When it comes to Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga's rumoured romance, the Internet isn't shy to concoct a conspiracy theory - but the latest one takes the cake. Ever since Gaga called off her engagement with ex-fiancé Christian Carino and Cooper ended his four-year relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk, fans have been happy to speculate about the A Star Is Born co-stars and their love lives.

"Italians cook with love ❤️," Gaga captioned a romantic photo on Instagram. As many Monsters would know, Gaga - born Stefani Germanotta - is Italian. Her parents even own an Italian restaurant in New York.
Despite photos of Gaga and audio engineer Dan Horton kissing in Los Angeles just last month, fans speculated that Cooper was somehow involved in the romantic shot.
"Where's Bradley hiding?" one follower commented. "Did Bradley take this picture? Love you queen ❤️" another fan wrote.
"good to know Bradley is Italian x," said another.
Of course, the simplest explanation for the photo's cryptic caption could also be that it's just a cute picture of Gaga sharing her love for her Italian roots...and delicious food.
