Irina Shayk is NOT upset over Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s on-screen chemistry, despite a report wrongly speculating a “romance” is brewing between the co-stars. Gossip Cop can debunk the claim.

A headline in this week’s National Enquirer announces, “A Bradley-Gaga Romance Is Born!” According to the supermarket tabloid, the two are “steaming up the set together” as they work on the A Star is Born remake, which Cooper is also directing. The magazine writes that “on-set spies say their ‘sizzling chemistry’ is more scorching than the script,” and points out that they’ve “been all over SoCal for months” together, “even grocery shopping like a married couple!”

But, alleges the outlet, “one person who isn’t thrilled with their love-fest is Bradley’s on-off squeeze.” It’s said the couple “has been on rocky ground since a public spat at the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London.” And now a so-called “pal” claims to the publication, “Irina is not a fool. She knows when two people have chemistry. She just hopes that he remembers where his loyalty lies — and that he should be with her.”

The only fool here is the clueless National Enquirer, which very obviously fabricated this story. The tabloid can’t possibly have “on-set spies” revealing how Gaga and Cooper are “steaming up the set together” as production on the movie isn’t slated to begin until early next year. And unlike the gossip magazine, Shayk is well aware that what her boyfriend and the singer-actress will be doing is pretend.

She is not upset about Cooper and Gaga having on-screen compatibility, just as she’s not concerned about his chemistry with other film partners. It’s just a necessary component of making quality movies. But clearly, the National Enquirer doesn’t see truth-telling as a necessary part of its own job.
