The Shocking Reason Why Irina Shayk Split from Bradley Cooper
Remember when the tabloids and rumor channels were trying to tell us that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s relationship was in trouble due to the actor’s increasing closeness with co-star, Lady Gaga?
Well, they weren’t too far from the truth because the couple has officially split after four years of togetherness. Bradley and Irina, who welcomed their daughter in 2017, had been working through personal issues for quite some time now, but despite their efforts, the two failed to save their relationship.
The estranged couple will continue to be co-parents after the unfortunate breakup and are currently ironing out a custody plan for their daughter.
What could be their reason behind their separation? Does it have something to do with Cooper’s public display of affection for Lady Gaga during the promotion of A Star is Born? Let’s uncover the real reason behind their sudden breakup.
The Budding Romance
Cooper and Shayk started dating sometime in April 2015, a couple of months after he broke up with Suki Waterhouse. The dating rumors began circulating when Cooper and Shayk were spotted together at Finding Neverland’s Broadway production. A month after, they confirmed their relationship with an intimate kiss in London.
From there on, their relationship grew stronger and the two graced the Paris Fashion Week’s red carpet in March 2016 bearing the sweetest surprise. While Cooper and Shayk were looking gorgeous as ever, fans couldn’t help but notice the bump on Irina’s belly
The Immense Support
The couple kept Shayk’s pregnancy under wraps until she gave birth to their daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, in 2017. Despite being a family, the couple didn’t reveal any plans to tie the knot but their relationship remains steadfast over the years.
Cooper and Shayk also attended the Oscars together last year and the beautiful model showed support for her baby daddy after his heartfelt rendition of Shallow with Lady Gaga.
The performance created a buzz in the media as fans began to speculate that there was something more serious between Gaga and Cooper than just friendship.
But the two were quick to deny the rumors, saying that they were only putting up an act to promote their film. If not for their on-screen loveteam, what could be the reason behind Cooper and Shayk’s separation?
The breakup rumors started when Shayk and her daughter were spotted on a solo outing around Brentwood, California earlier this month. The mother-daughter duo visited a local park while eating ice cream but there was no sign of Cooper.
While the two have been tight-lipped about their romance, sources close to them reveal that their relationship has been on the rocks for many months now.
According to sources, Cooper and Shayk no longer feel “happy” with each other. They both fell out of love while Cooper was busy filming his directorial project and couldn’t devote enough time to his family. So they decided to put each other out of their misery by cutting their ailing relationship short.
The New Hope
While the couple’s fans still mourn their breakup, they wish for both parties to heal in time and maintain a civil relationship for their daughter’s sake. They also hope they’ll find new love again, especially for Cooper. Most A Star is Born fans are still rooting for him to be with Lady Gaga someday.
