During the last week of August, Irina Shayk shared a number of sexy photos to her Instagram timeline supposedly taken during a vacation with her ex, Bradley Cooper. The images had people wondering if they were potentially back together. The two are friends and co-parent their daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper. They also have taken vacations in the past while officially split up.
But sources told TMZ that Shayk is still seeing NFL star Tom Brady after the new couple have been seen on frequent dates this summer. They met in May of 2023 at the wedding of billionaire art heir Joe Nahmad and model Madison Headrick, which took place in Sardinia.
A source claimed, “A number of models were hitting on Tom, and Irina was one of them.”
Sources added that Brady’s ex, Gisele Bündchen, was “not happy at all” about the rumored hook up. These rumors were denied by Shayk’s rep at the time. Since then, Shayk has been seen coming in and out of Brady’s mansion in Bel-Air and he was photographed touching her face in the car while they were paused at a stoplight. In August, she was seen leaving a London hotel where Brady was staying.
Cooper and Shayk dated for four years before their break up. Brady and Bündchen were together for 16 years, married for 13 of them. They share two children, 12-year-old Benjamin, and nine-year-old Vivian. They also co-parented Brady’s son John “Jack” Edward Thomas. Brady fathered Jack with his ex, Bridget Moynahan, who announced she was pregnant right after Bündchen and Brady got together.
Bündchen once told Vanity Fair, “We were dating two and a half months when he found out, and it was a very challenging situation. Obviously, in the beginning, it’s not the ideal thing.”
