Back in October, word started spreading that Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend since 2015, Irina Shayk, was on (forgive me, but I must) shayk-y ground. Then awards season started up, and we started caring less about that, and more about whether Bradley Cooper was diving into Lady Gaga’s shallow. Lady Gaga pretty much killed that rumor, so now we’re back to our original scheduled Bradley Cooper gossip programming, which is that things aren’t great with Irina.
Page Six, who first reported the news back in October as well, reports that a source has recently told them that Bradley and Irina’s relationship is “hanging by a thread.” The source adds that “things are not good” and that “neither one is happy.” Bradley and Irina share a 2-year-old daughter Lea, and the source says that they’re basically just staying together for the sake of their kid at this point in an attempt to make it work.
Back in October, it was rumored that things weren’t great because Bradley was a spiritual non-drinker, and Irina wanted to party all the time.
There is a reason why we’re hearing about the alleged trouble in B-Coop paradise now after so many months of relative silence. A source says that they couldn’t break up while Bradley was doing promotion for A Star is Born. However, now that that’s all over, the source speculates: “Who knows what will happen now?” Excuse me, but there was a chance that Bradley and Irina could have called it quits in the middle of the whole “Are Bradley and Gaga boning?” frenzy, and they didn’t take it? Honestly, maybe Bradley isn’t nearly as good a director as he thinks he is. A great director knows when to go for the maximum amount of drama and tension, on or off camera.
