Bradley Cooper & Irina Shayk have broken up, she moved out of his house

Irina Shayk, Bradley Cooper at arrivals...

This week has bizarrely been about the slow-burning breakup of Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk. Before this week, we could go months without hearing anything about Irina and Bradley, and then suddenly this week there were multiple exclusives in Page Six, E!, Us Weekly and The Sun about how their relationship was completely on the rocks and they were hanging on by a thread. Well, this week has been brutal for them, I guess? The Sun reported last night that Irina has moved out of the Pacific Palisades home she shared with Bradley (it was his home, he owns it). A source told The Sun: “Things are cooling off between Bradley and Irina in a big way. They haven’t been good for a few months and Irina decided it would be best if she moved into her own place. It’s not looking like there’s much long left for the two of them together.” And then after that, People Magazine confirmed that the split was really here:

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have split after four years of dating, PEOPLE confirms. Cooper, 44, and Shayk, 33, have officially decided to end their relationship and are amicably working out how to share custody of their daughter Lea De Seine, who they welcomed in March 2017, an insider tells PEOPLE.

Representatives for the former couple did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. The Oscar-nominated actor and the supermodel began dating in the spring of 2015.

[From People]

As I’ve said in my previous coverage, I already know that I’m Team Shayk. She seems cool, and I don’t buy that she was some impossible diva who hated Bradley’s quiet lifestyle or whatever. I think it was more a case of… she fell in love, had a baby, hoped for the best, hoped to eventually marry Bradley, but she discovered that he’s really just all about himself. I hope she has a good support system and I hope she and Lea are safe and happy.

    • SM says:

      Exactly. I always found them to be such an odd couple. And not in a way of “opposites attract” but more like two people who have nothing to talk about. And I think you are spot on here, we may find out in the end thay she is way more interesting than him. Bradley equals blunt to me.

      • TIFFANY says:

        @SM. You can say that about anyone Cooper has dated since his marriage ended.

        All of them the 1st thing that comes out of my mouth is, ‘Really??? Them?’.

    • Bella Bella says:

      They’ve been living apart for months! Why is this being reported like this was a real relationship. C’mon.

      • Melanie says:

        Bella Bella: It certainly seems like it was. I think there actually are fake and contractual relationships in Hollywood and then there are those that just play up their real relationship with staged photos. I’m thinking these two fall into the latter category. Bradley and Irina engaged in clearly staged photos over the last few years, but I don’t believe that there was contract, and certainly not one that would include a kid. I just don’t believe that he would choose to be tied to her forever because of a kid.

      • xdanix says:

        @Bella Bella No, they haven’t been living apart for months. They’ve travelled back and forth from LA and New York, together, up until maybe the last month or so. The photographs of her leaving for the airport were taken in the house they’ve shared in LA but which, as Kaiser says, was his house for years before he got together with her. He’s owned it for like a decade or something. If they were living apart for that long I certainly don’t think she’d still be in his house this whole time.

      • Bella Bella says:

        @xdanix, She was living down the street from him in LA. Don’t believe the hype.

      • Melanie says:

        Bella Bella: So, you actually think they had a contract? He isn’t exactly coming out looking that great after the breakup, so it’s hard to believe that would be apart of any contract.

    • BeckySue says:

      Mamma’s boys never treat women well. Their mothers train them to believe that they (the son) are better than everyone else, especially their wives or girlfriends. Mamma’s boys are arrogant, narcissistic and quite often emotionally abusive, if not worse.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        I agree. I mean it’s nice to see him taking his mother to the awards ceremonies but it still seems a bit spooky in a Norman Bates kind of way.

      • MariaS says:

        I couldn’t agree more. Was married to one for 10 years and not only was he a total narcissist, but every visit from Mommy (which he still calls her and he’s now 50) was a master class in passive aggressive behavior on her part. The divorce was a relief.

  2. Alissa says:

    I’m not on any team. I think they were an odd couple from the start and to be honest I never really bought that they were in love or even liked each other all that much.

