Bradley Cooper has two new movies coming out right in time for awards season (Nightmare Alley and Licorice Pizza—the latter of which has me craving both licorice *and* pizza), which means he’ll be spending the next couple months posing on various red carpets. And for those of you wondering, it looks like Bradley will be walking said red carpets solo, which is noteworthy only because the last time Bradley was in the throws of Oscar buzz, it was when the world collectively decided he and Lady Gaga were dating (they weren’t) even though he was with Irina Shayk. Which brings us to Bradley’s relationship history, a long and somewhat dramatic journey full of famous people that you should probably get reacquainted with. Behold:

Irina and Bradley got together in 2015 and welcomed their adorable daughter, Lea, a couple years later in 2017. And while they’re currently on great terms, their 2019 breakup went down amid a ton of (false!) rumors about Bradley Cooper having an affair with Lady Gaga thanks to their undeniable chemistry both *in* A Star Is Born and *on* the A Star Is Born press tour. Ahem:
For what it’s worth, Gaga completely denied the rumors, telling Jimmy Kimmel, “First of all, social media, quite frankly is the toilet of the internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see. This is a love song. The movie A Star Is Born is a love story. It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time… Look, I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel. “I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job… fooled ya!”
Because you’re wondering, nope, the Gaga rumors weren’t the reason Irina and Bradley split—though their breakup did come right after the rumors’ peak. As a source explained to Entertainment Tonight, “Recently, Irina decided enough is enough. She didn’t feel she was getting the level of commitment she wanted, and the endless fighting made their life unbearable. They are very different people, and once they realized it was the baby that was holding them together, it was time to call it quits.”
