In another sign that Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk are in it for the long haul, we’re told the pair are now living together in her New York City apartment.
Shortly after the “Silver Linings Playbook” star split withmodel Suki Waterhouse in March, he was on the hunt for a bachelor pad in the city, reportedly checking out an $ 8.9 million apartment in Tribeca.
But [email protected] is told that the hunky actor called off the search when he began dating supermodel Shayk.
“Right around that time, he hooked up with Irina and things got serious very quickly,” said our source.
The couple spent part of the summer together on a romantic trip to Italy. As [email protected] reported, by the end of the summer Cooper was ready tod include the Sports Illustrated cover girl in a family tradition over Labor Day weekend, bringing her along to an annual get-together in Brigantine, N.J.
“Instead of continuing his apartment hunt, he’s been living at Irina’s apartment on Perry St. in the West Village,” the source added. “And he’s been in New York City a lot: approximately half of September and have of October and has been in New York City for a chunk of November as well.”
“He’s seen going in and out of her place, and the two go for walks on the West Side Highway a lot,” said our curtain-twitcher.
However, the “American Sniper” star may be a little gun-shy about buying a place with his lady. He bought a $ 4.7 million house in Pacific Palisades, Calif., with then-girlfriend Renee Zellweger in January 2010, only for her to move out in March 2011.
Shayk has lived in the city since she was engaged to soccer star Christiano Ronaldo. She is something of a real estate mogul, telling Vanity Fair in 2013 that she would rather put her modeling millions into buildings rather than the stock market.
“I’m Russian, and I think I would take the safest road: real estate,” she said, “Because real estate in New York is growing day by day, especially in areas in the West Village and uptown.”
She told the magazine she owns two properties in the city — both in the West Village — and two more in her native country. The beauty said she lives in one of the New York properties and the other is being renovated.
