Back in summer 2022, Bradley Cooper reportedly began dating Huma Abedin—his first public (although…they were never actually totally public 👀) relationship since his breakup with Irina Shayk in 2019. You know, back when everyone was convinced he was secretly dating Lady Gaga (he wasn’t!) thanks to A Star Is Born? What a time!

Clearly, we have a lot to go over—which brings us to the Maestro star's relationship history, a long and somewhat dramatic journey full of famous people you should probably get reacquainted with. Especially because he's dating Gigi Hadid after her on-again, off-again fling with Leonardo DiCaprio. Behold, Bradley Cooper's full dating history.

Bradley has been romantically linked with none other than Gigi Hadid since October 2023. The pair were first spotted getting into the same SUV after a dinner date at Via Carota in New York City. A few days later, they were photographed riding in the same car and reportedly spent time at Taylor Swift's Rhode Island home.

Bradley's ex, Irina Shayk, reportedly introduced the pair per The Messenger. "Gigi was introduced to Bradley through Irina and their mutual friends in the industry. Gigi and Irina have been close over the years while working together, and Gigi and Bradley have hung out before, but it has always been friendly in social settings," the report revealed. "Gigi and Bradley were in touch recently and were bonding over their daughters, when Bradley asked her out."

As for the nature of their 'ship, an insider told People that Bradley and Gigi "are having fun."

"I don’t see anything serious happening right away, if at all. It appears super casual now, but they both have kids, big careers, busy lives and understand what life is like in these circles. It’s cute … and there is an attraction," the source adds. They've also been photographed a ton together since then. Love this for them!

July 2022–August 2022: Huma Abedin

According to Page Six, Bradley and Huma started dating after being set up by Vogue editor Anna Wintour. “Anna definitely played matchmaker,” a source told the outlet. “She’s BFFs with Bradley and adores Huma.”

The pair had been dating for a few months, with a source even noting that “they are perfect for each other. They’re both into power and politics and human affairs.” And even a few months later in October of that year, Huma got candid about her dating history and recalled her experience with relationships while coming up in politics. TL;DR:For a while, she actually put romance on hold, however her outlook in recent years has changed. Interesting! “I put dating in the category of one of the things I did not allow myself to be open to for many years,” she confessed to the Wall Street Journal Magazine. “Particularly when I was living in New York in the early 2000s.”

“I was invited to so many dinner parties and there’d be all these women I found to be much smarter, much more beautiful, much more everything. Here I was, this serious little political aide in a suit,” she continued. “I never expected to be the woman that any of these men left with and I was OK with that because to allow for that kind of relationship would mean that I would have less time to work. Less time to focus.” Oh, how the tables turn!

Per People, Bradley allegedly rekindled his relationship with Irina Shayk in August 2022, which caused his connection with Huma to fizzle out.

Almost nothing is known about this brief relationship, and honestly, it was only ever revealed because Bradley started dating Huma. As Us Weekly put it, “He was casually dating Dianna when he and Huma started, but it wasn’t serious with Dianna yet.” Noted!

2015–2019: Irina Shayk

Irina and Bradley got together in 2015 and welcomed their adorable daughter, Lea, a couple of years later in 2017. And while they’re currently on great terms (she was with him at the Nightmare Alley premiere in NYC but they didn’t take pics on the red carpet together), their 2019 breakup went down amid a ton of (false!) rumors about Bradley Cooper having an affair with Lady Gaga thanks to their undeniable chemistry both *in* A Star Is Born and *on* the A Star Is Born press tour. Ahem:

For what it’s worth, Gaga completely denied the rumors, telling Jimmy Kimmel, “First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal. Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see. This is a love song. The movie A Star Is Born is a love story. It was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time.…Look, I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel. I’m an artist and I guess we did a good job…fooled ya!”

Because you’re wondering, nope, the Gaga rumors weren’t the reason Irina and Bradley split—although their breakup did come right after the rumors’ peak. As a source explained to Entertainment Tonight, “Recently, Irina decided enough is enough. She didn’t feel she was getting the level of commitment she wanted, and the endless fighting made their life unbearable. They are very different people, and once they realized it was the baby that was holding them together, it was time to call it quits.”

Note: Bradley and Irina are still close and co-parent their daughter. They even spent the 2021 Thanksgiving weekend together with Lea and were seen looking like the happiest little family during an outing with Anne Hathaway and her hubby. More recently, the two were *also* spotted holding hands with their only child walking in the streets of New York!

2013–2015: Suki Waterhouse

Bradley and Suki started dating in 2013 and kept things super low-key, with Suki explaining to Elle UK, “I don’t talk about my boyfriend because it’s boring.” She went on to add, “The truth is, if I start talking about him, I probably won’t be able to stop. And I don’t really want to talk about him, you know?”

They ended up breaking up in March 2015, with E! News confirming the split went down just one month after Bradley brought Suki as a date to the Oscars in February of that same year. Here’s a pic of their vibes at the time:

Sooo, Zoë and Bradley had a pretty tumultuous relationship. The couple first broke up after just four months of dating in March 2012, with a source telling E! News, “He dumped her; he just doesn’t want to be in a relationship at the moment….” But! They ended up getting back together in September that same year (right in time for the premiere of their movie The Words)…aaand Us Weekly confirmed they were over again in January 2013.

2011: Jennifer Lopez

TBD on if they were actually dating or not, but TMZ reports that Bradley and J.Lo were seen getting dinner in NYC together after she split from Marc Anthony and that the dinner looked “romantic.” (Psst: That pic of them ^ is from about a year before these rumors circled.)

Either way, the pair remained friends, and J.Lo even gave Bradley advice before singing “Shallow” with Lady Gaga at the Oscars, saying on Insta (via People), “He seemed a little nervous. I just whispered, I said, ‘The song is so beautiful. When they hear the first few notes, they’re going to start applauding. So don’t worry. Just deliver the song.’ He was like, ‘I got it, I got it, okay.’”

2009–2011: Renée Zellweger

Renée and Bradley dated for about two years before splitting up in early 2011—and a source told Us Weekly that Renée was the one to call things off because Bradley was just too career-focused. “If I had to pick any possible mistress, it would be Brad’s career,” a source said. “He worked really hard to get into leading man status.”

The pair appear to be on good terms and were photographed hanging at the Oscars in 2020!

2006–2007: Jennifer Esposito

Forgot Bradley was married? Literally same. But he and actor Jennifer Esposito made it official in December 2006 after a quick two-month engagement. And their marriage was even quicker, because Jennifer filed for divorce after just four months, citing irreconcilable differences.

While she hasn’t spent that much time talking about Bradley since, Jennifer did weigh in on rumors between him and Gaga, writing “ha” on THIS Insta post from David Spade:

Welp! That’s as good a note as any to end on!
