IRINA Shayk and Bradley Cooper were once one of Hollywood’s most coveted power couples.
Irina has been causing a stir on social media after it was reported that she’s dating Kanye West following his split from Kim Kardashian.

Why did Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper break up?
Irina 34, and Bradley, 45, split in June 2019 after four years together.
It’s unclear why the pair broke up, but fans have speculated as to why their relationship broke down.
In February last year, Bradley’s steamy Oscars performance with his A Star Is Born co-star, Lady Gaga, caused shockwaves as it was speculated that the two were in a secret relationship.
Irina has even accused the actor of having an affair with the singer, according to US sources.

The two share custody of their two-year-old daughter Lea De Seine.
The exes are thought to each have custody 50 per cent of the time and have agreed to base themselves in New York City.
Opening up about life post-Bradley, Irina admitted she feels like she’s on “new ground” following their separation.
She told British Vogue: “I think in all good relationships you bring your best and your worst – it’s just the nature of a human being. Two great people don’t have to make a good couple.
“I think we’ve been very lucky to experience what we had with each other. Life without B is new ground.”
The runway star admitted that sometimes being a single parent makes her feel like she’s “falling apart” as she tries to balance it all.

What did Lady Gaga say about the couple’s split?
After being heckled on stage by fans asking where Bradley Cooper was, Lady Gaga hit back at her fans at a concert in Las Vegas in 2019.
Just days after Bradley and Irina’s split, the singer was performing in Las Vegas when she lost her temper with the taunts, amid speculation that she played a part in her A Star Is Born co-star’s break-up.
Before performing the film’s track Shallow, she told the crowd: “And one more thing, be kind or f**k off.”
Despite stirring controversy after their steamy performance of the hit song at the Oscars in February, Gaga has always insisted she is just good friends with Bradley.
Referring to their sensual Oscars performance, she said: “Yes, people saw love.
“And guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see.”
Are Irina Shayk and Kanye West dating?
Irina Shayk and Kanye West have been stirring up dating rumors on social media.
News of them being an item surfaced after West and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February of 2021.
The pair have reportedly been dating since May of 2021.
The pair were spotted vacationing in the South of France, according to TMZ.
The outlet reported that they walked through manicured gardens while chatting and laughed as they strolled around the grounds of their boutique hotel.
Irina and Kanye were believed to have been joined by a group of friends as they took in the rural sights.
The following day they were spotted again – this time heading to their luxury villa, before hanging out by some sunloungers.
Kanye and Irina were first romantically linked late last month by US gossip site DeuxMoi, who claimed they were “dating.”
