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.”
