People: Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper had a ‘huge & overwhelming connection’

91st Annual Academy Awards - Audience

As we continue to discuss, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s breakup is happening and I guess people really want to convince us that there’s something shady or scandalous about it. Yesterday, we heard that Bradley Cooper was “emotionally distant” with Irina while filming A Star Is Born, the subtext being, I suppose, that he was emotionally present for Lady Gaga. I’ve never bought anything having to do with B-Coop and Gaga, not even when the Bradley-Gaga rumor mill was in overdrive following their performance at the Oscars. I thought their performance was nice, I did not think it “broke the woman code” and I agreed (at the time) that Irina had zero concerns about it, even though Irina seemed to unfollow Gaga on social media right before the Oscars. Hm. Well, here’s more:

A Star Is Born was a massive success for Bradley Cooper but the Oscar-winning film, co-starring Lady Gaga, may have contributed to his split from Irina Shayk. As Cooper, 44, and Lady Gaga, 33, made headlines around the world with their film, a source tells PEOPLE the rumors of a possible romance between them exacerbated the rift between Cooper and Shayk, 33.

“The rumors about Bradley and Gaga having a love affair didn’t help especially with his constant travels [promoting the film],” says the source. The insider adds, “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.”

[From People]

It’s like that meme:

No one:….
Not a soul:….

The last time we heard anything about Gaga’s love life, she had suddenly split from her fiance Christian Garino and then she was maybe dating Jeremy Renner. Is it possible I read everything wrong between Gaga and Bradley? I mean, sure, it’s possible. But I just feel like these strategic leaks are part of something else, maybe? Lainey thinks the same – she theorized that Gaga is being used as a cover for whatever really went down with Cooper.

    I could see them connecting as they are both seem very intense about their work, so perhaps a recognition of a like spirit? But I have a really difficult time believing he would ever be with someone whose star shines as bright as his, if even brighter. From everything we’ve read he doesn’t seem like the kind of man who can have an equal partnership. Then again, what do I know?

    • Lady Keller says:

      I think they did have a strong connection, but it was purely work related. They both put a lot of themselves into the project and I think there was a very strong mutual recognition.

      At my last job I also had a strong connection with the overweight middle aged lady who did our account receivables, but it’s not like I was about to leave my husband for her.

      • BchyYogi says:

        I think LG is attracted to men who are not like her, so I -could- see this. Tho I would be annoyed by the premise of an LTR; I was annoyed by the film & would find this couple imbalanced and improbable.

      • Fatshaming is crappy says:

        Lady Keller: You could have made your point without implying overweight people are unattractive. It only shows how ugly your soul is.

    • Some chick says:

      She shines way, way brighter than BCoop. Pretty sure that’s part of the reason that his people are promoting the showmance, still. She’s got no dog in this race.

      • Coco says:

        I think Gaga’s doing him a favour. She’s her be a scapegoat so he could ditch his beard IIrina.

  2. aiobhan targaryen says:

    Why are they trying to make this couple into a thing? They are two fame hungry stars who would never actually get along as a couple. They would try to outshine each other. It would turn into a toxic mess.

    He comes off as creepy and controlling. Like deep down he really is that trash character from those Hangover movies. I am not really sure when I decided this about him, but I feel it down to my core. Plus, I saw a photo of him hanging out with one of the showrunners from Game of Thrones (the one not married to Amanda Peet) and I thought “yeah, this guy is a douche”.

    • Eliza says:

      I think you hit the nail on the head: fame hungry. Nothing went on, but they won’t try to stop the stories that keep their names in the papers.

    • Latoya says:

      Lady Gaga leads a pretty private life. She’s rarely papped and we only ever really see her when she’s on the publicity rounds, which is part of her job. Yes she makes an entrance like nobody else and knows how the fame game works… Her first and second album were called The Fame and The Fame Monster… But she’s not somebody who lives their life in public. She doesn’t even date famous men. I think you are thinking too much of the 2009 Gaga because the 2019 Gaga is very different. She’s been through it with depression and chronic illness and likes a pretty quiet life. She won’t be enjoying this.

    • minx says:

      Publicity, that’s why. He’s so eeww.