    • Jegede says:

      ☝☝☝👍👍

    • Maureen says:

      You should look up their early relationship pap shots *fans self.* They were very into each other and she is no actress.

      • Melanie says:

        Maureen: Are you for real or being sarcastic? I’m one of those people who never saw any actual chemistry between them.

      • Alissa says:

        Yeah…I’m really not seeing it, still.

      • Who is Justice Beaver? says:

        Maureen, I remember those early pap shots too! At the time I remember thinking, they look super hot and heavy.

    • Minxx says:

      Exactly. She was bearding for Ronaldo before, right?

    • Melanie says:

      Alissa: I’ve never been able to imagine them having a conversation. I’ve also never gotten a lust vibe from them either, as in they never talked but just had sex. They just always looked uncomfortable with each other.

  3. Seraphina says:

    Holy wow, she looks AMAZING in that dress. And that dress looks amazing in her. Wow.

    I agree that BC is all about himself. That is something I could see about him. Plus, she’s been low key and he’s the one who has most of the drama (in the over all span of years being in the media). But I’m not well read on either of them.

  4. Louise says:

    He has a reputation as a narcissist so I imagine he would be hard to live with. I love the dramatic photo over at DM of her walking out of his house with a suitcase and getting into a limo. It was so strategically perfect.

  5. RoyalBlue says:

    I am team no one. These are two adults who went into this eyes wide open. my feeling about the breakup is no surprise and meh.

    • Div says:

      I don’t care for him at all, but she’s obviously been calling the paps non stop lately (I look at Daily Fail for royal photos, don’t judge, and she is ALWAYS in it as of late in pretty obvious pap set ups)….so I can buy that he’s a huge jerk but I don’t necessarily buy she was happy to be low key and stay home and think there may be a grain of truth in that she wanted to go out more. Or…more likely (and I usually hate speculating, so I’m a hypocrite) the beard contract ran out.

      Regardless, I’m team Irina and people also need to leave poor Gaga out of this sh*t. Apparently people are spamming Gaga’s instagram with a lot of vile comments.

      • Wendy says:

        I had to go look and agreed, obvious pap stroll with coordinating luggage to the look. Anytime I’ve moved from a mans home it was usually with a messy bun, no bra and mascara raccoon eyes, but I’m classy that way.

      • Jadedone says:

        @ wendy “but I’m classy that way” thanks for the laugh lol

      • Agirlandherdog says:

        I don’t really know much (or anything) about her, but it’s probably safe to say he’s been the primary breadwinner for the time they’ve been together. Has she been working steadily since their daughter was born? Regardless, her agent probably told her she needs to get her name back out there, and having the paps cover your breakup certainly does that.

      • Still_Sarah says:

        @ Wendy. We understand, dear. We’ve all done it.

      • Mi says:

        @Agirlandherdog This year alone she has 4 Vogue covers and campaigns for Versace, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Gaultier and Burberry.

    • xdanix says:

      @Wendy she wasn’t moving out, she was going to catch a flight, (the DM followed her to the airport.) that’s all. Hence the one suitcase. She clearly hasn’t moved out (yet, at least) because that house she was photographed leaving was Bradley’s house.

  6. What Fresh Hell says:

    I’m sure it’s because he’s pining for Lady Gaga and has nothing at all to do with the non-renewal of a bearding contract.

    • Moses says:

      I have no opinion on whether he’s gay or not, that’s his business, but you could tell she was only hanging on through awards season.

    • Tilly says:

      No kidding, Enty and BlindGossip called this at the beginning of awards season.

    • Tigerlily says:

      Exactly. I’m reading this and wondering why people are acting like this was a real relationship. Negotiations for contract renewal didn’t pan out so…..

