A source told E! News the reasoning behind their split, saying that the two were “questioning whether being a couple is what’s best.”
“They want to stay together for their daughter, but neither of them are very happy,” the source said. “They’ve spent time apart to test the waters and see if they are better off. They have a lot invested and it’s very difficult to completely walk away from. They are trying out different arrangements and trying to find their way. They love their little girl dearly and that’s not going to change no matter what.”
Cooper and Shayk started dating in 2015 and have since then kept their relationship private. They welcomed their first child, Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper, on March 2017. Rumors of their rocky relationship started to spread amid speculation of a romance blossoming between Cooper and A Star is Born co-star Lady Gaga, which the latter denied.
But it was when Shayk attended the 2019 Met Gala alone that breakup rumors were pretty much confirmed. However, it seems that the two will continue to be amicable with each other especially when they’re planning to share custody over their daughter.
“They have a lot of history and their precious daughter keeping them together for now,” the source added.
