Kanye West Has Made His Dating Criteria Clear By Dating Irina Shayk After Kim Kardashian
Kanye West seems to have a "type", but not like most people. Instead, the rapper's preference seems to have more to do with how he first meets, or at least sees, potential partners and moves on from there. Yeezy designer and model Irina Shayk are reportedly an item that just took an extravagantly luxurious romantic getaway to France to celebrate West's birthday. What is particularly interesting, however, is how the couple met - and that this seems to reflect a pattern in West dating history.
West first met Shayk in 2010 when she appeared in his music video for his song "Power". The two crossed again in 2012 when the model walked the Yeezy runway at Paris Fashion Week.

This wouldn't be the first time a music video appearance led to something more serious for the rapper. In late 2010, West was reportedly dating Victoria's secret model Selita Ebanks, who appeared in his music video "Runaway".
And of course, West also starred in the video for "Bound 2" alongside his now estranged wife, Kim Kardashian. West first met Kardashian when she was working as Brandy's assistant, whom West was videotaping at the time.
I suppose we can't help but hold the music video all the way to the relationship pipeline.
