AceShowbiz - It's not Bradley Cooper, but Jeremy Renner. Lady GaGa has sparked dating rumors with the Hawkeye of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as they have reportedly been "hanging out" together following the end of her engagement to Christian Carino earlier this year.
A source tells Us Weekly in its new issue that the 32-year-old singer/actress has been "spending a lot of time" with the 48-year-old actor and his 6-year-old daughter Ava, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Sonni Pacheco.
The source, however, notes that it doesn't necessarily mean there's something romantic brewing on between the two stars, at least not "at this point."
Another source similarly tells E! News of GaGa's relationship with Renner. "She has been friends with Jeremy Renner for a while. They often hang out when they are both in town," the source claims. "She's been spending time with him recently but it's not romantic."
The news comes after GaGa called off her engagement to talent agent Christian Carino after two years together. Her representative confirmed their split a week after the "Bad Romance" hitmaker was seen without her engagement ring at the 2019 Grammy Awards in February.
GaGa was previously engaged to longtime boyfriend Taylor Kinney, but they split for good at the end of 2016. The two remain friendly though, with the "Chicago Fire" actor saying in October 2018 that he "couldn't be more proud" of "A Star Is Born" success.
GaGa was recently rumored to be "in love" with her "A Star Is Born" co-star Bradley Cooper following their intimate duet at the Academy Awards. Responding to the speculations, the Mother Monster, whose real name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, told Jimmy Kimmel on his show last month, "First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet and what it's done to pop culture is abysmal."
Insisting that it was just acting, she continued, "People saw love and, guess what, that's what we wanted to you to see. This is a love song. The movie, 'A Star Is Born', it's a love story." She added, "From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time. When you're singing love songs, that's how you want people to feel." In the end, she concluded, "I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!"
