Are they dating or just friends?
The internet has been buzzing with rumors about Gigi Hadid and Bradley Cooper ever since they were spotted driving together in New York City on October 3, 2023. The supermodel and the actor looked cozy and comfortable in each other’s company, sparking speculation that they might be more than friends.
However, sources close to the pair have denied any romantic involvement, claiming that they are just good friends who have known each other for a long time. Hadid and Cooper reportedly met through mutual friends in the fashion industry and have bonded over their shared interests and experiences.
“They are not dating, they are just friends,” a source told Page Six. “They have a lot of mutual friends and have been hanging out as a group. They have a lot in common and enjoy each other’s company, but there is nothing romantic going on.”
What about their exes?
Hadid and Cooper have both gone through high-profile breakups in the past year. Hadid split from her longtime boyfriend, singer Zayn Malik, in January 2023, after four years of on-and-off dating. The couple share a daughter, Khai, who was born in September 2020.
Cooper ended his relationship with model Irina Shayk in June 2022, after four years of dating. The former couple share a daughter, Lea, who was born in March 2017.
Both Hadid and Cooper have remained on good terms with their exes and co-parent their children amicably. Hadid and Malik still live close to each other in New York City and often spend time together as a family. Cooper and Shayk also live near each other in Los Angeles and frequently travel together with their daughter.
How do they spend their time together?
Hadid and Cooper have been seen together several times in the past few weeks, mostly in New York City. They were first photographed leaving a hotel together on September 29, 2023, wearing casual outfits and sunglasses. They were later seen driving around the city in Cooper’s car, with Hadid behind the wheel and Cooper in the passenger seat.
On October 9, 2023, they were spotted arriving back in New York City after an apparent weekend trip. They both wore masks and carried luggage as they walked to Cooper’s apartment. They were also seen leaving the building together later that day, with Cooper carrying a backpack and Hadid holding a large tote bag.
According to sources, Hadid and Cooper enjoy spending quality time together without any pressure or expectations. They like to keep things low-key and casual, avoiding the paparazzi and the media attention as much as possible.
“They are very private and discreet,” a source told Glamour. “They don’t want to make a big deal out of their friendship or put a label on it. They just like to have fun and relax together.”