      • kosmos says:

        If it were another woman in the film other than Gaga, then she would be to blame. Of course Coop has to have a strong connection with the female romantic co-star in the film–and they pulled it off and were successful. That’s what movies are about. And yes, they also happened to connect on other levels bc they’re both from the same town and both Italian etc. etc., which made the film and the connection even better. They have a “mutual respect” and admiration for each other. No, I do not think they’re going to be romantically linked at all. Perhaps the fact that Coop was out of the country so much with his film, and directing his first film had to be a huge effort, he probably neglected his relationship somewhat. She could probably see the writing on the wall, that this was going to be happening all the time. I don’t blame her for busting out. Maybe it wasn’t the life she wanted for her and her child.

    • Molly says:

      Yes, fame hungry and opportunistic. She used him to legitimize her acting career, and he used her to position himself as some benevolent mentor. Their relationship was perfectly self-serving. Now, was it disrespectful to fawn all over each other and eye-bang across the lap of Irina at all these award shows and red carpets? Absolutely. Does it mean their relationship was anything more than a highly calculated Oscar run? Absolutely not.

      Also, Gaga isn’t young or pretty enough for the Coop.

      • Riley says:

        You are spot on!! GaGa, while close in age to Irinna is way too famous and not pretty enough for him. I think all of his relationships are relatively “fake”, in the sense that he’s not all that into anyone except himself. I don’t see him ever marrying anyone.

      • Latoya says:

        What? She didn’t use him for anything. He hired her for a job. They both helped each other with their respective talents. There’s no shadiness here. This conspiracy theorising is getting weird. He had to hire an amazing singer who could act. Who could compare to Streisand etc How many women like that in Hollywood like that? He knows how lucky he was to get her. Who else was there? Katy Perry? Lol

      • Villanelle says:

        Wow. Molly. Be a bitch much? She’s not young or pretty enough? She used him to legitimize her acting career? Christ, you’re the girl none of the other girls should trust.

      • HMC says:

        Villanelle, I took Molly’s comment to be derisive about Bradley Cooper, not Lady Gaga and loaded with sarcasm about his pattern of dating (with some outliers: Jennifer Lopez, Renee Zellweger) and wasn’t a slap against a woman.

    • tealily says:

      Yeah, it seems far more likely to me that if he was distant during the filming of the movie, it’s because he was throwing himself into his role in that way that means he completely withdraws from his personal life that so many of these male actors seem to do, obnoxiously.

      • Lady2Lazy says:

        I completely agree with you. There was also talk that she was upset that after having their daughter, marriage would follow and it didn’t. In addition, she is more of a homebody and I read that they have nothing in common. That would lead to the split up, not Gaga.

    • Tigerlily says:

      Why is Celebitchy buying into these fame-ho’s BS? I know, I know….this is a gossip site. But seriously seems like shilling for the two fame–hos’ PR. What’s Bradley (aka young Barry Manilow) gonna do? Sign Gaga up for a beard contract now that Irina’s contract is done? Give me a friggin break

    • Riley says:

      @HMC–I took it that way too. The only shade being thrown @BC, not GaGa.

  3. AB says:

    I think you’re right and Gaga is the shiny toy dangled for the press. Hell, both he and Gaga may be blatantly using each other for publicity. This way Cooper gets to maintain his Serious Artist(TM) cred (he’s so committed to his roles that his relationships suffer) and no one is looking into his true actions.

  4. The Crumpled Horn says:

    Ummmm is anyone even buying this story?

    Isn’t bearding so 1954? Like seriously I would buy Arnie and Danny deVito as a couple before these two fame-hungry drongos…

  5. LORENA says:

    Jackson & Ally foreva

    • Asutter says:

      I finally watched it(thanks HBO) and absolutely loved it. I don’t think these two would ever be a couple but their chemistry in character was palpable.

      • lucy2 says:

        I watched it last night too, was waiting for it to be free, LOL. I thought it was good, not great.
        Gaga was much better than I expected (but not Best Actress level). Bradley was OK. I thought they had decent chemistry. That *@&%ing song is stuck in my head again, and I don’t really like it.

      • Renee says:

        @ Asutter, I agree. I loved it & thought their chemistry was great.

  6. Alexandria says:

    I just think that Gaga would find him a bore.

