A FEUD has erupted between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend Irina Shayk
But what is it about? And what happened at the Oscars? Here’s the lowdown…
Irina Shayk (middle) is in a feud with Lady Gaga – her boyfriend Bradley Cooper’s co-star in A Star Is Born
Why are Lady Gaga and Irina Shayk feuding?
It all started at the Oscars 2019 on February 24, 2019 when Lady Gaga and Irina Shayk’s boyfriend Bradley Cooper performed a steamy duet.
Bradley and Lady Gaga’s rendition of Shallow from their film A Star Is Born sparked rumours about the chemistry between them.
During the performance the pair looked longingly at each other and caused many to question if they were “more than friends”.
After they had performed the song – which won the Oscar for Best Original Song – Irina sat between them in the front row of the ceremony.

How did Lady Gaga and Irina act towards each other at the Oscars?
After the Oscars duet, Irina was seen with a fixed smile before giving Gaga a hug.
But body language expert Judi James told The Sun their embrace may not have been as friendly as it seemed.
She said: “The hugs and embraces between Gaga and Irina look awkward and odd.
“Gaga placed both gloved hands on Irina’s shoulders rather than on her arms in what might have looked like an act of affection. But she turned her head to the left as she ‘kissed’, just as Irina turned her face to her left in a parting of the cheeks.
“Irina’s hands came up to clasp Gaga’s lower arm and the result looked like mutual restraining gestures.”

The day after the Oscars on February 25, 2019 Lady Gaga broke her silence on THAT duet with Bradley Cooper calling him a “true friend” and “artistic genius”.
The singer took to Instagram to post a picture of her performance with Bradley.
She wrote: “Nothing could be more special than sharing this moment at the Oscars with a true friend and artistic genius.”

What has Irina said about the feud?
Russian swimwear model Irina has yet to comment on the feud but had already unfollowed Gaga on social media after an earlier flirty exchange prior to the ceremony.
Also the day after the Oscars, The Sun Online revealed that Irina is fed up of reading speculative stories about Bradley and Gaga being more than just friends.
A source said: “The stories about Irina being sick of Gaga have some truth to them – it’s not that she dislikes Gaga or is jealous of her, but she’s sick of the constant stories about her ‘close’ relationship to Bradley.
“She’s no stranger to cheating rumours – she dated Cristiano Ronaldo after all – but it’s been a long publicity campaign and she’s ready for it to end.
“She’s actually thrilled at how successful the movie has been and really wanted to go to the Oscars.
“It’s undeniable that Gaga and Bradley have chemistry – they have a lot more in common that Irina and Bradley – but that’s why the movie worked.”

What has Lady Gaga previously said about working with Bradley Cooper?
Rumours of Gaga and Bradley being “more than friends” started in 2018 when the pair took to the road to promote their film A Star Is Born.
Speaking at the Venice Film Festival in September 2018 about working with Bradley she said: “There could be 100 people in the room and 99 don’t believe in you, just one—and it was him.”
Gaga felt so strongly about the actor’s faith in her abilities, that she repeated this sentiment multiple times across the movie’s press tour, turning it into a viral meme in the process.
