Are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper dating? That’s the question on her fans’ minds lately. Ever since the singer ended her engagement with Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney, she’s been seen with Bradley Cooper a lot lately.
Lady Gaga, 30, and Bradley Cooper, 41, were first spotted having dinner in Santa Monica, long before she even called off her engagement to Taylor Kinney. The two stars arrived at Giorgio Baldi Italian restaurant wearing matching black leather jackets, helmets, and jeans, reports Us Weekly. Gaga was seen riding on the back of Cooper’s motorcycle when they arrived at the venue. The “Bad Romance” singer looked visibly annoyed by the paparazzi and was seen with her engagement ring still on her finger.

Cooper, who is currently dating Russian model Irina Shayk, appears to be just a good friend of the singer. He reportedly asked Gaga out to dinner to discuss his remake of A Star is Born, which will be his big directorial debut at Warner Bros., reports Deadline.
Since then, it appears that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have become really good friends and co-workers. The two were recently spotted shopping together in Malibu over the Labor Day weekend. This time around, the two were seen grocery shopping just weeks after the pop star announced that she’s starring in Cooper’s remake of A Star Is Born. According to Us Weekly, Gaga drove Cooper around town in her baby blue Ford Bronco.

“I’m elated to be directed by & starring w/ Bradley in this project. He’s a brilliant visionary artist. #AStarisBorn #AStarisBornCooperGaga,” the actress tweeted on Tuesday, August 16, just months after the rumors swirled about her role.
On Sunday, September 4, the duo shopped at Vintage Grocers, and Gaga was spotted leaving with a brown shopping bag. Gaga was photographed wearing a white camisole, dark denim cutoff shorts, and sneakers, while Cooper wore a red T-shirt, black jeans, and a white baseball cap. Both stars also wore dark sunglasses in an effort to cover their eyes.
Newly single Gaga has also been spotted with Goodfellas star Ray Liotta. The two had dinner back in early August, reports Page Six.
“They looked super chummy and like they know each other well,” an unnamed source told the outlet.
Gaga and Liotta left their table a few times throughout the night to smoke, according to the insider. They stayed at the West Village hotspot until 10:30 p.m. Gaga and Liotta previously starred in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which is probably why they were having dinner together.

Gaga’s rep has denied that the two were on a dinner date, explaining, “Ray is friends with Stefani [Gaga] and her dad.”
Meanwhile, Liotta has been dating his girlfriend, Catherine Hickland, on-and-off since 2011. Gaga shocked fans when she called off her engagement to Kinney in mid-July. The singer, who has dated the 35-year-old for five years, revealed on Instagram that she still hopes things work out between them.
“Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates. Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break. We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared. Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.”
Gaga has also been linked to her AHS: Hotel co-star Finn Wittrock because of their steamy onset chemistry, notes the Daily Mail. Rumors have swirled that Gaga allegedly cheated on Kinney with the happily married Wittrock. However, it appears that Gaga is good friends with most of the co-stars she works with. Nothing bad is ever written about her in the tabloids.
