A Star is Born starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga was a box office hit, nabbing several nominations and awards during a successful awards-season stint. But, ever since the love-story hit screens, fans have wanted to make A Star is Born an offscreen reality - rooting for Cooper and Gaga to couple up.
Fans have always noted their on-screen chemistry transferred to real life, too - especially after that Oscars performance, which caused quite the stir to say the least... but more on that later.
And, after reports came in about Bradley Cooper's split from his supermodel girlfriend, Irina Shayk, it didn't take long for the internet to go crazy, and to spur on even more speculation that Gaga will swoop in for a newly single Cooper.
But now, the singer has responded the all the romance rumors.

Ever since A Star is Born was released, fans have been rooting for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga to hook up in real life.Actor, Bradley Cooper, and singer, Lady Gaga, starred as Ally and Jackson in the third remake of the hit film. If you haven't watched it (seriously, where have you been?), it follows rockstar, Jackson, as he discovers Ally while watching her perform “La Vie En Rose" (ironically, the same way that Cooper met Gaga) in a drag bar. The pair then develop a truly breathtaking romance, having us all invested in their evolving relationship.
Fans were quick to notice that the chemistry between Gaga and Cooper went further than their characters...

They did look very couple-y as they hit the red-carpet.

Fans would pick up on anything and everything...Fans picked up on how Cooper looked at Gaga during their interviews and press events.
But it was all bad news for Cooper's relationship.All of the rumors following the release of the film were bound to take their toll on the couple. But, there was one moment, in particular, that may have pushed the pair over the edge...
Some are citing this as the moment that Cooper's doomed relationship plummeted towards a break-up...The pair took to the stage at The Oscars in February to perform the critically-acclaimed hit "Shallow" from their movie, but it was hard to ignore the chemistry between them. Cooper's girlfriend, Irina Shayk, looked on awkwardly as the pair had what fans are calling a "near kiss" moment.
But fans noticed something else about Lady Gaga at the Oscars...Her then fiance, Christian Carino, was absent - prompting rumors that the pair had split. Our suspicions were then confirmed as it was announced that Gaga and Carino had ended their relationship shortly after the event.
Well, of course, the "Bradga" rumors only escalated from there.

She revealed that the pair were not at all in love...

The whole thing has simply been a performance.
via: GettyEspecially their Oscars spectacle. “I mean, we made a love story," she explained. “For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course, we wanted people to believe that we were in love. And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars."
The whole thing was carefully planned out...
via: Getty"We wanted it to go through through the lens of the camera and to every television that it was being watched on," Gaga explained. "And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out — it was orchestrated as a performance." Well, I'm starting to feel a bit silly...
