and talking pretty much exclusively about how much they admired each other and were blessed to be creative collaborators. But, like, they also have a deep and burning love that will blossom into a real-life romance sooner than later, right?

The true status of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s relationship is quite possibly the biggest mystery of our time.

Here are just some of the questions keeping me up at night: Are Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in love? Well, friends, stans, Gooper detractors and fellow celebrity investigators alike, there’s been a development in the case that might bring us closer to an answer…or not.

“Even though there was nothing romantic between Bradley and Gaga, the noise was difficult for Irina to deal with," that source said.'s insider didn't rule out him and Gaga potentially dating someday.

"He has a huge and overwhelming connection to Gaga, but whether it becomes a real love story in their lives for all the world to see is premature, and it’s difficult to speculate at this sensitive time," that source weighed in on Gaga and Cooper's relationship prospects.

Gaga “isn’t going to get together” with Cooper after his breakup with Shayk, the source said.

In fact, Gaga “felt bad” about the romance rumors she and Cooper sparked while working on and promoting their film was told by a separate source that although Gaga and Cooper weren't actually involved, the rumors were hard on Shayk.

But, as is the tale of the tape, observers never truly allow the end of the line for such sagas subsequent to being confronted, and interactions continue to be presumed as ventures of a relationship that might not actually exist.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, however, will appear together in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Cooper will reprise his role as Rocket Raccoon, whilst Gaga has been brought on-board to voice Lylla Otter, Rocket’s love interest.

Its source also rejected the notion they would date right now, saying Cooper would not participate in that.

“There’s no way Gaga and Bradley will get together," that insider said.

We are all so grateful Bradley loved ‘Shallow,’ sang his heart out live, and truly the song would not be revered as it is without the brilliant film and moment Bradley created and the way he directed the moment and collaborated with us on how it would eventually be given to the world. Thank you HFPA, we are beyond grateful.” I didn’t get to say everything I wanted to say last night when we won, I was so overcome with emotion and of course wanted to share the mic with my co-writers. 📸 @gettyentertainment A post shared by Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) on She’s repeatedly used this quote when describing Cooper: “There can be 100 people in a room and 99 of them don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one and it just changes your whole life.”They bonded over the similarities between their backgrounds.
