After four years of dating, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have split, according to a report by People on Thursday night. The news comes after much speculation about the pair in the tabloids, which came to a head this week when Page Six reported that, according to an unnamed source, Cooper and Shayk’s relationship was “hanging by a thread.” (Amid the frenzy, Shayk made headlines when she was photographed without wearing an engagement ring, even though it’s never been confirmed that the couple was engaged.)
The 44-year-old actor, who had been dating the actress and model Suki Waterhouse, and the 33-year-old model, who had been dating the soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, are thought to have begun their relationship in the spring of 2015. They’ve made a point to keep things private since—so successfully that it made headlines when Shayk Instagrammed a cropped photo of herself featuring Cooper’s disembodied shoulders in April of 2016. Their daughter, whom Shayk gave birth to the following year, is now 2.
Still, the tabloids haven’t been alone in their speculation about Cooper and Shayk; it was rampant throughout the buildup and release of A Star Is Born, which Cooper directed and starred in, as the flailing country star Jackson Maine, opposite Lady Gaga, whom he cast as Ally, his pop prodigy and love interest. After a very affectionate press tour—and Gaga’s split from her now ex-fiancé, Christian Carino—the pair performed their hit single “Shallow” at the 2019 Academy Awards in February, sending the Internet into a frenzy when they appeared to almost kiss.
Gaga later refuted that there was any real romance behind their performance: “People saw love, and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see,” she told Jimmy Kimmel—later adding “fooled ya!”—in the days after the Oscars. “You know, I mean, this is a love song, ‘Shallow.’ The movie, A Star Is Born, it’s a love story.”
As for the Internet’s reaction, Gaga also told Kimmel—with an eye roll—that “social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the Internet.” As if to illustrate that point, it soon turned out that the reports that Shayk had unfollowed Gaga on Instagram after the performance were false; she hadn’t even been following Gaga in the first place. (Not that that stopped even more speculation about Cooper and Shayk’s relationship when the latter walked the red carpet of the 2019 Met Gala solo.)
Representatives for Cooper and Shayk did not respond to People’s requests for comments, and it seems doubtful that they’ll open up about their relationship any time soon. “Because my work requires me to be out there, I just decided my personal life will be quiet,” Shayk told Glamour UK, in February, of her approach to social media in particular. “That’s why it’s called personal, because it’s something for you and your family, and I feel happy with it.”

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have done their best to keep their relationship private since they began dating four years ago, over the course of which Shayk gave birth to their daughter, who’s now two.

In just a few short months, Bella Thorne has gone through not just one but two breakups this year. Two months after ending things with her ex-girlfriend Tana Mongeau in February, Thorne split from Mod Sun, her boyfriend of a year.

Demi Lovato has largely been staying out of the spotlight since she overdosed last summer, but in the past few months, she’s begun returning to the public eye, often in the company of Henri Levy, designer of the label Enfants Riches Déprimés.

If you didn’t know that Rita Ora and Andrew Garfield were reportedly dating, you’re not alone.

It took two public cheating scandals for 27-year-old Tristan Thompson and 34-year-old Khloé Kardashian to part ways. Less than a year after the first, which broke practically at the moment that Kardashian was giving back to their daughter, True, Thompson’s alleged infidelity again returned to the spotlight. (This latest instance is unfortunately even messier, involving the Kardashians’ 21-year-old comrade Jordyn Woods.)
Adriana Lima has been making quite a few life changes as of late: The past few months have seen her both officially retire from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and publicly make the decision to only take her clothes off if there’s a cause involved. In January, it turned out those changes had carried over to her personal life, too, following the announcement of her split from the Turkish writer and self-help guru Metin Hara, whom she’d been dating for the past year and a half. Her marriage to herself, on the other hand, appears to remain intact.
The Disney Channel star Peyton List and the Shameless actor Cameron Monaghan first came together in 2017, when filming the film Anthem of a Teenage Prophet in a rather remote section of Canada, at which point they began dating.
