According to Us Weekly, the 35-year-old model likes the rapper but isn’t interested in him romantically.
“Kanye and Irina aren’t speaking quite as much anymore,” a source told the outlet. “She wants to remain friends and keep communication open, but she’s pulling back a bit.”
Meanwhile, an insider told Page Six Shayk “doesn’t want to be linked with anyone right now” and “is happy being single.”
Shayk reportedly declined an invitation from West, 44, to attend a Paris couture show with him because she didn’t want dating reports to persist.
“She likes him as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him,” the source added. “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.”
Last month, the pair were snapped getting off a private jet in New Jersey, appearing to be returning following a trip to France, where they stayed at the luxe Villa LA Coste.
A source told Page Six at the time, “Kanye and Irina are seeing each other. It’s casual at the moment, but they are into each other.”
Shayk is the first woman West has been linked to since his split from Kim Kardashian. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed for divorce from the rapper earlier this year.
