Lady Gaga shoots down rumors of love affair with Bradley Cooper after THAT Oscar’s performance

Lady Gaga finally addressed rumors that she and Bradley Cooper had developed an off-stage relationship while working on ‘A Star is Born,’ rolling her eyes at the thought., 

The superstar scoffed at the suggestion during a Wednesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel, proclaiming social media as being the ‘toilet of the internet’ that has been ‘abysmal’ to pop culture.

‘That is what we wanted you to see,’ she declared when asked about the pair’s intense chemistry, adding that Cooper adamantly directed all the musical numbers. ‘This is a long song. It is a love story and we worked so hard.’

She later added: ‘I knew he had the vision for how it should go.’

Gaga described how even for the racy Sunday performance at the Oscars, Cooper was specific with how he wanted the stage and audience lighting to look. 

The songstress then further dispelled rumors by highlighting her previous work with musical legend Tony Bennett. 

‘I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for the last three years it what you do when you sing love songs,’ said Gaga. 

Sources familiar with the film and its surrounding hoopla have indicated that Cooper intentionally wanted the pair to sizzle on and off the screen.  

But the close relationship did become the talk of Hollywood, with many speculating that it played into Gaga’s split from fiancé, Christian Carino. 

‘Hollywood is buzzing that Gaga fell for Bradley during preproduction and filming, creating the intense emotional energy you see on-screen and at the Oscars,’ a source explained to Page Six. ‘He wanted an authentic love story on-screen.’

'That is what we wanted you to see,' she declared about the intense performances. 'This is a long song. It is a love story and we worked so hard'

They added that Gaga is a ‘vulnerable’ actress. 

At the CAA party on Friday, the two were said to have been ‘very, very close . . . even though her ex-fiancé [Carino] was there — in the same room — but keeping his distance. Gaga and Bradley were cozied up on a sofa . . . [They] were inseparable, and people definitely thought it was weird.’ 

‘There was no sign of his model girlfriend,’ a different source added.

But another source asserted: ‘Bradley and Gaga were both there and hanging out, but they were not ‘together.’ 

Sources close to the stars have denied the off-stage relationship, with one person stating: ‘Some in the industry believe Bradley may be working the situation for public attention. 

‘Gaga is an artist; she naturally goes into character to perform a song from the movie,’ the source continued. 

Another added: ‘Bradley and Gaga wanted to create a performance that was a bit of an homage to the film . . . to emulate the emotion that people felt while watching the film.’ 

Those familiar with Irina Shayk claim that she 'is not happy with all the attention that the performance onstage generated. But she feels confident that nothing ever happened between Gaga and Bradley'

Others familiar with Irina Shayk claim that she ‘is not happy with all the attention that the performance onstage generated. But she feels confident that nothing ever happened between Gaga and Bradley. They had chemistry during the movie shoot. But that’s that. She feels confident in her relationship for now.’  

In photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com the two stars were seen embracing and whispering to each other at the Warner Bros Pictures Post-Oscar Party on Sunday.

The celebrities had already set tongues wagging during Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards, when they performed a sensual rendition of their duet Shallow.

As the number came to an end they gazed lovingly into each other’s eyes despite Bradley’s Russian model girlfriend Irina Shayk watching just feet away.

And these behind the scenes photos will provide more proof for fans who are convinced newly single hitmaker Gaga has her sights set on her A Star Is Born co-star.

A source at the party told DailyMail.com that Gaga, who won an Oscar for Best Song, made a ‘beeline’ for Cooper as soon as she arrived.

‘Bradley and Irina and his mom arrived first and Gaga arrived after 10pm carrying her Oscar,’ the source said.

‘She made a beeline for Bradley, they were all over each other, they embraced and had an intimate chat, they couldn’t get enough of each other.

‘They were hugging and leaning in close to talk in each other’s ear.

‘She hung out with Bradley for almost two hours. Irina was there but she was sat on a couch in the shadows at the back of the room, she didn’t look impressed.

‘Bradley spent more time with Gaga than her that’s for sure.

‘He held court, he didn’t move from his area and Gaga was by his side the whole time.’

Gaga’s appearance at the Oscars was the first time she had been seen since ending her engagement to fiance Christian Carino, 50.

While Gaga walked the red carpet alone, Bradley, 44, arrived hand-in-hand with his mother Gloria and Irina, the mother of his one-year-old daughter Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper.

In the press room afterwards Gaga revealed Cooper offered her advice at their last rehearsal the day before their emotional performance on Sunday.

She revealed what he told her backstage in the press room after the show.

‘Let’s drop a little bit of joy,’ he told the blonde beauty.

The pair’s electrifying chemistry sent Twitter users into a frenzy on Sunday night, with one user telling the pair to ‘get a room’.
