Are Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk headed for the next Taylor Swift/Calvin Harris-style brutally public celebrity breakup? Some people on Twitter sure think so.
At Wimbledon this past weekend, Cooper and Shayk were briefly shown on screen in what Twitter user Micah Hart called “a fight.” Here’s the tweet that went viral and broke this story to the world:
It’s hard to tell much from seven seconds, but Shayk is clearly wiping away tears, and Cooper is clearly not paying much attention to her. At first glance? Definitely looks like a lovers’ quarrel. You know what that means: burn it all down! Run with the headline, “Cooper and Shayk Are Donezo!” Start fantasizing about your shot at a relationship with one or both of them, whatever you’re into!
Not so fast. TMZ reported that sources close to the situation said Shayk was just “battling allergies.” Plus, according to other photos released shortly after this story broke, Cooper was actually talking to retired tennis star Stefan Edberg (who was sitting on the other side of Shayk but not visible onscreen), and not giving his girlfriend the cold shoulder.
Oh yeah, and there were also these photos released of the couple taken shortly after the “fight,” in which everything appears to be hunky-dory:
That doesn’t look like trouble in paradise to me. But the real truth is something probably only Cooper and Shayk know, and I’m not nearly connected enough to interview them, so we’ll just have to live with not knowing for now.
What do you think? Were Cooper and Shayk fighting, or is this a whole lot of sound and fury signifying nothing? Let us know in the comments below or @WhatsTrending on Twitter!
