The long-standing rumor about the split between the model Irina Shayk and the Hollywood superstar Bradley Cooper is now a fact, People magazine confirmed.
According to an internal source familiar with the matter, they were no longer happy together, but they have been struggling to fix their relationship for the sake of their daughter.
It did not work out as expected, the People's source continued, highlighting that the couple decided to take some space apart from each other. Reportedly, the Russia-born model moved out of $6.55 million Pacific Paradise mansion along with their two-year-old daughter Lea De Seine.
The Oscar-nominated actor and the supermodel started dating in 2015. At that time, they both had come out of long-term relationships.
Irina Shayk had spent five years with the Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. They broke up in January 2015, after rumors of Ronaldo's infidelity came out. Bradley Cooper had just split with fellow-actress Suki Waterhouse after spending two years together.
The couple sparked engagement rumors in 2016 when Irina was spotted wearing a large emerald ring. She kept wearing it for over two years, but no changes in their relationship status had been officially confirmed.
Since their first day together, they have always kept their personal life private and avoided interviews and public appearances.
In an interview with Glamour UK in February 2019, Irina Shayk once again admitted she would very much prefer to keep her love life private. At the same time, Bradley Cooper joined Oprah Winfrey for a talk during SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square. He did not share any private details but said that having a family ''changed everything.''
The first hint of scandal between them emerged at the Oscars this year. Bradley Cooper performed ''Shallow'' along with Lady Gaga during the ceremony. The chemistry on stage between them sparked affair rumors.
Irina Shayk and Lady Gaga quickly brushed them away. For example, Irina hugged Lady Gaga during the show. In turn, Lady Gaga told Jimmy Kimmel that she and Bradley were acting on stage, that is why many people saw love.
After the massive speculations around their relationship during the busy awards season, Bradley Cooper reportedly took some quality time off to be with his family.
According to People magazine, it did not work out well, and the Russian supermodel and the Hollywood actor split up. They remain in an amicable relationship and will share custody of their daughter Lea De Seine, the source told People.
The couple's spokespersons have not yet confirmed the news.
