Move over, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper! There’s a new duo fueling romance rumors in Hollywood and it’s … Christian Carino and Irina Shayk? After news of Bradley and Irina’s split spread on June 6, the model left home and headed out for a work trip to Iceland. On June 8 and June 10, she posted two stunning, sexy photos of herself abroad — and Gaga’s ex ‘liked’ both Instagrams. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but you have to admit it’s pretty weird, right?
The post in question is a photo of Irina, 33, from behind, rocking a black bathing suit as she stands in front of a waterfall. It’s not super close up, but it’s clear to anyone with eyes that the model’s body is bangin’ — and it seems that Christian, 51, agrees. He also ‘liked’ another photo of Irina sitting by the water with a grey sweater slipping off her shoulder. So far, those are the only two photos that Irina has posted since her split, and the talent agent ‘liked’ both of them.
We’re not sure if this is flirting or maybe just shade at their exes and the faux-romance the A Star Is Born stars fed into in order to promote their movie, but it’s definitely something. After all, back when Gaga, 33, and Bradley, 44, were making eyes at each other on stage in front of an audience of millions, Irina was snubbing the songstress. Additionally, sources at the time were reporting that the model felt uneasy about how close the actors were. “[It] doesn’t sit well with Irina and continues to fuel jealous arguments,” an insider exclusively told In Touch.
It seems like Christian also had a tough time dealing with Gaga and Bradley’s closeness. The talent agent leaned on friend Johnny Depp after his split, admitting on Instagram that the actor was “helping heal” him. His Instagram posts also had fans convinced that he was still struggling even months after he and the “Telephone” singer called it quits. And considering the fact that Gaga apparently told her ex to “not contact her” in the wake of their breakup, we’d say things didn’t exactly end on the friendliest of terms.
So is Christian trying to stir up trouble now that both Gaga and Bradley are single? Or do the two men just happen to share a type? All we know is we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled. Whether Christian is playing coy or just playing around, he’s definitely making waves, and we’re dying to know what might come next.
