All is seemingly not going well in Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper‘s romance with Gigi Hadid.
Reports making the rounds suggest that Cooper’s mom, Gloria Campano, is causing “tension” in their relationship as Cooper insists on spending more time with her.
As we reported, Cooper and Hadid became linked in October 2023. The model allegedly first accepted the family dynamics, but Campano’s “constant presence” is now steering their relationship towards a rocky road.
Bradley Cooper’s Mom Causing ‘Tension’ In His Romance With Gigi Hadid
The “Silver Linings Playbook” actor’s relationship with the supermodel has reportedly been experiencing some strain, as a source noted that Campano might be at the center of the issue.
According to a report, Cooper and his mom remain inseparable as the actor insists on spending so much time with her. Hadid was initially okay with their family dynamics, but sources claim she has now gotten fed up with Campano’s “constant presence.”
“Bradley’s relationship with Gigi is facing an unforeseen hurdle with Gloria, who insists on being a constant presence during their romantic outings,” the insiders said.
“While he’s made it clear that his mother holds a special place in his life, her interference is causing tension in the romance,” the source added.
The Breaking Point For Gigi Hadid Was At The Golden Globes
The insider went on to disclose that the straw that broke the camel’s back came last month at the Golden Globe Awards when Cooper invited his mom on a double date with them. Campano notably escorted the “A Star Is Born” actor to the Academy Awards in 2022 and 2019.
“While Gigi anticipated a private dinner after the awards ceremony, Gloria joined them once again, causing frustration for her,” a source told the publication.
“He makes it explicitly clear to his partners that Gloria will always be the most significant presence in his life, but as his relationship with Gigi deepens, the constant presence of his mother has become a point of contention!” the source added.
Another woman in Cooper’s life who allegedly doesn’t want them in a relationship is his ex, Irina Shayk, with whom he shares a daughter.
Insiders claim the supermodel was taken “by surprise” when the two lovebirds first got linked. Her issue is mainly the age difference between them. The source noted, “Irina is not happy with Bradley for dating another supermodel, but one who is younger.”
Bradley Cooper And Gigi Hadid Show PDA For The First Time
Despite the reported tensions, Cooper and Hadid were recently spotted packing on the PDA for the first time since their relationship began. According to the Daily Mail, the couple, known for keeping their personal lives low-key, was spotted indulging in some public displays of affection, walking hand-in-hand during a romantic stroll in London last week.
For the outing, the actor wore a peacoat and camouflage cargo pants and tied a black scarf around his neck to keep warm. He also wore a large, blue-on-blue, checkered hat styled with a pair of Nike’s Air Jordan I collaboration with Travis Scott.
The supermodel wore a dark leather bomber jacket and low-slung, camel-colored cashmere slacks. She beautifully styled her blonde locks into a fuss-free braid set at the back of her head and wore dark oval-shaped shades to protect her eyes from the sun’s rays. She completed her looks with a pair of black leather loafers and carried a small, black, leather Miu Miu handbag.
At some point during their getaway, Hadid placed her hands around Cooper’s waist.
Bradley Cooper Snubbed For Best Director At The Oscars
Their rare public outing came hot on the heels of the Oscars nominations, where Cooper faced a notable snub in the directing category for his critically acclaimed film, “Maestro.”
He managed to get nominated in the Best Lead Actor and Best Picture categories. However, the snub in the Best Director category is sure to leave a sour taste for him, as he made his feelings clear when he was snubbed for his directorial debut on “A Star is Born.” At the time, Cooper said he was “embarrassed” because he didn’t get the directorial nomination.
“I was embarrassed. I was at a coffee shop in New York City and looked down at my phone, and Nicole [Caruso, his publicist] told me congratulations and said what we had been nominated for,” the actor shared during Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations from Times Square.
“They didn’t even give me the bad news. I was embarrassed because I felt I hadn’t done my job.”
