Lady Gaga NOT “Crushing On” Bradley Cooper, Despite Report
OK! writes, “Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney called off their engagement in July, but she’s at no loss for attention thanks to Bradley Cooper.” It’s noted that Gaga and Cooper “are in preproduction on his remake of A Star Is Born, in which an ingénue singer falls for, ahem, an established actor.” And clearly the magazine is trying to make a case for life imitating art.
They’ve “been spending time together,” a so-called “source” tells the publication. “She’s desperate for approval right now, and Bradley really provides that.” As an example, it’s said Gaga sometimes “texts him saying she feels sad or lonely, and Bradley gets right back.” The outlet’s alleged tipster adds, “She knows he has a girlfriend. She just needs someone to make her feel good.”
But none of that amounts to Gaga “crushing on” Cooper. What the tabloid actually described is simply a supportive friendship. Still, Gossip Cop isn’t surprised to see OK! trying to suggest something more is brewing.
The gossip magazines love to link co-stars, especially when one is recently single. And just last week, sister publication Star claimed Gaga was giving Cooper unwanted sexual attention. The story, however, was completely unfounded, and this new one also misconstrues their dynamic. Gossip Cop is told that Gaga is grateful for Cooper’s friendship, and nothing more is going on.
