Despite the optics, "Kanye has not given up on Kim," a source tells E! News exclusively.
"She's the only one in his heart and he believes they are soulmates and will end up back together," the insider shares.
Although it seems he's enjoying their company, the insider says, "The other women that he is spending time with are a distraction. He likes the attention that he's getting from them, but that's all it is."
The source added, "Kim is still the only one he truly wants to be with."
As for his latest flame, a third source noted that Ye wasn't "overly affectionate" with Julia during their Jan. 4 outing to see Slave Play on Broadway.
"They touched down and went straight to the theater," the third insider explained, adding that the pair dined at Carbone afterward. "They left Carbone a few hours later and went back to the same hotel."
In recent weeks, Ye has both purchased a house across the street from Kim and publicly vowed to "restore" his marriage to the reality star. "I'm doing everything to be right next to the situation," he said in November of being close to "my wife and my kids."
In the meantime, Kim has been enjoying a vacation of her own with her new love. She and comedian Pete Davidson, who struck up a relationship after she hosted Saturday Night Live in October, took to the Bahamas for a post-New Year's getaway. Their relationship is said to be getting "very serious," according to a separate insider.
E! News has reached out to Ye's rep for comment. See all the pics of him and Julia at Slave Play below.
