It appears Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse, might still be an item despite multiple rumors of an impending split.
According to a report from ShowbizSpy.com, Waterhouse, Cooper’s 22-year-old model girlfriend of one year, was spotted walking the “American Hustle” actor’s dog in Los Angeles earlier this week. While Cooper, 39, was nowhere to be seen, Waterhouse’s outing with the film star’s beloved pooch Charlotte has sparked rumors that the duo are reconciling following rumors of their alleged breakup.
“We had heard rumors that Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse might have been having some trouble in paradise, but those rumors left our minds as soon as we saw cute pics of Suki walking Cooper's pooper, Charlotte the dog!” reported PerezHilton.com. “Would someone walk the dog of their lover if they were nearing a split? Maybe, but most likely not. … Glad there’s no trouble in paradise,” speculated the gossip site, also sharing photos of Waterhouse’s West Coast outing.
Star Magazine was the first to publish claims of Cooper and Waterhouse’s rumored split in March, just weeks after the couple's highly publicized front-row appearance at the 86th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on March 2. According to the tabloid, Waterhouse was planning to dump her award-winning beau over their 17-year age difference, despite previous reports that their generational gap wasn't an issue.
“Suki is keeping her distance," an insider told the magazine, also revealing that Cooper’s desire to start a family was another factor in the split. "She thought it was better to end things now rather than letting them drag on,” added the source.
According to a more recent report, the couple are rumored to have called it quits due to Cooper’s recent reconciliation with his former flame, actress Renee Zellweger, 44.“Suki was getting fed up with Bradley vanishing for hours at a time to talk to Renee,” a source revealed to The National Enquirer last month, adding that Cooper’s willingness to help his former girlfriend of two years and “Case 39“ co-star reboot her film career was the final straw for the U.K. fashion model. “She’s decided it’s time to move on,” said a source.
