Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga sent fans into a frenzy when they performed a steamy rendition of “Shallow” at the Oscars in February. The pair starred together in the hit film “A Star Is Born,” and since then, people can’t seem to get over the chemistry between them.
But not everyone is eager for them to get together. Cooper split with his long term girlfriend Irina Shayk in June, with whom he has a daughter Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper. And since then, trolls have descended on Gaga’s Instagram, demanding she “give Bradley Cooper back” to Shayk.
According to the Daily Mail, the majority of the comments come from Russian accounts, where Shayk is from.
“You took not only a man from Shayk, but also followers from Buzova,” wrote one person, referencing the Russian personality star Olga Buzova.
“Gaga, take Petrosyan, he was already divorced!” joked another, referring to the Armenian-Italian kickboxer Giorgio Petrosyan.
“We have returned the Crimea, we will return Bradley too,” one comment said, while others compared the two stars. For example, “our Irina’s legs are still longer,” and “Irina Shayk forever!”
“You can not come to Russia, b—-!” warned one troll.
Some people just seem to be along for the ride, and several unrelated, seemingly random conversations are going on within Gaga’s comment section, entirely in Russian.
“I have no idea how I got here and what I’m doing here, but the Russians are here, I’m here,” one said.
“Guys, what series to watch in the evening? Games of thrones are over, who is watching now?” asked another in Russian.
One person simply declared: “Today is my birthday!”
Cooper and Gaga have denied rumours they were attracted to each other several times. Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Gaga said she and Cooper gave them a good show at the Oscars.
“Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see,” she said.
“I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!”
