A separate source told People that "Kanye is doing well. He had a great trip to France with Irina. They will date long-distance, Kanye will continue to be L.A.-based. He has no plans to move to NYC."

The Graduation rapper is in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares four children.

Kanye has remained silent about his split from Kim, but he did pull a fast one and unfollowed his estranged wife and her siblings on Twitter recently.

Speaking of Kim, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is said to be "supportive" of Kanye's new relationship with Irina.

We can't say for sure where this new love is heading, but it looks like the two are taking things seriously!