    • BchyYogi says:

      IMO she likes boring men…she likes to shine and have someone “grounding”. I’d like to idealize two interesting ppl together, but usually divas like solid men?

  7. Digital Unicorn says:

    I never got any ‘connection’ between him and Irina and with Gaga is was clearly all for show in their desperate for an Oscar campaign.

    I have never ever ever ever ever ever got his appeal. No matter how clean up he is for award shows etc.. he oozes sleaze in that you need a good scrub down in Dettol even if you stand next to him for a few mins. The douchebaggery is too strong to be hidden.

    Am not sure I buy the rumours that he is in the closet (maybe bi), I do however buy into the sleaziness that runs rampant with white men with some sort of success in HW. He gives off that vibe strongly.

    • The Crumpled Horn says:

      Unicorn I agree with everything you said.

      WTH is this guy’s appeal? He just looks sooooooooo sleazy!

    • Renee2 says:

      Digital Unicorn,

      Are you from the Caribbean or British??? I ask because of the Dettol remark, lol.

    • Megan says:

      I have never understood his appeal. He has such a strong ick factor.

      • somaticluna says:

        Have you seen A Place Beyond the Pines? He’s really good in that. His character is a little shady and super ambitious. Also in that B-grade film Limitless. He plays those slightly shady characters well. Not a fan but I don’t mind him at all and this showmance hasn’t put me off seeing him in future films.

    • Erinn says:

      I find him kind of handsome. He’s not on my ‘favorite hollywood guy’ list, but I also don’t mind looking at him, ahaha.

      I don’t get the sleaze factor. He comes off (to me) as a less Hiddleston Hiddleston. Sort of a nerd, loves drama and his job, but somehow more bro-ish, but not a douche bro.

      Maybe he is a douchebag, and I just have bad taste? I just don’t see him as some sort of mustache twirling creep.

      • FHMom says:

        I think he strongly wants to be seen as a Renaissance man . He’s educated, handome, speaks French, dates desirable women, etc. For that reason I don’t see him as a creep at all. He’s a try hard Tom Huddleston without the pedigree or charm. Not a bad guy, just too image conscious to be his true self.

    • Marianne says:

      Yeah I dont get the gay vibe either. I see him more as womanizing dudebro.

    • BchyYogi says:

      I don’t read sleezy w him, more of a “will age like Kevin Costner” boring as life vibe.

  8. Kristen says:

    Jennifer Aniston would like a word.

  9. geekychick says:

    This whole Pr campaign just confirmes Lainey from Lainey gossip was right. She pointed out how peculiar it is to outright hype emotional infidelity/budding love in the same text you’re confirming your breakup and that you weren’t there for your newborn child for your “art” aka making of this movie.
    Just….not very pr positive, except when you wabt to hide something else.;)
    He’s pathethic (no matter why they ended up together, don’t have a child if you plan to be distant to him/her for the first year) and this wholr “Cooper the ladies man” is ultra-pathethic spin.

    • Ficklenot says:

      “Hiding something”:100%. That’s why I believe the in the closet rumours about cooper. the overdone lady gaga chemistry thing was all to deflect from how fake his relationship w/ irina was and why they really broke up. I think he’s bi but prefers men.
      And Jeremy Renner, really? Renner has a live in bf, kristoff, his house flipping “business partner” and “roommate. “

  10. Enn says:

    I find the bearding and closet comments incredibly crass, especially during Pride Month.

    • Audrey says:

      I think the comments are shedding light on an old homo-phobic Hollywood rule that gay people are never to come out (except for very few). The more people see through this charade and talk about it, the better.

      • Tiger says:

        and some gossips are obsessed with celebs being gay

      • Cindy says:

        “shedding light on an old homophobic rule”

        You’re assuming a man’s sexuality and mocking him for not coming out of the closet. Don’t try to spin this into something woke, like you’re doing a favor to closeted Hollywood actors by speculating about their sexuality after reading gossip articles.

