Rumors of a romance between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have been swirling since their passionate Oscar performance of “Shallow” from A Star Is Born. Although these rumors died down after the performance — with news that the pair haven’t spent much time together since, per The Inquisitr — similar speculations have been sparked in the wake of recent reports claiming that Cooper’s relationship with Irina Shayk is nearing its end.
CafeMom reports that Cooper and Shayk are trying to make things work for their 2-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine. However, an insider claims that things aren’t going well.
“Because of their daughter, they keep trying. Things are not good. Neither one is happy. The relationship is hanging by a thread.”
On Gaga’s side, Us Weekly reports that she addressed her split from ex-fiancé Christian Carino at a June 2 concert in Las Vegas.
“Last time I sang this song, I had a ring on my finger, so it’ll be different this time,” she said at her show before performing “Someone to Watch Over Me.”
In March, a source also revealed that Gaga had a harder time moving on from the A Star Is Born project than Cooper, fueling rumors that she has feelings for the 44-year-old actor.
Given these recent developments on the romantic front, fans are already hoping that Gaga and Cooper turn their fictional romance into a real one.
“Well now he’s free to date Lady Gaga,” one user wrote on Twitter.
“Gaga will be jumping him soon,” another follower chimed in.
As The Inquisitr reported, Gaga used her February Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance to shoot down rumors that the pair are in love.
“And, yes, people saw love and, guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see.”
“This is a love song, ‘Shallow.’ The movie, A Star Is Born, it’s a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance,” she added.
The 33-year-old singer said that the chemistry fans saw between her and Cooper was needed to perform the song — pointing out that the project required them to remain connected for the duration of the performance. She also said that the performance was Cooper’s vision, and because of this, she let him take charge.
Gaga also used her Jimmy Kimmel Live! interview to touch on her Oscar win for Best Original Song. The singer said that cinching the award caused her to remember her humble beginnings in a New York City studio apartment, where she created music with a keyboard.
