Do Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk really “spend a lot of time apart” because they think the distance will help their relationship? That’s the case according to one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop, however, can exclusively set the record straight.

“Bradley & Irina’s Time-Out Strategy,” reads a headline in the latest issue of OK! The accompanying article says that the couple of nearly three years take frequent breaks from each other as an unconventional method of strengthening their bond. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “She doesn’t get on his case about every little thing and gives him space. She’s not clingy.”

The outlet’s questionable insider goes on to say that the model prefers spending time alone with their 9-month-old daughter, which works out well because he’s often away shooting films. “There are time they’ll go weeks without seeing each other, and they seem to take pride in it,” adds the suspicious source. “It’s like a badge of honor that they’re so independent.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the magazine’s account of the couple’s relationship is entirely inaccurate. Although Cooper sometimes has to travel for work, the outlet’s assertion that he enjoys being away from his girlfriend and baby daughter isn’t remotely true. Yes, it’s that said distance make the heart grow fonder, but the tabloid’s take on the couple’s dynamic is completely wrong.

It should also be noted, a recent article indicated that Cooper and Shayk “prioritize their well-deserved alone time” and are even considering having another baby this year. The actor and supermodel may have busy work schedules, but they make plenty of time for their family. More importantly, the two aren’t going out of their way to be apart.