      • otaku fairy... says:

        “Don’t try to spin this into something woke, like you’re doing a favor to closeted Hollywood actors by speculating about their sexuality after reading gossip articles.” Ugh, thank you. People also try this as a defense for certain….other, more dangerous rumors they spread about famous women and underage girls too, and I can’t roll my eyes enough over that one. People try it with their erasure of bisexual women they don’t like too. “We’re removing the unworthy from the LGBT community 4 the greater good!”
        I don’t know if Bradley Cooper has ever just come right out and labelled his sexuality either way, but it’s interesting that people assume that he and most other men just have to be gay and all their relationships/families with women faked, as if there are no in-between options like a person not being 100% straight or gay. Or that they could be misreading the situation all around based on gender roles and stereotypes.

      • somaticluna says:

        Tiger, Otaku, and Cindy, why aren’t we speculating about other showmances like J Lo and A Rod, Kath Schwarzenegger and Chris Pratt, Orlando and Katie, etc, etc, etc. There are dozens and dozens of showmances with very thirsty couples but we focus only on Bradley and Irina’s for a particular reason. It’s not because we’re homophobic; it’s because they’ve been contrived – and not just super thirsty – from the start. And I was pleased to see Richard Madden’s subtle handling of the publicity about his relationship and everyone going, “Leave him alone,” and basically accepting his sexuality is completely irrelevant to his profession as an actor. Bradley and Irina on the other hand have made their showmance a huge deal. They’re selling something and you can say yes or no depending on whether you want to buy.

    • geekychick says:

      why does it have to be about him being gay?
      It can be about him being sleazebag, abusive, totally different from his brand…
      for instance, I don’t care who he’s attracted to, but I do care about the fact that he is constantly promoted as a big artist and actor and that his emotional distance that borders (to me) on abusive-plan a child with someone and then leave them to deal with everything on their own for the first 6 months is incredibly damaging to your relationship and especially bonding with the child-is written of as something to understand because he’s an ARTIST now.
      Until we accept that there is no excuse to neglecting your child, people will do it. People wil lfind a reason. But in my opinion, if you decide for a child, raise the child. no excuses.
      and chauvinism. if Bradley was a woman, tabloids would DESTROY her: “Mother pn ser instead of
      mothering! Emotional affair while father was taking care of the poor baby! Poor baby abandoned by mom!!!!!”
      Can you imagine?

      • Latoya says:

        Whoa…. You’re going too far. Saying he neglects his kid is harsh. He might not have been boyfriend of the year but he loves his kid. Jeez come on

      • Tiffany :) says:

        From what I’ve read, his pre-production work was done largely in his home that he shared with Irina. So yeah, I think geekychick is way over playing the neglecting child idea.

    • Audrey says:

      Just want to go on record that I am NOT mocking anyone. I’m mocking Hollywood’s PR machine that thinks we’re too stupid to see the truth.

      • Tigerlily says:

        Audrey- +100

      • somaticluna says:

        Thanks, Audrey. +1 million.
        These people benefit from the PR. They play the PR game, which could reap them a successful career and tens of millions of dollars a year. Some people just let the chips fall wherever and let their talent and charisma speak for themselves: Daniel Day Lewis, Meryl Streep, whoever. We’re allowed to judge because they want us to judge (positively though obviously). It’s go nothing to do with homophobia. Bradley should come out and be honest and I hope he gets lots of jobs as I seem to be among the minority who enjoys him in films. Seasoned gossip readers saw Irina and Bradley’s rocky-beachside loved-up pap shots and LOL’d as it was so contrived. They might have genuine affection but it was undoubtedly a pick-a-nice-romantic-spot-and-call-the-paps-in-advance moment.

    • PlainJane says:

      Enn – thank you for saying this!

  11. Div says:

    So I read the Blind Gossip theory that both BCoop and Gaga are using this for PR and I think it makes zero sense. It does not benefit Gaga to be seen as the “other woman”—even if some people were publicly shipping them in general the public is pretty sexist and the tide would quickly turn to calling her a homewrecker. I can see why her PR would want her to play into the narrative before the Oscars, but after the Oscars there is no net positive for her. Also, the sourcing from the People is stated to be from someone close to Irina or BCoop.

    It’s just commons sense that there’s no benefit for her post Oscars, even if people don’t care for her or think she’s fame hungry to the point that any attention is good. Besides that, she’s never talked about how her love life much even in her documentary where she got personal about other things.