  7. Mia4s says:

    Ugh. So those shipper weirdos who were hoping they’d break up (and a two year old girl’s parents would no longer be together) so he would get with Gaga and they could live out their “Star is Born” wet dreams? Yeah they’re on twitter being as awful as you can imagine. 🙄 🙄

    He seems like….a lot. This doesn’t surprise me at all. Nice of her to stick around for the Oscar campaign though. That’s Hollywood.😂

    • Div says:

      Social media is so gross at times and encouraging “shipper” culture is one of the many things wrong with it. In addition to that sh*t, apparently people are spamming Gaga’s IG with horrible comments calling her a sl*t and all this BS.

    • Original T.C. says:

      Poor shippers don’t understand cut throat Oscar Campaigning and think Gaga and Cooper were really into each other. LMAO! Cooper has a type and it’s size 0-2 with sharp cheekbones. Definitely don’t think Cooper is Gaga’s kind of guy either. But bless their shipper hearts.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Reneé Zellweger may be a size 0, but she sure didn’t have sharp cheekbones when they were dating. (Google pics of them together; she has her nice, roundish face).

      • Bee says:

        Couldn’t remember them as a couple, but just looked and Renee definitely dated peak Bradley Cooper. He was genuinely hot before he started his morph into Barry Manilow.

  8. Loretta says:

    This isn’t a surprise but I’m sad for their daughter.

  9. DS9 says:

    I haven’t seen anything that suggests I should be team anyone. Marriages end all of the time, especially among people for whom imagine is part of their work.

    And hoping their child is safe when we have no reason to think otherwise is hella dramatic.

    • Enn says:

      Cosign all of this. Lowkey accusing someone of being abusive is wrong af.

      • Judy says:

        these comments are creeping me out… what’s up with everyone acting like irina needs to be in witness protection. So wrong.

      • Lady D says:

        Granted this is the first story I’ve read on these two ever, but I haven’t read anything here suggesting she is in any danger at all or that he’s abusive. The worst I’ve seen here is suggesting he is narcissistic.

      • Enn says:

        The last sentence in the article: “I hope she has a good support system and I hope she and Lea are safe and happy.”

  10. TheOriginalMia says:

    I stand by what I said yesterday. He seemed miserable during awards season when it became apparent he wasn’t winning a thing. I think his ego took a hit and he became unbearable to be around. Better to end it now than to stick around and be miserable and fighting in front of their kid.

    • Shirurusu says:

      Yes! Also his face has changed so much in the past few years I wonder if Irina ever woke up looking over at him and feeling too young to settle for a self important wax figure… his face seriously gives me the creeps!

      • Dee says:

        I was literally thinking while looking at these pictures “wow his face looks kinda like a character from The Labyrinth nowadays” 😂

      • Moneypenny says:

        His face is so different now. Imagine starting a relationship with Bradley Cooper and 4 years later, breaking up with Barry Manilow.

      • Shirurusu says:

        @ Dee & Moneypenny; it’s so sad and weird too! I wish people in Hollywood would age naturally rather than unnaturally- I mean Robert Redford is 80+ and still hot because he didn’t mess with his face! Sure he’s got lines and sunburn and what not but he looks like himself, not some melting wax work:/ Bradley has way too much filler in his cheeks and I don’t even know what else, I thought that about Gaga too though when they were performing, it’s tragic because it’s like seeing Elizabeth Taylor in the future for both of them !

    • M says:

      his first movie made over 410 million, became super popular and is sitting at 90% on rotten tomato. He’s making another movie with Carey Mulligan in the Fall, and he’s getting praise for making an actress out of Lady Gaga and doing his own singing, i think he’s good.

    • kosmos says:

      I didn’t know either of them, of course, so can we really say for sure what happened? Maybe there was mutual attraction at first, why not? And the baby, was that an accident or did they intentionally want that now? At any rate, I doubt that Bradley would intentionally have a child outside of marriage unless he was fairly in love with the woman. Personally, I think he’s very very invested in the movie business now and doing more directing. His movie was very demanding and he was all over the globe. I don’t see how a good relationship can survive that unless you are content being left behind. Of course, she travels for her job, too, so maybe they lacked together time. She’ll have plenty of child support money plus whatever she makes as a model. She’ll find another man more to her liking. He should stay unattached due to his career, which will always come first, I think.

