Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk did not split up nor does the model have a “new man,” despite a slew of inaccurate reports. Gossip Cop can correct this claim. We’re told it’s “completely untrue.”
According to RadarOnline, Cooper and the model broke up “following a series of explosive fights and one too many disagreements with Cooper’s mom.” The webloid, which foolishly relied on reporting from The Sun without fact-checking it, quotes a so-called “insider” saying, “Things went south over the Christmas period” between Shayk and Cooper, with the two often having “arguments” about the actor’s mom. Additionally, claim the misguided outlets, after Shayk and Cooper’s mom “began to butt heads,” the actor’s mother “didn’t want” the strong-willed, Russian model for her son.
And while the outlet says Shayk was “devastated” by the breakup, it alleges, “She has already moved on with another man, a British model by the name of Stephen James.” “Irina always seems to pick the wrong men so she’s taking it slowly with Stephen but the fact they were friends first helps a lot,” says a so-called “source.”
There’s one teensy-weensy problem with this story: Cooper and Shayk have not split up at all nor does she have a “new man.” A source close to Cooper tells Gossip Cop that tales about a breakup and his girlfriend and mother fighting are “completely untrue.” In fact, we’re told the model is tight with Cooper’s mom.
Oh, and there’s one other problem as well with the webloid’s story: Cooper and Shayk were spotted earlier this week walking hand-in-hand in New York. Of course, Gossip Cop is not entirely surprised that RadarOnline is wrong about Cooper and Shayk splitting up. In 2013, we exclusively busted the site when it fabricated a tale about Taylor Swift “desperately” pursuing Cooper in a effort to date him. Not only did Gossip Cop slam the story as false, but Cooper himself also told Howard Stern a couple of years later that the outlet’s report was “horse[expletive].”