    Anyway, I suspect Lainey might be right that BCoop’s PR could be putting this out as a deflection. She pointed out that there could be something going on between BCoop and Gaga or Irina’s publicist could have leaked this (because it’s just coy enough not to completely alienate BCoop but still sell a story). But the coy nature could also be because it’s from his team wanting to steer the tabloids in a certain direction to cover for him without completely angering Gaga’s team if they find out because BCoop’s team haven’t straight up claimed something. Another thing that is points in the BCoop’s team is up to something is they dropped this break up news the week the extended version of A Star is Born came out on Blu-Ray.

    • lucy2 says:

      If this is a PR play, I hope she’s in agreement with it, because that would be lousy of him to use her as a scapegoat in his breakup.
      If they do announce a relationship, I bet they try the Angelina/Brad thing of “they fell in love during the movie but nothing happened until they split with their significant others”.

      • Tiger says:

        well id believe that because paps have been all over Bradley since the oscars. Gaga went underground for 2 months which she tends to do in between work. She employs Beyonce level security.

  12. Tiger says:

    Y’all are crazy with this gay thing. Nothing bores me more than bearding stories. People are obsessed wit celebs being gay. It’s very weird.

    FYI Bradley is playing a gay man in his next movie about Leonard Bernstein. Directing it too. I really doubt he would want to be drawing attention to that side of things if he has to resort to using one of the most famous women in the world as his cover [[[EPIC EYEROLL]]] Make it all make sense.

    I’ve been paying attention to this Bradley/Gaga thing and i do think they are into each other. Like you can#t act that good. At the very least they are VERY good friends because ive seen them both get emotional in interviews talking about the movie. Don’t forget Bradley is a recovering alcoholic too so this movie must have been quite hard to act. And Gaga’s best friend died during filming and she split with Taylor Kinney prior to filming too. and his daughter was born. I’m fully buying that they are close friends after all that.

    But God some of the commentary on all of this is so ridiculous

    • Audrey says:

      I just have to laugh when people say that actors are acting so straight, they can’t be gay. THEY ARE ACTORS! Bradley is paid millions to act. He knows how to.

      • Tiger says:

        but Audrey – you don’t make sense. He wants so badly to cover up his gayness that he’s throwing Gaga under the bus or he’s cool with playing a gay man knowing full well he will have to answer questions on sexuality AND he knows the gossip out there about him already. You can’t have it both ways

      • Audrey says:

        Him playing a gay man doesn’t mean anything about his sexuality. Straight men have played gay men. They act. That shouldn’t be the spark of a new conversation about his sexuality. All this PR spin using Lady Gaga is a lot more suspicious than any role he is playing.

    • Bella Bella says:

      Hey, maybe he’ll use the Bernstein movie to come out! It will be great PR! LOL Tiger, it’s strange how uncomfortable the concept of Cooper being gay makes you.

      • Latoya says:

        Nope, Tiger is right. It doesn’t make sense. So he’s gonna employ major spin tactics to cover his fatness while throwing his friend under the bus to get the homewrecker label… Only to come out in a year? Somebody who has lived his life going from beard to beard with “contracts” (wtf lol) is not gonna go near gay roles, let alone direct one. Stop the madness.

  13. RoyalBlue says:

    Where there is smoke there is fire.

    Yes I think he and Gaga did the beast between the sheets, briefly and probably regretted it. word got out and Gaga broke up with her bf. after enough time passed the Cooper/Irina pretense is up and they go their separate ways. Yes, that’s my fan fiction.

  14. Darla says:

    I agree with those who said the gay/bearding comments are offensive and at this point, so ridiculous.

    I dismissed the Gaga rumors out of hand, but when she suddenly split with her fiance, and now this….I admit my eyebrow is raised. I still doubt it, but…time will tell.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think all those rumors started when his ex-wife filed for divorce and cited “fraud”, which could be a lot of different things.
      Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t, it’s no one’s business unless the person wants to discuss it publicly.

  15. Meg says:

    Unrelated and superficial note-that pic of him with his daughter and hes wearing flip flops with pants is a weird look for him-a man wearing flip flops who’s not at the beach rarely doesn’t look weird to me for some reason

    • clairej says:

      I love that jandals and jeans look, but in New Zealand it is a common look. Thought it was most places. I really like Bradley. He is a talented guy. I only got huge respect vibes from Bradley and Gaga at the Oscars. They performed so well. I will believe they are together once I see firm proof.

