After months of rumors of tension in their relationship, actor Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have split after four years together according to multiple sources.
Sources have confirmed to multiple outlets that the 44-year-old and the 33-year-old supermodel have ended their relationship and are now working out how to amicably share custody of their 2-year-old daughter Lea De Seine who they welcomed in March 2017, two years into after they began dating.
Despite the news of the split, a representative for either of the stars have not released a statement.
Although they were together for four years, the famous duo were pros at keeping their romance out of the spotlight. “I have a lot of friends who share a lot of their personal life on Instagram or social media, very publicly. I admire it and I think it’s great – but I think it’s all about personal choice,” Shayk told Glamour UK as recently as February 2019.
“Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet. That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it.”
The news of the split came only days after reports that the pair’s relationship was “hanging on by a thread.” Their relationship was also under major scrutiny ever since the release of Cooper’s hit film A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga. Rumors of Cooper and Gaga’s intense chemistry causing issues in his relationship with Shayk ran rampant but both Cooper and Gaga denied that anything romantic had ever happened or was happening between them.
Eventually Lady Gaga addressed the rumors during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where she said, “[Shallow] is a love song, A Star Is Born is a love story. It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel.” She added, “I’m an artist and I guess [Bradley and I] did a good job… fooled ya!”
