveaway as he was seen in his Yeezy Foam RNNR sneakers while walking through a parking lot.
And though he had been spotted wearing his gold eternity band in an Instagram photo posted by DJ Khaled last month, it seemed as if the rapper was ready to let go of the notion of ‘forever’ as divorce proceedings continue.
Both West and Kardashian were reportedly ‘devastated’ and ‘upset’ the marriage did not work out, but tension in the marriage had been brewing for a long time.

Home base: Over the past year the rapper has been living predominantly on the couple’s Wyoming ranch whereas Kim has been with their four kids in LA
The SKIMS founder was said to have met with her high profile divorce attorney Laura Wasser as early as July 2020, before she made the decision to legally end their marriage in February.
In her filing, Kim cited ‘irreconcilable differences,’ as the grounds for divorce and asked for joint custody over their four children North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
West’s attorney’s responded months later where agreeing to the terms put forth which included the ‘irreconcilable differences,’ case label, joint custody and no spousal support for either party.
On this week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashian, West made a very brief appearance as he helped Kim surprise mom Kris Jenner for her birthday on what would have been November 5, 2020, with a lavish display of 65 designer looks.

Rare appearance: On this week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashian, West made a very brief appearance as he helped Kim surprise mom Kris Jenner for her birthday on what would have been November 5, 2020 but by that time the pair were reportedly living ‘separate lives’
But by that time it was said that the pair were living ‘separate lives,’ with West increasingly spending the majority of time at his Wyoming ranch.
As the pair continue to divide their shared assets which include various luxury items like cars, art, and jewelry, they were said to be communicating exclusively through lawyers.
And though a source said that Kim was ‘not ready to date,’ yet, West fueled dating rumors with someone he’s known for over a decade.
Despite a Page Six source alleging in April that West wanted his next relationship to be ‘with an artist and a creative person,’ so ‘they can speak the same language,’ various tipsters wrote into DeuxMoi to report that West is ‘dating’ Irina Shayk.

Confirmation: ‘Def dating,’ wrote the tipster, to which the account inquired if it was true which prompted a ‘Yes’
This week multiple anonymous users wrote into the unverified but credible celebrity tea-spilling account — which frequently posts ‘blind’ celebrity items that are later revealed to be true — to share that the pair were a new item.
One anonymous user messaged: ‘Kanye West is now secretly dating Irina Shayk aka Bradley Cooper’s baby mama,’ which was posted on the account.
The page administrator wrote under the tip in asterisks: ‘*after further looking into this idk if ‘dating’ is the right word, but there is perhaps some interest there.’
But just hours later another anonymous source wrote in and seemed to confirm that they were indeed dating.
‘Def dating,’ wrote the tipster, to which the account inquired if it was true which prompted a ‘Yes.’