  16. starryfish29 says:

    These two aren’t even officially dating & I’m already tired of hearing about their relationship.

  17. Zapp Brannigan says:

    I truly believe that the only time Bradley Cooper is ever in love is when he is looking in the mirror. I cannot for the life of me explain it, but I get emotionally cold and controlling vibes from him out the wazoo, I cannot logically explain it and as for the gay rumours I take those with buckets of salt, for me he is like Tom Cruise in that respect, so into themselves and controlled that they could never be close in any way with a partner, #kanyeshrug.

  18. Skeptical says:

    I thought all in all this movie was mixed and the ending weak. But I did feel that they Bradley in particular were very committed to their acting and I honestly felt the connection. That doesn’t mean she was a home wrecker….

  19. vegasschmegas says:

    Saw her on Sunday doing her “Jazz and Piano” show in Vegas – AMAZING! Tony Bennett was her special guest. She tells lots of stories about her life, not one of them includes Bradley. Her family was in the audience. Gorgeous gowns. She has such a beautiful voice. For this genre (jazz), she’s reminded me of a mashup of Liza Minelli, Judy Garland and Patti Lupone. She was still going at 11 pm……

    • Naddie says:

      I think I’d like to see her show, I just love hearing her speaking. And if she sings “You and I” I don’t even care about the rest.

  20. Beech says:

    Oh my. Giggling.

  21. Tim Whatley says:

    If you want a laugh, google Bradley Cooper asking Sean Penn question on Inside the Actor’s Studio…he is the pose-y-est theatre geek….total cringe.

  22. Kyra says:

    This is theater. Both of these people, including and maybe especially Gaga, are so narcissistic and removed from the world that a real relationship wouldn’t be possible. Definitely not with each other. What this does is generate publicity and that’s it. Bradley should be thanking irina for leaving, for making him momentarily in the news even without a project to promote. In the meantime, the kid gets away from a massive narcissist for a father, which might be a blessing.

  23. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I think all of this is hilarious since before the stans decided to create their phantom love story there were rumors that Bradley and Gaga HATED each other. And THAT is the rumor I’m more inclined to believe.

    As a former actress I can say – it’s literally our JOB to pretend to be in love at times. I did it with actors I absolutely LOATHED.

  24. Tiffany says:

    With there egos being so large, how will they fit in a room to see each other.

  25. Andrea says:

    What does everyone think truly went down if it wasn’t Lady gaga? Was it simply he got bored?

    • Melanie says:

      I’m thinking they didn’t really have anything in common to begin with. I also never saw the lust that supposedly wore off between them. They always looked awkward and uncomfortable with each other.

  26. endlesscircles says:

    I do not buy Gaga and Coop. What I do buy is Coop probably felt bored by the trappings of family life with a non artistic gf (as far as know Irina isn’t artistic) and was intrigued by the connection he had with a fellow artist. He took a long, hard look at his life and his mate and thought he needed something different, a different connection.

    I don’t think anything inappropriate went on.I think Coop and Irina drifted apart. It happens!

    I also find the bearding stuff rude. And the word HOMEWRECKING because usually that word is associated with chicks who are with “taken” men and it’s sexist and generally absolves men of their role in said “wrecking.”

  27. Div says:

    I find BCoop to come across as a bit of a douche, and even I think people are being overly harsh on here going after his parenting, etc.. Yikes.

  28. Parigo says:

    I almost think this is true because the rollout has been so orchestrated and she’s said nothing to the contrary. Why would they be pushing this narrative? What does she possibly have to gain by being the other woman? Sure it gives her publicity but not good publicity for the industry.

  29. Usedtobe says:

    I’m having flashbacks to BCoop and Jennifer Lawrence rumors with this…

  30. Eliza says:

    What about his friendship with co-actor in Star is Born, Rafi Gavron. Several pictures coming from his apt last week during the day? Any thoughts….pictures showing Bradley and the younger Fafi leaving. It was on May 23 and again in early June. You can catch the pics if google both their names….just friends???