  11. minx says:

    Yowza, she looks stunning! If she was bearding, why? If she wasn’t bearding, why again? She could do so much better than him.

    • Wendy says:

      She is waaaaaaaaay out of his ballpark.

    • SKF says:

      She can do SO much better. He is a weird guy.

    • Audrey says:

      $$$$$$$ and fame. Why else?

      • minx says:

        She’s gorgeous enough that I would think she wouldn’t have to settle for Bradley Cooper.

      • Cal says:

        he’s hardly settling? rich famous, oscar nominated, seen as hot… obviously she was attracted to him. why act like he’s a nobody

      • minx says:

        To each his/her own, but I’ve never seen a bit of heat or affection between the two of them. They’ve always looked like they barely tolerated each other.

      • oh-dear says:

        She was with Cristiano Ronaldo forever before Bradley Cooper, so I don’t think she was after fame. She had a far more luxurious lifestyle before.

      • Melanie says:

        oh-dear: I think she was trying to become more well-known in the U.S., the way that dating Cristiano made her well-known over in Europe. Dating a successful, well-liked American actor definitely would have given her a lot of exposure. I really think that’s at least part of the reason for this relationship.

  12. Alexandria says:

    Wow those fanatic ppl should leave Gaga alone. Is she the new Angelina?

    Shayk will be fine, Jeff Bezos is not married yet.

    In all honesty, she’s so hot. One of the most beautiful in my list.

  13. Wendy says:

    I’m confused by the beard comments. He was married to a woman prior to this and clearly these two had sex often enough to produce an accidental pregnancy. Has he had DL contact with members of the same sex? Probably. That doesn’t make him closeted.
    I just find it odd these comments predominantly show up about men we don’t care for around here and it feels like subtle shade.

    • Chaine says:

      I actually like BC, but I’ve never believed this was a real relationship. At any rate, sex is not the only way to make a pregnancy…

      • Wendy says:

        I thought they were pretty clear that it was accidental, or ‘unexpected,’ but yes, I suppose she could have slipped and fallen onto a loaded turkey baster.

    • Susan says:

      Are you talking about Jennifer Esposito? They got divorced after a matter of weeks. Four weeks I think? So hardly married. And the length of that marriage and some things said by Jennifer about it are the actual source of a lot of the gay rumors so the marriage should not be held up as evidence of his heterosexuality.

      But basically, a marriage certificate is irrelevant. It doesn’t hold any more weight of evidence than the years long relationship between Shayk and Bradley simply because a ceremony happened.

    • otaku fairy... says:

      Eh. He’s a guy. For the women, it’s borderline dangerous to even imply sexual/romantic interest/history in the same sex if strangers only or mostly managed to catch them romantically involved with guys growing up. Sometimes even girls who seem to have dated girls exclusively- like Cara Delevigne- are accused of faking it in some places. For the men, no amount of relationships with women or even having children with them can cast suspicion on bearding rumors (bisexual men don’t exist, right?). #Pride2019
      Also, repetition of a rumor is always seen as confirmation of a rumor, and folks like Enty have a lot of uncritical Stans who act as evangelizers everywhere for him.

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      I hate the “beard” comments. It’s bullying and seems to be all about stereotypes. I guess the people who say this about him think he “acts” gay or something? Whatever that means. I never understood this persistent rumor about him. Has he had a relationship with a man before? And if he has, who cares? Maybe he’s bi? Again, who cares? Enough with that awful term.

  14. Shutterbug says:

    Irina’s contract is up. She decided not to renew. That’s it. No drama.

    Also, I’m not sure it’s fair to say that BCoop is all about himself. Rather, he’s all about himself AND HIS MOTHER. That puts a strain on any relationship.

