Is Bradley Cooper's relationship with Irina Shayk in trouble because she was recently spotted walking a red carpet without an emerald ring she often wears? That's the premise behind a new tabloid report. While a magazine is trying to stir up controversy, Cooper and Shayk appear to remain happy together.
According to Life & Style, the couple's "wedding's off." What's its proof? The outlet points out Shayk did not have on her emerald ring when she walked the red carpet before Germany's GQ "Men Of The Year" awards in Berlin on November 8.
The publication then trots out a so-called "source close to the couple" who asserts, "There have been a lot of whispers about Bradley and Irina's relationship ever since A Star Is Born came out." The same supposed "source close to the couple" further contends, without adding any particular insight, "The fact that Irina ditched her ring at the event raised a lot of eyebrows."
It bears mentioning that if the magazine truly had a "source close to the couple," he or she would have details about when the alleged wedding was slated for before being called "off." That individual would also have inside knowledge about their relationship, and not have to vaguely remark about how "there have been a lot of whispers" or how her temporarily ringless hand "raised a lot of eyebrows." Those type of meaningless comments seem to sometimes perhaps come from tabloid writers looking for an angle, where none exists.
To muddy the waters even more, the outlet notes how ever since Cooper and Lady Gaga worked on A Star Is Born, there have been "rumors of romance" between the two stars. What the tabloid neglects to acknowledge is that those "rumors" were stoked by none other than Life & Style, which published a cover story three weeks ago that untruthfully maintained Cooper and Lady Gaga "fell for each other" while filming A Star Is Born. It's also the same magazine Gossip Cop busted more that two years ago when it first falsely floated that Cooper and Shayk were going to split over Lady Gaga because the model couldn't handle him working with the singer.
Since those who work with Cooper and Shayk are extremely tight-lipped about their romance, sometimes one has to turn to their own interactions with one another for a little guidance. Just days after Life & Style printed its story, Cooper and Shayk were spotted having a fun beach day with their daughter Lea in Santa Monica. And hours before that, Cooper and a ringless Shayk were all smiles after sharing a Russian Mother's Day lunch with his Hangover co-star Zach Galifianakis.
Additionally, there have been numerous other times in which the two appeared in love and the model wasn't sporting that emerald ring, including when Cooper and Shayk were photographed kissing in Paris while strolling with their daughter a few months ago. If the tabloid's article doesn't seem to ring true, it's because it isn't. Gossip Cop has reached out to reps for comments.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
