Just hours after The Daily Mail published a dramatic report from a source stating that Bradley Cooper is spiraling over his ex Irina Shayk dating Tom Brady, another source clarified to Page Six that Cooper actually isn’t sweating it.
“Right now, he is taking a wait-and-see attitude,” the source said. “[Brady and Shayk] didn’t declare their love. This could be over in two, three weeks. He isn’t freaked out.” That source added that Cooper was well aware Shayk, the mother of his 6-year-old daughter Lea, would eventually date other people. “He knew she was going to meet someone,” the source said.
The details from Page Six‘s insider stand in stark contrast to what a source told Daily Mail this week.
The Mail’s source said, “To say he is not bothered by this would be a lie. He has been on and off and on with Irina and he has so much love for her. She is the mother to his girl and they are his two favorite women in the world. He feels that, for the first time, she met someone in Tom that would take her heart away from him forever.”
The source described Cooper as “conflicted” since he himself had “dated other women” since their  breakup. “Tom is very capable of being a devoted husband and parent and husband,” that source added. “This is what gets to Bradley.”
Shayk and Cooper last sparked speculation that they could be exploring a reconciliation in September 2022.