    • Tara says:

      What freaking contract? Why would anyone give birth in their prime years to a guy you fabricate relationship with? Irina is wealthy enough (her net worth is 10-15 mil), she’d been friends with Donatella Versace, Ricardo Tischi and Naomi Campbell way before she met Bradley. Or what, she can be bought cause she’s Eastern European? (Eyeroll)

    • Anni says:

      I had to laff seeing Irina’s Papp walk with her suitcase in the DM article about their split. It seems as if everyone involved really planned this turn of events out including money shots of her in her outfit etc.

      • Chaine says:

        And omg what was that thing she was wearing in the pix? She looked like she was leaving to go repair someone’s air conditioner.

      • 2lazy4username says:

        @Chaine – Or, it looks like she is actually heading to the airport to work the cargo area.

    • TeamAwesome says:

      THIS. His mother may be a delight, but he is still attached at the hip.

      • Judy says:

        his mother hasn’t been seen with them since the oscars and theyve been papped many times. Y’all are projecting your hatred of your own mother in laws onto Mrs Cooper.Leave her alone.

    • Wendy says:

      @Tara — you got to the heart of it better than I did in my earlier post. I don’t get what EITHER of them get out of a contract arrangement and especially by bringing a child into the mix.

    • PlayItAgain says:

      I’ve read in several places that their whole thing was contracted because he’s gay, but why bring a child into it? I suppose there are some women who think of kids as merely a way to guarantee years of support, but damn, that’s cold.

      • CindyP says:

        Maybe they both genuinely wanted a child

        To answer another question, what do they get out of their “contract”?

        He rebuts rumors that he’s gay by taking it up a notch; instead of being a serial super model dater, he’s a family man

        She hitches her star to an A list actor

        It’s not rocket science

      • Myrtle says:

        She also may be gay. And they made a pretty baby no doubt.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        Or maybe Irina didn’t have the baby to guarantee financial support, and people aren’t exactly on the nose about where Bradley Cooper falls on the Kinsey scale?

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Can people stop with these “contract” comments? They are dumb. You do realize that these are real people and NOT a soap opera right? They have a child together. Ffs.

      • Audrey says:

        We are here to gossip. You are not the moderator.

      • anon says:

        Real people have real contracts between them. Contracts are real business.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        @Audrey: Valiantly Varnished has just as much right to express her opinions and her takes on the gossip as everyone else, even if some are tired of political correctness.

      • leafy says:

        These types of contracts are a fact in HW and it’s not hard to imagine if you’re super ambitous and desperate to make it that you would enter one of these, for the simple reason relationships, breakups, and romances get you coverage and brand power. Look at all the millions of stories and billions of clicks this relationship got both of them!!! For example, those intended-to-be-hot pap pics (too staged) on that rocky Italian beach were supposed to give him the hotness he just doesn’t have.

        And modelling is not that profitable. They both got what they wanted out of this. She was super poor as a child and he is desperately ambitious to retain that leading man status. The next beard will be carefully chosen to help him secure that Oscar, but you know what? The general public really do not care anymore if an actor is gay or bi.

  15. Tara says:

    People are all over the internet yelling “gaga” while… I don’t think Gaga is “pretty” enough for Bradley (by his own standards). Yeah, that’s my opinion of him – he’s a shallow douche

    • Judy says:

      Lady Gaga is gorgeous. and sexy and full of personality and sass. And out of this world talented. Guys get bored of the walking mannequins very fast.

      • Cal says:

        Look at any interview of Lady Gaga’s versus one of this Shayk woman and you’ll see why he would want her. Not that i have any hint as to what’s going on but the people saying OMG how could he leave her, she’s so hot….. like they must be 16 and never been in the dating game to know about chemistry etc.

        I want Gaga back with that hot firefighter Taylor Kinney though. They were super cute.

      • Tara says:

        @Judy, @Cal, even though I like Gaga I must say she’s definitely not conveniently beautiful. First of all she had A TON of work on her face, I had a second-hand embarrassment when I saw how much filler she has in her puffy barely moving face in “a star is born”. but there’s no denying that she’s insanely talented

      • linda says:

        i thought Gaga was gorgeous in A Star is Born, like i was thinking how much better she looked without the make up.

