Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper and Russian supermodel Irina Shayk have called it quits after four years of relationship, multiple media outlets reported, citing unnamed sources.
“They’ve spent time apart to test the waters and see if they are better off. They have a lot invested and it’s very difficult to completely walk away from. They are trying out different arrangements and trying to find their way. They love their little girl dearly and that’s not going to change no matter what”, E!News quoted an insider as saying.
The couple has been the subject of breakup rumours for several months now, with speculation reaching a fever pitch during the Oscars, as many alleged that Cooper was having an affair with his A Star is Born co-star, Lady Gaga.
The “Bad Romance” singer even felt compelled to shut down those rumours on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and stressed that people saw their chemistry because that’s what the duo wanted to show them in the movie – a true love story.
Even though US Weekly has clarified that the alleged Cooper-Shayk splitsville has nothing to do with the “Shallow” singer, it didn’t take users long to flood social media with a bunch of fine Gaga memes:

Are these waters “shallow?”
Shayk and Cooper, who share a two-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine, have not commented on the speculation so far, but they have always tried to stay under the radar, keeping a relatively low profile and rarely attending red carpets together.
However, Shayk showed much support for her partner, as Cooper had a big year in 2018 with the release of his movie A Star is Born, which was nominated for eight Academy Awards.
