When Twitter learned that Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend Irina Shayk broke up, the mourning period was brief (possibly nonexistent). Almost immediately, memes started popping up predicting a Cooper-Lady Gaga romance.
The pair, who starred together in A Star Is Born, sparked romance rumors while shooting the movie, but when they performed “Shallow” together onstage at the Oscars in February, the spark turned into a bonfire. Many in the audience and following on social media predicted Cooper and Shayk’s imminent demise.
The pair dated for four years and share Lea De Seine, 2. According to reports, they’d been drifting apart for months before their split became public.
“Irina is not focused on the celebrity part, or on the fame — she just wants to protect her family,” a source tells People of the supermodel. “Bradley is very into work and is trying to take advantage of every career opportunity right now.”
After his Oscar-winning directorial debut for A Star Is Born, Cooper, 44, is preparing to direct, co-write and star in a biopic about the legendary composer Leonard Bernstein. Shayk, 33, is keeping busy herself, flying around the world to model. In March, she covered Vogue Japan; in June, she covered Elle and Vogue Hong Kong.
