Bradley Cooper ‘would be fully supportive of whoever Irina chooses to date’

Friendly exes Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper pictured chatting at a local park in NYC!

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk’s 2019 split was only dramatic for a few weeks. They waited to break up officially several months after everything was done and dusted on A Star Is Born, including the whole “maybe B-Coop is secretly in love with Lady Gaga” thing. God, remember that? For months – while Bradley was still with Irina – people were trying to sell Bradley and Gaga as a potential love match. When Bradley and Irina did break up, Gaga was brought into it again and there were genuine conversations about “did Bradley get too close to Gaga and that’s why he and Irina are done?” Gaga was not his side-chick or jumpoff, people. As I said, it was only dramatic for a moment, then everything calmed down around Irina and Bradley. They easily moved to a co-parenting relationship, they live close to each other in New York, and they still hang out for Lea’s sake. So how does B-Coop feel about Irina dating Kanye West?

Having her back! When it comes to Irina Shayk dating Kanye West, Bradley Cooper has nothing but good wishes for his former girlfriend.

“Bradley would be fully supportive of whoever Irina chooses to date — he just wants her to be happy,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly after news of the model’s romance with the musician broke. Cooper, 46, and Shayk, 35, started dating in 2015 and welcomed their daughter Lea De Seine, 3, in March 2017. The couple split in June 2019 but have stayed in each other’s lives as they prioritize being parents and working on their friendship.

“Bradley and Irina are not just on good terms as coparents, they’re also close as friends and share personal things with each other,” the insider added.

Shayk’s new romance doesn’t interfere with her relationship with Cooper. A source previously told Us that the exes found their new normal and they always put their daughter first.

“They are on healthy terms and are very respectful of one another, making the coparenting process much more seamless and smooth. At this point in time, they are better off as friends,” an insider told Us in February. “Bradley’s focus is and has been his daughter and his mom, [Gloria Campano], whom he adores. They will always be his No. 1s. Irina’s focus, of course, is her daughter and then any modeling work she has going on.”

“Any modeling work she has going on” makes it sound like Irina barely works. She’s still an in-demand model, she’s constantly booking editorials, runways and campaigns. Anyway, I believe that Bradley and Irina are on good terms. They seem like friends who easily co-parent, which I think they were before they even broke up. But would you want your ex dating Kanye West? Eh. If I was in Bradley’s situation, I would be like “is Kanye going to wear his MAGA hat around Lea? Because that would suck.”

    Am I the only one who doesn’t see B. Cooper one of those men really attached to his partners? I don’t think he cares about whom any of his exes are dating.

  2. Christa says:

    BCoop has aged! That’s what’s toddlers do to one, I guess.

    • Asking for a friend says:

      And the pandemic – I feel like I look five years older now. I never thought he was attractive, though.

      I do enjoy Irina’s outfits…for the sake of weirdness.

    • Coji says:

      Some men get more attractive with age, Cooper is not one of those men.

  3. lucy2 says:

    I’m sure he’s fine with her dating, but dating Kanye…he’s a mess, and a 3 ring publicity circus. I can’t imagine Bradley is thrilled.

  4. LOL says:

    Why does Bradley Cooper look so odd

  5. LOL says:

    As for who his baby mama is dating I don’t think he cares at all …as long as it doesn’t effect the co-parenting all is good

  6. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    He’s starting to look like Fauci.

  7. Bryn says:

    Honestly, if i was him I would be concerned. Kanye is a mess, the jesus complex, the recent religious mania, the untreated mental illness. I would be very concerned about who his daughter is around and the impact it could have on her. Same goes for his own children with Kim.

    • Amelie says:

      Me too. Kanye has a documented history of extreme behavior and manic episodes and going off his medication. I wouldn’t want my daughter around that either. My guess is the second Kanye displays that, Irina will be out (I hope).

  8. Chaine says:

    Kanye barely seemed to be around or interact with his own kids? Living months away from them in Wyoming… I doubt he will have much interest in his new GF’s kid(s) or interact with them much, either, so I feel oddly unbothered by the thought he’s dating someone with a child.

  9. Keri says:

    I like how the US Weekly article notes that Lea is 3 but also that she was born in March 2017… hmmm do that math again.

  10. Melanie says:

    Am I the only person who doesn’t believe that Irina and Bradley are as close as they want us to believe? I seriously feel like they tolerate each other, and did so for at least the last year of their situation/relationship.

    • Lena says:

      No I get the feeling it’s not that friendly. Better than some toxic ex’s but not like they are good friends.
