Bradley Cooper’s ex-wife Jennifer Esposito had something to say amid questions about the nature of the actor’s relationship with Lady Gaga following their intimate duet at the Oscars on Sunday night (24Feb19).
The pair raised eyebrows as they took to the stage to perform their A Star is Born track Shallow, and looked close to kissing at one point as the song came to an end.
Despite the fact Bradley’s long-term girlfriend, and mother of his daughter, Irina Shayk was sitting front row to watch the performance, many people have been left wondering whether or not he and Gaga are more than just friends.
Comedian David Spade was one of those people, and took to Twitter to share a screenshot of the pair’s performance, writing alongside it: “Is there any chance these 2 aren’t f**king?”
NCIS star Jennifer, who was married to Bradley for a few months in 2006, was quick to comment, and chose just one word as her reply, writing “Ha”.
Her remark comes as Gaga took to her own Instagram page to share a picture of herself and Bradley at the piano during their performance, captioning it: “Nothing could be more special than sharing this moment at the Oscars with a true friend and artistic genius.”
Following the performance, Gaga was seen sharing a hug with Irina, who sat between the singer and her boyfriend during the ceremony. And a source close to the Russian model, who shares daughter Lea with Bradley, told Us Weekly that she’s unconcerned about the rumours surrounding the actor and Gaga.
“Irina knows that Bradley and Gaga are artists,” the insider said. “It’s a non-issue for her. They were in character putting on an Oscar performance.”
