Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s “flirty friendship” is not upsetting his girlfriend Irina Shayk, despite rumors. Gossip Cop debunked reports stating that Shayk “is rattled” by the close bond between the two.

Cooper and Gaga became good friends while making their new movie “A Star Is Born." Woman’s Day Australia alleges this friendship has not gone down well with the Russian supermodel. Shayk is reportedly disturbed after seeing photos of Gaga kissing Copper on the cheek at the film’s London premiere last month. The magazine quotes an insider saying, “This is testing Irina’s patience in a big way.”

“Bradley and Gaga insist they’re just good friends, but they’ve become really close. Gaga’s known for being a flirt and that’s got to be frustrating for Irina,” the alleged insider said, adding Shayk is “annoyed and has had enough!”

Woman’s Day New Zealand claimed that Cooper and Shayk have been “fighting a lot” lately and were only staying together for their 19-month-old daughter, Lea. The magazine too quoted an insider saying “They don’t want to split, but Bradley is growing tired of Irina’s jealousy. They’re seeking professional help. But so far things aren’t looking good.”

The report comes a week after Gossip Cop debunked a story by In Touch magazine which stated that the couple is headed for a split over the actor’s friendship with Gaga. The magazine had quoted an insider saying their friendship had caused a rift between Cooper and Shayk and the model is “jealous of their close bond and feels like Bradley spends more time raving about Lady Gaga than he does about her.”

Gossip Cop spoke to a source close to the actor who dismissed all the rumors and said there was no truth in the claims. Though Cooper and Gaga have a lot of mutual admiration for each other, both personally and professionally, their bond is based on mutual admiration and respect.

Meanwhile, Cooper and Shayk were spotted on a morning stroll with their daughter in New York City over the weekend, and looked very happy and relaxed together. Pictures of the two showed them walking arm in arm with big smiles on their face.

The two started dating in early 2015 and made their red carpet debut at a Paris Fashion Week party in March 2016. They welcomed their daughter exactly a year later in March 2017.

Lady Gaga, on the other hand, is engaged to Christian Carino. Though she was long rumored to have been engaged, she publicly addressed Carino as her fiancé during a speech at Elle’s 25th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration last week.
