Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are not having a baby together, despite a completely false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus story. The singer isn't pregnant, nor is she in a romance with her A Star Is Born co-star.
According to In Touch, the real reason the actor split from Irina Shayk is because he's expecting a child with Gaga. An alleged insider tells the magazine, "Everyone is saying that Gaga's glowing and hiding a baby bump. Of course, the only person it could be is Bradley's, and we're waiting to see if she'll make an announcement." The supposed source further contends that Shayk is bound to be furious over the situation, adding, "Bradley ending things with her because of Gaga was Irina's worst nightmare."
The questionable tipster goes on to say that Cooper and Gaga's alleged relationship has been "very secret and on the down-low, mainly out of respect to Irina," but they've been quietly meeting up in hotel rooms. "There's an aspect of sneaking around that they get a thrill out of," adds the seemingly phony source. "They're overjoyed about finally being together."
From there, the suspicious insider maintains that the co-stars aren't discussing marriage just yet because Cooper "already has one failed marriage behind him," while Gaga has "called off two engagements." "Tying the knot isn't at the top of their list of priorities right now," says the purported source. "But a baby could solidify their relationship."
Gossip Cop checked in with an individual in the singer's camp, who tells us there's no truth to the tabloid's report. We're assured the co-stars aren't having a baby together and aren't a secret couple either. Less than two weeks ago, People magazine noted that Cooper and Gaga still share an "overwhelming connection" after forming a close bond on the set of A Star Is Born, but there's no romance between the two.
"Entertainment Tonight," another reliable source for celebrity news, reported last week that Cooper isn't making dating a "priority" following his breakup and "is completely focused on his career and his daughter." The outlet noted that the actor still has a "deep friendship" with Gaga, but they're not an item. The romance rumors surrounding the co-stars have always been untrue. And although it's possible it had an impact on the actor's relationship with Shayk, the idea that he dumped the supermodel after impregnating Gaga is false and absurd.
Back in March, Gossip Cop busted In Touch for wrongly reporting that Gaga had pushed Cooper aside and started dating Jeremy Renner. In addition to that article being fabricated, it also contradicts this latest one about her expecting Cooper's baby. Earlier that month, we called out the magazine for falsely claiming Gaga had asked Cooper to marry her. That bogus report also conflicts with this latest story, which says the co-stars are hesitant to walk down the aisle. The reason for all of these inconsistent narratives is that none of them are true.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
