Irina Shayk wants to get revenge on Bradley Cooper by dating a guy who’s his total opposite? That’s the ridiculous claim in one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop looked into the situation, and we can set the record straight.
According to OK!, the Russian supermodel “has vowed to get with someone rugged and ultra-masculine” following her split from Cooper. “She’s been out with a few hunky guys already and is planning to fill her calendar with hot dates,” a supposed source tells the magazine. The suspicious insider adds, “It would give her a real kick to parade a bunch of gorgeous, famous men – plus some mysterious ones – in front of Bradley, just to show him she’s not sitting around feeling sorry for herself.” The alleged tipster concludes, “She’s really excited about the idea of playing the field and knows she can get any man she wants.”
The tabloid’s premise is completely fabricated. E! News, a much more reliable source for celebrity scoops than OK!, reported just last week that Shayk is taking “time to heal” following her breakup with Cooper. The trusted entertainment outlet noted, “Irina isn’t dating anyone at the moment. She’s focused on her daughter and spending time with her. She would like to meet someone in the future, but it’s not a priority at the moment.”
Additionally, this idea that the model wants to get revenge on her ex isn’t remotely accurate. Several reputable publications have reported that Cooper and Shayk are on good terms and amicably co-parenting their two-year-old daughter. The New York Post even noted there’s “no drama” between the exes, who are happy to share joint custody of their child.
Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who confirms the magazine’s report is total nonsense. We’re assured that Shayk isn’t on the prowl for a man who’s “the opposite” of her ex. It should be noted, we busted OK! in May for making up a story about Lady Gaga wanting to date a guy who’s similar to Cooper. The outlet has basically reversed the premise and applied it to Shayk instead.
Meanwhile, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid back in March for falsely claiming Cooper and Gaga were getting engaged and house-hunting in Los Angeles. As we’ve stressed countless times, the A Star Is Born co-stars aren’t romantically involved. The outlet’s latest article doesn’t mention Gaga’s name at all. The magazine’s bogus storylines are inconsistent and untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
