While Cooper and Gaga, 33, have denied romance rumors before, A Star Is Born fans still don’t buy it.
“He’s just totally spellbound by her and thinks she’s the wisest, coolest and most worldly person on the planet. Gaga’s in a tough spot because she doesn’t want to rub Irina’s nose in it. But still, she does adore Bradley so she’s happy to take his calls,” added the source.

he singer then added fuel to the fire by jumping on stage at the Grammys to perform her emotional song, “Shallow,” with Cooper. Shayk, 33, clapped as she sat with the rest of the A-lister crowd, but fans doubted she was very happy about it.
Cooper and Shayk — who share 2-year-old daughter Lea De Seine — called it quits earlier this month after four years together.
