What is going on with Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper? Are they friends? Are they simply co-parents, or is there something more going on? Judging by the pictures we saw last month of the 37-year-old Victoria’s Secret model and the 48-year-old A Star is Born actor looking very cozy on vacation (she posed for many topless photos on Instagram, while he also posed for a shirtless picture on a kayak in the same location, which she shared on her Instagram Story) we would have said that they were definitely a little more than friends.
However, insiders have confirmed to TMZ that Irina is still "romantically involved" with Gisele Bündchen's ex, Tom Brady, who she was rumored to have been dating over the past few months. So does that mean that she and Bradley, with whom she shares six-year-old daughter Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, are just friends? It certainly seems that way!
Irina Shayk And Tom Brady Are Still 'Romantically Involved'
TMZ wrote: "Sources with direct knowledge tell us the couple is, indeed, continuing to date and that they're still romantically involved." And US Weekly seemed to have similar intel too, as an insider reportedly told them: "Irina and Tom are still dating. Both of them are busy with families and their careers, but they enjoy each other’s company. Irina thinks Tom is a sweet, standup guy, and Tom feels at ease with Irina."
As for Irina's relationship with the Hangover actor, another insider added: "Tom has no idea if Irina is still seeing Bradley, but it’s really none of his business. Tom and Irina aren’t in a committed relationship, so she’s free to see anybody she likes."
Tom Brady And Irina Shayk Dating History
Last month, the NFL superstar and supermodel apparently spent 48 hours "holed up" inside London’s 5-star Twenty Two Hotel, with both leaving the luxury spot within minutes of each other. Tom had checked at the hotel at 2 AM Sunday morning after leaving Birmingham for the city Saturday night.
The media first caught wind of the stars' romance in late July, when paparazzi snapped them snuggling in Tom's car after the pair spent the evening together. In the photos, the former football player was seen touching Irina's face after, according to an onlooker, he had picked the model up at a hotel Friday afternoon, bringing her directly to his house. They exited Tom's home the following morning, when the tender picture was captured. The Daily Mail, rather saucily, made sure to mention that Irina was wearing the same clothes she had been spotted in the night before.

A source told the Daily Mail of the budding relationship, "Tom is really ecstatic that this is happening, he feels that they totally get each other, and he really finds her extremely interesting, entrepreneurial, and has a clever sense of humor that really appeals to everything he is all about...She is not just a fling, he really wants to make this work." Tom was famously married to supermodel Gisele Bündchen for 13 years, sharing 2 children (along with Tom's son from a previous relationship).
Irina had been with actor and director Bradley Cooper for 4 years before their breakup, sharing one daughter together. Of the new romance, the source said, "[Tom] always told himself after his divorce that he would only get involved with someone that a future could be made, someone he could eventually introduce to his kids. He really thinks very highly of her and where this relationship could go. He has zero worry with her, they seem to get each other and get along quite well."
It is reported that Irina's ex Bradley Cooper is "bothered" by the new relationship—a source alleged, "To say [Bradley] 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."
As for Tom's ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen, she is "unbothered" by the romance, according to an insider, "so long as [she or anyone Tom dates] treats their kids with love." The source added, "Tom and Gisele are divorced, and she's moved on. So long as Tom plays an active role in his kids' lives like he does and continues to the wonderful father he is, Gisele is happy for him and whoever he chooses to fall in love with." Gisele has recently been seen with jiu-jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente.
Though Tom was recently linked to Kim Kardashian, it seems that his eyes have only been for Irina since the A-list pair met at the wedding of a mutual friend back in May.
