The actor and model have been together for four years and have a daughter, Lea De Seine. They reportedly were spending time apart for a while before their ultimate breakup.

Bradley and Irina have been unhappy in their relationship for some time and have tried to make it work,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “They both want the best for their daughter, but seem to be coming to terms with the fact that staying together might not be for the best.”

They were even talking about breaking up around A Star Is Born’s release. “Their troubles have been going on for quite some time and they even considered splitting during the release of the movie,” a source claimed. “They talked things through a great deal and seemed to hold off and keep up appearances for the time being. It was recommended they delay a split at what seemed to be the peak of his career because the negative attention would take away from the excitement of the release.”

The movie stars played lovers on the big screen. Their performance was so convincing that it sparked rumors that they were having an affair.

She addressed these rumors on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “First of all, social media quite frankly is the toilet of the internet and what it has done to pop culture is abysmal,” the pop star said. “And people saw love, and guess what, that’s what we wanted you to see. This is a love song, the movie is a love story.”

However, she did recognize that they had chemistry. Cooper said their connection will last a lifetime, according to People. “I made a friend for life. As great as this movie was, the thing that I think I’ll take away forever is the relationship I have with her because she is an incredible person. I’m very lucky to have worked with her.”

A source said the rumors didn’t help Cooper’s situation

Many fans might wonder if Lady Gaga was somehow involved with Cooper’s breakup. An unknown source talked to People about their relationship now.

He has a huge and overwhelming connection to Gaga but whether it becomes a real love story in their lives for all the world to see is premature,” the source said. The insider talked about the status of his relationship back when there were affair rumors.

“The rumors about Bradley and Gaga having a love affair didn’t help especially with his constant travels [promoting the film],” the source said. Another source said they “spent a lot of time apart.”

If the sources are right then Cooper and Shayk’s relationship was already going downhill before the rumors really spiraled. However, the rumors didn’t help either.
