Both Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are single now after breaking up with their respective partners. The two celebrities created quite a buzz with their Oscars performance, which sparked romance rumors. Sources now claim that the two do share a strong “connection,” but they are apparently not in love yet.

Rumors of a budding romance between Gaga and Cooper started when the two worked closely together on their film “A Star is Born.” The film, which was Cooper’s directorial debut, became a big hit and also earned Gaga her first Oscar.

With the two celebrities now single, rumor mills are churning about the possibility of them getting together. Sources close to the two stars told People that Cooper has “a huge and overwhelming connection to Gaga.” However, the insiders also added that the fans will have to wait and see if this connection evolves into love at a later stage.

At the moment, however, there is no love story between Cooper and Gaga. Sources have said that terming their relationship as being romantic at this stage would be “premature.”

Rumors about Cooper breaking up with his girlfriend because of Gaga are also not true, according to insiders. However, the sources added that the stories of a budding romance between Gaga and Cooper certainly didn’t help the latter mend his relationship with his then girlfriend Irina Shayk.

Gaga previously appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and clarified her relationship with Cooper. The singer and actress said that she and her director were only friends, and explained that the romantic Oscar performance was just a performance for the audience and nothing more.

While Cooper is busy with his career, Gaga is also focusing on her music and on having fun. She recently shared a video of her having some fun at Park MGM in Las Vegas.
