Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have been caught up in romance rumors since they starred together in “A Star Is Born.” Although it may seem that the two have distanced themselves from each other since Cooper’s split from longtime partner Irina Shayk, they have reportedly remained in each other’s lives.

Rumors linking Lady Gaga to her co-star started around six months ago after the female singer split from her fiancé, Christian Carino. Her steamy Oscar performance with Cooper led to speculations that Cooper might be the reason Lady Gaga called it quits with Carino, but the singer denied the rumors. After months of being romantically linked to Lady Gaga, Cooper confirmed that it’s over between him and Shayk. 

While Cooper has repeatedly denied Lady Gaga’s involvement in their breakup, fans can’t help but believe that he and Lady Gaga are secretly in a relationship. Back in June, fans spotted Lady Gaga among the crowd when Cooper performed with the Philadelphia Orchestra. The day after the performance, Cooper flew to New York and was spotted in Brooklyn, just a stone’s throw away from the Apollo Theater where Lady Gaga just had a show.

Despite being distant from each other in recent weeks, Lady Gaga and Cooper are said to have secretly held secret meetings just so they could see each other. A source recently revealed that the former co-stars still catch up when their schedules permit.

“Gaga and Bradley have been catching up when they can, with him visiting her Malibu compound, which isn’t far from the home he owns in Pacific Palisades,” the source reportedly said. “They want to stay in one another’s lives no matter what,” the source added.

The source claimed that while Lady Gaga and Cooper have been meeting in secret, their relationship is not yet official. According to the source, the two stars are still taking their time and establishing the boundaries of their friendship following Cooper and Shayk’s split.

It is said that they want to stay out of the public eye to avoid any controversy, especially since Cooper and Shayk’s breakup is still hot in the news. “While it is too soon to say what will happen between them or not, it’s safe to say that they remain in one another’s lives, perhaps now more than ever,” the source said.
