Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are going through a rough patch right now, and many believe that they are calling it quits soon. With Cooper coming onto the market, fans could not help but think that his crazy onscreen chemistry with Lady Gaga has something to do with Cooper and Shayk’s relationship troubles.

After their hyperventilating Oscar performance, Gaga and Cooper made everyone wish they could actually be together. While fans wanted them to be in love so badly, both actors maintained that they were just actors and friends. At the time, Cooper was still in a relationship with Shayk, and Shayk was right there at the audience, beaming and clapping with the rest of the crowd.

Shayk is a supermodel and the mother of Cooper’s adorable daughter. They have been together for three years now, but recent reports suggest that their relationship is on the rocks. “Things are not good,” a source said. “Neither one is happy. The relationship is hanging by a thread,” the source added.

It remains unknown how Cooper and Shayk got to this point. It is interesting to note, however, that their relationship troubles came just a few months after Cooper and Gaga were embroiled in relationship rumors. People saw the chemistry they had onscreen, and they considered their lovely Oscar performance back in February as a public declaration of their love.

Through it all, both Cooper and Lady Gaga denied the rumors and said that they were only onscreen partners. “Yes, people saw love and guess what, that’s what we wanted you to see,” Lady Gaga said after their Oscar performance. “When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel,” she said.

Cooper also denied being in a secret romance with Lady Gaga, saying that he “hasn’t spent any time” with his co-star since their duet at the award show. That’s quite understandable, considering that he was still with Shayk back then.

Now that their relationship is falling on its last legs, however, it is much easier to imagine Cooper finally hooking up with Lady Gaga. After all, Lady Gaga is also single right now and is not dating anyone.
