A tabloid claims Bradley Cooper's mom, Gloria Campano, reached out to Irina Shayk to ensure she'll be able to see her two-year-old granddaughter following the couple's split. The story is completely made-up. And Gossip Cop can debunk it.
According to Life & Style, Cooper's mom is working hard to stay on good terms with his ex because she doesn't want to jeopardize her opportunity to spend time with their daughter Lea, "whether or not her son is in town." A supposed source tells the magazine, "Bradley's mom isn't trying to get in the middle of any drama between them. She's staying neutral."
The alleged insider further contends Campano "wants to make sure her grandma privileges don't go away," so she's hoping her relationship with Shayk "remains intact." "Gloria just wants to see her granddaughter, whom she adores, as much as possible," adds the suspicious tipster.
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Cooper, who wasn't able to speak on the record, but assures us the tabloid's story is made-up. The actor's mom isn't concerned about Shayk preventing her from seeing her granddaughter. The magazine's suggestion that a custody battle could be looming is entirely inaccurate.
People magazine, a much more reliable source for celebrity news than Life & Style, reported last month that Cooper and Shayk are on the "same page" when it comes to parenting their daughter. The outlet noted the exes are still "spending time together as a family" for Lea's sake, and both "want her to live a normal life." Cooper's mom simply isn't worried about her "grandma privileges" being revoked.
Unfortunately, we're not surprised by the tabloid's phony story. Last November, Gossip Cop busted Life & Style for falsely claiming Cooper had fallen in love with Lady Gaga. The relationship between the A Star Is Born co-stars has always been platonic, despite the two sharing a close bond. The actor never "fell for" his co-star and hasn't struck up a romance with her following his split from Shayk.
Last month, Gossip Cop called out the magazine for wrongly reporting Cooper and Gaga were secretly dating, but the singer didn't want to go public with their romance yet. The outlet asserted Gaga's friends were warning her that the actor would end up breaking her heart. That narrative was also a complete work of fiction. The publication simply has no insight into what's been transpiring following Cooper and Shayk's breakup.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
