After Jason Momoa, another male celebrity who is getting body shamed is Bradley Cooper. Unexpected, right? The Hangover star has always been a hit among the ladies, but not anymore. People are actually slamming him for how he looks now after his breakup with superhit model, Irina Shayk.
Masses started breathing hate toward the 44-year-old last year when news of his split with his baby mama came out. Many believed that the couple had decided to go their separate ways because of Bradley’s alleged romance with Lady Gaga. However, if there was any romance between the two A Star Is Born co-stars, it surely didn’t bloom.
Today when Just Jared shared a shot of the actor, people couldn’t help but notice that his body was not as ripped anymore. With that, the gates to the flood of body shaming criticizers was opened. “Getting a dad bod,” said one comment while another read, “Dad bod coming through.” In the picture, Bradley can be seen holding his cellphone to his ear with his hair swept back.
Some people also brought up Irina in their comments. One person wrote, “He let go Irina and began to look like this. His bad.” Another typed, “Irina is like yup. I am good with my single situation lol.” Clearly, Bradley and Irina’s once-shippers have not moved on.
The audience never got a solid reason why these two broke up despite being together for four years and sharing a daughter, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper. Many pointed fingers at Gaga for her intense chemistry with Bradley Cooper didn’t end with the movie. In fact, it could be seen at promotional events and tours too.
Perhaps Cooper and Gaga’s performance of Shallow at the Oscars was a tipping point as not only did they appear to be in love, but they were about to kiss onstage too. Following that scandalous performance, clarifications came saying that the actors were just merely acting at the Oscars.
Irina has remained silent regarding the matter, ever the classy lady. Both Lea’s parents were and are super private about their personal life. However, some reports did say that what lead to their split was Bradley’s lack of emotional attention when shooting for and making his directorial debut with ASIB.
An insider told People, “Bradley was emotionally absent during the long time filming A Star Is Born.” He further added, “They tried to save the relationship, but it had changed. Since Bradley and Irina have always been very private about their relationship, few knew there was really for sure something going on.”
While the workload that Bradley was dealing with might have made him drift away from Irina, who was the one to initiate their breakup, there was something Gaga about it all. Rumors of Cooper and Gaga’s attraction fueled the burning fire even though multiple times it was reported that the songstress had nothing to do with the couple’s split.
“Even though there was nothing romantic between Bradley and Gaga, the noise was difficult for Irina to deal with,” a source told US Weekly. People are now wondering if Bradley Cooper’s dad bod has something to do with his broken heart from his split with ex. Oddly though, at the same time of Irina and Cooper’s split, Lady Gaga also ended her relationship with Christian Carino.
