Kanye West sports a ski mask while attending the BIG3 basketball tournament in Las Vegas


Kanye West was seen enjoying himself at the second week of the BIG3 basketball tournament that was held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The hitmaker, 44, appeared to be having a good time as he was seen chatting it up with fellow rapper Ice Cube while they watched the game from the sidelines.

West’s outing comes not long after it was revealed that he and model Irina Shayk are ‘still very much dating’ despite recent reports suggesting that their relationship had hit the skids.

The Stronger rapper also wore a pair of leather pants that paired well with his outerwear as he enjoyed the games.

Kanye contrasted the predominant shade of his outfit with a pair of light yellow-brown high-top boots.

He notably wore a ski mask that obscured the majority of his face for the duration of the event.

The It Was a Good Day rapper, 52, kept it much more casual while watching the games, as he wore a graphic-printed t-shirt and a loose-fitting pair of jeans, as well as a black baseball cap.

Although West appeared to be preoccupied with the event, his appearance came not long after a source told People that he and model Irina Shayk were still in a relationship. 

The insider also expressed that the model, 35, did not turn down the rapper’s request for her to accompany him to France, and remarked that he was there to attend a friend’s event.

Specifically, the source noted that the rumors were ‘not true. Kanye went to Paris for the Balenciaga show to support Demna [Gvasalia]. He was in and out, only there for 3 hours.’  

The insider also briefly spoke about the supermodel’s ire regarding the public perception of her burgeoning relationship with the producer.

They bluntly stated: ‘Irina is so upset at the lies about her and Kanye.’

The two were first romantically linked earlier this year when celebrity gossip Instagram account @deuxmoi reported that the two had secretly begun dating.

West was previously married to Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares daughters North and Chicago, aged eight and three, as well as sons Saint and Psalm, aged five and two.

The former couple initially tied the knot in 2014 and went strong for several years before the 41-year-old reality television personality filed for divorce this past February.

The Bound 2 rapper was also previously linked to designer Alexis Phifer and model Amber Rose in the past.

Following his split from Kardashian, West and Shayk remained low-key about their romance for several months before TMZ reported that they had taken a romantic trip to France in June.

Both the rapper’s ex-wife and the model’s former partner, Bradley Cooper, are said to be supportive of the pair’s blossoming romance.

However, Page Six reported that the fashion industry figure was not looking to make things official with the performer earlier this month.

An insider told the media outlet that Shayk ‘likes [West] as a friend, but doesn’t want a relationship with him.’

Another source expressed that the supermodel ‘doesn’t want to be linked with anyone right now…She is happy being single.’ 

However, People noted that the two were still an item and that they had recently spent the Fourth of July weekend together in San Francisco.

Neither West nor Shayk have publicly commented on the rumors surrounding their connection as of yet.
