In case you've missed it, relationship rumors have been swirling after Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk were spotted vacationing together. But although it may look like the two are officially back together three full years after ending their four-year relationship, a source recently told E News that it's not what it looks like.
"They are co-parenting and get along well for the sake of their daughter [Lea]," the source said. "They do things as a family and it's going well."
Just to recap real fast, Irina apparently dumped BCoops because “she didn’t feel she was getting the level of commitment she wanted, and the endless fighting made their life unbearable.” But recently, they went on vacation looking all kinds of cozy, which has made the internet collectively go ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
So, wondering how we got here? Let’s go back, back to the beginning, but not before I force everyone to appreciate this extremely relevant meme:

It’s just a piece of my inner self that I don’t want to give away."
