One of this week's tabloids claims Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's relationship is ending over the actor's close bond with Lady Gaga. The story is completely untrue. Gossip Cop can debunk it.
A headline in the latest issue of Woman's Day Australia reads, "Bradley & Irina: It's Over!" The accompanying article says the supermodel has had enough of her boyfriend's close friendship with his A Star Is Born co-star. An alleged insider tells the magazine, "Gaga and Bradley poured everything into this movie together, and they've become ridiculously close as a result, to the point where they've prioritized each other over their own relationships."
The supposed source goes on to say that Shayk initially "accepted" the actor's rapport with his co-star, "but it's getting to the point where their chemistry is nothing short of humiliating for her." The suspicious tipster adds, "She feels like the third wheel, but Bradley barely notices. Irina's going to have to walk out altogether before he even realizes she's upset."
The tabloids have spent a lot of time trying to create a love triangle between the actor, his girlfriend and his co-star, but there's simply no drama or jealousy taking place. Earlier this month, Cooper and Shayk showed a ton of PDA at the Golden Globes, where they were joined by Gaga and her fiance Christian Carino. A few days later, the model supported her boyfriend at the National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City.
Cooper and Gaga formed a very close friendship while making A Star Is Born, but they're both in committed relationships with other people. More than three months ago, Gossip Cop busted In Touch for falsely claiming Cooper and Shayk were headed for a split over his co-star. The premise wasn't true then and it's no more accurate now. In fact, Shayk has joined her boyfriend at numerous awards shows and ceremonies in support of the film, despite the private couple typically choosing to keep their romance out of the spotlight.
It's worth noting, Woman's Day alleged back in October that Cooper's "flirty friendship" with Gaga was resulting in fights with his girlfriend. That narrative has been disproven in the time since we debunked it. Earlier this week, Gossip Cop shot down a ridiculous story about Gaga stealing Cooper from Shayk. That hasn't happened. The chemistry between the A Star Is Born co-stars is undeniable, but the idea that their friendship is impacting their real-life romances is simply wrong.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
