Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are one of those couples that lays pretty low and live a relatively private life. Last week, we got a Bradley and Irina sighting when they were photographed taking their daughter Lea out for a walk, and they appeared to be serving some happy family realness. But as Page Six reports, Bradley and Irina are reportedly “miserable,” together. If you really want to know what a miserable Bradley and Irina might look, here – just take a second look at Bradley and Irina bringing ten tons of over-it grumpiness at Wimbledon two years ago.
So why are they miserable? Is it because Irina woke up one morning, rolled over, saw Bradley in an old ripped crew shirt from Alias, snoring and drooling into his pillow and thought: “Damn, I guess you do have moments of unfuckability.” According to a source that spoke with Page Six, it’s because – to paraphrase Eddie Murphy – Bradley’s girl likes to party all the time. And Bradley doesn’t. The source says:
“They are miserable together. They have been for months. He doesn’t drink and is into spirituality. She wants to go out. She went to Ibiza by her herself for a party that [Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott] threw.”
This may be new news to you and I, but apparently it’s been common knowledge for a while in the Russian modeling community (Irina is from Yemanzhelinsk, Russia). I desperately want to believe this kind of gossip was shared while sipping low-calorie borsch broth through a straw and making “Can you believe it?” eyes at each other.
Also adding to the rumors that there’s trouble in paradise is a New York source that saw Bradley and Irina at dinner this week. The source says neither looked happy and were barely speaking to each other, with Irina spending the second half of her mean looking off to the side. Things must have lightened up between them, as they were seen by another source looking “cozy and happy” yesterday afternoon. And there’s a source that’s close to Bradley and Irina that tells Page Six that any talk of them not being able to stand each other’s guts is “untrue.”
One of the reasons Bradley might be mostly frowns these days is the press he’s doing for A Star Is Born. You’d think he’d be twirling in the streets with all the Oscar buzz it’s getting and all the money it’s making, but no. One source tells Page Six that Bradley hates doing press, and he really didn’t love the recent profile done on him by The New York Times. So he’s sulking about that, apparently.
What no one is saying is whether Bradley and Irina are so miserable that they’re thinking of calling the time of death on their 3-year relationship. For now, it just sounds like each is content to deliver middle-fingers while safely obscured behind an open fridge door. But if the rumor about Irina partying all the time while Bradley meditates and gets spiritual is true, then she should be happy she’s partying alone. Bradley kind of seems like a serious known-it-all, and you know if he tagged along, he’d spend the whole time reminding everyone, “You know, technically it’s pronounced Ee-BEE-tha.”
