Will Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga Continue Being Friends Despite Romance Rumors Fueling His Recent Split?
Not because she asked to be, but mainly because of her close friendship with her former co-star.
Once A Star Is Born was released this past summer, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have been at the center of romance rumors, which was revealed played a part in his recent split from Shayk.
Though their close bond caused Cooper’s relationship to come to an end, does that mean he no longer has an interest in continuing to be friends with Gaga?
Cooper and Gaga’s on-screen romance contributed to his split
Many of us still can’t believe that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are officially over after four years of dating.
Though the former couple was adamant on keeping their relationship private, their romance sadly saw its final days.
Many sources claimed that Cooper and Shayk weren’t happy for a while and they were only staying together for the sake of their two-year-old daughter.
After trying to make their relationship work but not seeing any success, the couple decided it would be best if they went their separate ways.
Though being unhappy in their relationship was one of the main reasons why Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk split, it has been speculated that A Star Is Born also played a part.
The box-office hit was a major success for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s careers and many fans hoped that their on-screen romance would translate to real-life.
With so many rumors surrounding a possible romance between Cooper and Gaga, of course, Irina Shayk had a problem with it.
Recent reports reveal that Shayk and Cooper’s relationship was never the same once A Star Is Born was released.
With Bradley Cooper filming, constantly promoting the movie, and attending events with Lady Gaga, the couple began drifting apart.
“Bradley was emotionally absent during the long time filming A Star Is Born,” an entertainment source tells PEOPLE. “They tried to save the relationship but it had changed.”
Bradley Cooper has a strong connection with Lady Gaga
Though their on-screen romance played a large part in his relationship coming to an end, Bradley Cooper is not looking to end his friendship with Lady Gaga anytime soon.
Seeing as though it has been a while since they’ve been in contact, Cooper still thinks highly of his co-star and can’t deny the connection they have.
Though Gaga and Cooper have established a close bond, there is a slim chance they will one day turn their friendship into something more.
“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, and it’s difficult to speculate at this sensitive time,” a source revealed to PEOPLE.
“Overwhelming connection” could be referring to a possible romance but it is still too early to really be sure.
With Cooper recently ending things with Shayk and Gaga calling off her engagement a few months ago, the actors are most likely staying single for a while.
As for their friendship, we can assume Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are going to maintain their close bond and hopefully lean on each other to heal from their shattered relationships.
