Irina Shayk & Bradley Cooper Fuel Reconciliation Speculation At Premiere Of His New Movie

Irina Shayk supported ex Bradley Cooper at the premiere of his film 'Nightmare Alley,' sparking speculation that the two are back together.

Irina Shayk gave a pinstripe suit a sexy update at the premiere of ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper’s film Nightmare Alley in New York on Wednesday, Dec. 1. The model, 35, paired the black suit with plunging leather suspenders as she posed on the black carpet, once again sparking speculation that she and Bradley, 46, have reconciled following their 2019 split.

The model slicked her hair back and opted for a bold red lip for the evening, while Bradley — whom she shares daughter Lea, 4, with — looked dapper in a black suit. The former couple did not pose together at the premiere of the film, a 1940s crime thriller about an ambitious carny who has the talent of manipulating others. The movie is based on the 1946 novel of the same name by William Lindsay Gresham.

Bradley leads the ensemble cast as Stanton Carlisle. Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, and Richard Jenkins also star in the Guillermo del Toro-directed rendition, which serves as a remake of sorts of the 1947 film adaptation. At the premiere on Wednesday evening, Bradley told Entertainment Tonight that having Irina there was “very special.”

It’s unclear if the couple, who dated for four years prior to their split, are back together. However, the premiere isn’t the first time they’ve sparked reconciliation rumors. Ahead of Thanksgiving, Bradley and Irina were spotted strolling arm-in-arm in New York in mid-November. Following the sighting, a source told Page Six that the co-parents celebrated Thanksgiving together with Lea.

According to the outlet, the former couple and their daughter went to the ballet together for The Nutcracker, reportedly meeting up with Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Schulman. “They looked very happy,” the source said. “Everybody was smiling and giggling.”

While generally private about her relationship and family, Irina offered rare comments about co-parenting while on the digital cover of ELLE‘s March issue: “I never understood the term co-parenting. When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad.” Irina also called Bradley the “most amazing dad.”