  16. JanetFerber says:

    I think she’s the most gorgeous model around today. Somehow, Bradley seems sad to me. I don’t see the “narcissist, egomaniac” thing at all, but what do I know? He seems tragic, drugged, something. Kinda lost.

  17. xdanix says:

    God, I’m so sick of the “beard” and “contract” comments (they are honestly so insulting at this point) and all the ASIB and Gaga references and “jokes”all over social media and various articles. (Not you Kaiser! I appreciate how far away you’ve stayed from all of that!) These two had a life together. They had a family with their daughter, two dogs, had multiple homes together… all of that is breaking up for them now. ASIB was a movie, this is their real life. They have a young daughter who they seem to have really wanted to make things work for. Things ending like this… it’s just sad for them, not something to sneer at or laugh at.

    • Anni says:

      I personally think people called her instantly his beard because her previous relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, which really seemed only to exist back then for red carpet events and arranges paparazzi shootings.

      • xdanix says:

        I didn’t and don’t care at all about Ronaldo, so I never paid any attention to that relationship. But Irina walked 3 red carpets with Bradley in their entire 4 year relationship, and none until they’d been together for more than 3 years. So this relationship was clearly very different to that one. And whatever their reasoning, it’s just really dumb and disrespectful.

      • anon says:

        irina is up on her feelings over this relationship being seen as contractual… but she’s not the one to blame here. She’s likely being consciously used to clean Bradley’s reputation and image.

      • Patty says:

        I don’t believe for one second that Cristiano Ronaldo is gay either. He’s not masculine enough I guess for a lot of people. The same people who rail about toxic masculinity, always want to call a man gay simply because he’s fabulous- or doesn’t fit into whatever narrative they have in their heads of what a man should be, act, look like, dress, etc. Also, are we really suggesting that a woman would willingly beard for a series of men during what many would consider the prime of her life…and for what? We live in the social media age, this is not the 20th century anymore – it would be damn near impossible for anyone to have this kind of arrangments these days without someone spilling the beans.

    • DS9 says:

      The beard comments need to be fully discussed during Pride month in particular.

      Speculation regarding someone’s sexuality to the point of negating their personal relationships is an assault on identity.

      We are still a society that punishes people for their sexuality, yes but persistently identifying someone as gay despite their statements to the contrary does nothing to further acceptance but instead, continues to other people.

      • Greta says:

        Everything you said, thank you for this @DS9 . I find the consistent comments on here about his sexuality when all it does is negate his personal relationships really gross.

      • xdanix says:

        @DS9 @Greta I totally agree. It’s never, EVER said in any kind of positive way, I’ve noticed, or supportive. It’s always said in a way that puts Bradley or Irina down, that dismisses them and their relationship (or his relationships with past girlfriends).

    • Audrey says:

      This is a gossip blog, we gossip in the comments. Beyond that, I hate that Hollywood and the “industry” are still, in this day and age, forcing so many men and women into the closet. Many actors are closeted because the “industry” keeps them there. There is a lot of homophobia throughout the world and the industry does doesn’t want to jeopardize their revenue string. It sucks.

      • Cal says:

        but you are assuming he’s in the closet because of internet gossip. There’s no proof at all. so you all think oscar nominated/winner?? needed to beard for her at the time less famous boyfriend?? come on!

      • Audrey says:

        Yes. It’s not about him, it’s about ticket sales. The scam is as old as Errol Flynn and Rock Hudson. The Hollywood PR machine is well funded and does its job well. It’s all about the Benjamins.

      • xdanix says:

        @Audrey I am all for gossip. I love this site! But the way the “beard” and “contract” comments are thrown around about these two… it’s never done in any other way than dismissive and insulting. There’s no compassion there at all for a man people apparently think has been in the closet for 20 years to protect his career, which would be a sad and hard way to live his life IF it was true. Its just done in a way that puts him and them down. And there is no actual evidence at all to suggest BC is gay, and we’re talking about a man who has been acting for almost 20 years and very famous for 10 years at least, apart from people repeating the same old chestnut about rumours on the internet. You can find rumours about EVERYTHING on the internet. Doesn’t make 90% of those rumours in any way true. I think it’s really not ok seeing the way people snidely talk about “contracts” and “beard” with regards to these two. I’ve never thought it was ok, actually, but in the middle of a sad, hard time for them where they’re breaking up their family, I just think it really sucks to see somebody’s painful times dismissed as “ah, so the contract was up and he didn’t want to pay her more money” or whatever.

