From the moment Bradley Cooper and longtime girlfriend Irina Shayk’s split was announced, there have been many whispers as to what might have caused the relationship’s demise.
Could his on-screen love Lady Gaga have played any sort of a role in their break-up?
Well, perhaps she did.
“Bradley (Cooper) was emotionally absent during the long time filming A Star Is Born,” a source told People magazine in a recent interview. “They tried to save the relationship but it had changed.”
What had to make matters worse was the fact that the whole world essentially was wondering if Cooper and Lady Gaga’s on-screen chemistry could have overflowed into their personal life.
“The rumors about Bradley and Gaga having a love affair didn’t help especially with his constant travels [promoting the film],” the source also told People . “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.”
Whatever the reason behind the break-up, one thing is for certain. Cooper deserves to find the love of his life, whoever that might be.
Yet, knowing the very private actor, fans just might be the last to know.
