Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have not "fell for each other," despite a sensationalized report. The cover of one of this week's tabloids is trying to make it seem as if there's a romance between the A Star Is Born co-stars. The actor and singer have a strong bond, but their relationship is completely platonic.
The co-stars have consistently raved about each other while promoting their new movie, which inspired Life & Style to come up with a false narrative surrounding their friendship. The magazine contends that their respective partners, supermodel Irina Shayk and talent agent Christian Carino, are both disturbed by the chemistry between the co-stars.
A supposed source tells the magazine, "It's pretty insane how much love they have for each other, and they don't hide it. I don't know how Irina and Christian can stand it." The alleged insider adds, "Irina has been miserable for months. She hates that Bradley doesn't hide the fact that he fell in love with Gaga. And Christian isn't dealing with it much better. He is super jealous."
The outlet goes on to say that the situation will get more tense as both Cooper and Gaga are expecting to spend awards season together. "Irina is dreading it," says the questionable tipster. "She'll be forced to see this lovefest play out once again. She's even threatened to skip awards ceremonies, telling Bradley to take his mother instead because she doesn't have a good poker face and everyone will see her true feelings."
Here's what's true about the tabloid's story: Cooper and Gaga love each other as friends and have a lot of mutual admiration and respect for one another. Here's what's false: everything else. The actor and singer's significant others aren't put off by their strong connection.
As Gossip Cop has noted, Cooper and Shayk were spotted looking cozy together in New York City several times over the past month. One outlet even noted that Cooper and Shayk looked "completely smitten" while taking a stroll with their baby daughter. Additionally, Shayk said in an interview with "Extra" last month that she's proud of her boyfriend and the success he's having with A Star Is Born.
Meanwhile, Gaga thanked her fiance during an emotional speech at Elle's 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration last month. People magazine, a much more reliable celebrity news outlet than Life & Style, noted that Carino "is a good, grounding force and understands her career."
It should be noted, Cooper and Gaga both keep their respective romances very private. If Shayk doesn't join her boyfriend on the red carpet during awards season, which is entirely possible, it's not because she doesn't support him. The actor explained in an interview on "The Howard Stern Show" that the two rarely flaunt their romance at Hollywood events because they don't want the media scrutinizing their relationship.
It's very evident there's no off-screen romance between the A Star Is Born co-stars. As for their real-life relationships, both are going strong. Cooper and Gaga formed a close friendship on the set of their film, but the tabloid is trying to create a phony soap opera out of it.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