      • Moses says:

        Look, there’s a very real difference between discussing gossip and being outright nasty. Continuing to insist that Bradley and Irina—and by extension their DAUGHTER—only happened because of contractual agreements and awards campaigns is disgusting.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        Boundaries are ok, even on a gossip site and social media, Britney stans and Bey stans aren’t the only ones who could stand to hear that.

    • xdanix says:

      @Moses Thank you! Very well said, and I completely agree.

  18. Lizzie says:

    his mother *has* to be a problem as well. i can tell. i can see an overbearing old bitch a mile away.

    • minx says:

      Yep, yep.

    • Enn says:

      Have never heard a bad word about her, and trust me, that suburb is all about gossip.

      • Lizzie says:

        having a 3rd wheel in your relationship is hard. it is even harder when your partner is a mama’s boy. it doesn’t matter how nice she is to the neighbors.

    • FHMom says:

      I wouldn’t call her an old bitch. My guess is he has a special relationship with his mom. She is probably his closest confidant and understands him better than anyone. Maybe he feels responsible for her. Women have bonds like this all the time with their moms, and nobody thinks it’s strange. I say this as the mom of a son who is the light of my life, and 2 daughters who like to aggravate me.

      • Andrea says:

        My mother has a terrible time with her Italian MIL. Granted, my mother is a total narcissist, so her marrying an only child with an Italian MIL made zero sense to me.

      • Lizzie says:

        i’m sure your daughters know exactly what i’m talking about…

  19. Slizzard says:

    There are few celebs about whom I feel strongly enough to comment, but BC is one of them. He sends chills down my spine— and NOT the good kind. In every interview, especially since A Star is Born, he displays a toxic mixture of bloated sense of self and fragile ego. For years women have spoken out about their relationships with him and what terrible experiences they were, and I believe them.

    • North of Boston says:

      I still can’t get over some the the interviews with Gaga about working with him on ASIB, she was going on about how fantastic he was and how lucky she was to get to work with him but then when she gave examples it sound kind of abusive and demeaning…like on her first day on set in their first scene together, he went off script and she kept giving line readings and he would never react or respond to her, over and over and over again, until she finally broke down in tears. He then said “oh, are you OK?” Even if he were just another actor, that behavior is odd, but since he was her scene partner and director and this was their first scene together and her first acting scene it seemed like a d**k move.

      • Melanie says:

        North of Boston: I never heard that story. That does seem like a horrible thing to do.

  20. Latoya says:

    Whoa .. Why wouldn’t they be safe and happy… People break up. Don’t know why irina is suddenly a Saint and Bradley’s the bad guy. Irina had her own career going on. She wasn’t stuck at home

  21. Lena says:

    @slizzard:What women talked about their terrible relationship with him? None that I’ve heard and I am deliberately excluding jennifer Esposito and what she put in her memoir because she has proven to be a complete wack job herself (see her subsequent relationships). I agree with those saying this contract BS and Gaga blame is disrespectful and just dumb.

  22. becoo says:

    I get a Ben Affleck vibe from him…charismatic and put-together on the outside but toxic and perpetually unhappy internally.

  23. Latoya says:

    Yikes The Russians are out in force today O_____0

  24. Case says:

    They’ve always seemed miserable and mismatched. I’m not really on a “team” — neither of them come across as being very nice people, IMO.

  25. 2lazy4username says:

    She is Drop. Dead. GORGEOUS.
    i’m sure ol’ Serial Killer Eyes will find a new model soon enough.

