After less than a year of dating Hollywood heart-throb Bradley Cooper and model Irina Shayk have split.

The couple, who started dating in April last year, are said to have parted ways after a number of explosive fights over Christmas.

‘They spent Christmas together in LA but arguments started, mainly centring around the fact Irina and Bradley’s mum weren’t getting on very well,’ reveals an insider.

While the ladies in Bradley’s life were said to have started out quite close, they began to clash over time, which is reportedly the main reason why Bradley, 41, decided to end things.

‘Irina is a very strong, beautiful Russian woman who knows what she wants, and perhaps Bradley’s mum saw that as something she didn’t want for her son,’ the insider adds.

Although Irina, 30, is said to be devastated about the split, it’s been reported that she has already started dating again, moving on with 25-year-old British model Stephen James.
