Jennifer Aniston and Lady Gaga are not fighting over Bradley Cooper, despite a false tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. We've learned it's completely made-up.
According to NW, Gaga thought she would finally have her A Star Is Born co-star "all to herself" following his recent split from Irina Shayk, but now she faces "another massive hurdle" from Aniston. An alleged insider tells the magazine that Cooper has been "pouring out his heart" to the actress, who he worked with on the 2009 movie He's Just Not That Into You.
The supposed source further contends there's "a real spark" between Aniston and Cooper, who "have become especially close" in recent weeks and the actress "has high hopes that it could be the start of something serious between them." The anonymous tipster goes on to say that Gaga has "known for months that Bradley and Irina were going through problems, but she has tried to keep her distance because she doesn't want to be a relationship wrecker."
Gaga supposedly "avoided dating anybody else" following her February split from ex-fiance Christian Carino, says the "source," adding that she "assumed Bradley would come running to her once he dumped Irina." The unnamed tipster also says Gaga is shocked by Cooper "getting cozy with Jen - and she is furious that she's just waltzed in and tried to steal him right from under her nose."
The suspicious insider further maintains that Aniston and Cooper have been going on secret dates in Los Angeles and chatting a lot on the phone, and the actress "has definitely been putting the smile back on his face." But Gaga "won't take it lying down," says the questionable source. "She is devastated that Jen is suddenly her rival for Bradley's affections - and things could get pretty ugly if Jen doesn't back off."
The tabloid's storyline, which is based on claims from an unidentified tipster, is total fiction. Despite what the magazine's so-called "insider" says, Gossip Cop reached out to Aniston's spokesperson, who tells us on the record it's "complete nonsense." The actress isn't developing a romance with Cooper, nor is she in any competition with Gaga over the actor. The unreliable outlet is simply attempting to create an imaginary love triangle.
Gossip Cop has also reached out to a rep for Gaga, but there's no indication that she's been pursuing her co-star in the wake of his breakup. It should be noted, NW is the same tabloid we busted in April for falsely claiming Gaga was dating Jeremy Renner to make Cooper jealous. This latest article now says the singer has "avoided" dating in the hopes her co-star "would come running."
As for Aniston, the magazine wrongly reported last year that the actress was dating Leonardo DiCaprio after being introduced to him by Brad Pitt. Shortly before that bogus scenario, Gossip Cop busted the outlet for falsely claiming Aniston and Pitt were getting married in Paris. The unreliable publication comes up with crazy narratives on a whim. This latest one involving Aniston and Gaga battling over Cooper is another example.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