  26. reg says:

    In Hollywood it’s called bearding….

  27. JRenee says:

    A relationship between 2 consenting adults has ended, hopefully the coparenting works well for the kid.

  28. Anon says:

    So, I saw the pap stroll at the airport. Serious question: Where’s the kid? Kinda strange that she’s leaving town without her baby.

    • Cal says:

      She’s probably with her father while her mother goes to model somewhere. the same as it’s always been. Why is it weird??

    • xdanix says:

      Her baby has two parents, both of them very involved parents. Irina has had her for much of the last week or two, to judge by the numerous photographs of them out and about without Bradley. Now she’s probably with him. Why is that strange at all? They’re going to have to get used to sharing custody for years to come.

  29. Jen says:

    I always got the impression that he was very much like his Sack Lodge character, but in real life. Where’s Vince Vaughn when you need him?

  30. Cal says:

    Shayk is really enjoying this attention. That pap stroll with the suitcase was so cringe, like wow…

    • jen says:

      I saw those photos too lol! And other photos where she is all in black, hair slicked back. She is definitely dressing the part, but I think she is gorgeous and looks pretty bad-ass. Might as well go out in style.

  31. Nikki says:

    I don’t presume to know what ever goes on in another’s relationship, but there has always been something about him that seems smarmy or disturbed to me. I’ve tried very hard to talk myself out of it, and I think he’s a good actor, but there you have it. I always feel there’s something lurking underneath.

    • Andrea says:

      I commented below that there is something in his eyes that weirds me out and I cannot place it persay.

    • bears says:

      I’ve always felt the same way. As soon as he started being groomed as the new ‘sexy leading man’, I balked and refused to have that mess shoved down my throat. Something isn’t right with that dude and I just can’t quite put my finger on what it is.

  32. Ginger says:

    Have at it, ASIB truthers!

  33. Andrea says:

    I have never been a Bradley Cooper fan. He gives me weird vibes. Something about his eyes. These two were mismatched from the start and everywhere predicted it wouldn’t last (Much like Fassbender and Vikander, but they are still shockingly together). They looked miserable throughout award season and this probably was a long time coming!

    • Minxx says:

      I agree. They never looked remotely interested in each other. The fact that she was with Ronaldo for years makes me doubt the relationship with BC was genuine. As to Vikander and Fassbender: I don’t know about their marrage, but his career is pretty much over, hers is on life support. To top it all, he looks like he needs to check into rehab asap. At least BC is doing well.

      • Andrea says:

        I agree wholeheartedly with your assessment of Fassbender and Vikander. They both have a virtually nonexistent career once they got married. It is really odd. They always looked similar to Cooper and Irina for me, rarely ever look happy to be in each others presence.

  34. Cat says:

    I’m sad for their daughter, who’s a couple of week olders than mine. I think Bradley must be a complicated person to live with, and Irina seems like she doesn’t suffer fools. Regarding the beard rumours, Lainey had several blind items widely thought to be about Bradley as a closeted man years ago.

    • Andrea says:

      hmmm…Maybe there is something to those rumors then. Lainey is rarely ever wrong.

  35. Busyann says:

    I just keep hearing the celebitchy podcast from a few weeks ago when Katie said she wanted a good summer break up this year. You ladies are awesome and that podcast is great!

  36. TeamAwesome says:

    Back on the old Television Without Pity boards (RIP TWOP), there were rumors about him and Victor Garber during his Alias days, so these stories have been around as long as he has been on a screen.

  37. SilentStar says:

    Clearly his awful haircut was the last straw.

  38. bears says:

    I just love how these people casually date and make new human beings together with no real commitment or intent to stay together. It’s so blissfully irresponsible and ‘Hollywood’ of them.

    • Yes Doubtful says:

      Maybe the child wasn’t planned? They stayed together for 2 years after the birth of the child. Clearly, there was an intent and/or effort to stay together. It just didn’t work out. It’s better to separate and be happy than stay together and be miserable. Why would they want their child to witness an unhappy relationship?
