Uh, did Lady Gaga's ex-fiance Christian Carino make a pass at Bradley Cooper's ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk?
The talent manager is making heads spin he was discovered "liking" one of the model's body-baring posts on Instagram this week, days fresh off her breakup from Cooper, who was alleged to have been intimate with the "Born This Way" singer. On Tuesday (June 11), eagle-eyed fans caught Carino leaving his trace of approval on a racy pic of Shayk in nothing but a swimsuit from a recent photo shoot in Iceland. (Proof below.)
Shayk and Cooper, who dated for four years and share daughter Lea De Seine together, had reportedly become "miserable together," as a source told PEOPLE their relationship was "hanging by a thread." It also didn't help that there were whispers of the 44-year-old actor and his Star Is Born co-star, Gaga, who broke off her engagement to Carino in February, had sparked a romance while promoting the award-winning film.
Gaga, however, has since denied speculations of a romance between her and her castmate.
“The rumors about Bradley and Gaga having a love affair didn’t help especially with his constant travels [promoting the film],” another insider explained to PEOPLE. “He has a huge and overwhelming connection to Gaga but whether it becomes a real love story in their lives for all the world to see is premature. And it’s difficult to speculate at this sensitive time.”
“Since Bradley and Irina have always been very private about their relationship few knew there was really for sure something going on,” the source said, while another added that Cooper became "emotionally absent" in his relationship with the 33-year-old while shooting the movie.
