Irina Shayk's secret Russian jibe at Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga

Supermodel Irina Shayk has kept a dignified silence since her split from Bradley Cooper, amid rumours of his romance with Lady Gaga – which both have denied.

While the singer has insisted she only had a professional relationship with her A Star Is Born director and co-star, she has admitted that her friendship with Cooper was “special”.

Her intimate performance with Cooper at the Oscars of her statuette-winning song Shallow was a bitter pill for Irina to swallow as she sat in the front row, and just weeks later the model called time on her relationship with Bradley.

In her first interview since the split, Irina told Bazaar .com that she’s “not perfect” and while she refused to speak about her private life, she did manage to send some secret shade to Cooper and Gaga.

According to Pajiba.com, Irina talking about her love of tomatoes has more to it than just providing food for the family.

There was a one-liner in the interview which they believe is a secret message to her former lover.

Irina said: “Every time people send me flowers, I’m like, just send me a tomato plant!”

While Irina had explained that women in Russia are renowned for planting tomatoes, but Pajiba has highlighted that tomatoes are also known to ‘ward off evil spirits’.

They went on to explain that what invites evil spirits to your home, is ‘speaking their name’.

With this in mind, they have suggested that this is why Irina refuses to discuss either Bradley Cooper or Lady Gaga in public, so that she doesn’t ‘curse her life further’.

Of course, it could be that she is looking to move on and doesn’t see her private life as an area that she is comfortable talking about but it certainly makes the ‘tomato quote’ take on a new meaning.
