A tabloid report claiming Bradley Cooper wants Irina Shayk to give up modeling is completely false. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus premise. It’s simply not true.

A headline in the latest issue of Star reads, “A Model Is Born! Shayk Won’t Shake Off Work.” According to the magazine’s so-called “insider,” “Bradley suggested Irina cut down on her sexier photo gigs,” but his girlfriend snapped back, “This is my job. I don’t tell you how to act and direct.”

The outlet never bothers to mention why Cooper supposedly wants his girlfriend to stop working. It’s always a red flag when a tabloid’s story lacks any type of detail. There’s also no reason to believe that the actor isn’t supportive of Shayk’s career, or that he would try to stand in the way of his girlfriend making a living.

Still, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Cooper, who tells us on the condition of anonymity that there’s no truth to the magazine’s article. Meanwhile, if the outlet is trying to suggest there are problems between the actor and his girlfriend, that’s certainly not the case. The happy couple has been spotted several times this week taking strolls with their 18-month-old daughter in New York City. A photo from one of Cooper and Shayk’s outings shows the pair laughing as she wraps her arm around him.

It’s worth noting, this isn’t the first time Star has made up a bogus story about work coming between the couple. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely claiming that Cooper was putting more focus on his movie A Star Is Born than he was on his family. The tabloid alleged that Shayk was upset because the actor was more interested in making his movie than taking care of their baby daughter.

In reality, the actor was able to balance work and family while directing and acting in A Star Is Born. In fact, Cooper said in a recent NPR interview that having a child has had a positive impact on his career and his approach to work. The actor also said in the interview, “The thing I want my daughter to have — I just always want her to feel loved.” Those aren’t the words of a man who’s more concerned with his career than his child. This latest article about Cooper telling Shayk to give up modeling is similarly untrue.
