Revealed: What Does Bradley Cooper’s Ex-Wife Think About the Lady Gaga Rumors?

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have likely heard about the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Shallow duet at the 2019 Oscars. The performance was beautiful and romantic, causing even more attention for these two A-list celebrities. If they wanted to quiet the rumors, this performance didn’t help.

While the world swooned over the two performers, some took to social media to talk about the apparent chemistry between them. David Spade took a photo of his TV during the performance and captioned it with “Is there any chance these 2 aren’t f–king?” When Bradley Cooper’s ex-wife, Jennifer Esposito, commented with a simple “Ha,” fans quickly took notice. 

Was Jennifer Esposito trying to tell us something about Bradley Cooper?

Is there any chance these 2 aren’t fucking?

This is not the first time Jennifer Esposito has thrown shade at her ex-husband. The two actors divorced in 2007, after only four months of marriage. According to this US Weekly article, she wrote that Cooper was a “Master Manipulator” and there were many “red flags in their relationship.”

This might have been a veiled attempt to call out past infidelity, as in “Ha, he’s still doing it” or it might simply be that she thought David Spade was funny. He is a comedian, and they’re friends. Unfortunately, there is no way to know what his ex meant with her comment because she did not elaborate further. 

How did Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s unlikely friendship turn into rumors?

Over the past year, Lady Gaga and Cooper’s friendship has gotten closer. This is likely due to the film tour, and festival circuits for their movie A Star Is Born, and their hit song Shallow, for which Gaga won her first Oscar.

Fans started seeing them everywhere and naturally began asking questions. Then Bradley Cooper admitted to loving Lady Gaga. Let’s not forget about the long stares they shared with each other. 

At the height of the rumors, Gaga and her fiance, Christian Carino, decided to call it quits. This caused a hail storm of speculation as to whether the break up had anything to do with Cooper. Fans couldn’t help but point out the pair’s on and off-screen chemistry as a possible reason.

How does Irina Shayk feel about her boyfriend’s relationship with Lady Gaga?

Irina Shayk was the first person standing and cheering after the performance. She was even seen hugging Lady Gaga after winning the Oscar for Best Original Song. Amid rumors of jealousy, she seems to be handling all the attention quite well. 

A source told US Weekly “Irina knows that Bradley and Gaga are artists,” and “They were in character putting on an Oscar performance.” If Shayk is bothered by Cooper’s close friendship with Lady Gaga, she is hiding it well. 

Another big factor to consider is Shayk and Cooper’s daughter Lea. She is the light of both their lives. They are not just another Hollywood couple; they are a family.

We should also remember that Irina Shayk is successful in her own right. She is talented and beautiful on top of being the mother of his child. It’s strange even to think that she might be envious of Gaga when she brings so much to their relationship. 

If Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are secretly an item, they aren’t sharing that with the public. Let’s be the voice of reason here and remind everyone that this is their job. 

Right now, it comes down to two things, the first, Cooper and Gaga are both talented award-winning actors. The second, they put on one heck of a performance and people want more.
