Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk have reportedly split because the supermodel wanted "more commitment" from the A Star is Born director. 

Irina, 33, decided to end her relationship with Bradley - with whom she has two-year-old daughter Lea De Seine - at the end of last month because she was reportedly fed up with his gruelling work schedule.

A source told Entertainment Tonight: "Irina truly had high hopes for their future together and felt once the baby was born they would find the time to marry but that never came to fruition. She wanted more from Bradley in every way. But she was unhappy and felt he spent too much time working.

"Recently Irina decided enough is enough. She didn't feel she was getting the level of commitment she wanted and the endless fighting made their life unbearable. They are very different people and once they realised it was the baby that was holding them together, it was time to call it quits."

Although their split came as a surprise to many fans, those closest to them predicted that things would fizzle out because of how fast they got together.

A source explained: "They haven't been getting along for quite some time and seemed to be holding on to their relationship for the sake of their daughter.

"Those closest to them had high hopes that when Bradley completed promoting A Star is Born, they would find time to work out their differences, but things only got worse. Some of their friends feel they never truly got a chance to know each other outside of being a family, and it was just all too much too fast."

The brunette beauty began dating the 44-year-old actor in the spring 2015, they moved in together seven months later and welcomed their daughter into the world in March 2017. 

An insider told PEOPLE that the pair are now said to be amicably working out how to share custody of their two-year-old daughter.

Last week, it was reported their romance was "hanging by a thread".

A source said: "Because of their daughter, they keep trying. Things are not good. Neither one is happy. The relationship is hanging by a thread."

There was also speculation last year their relationship may be on the rocks when Bradley appeared opposite Lady Gaga in the movie A Star is Born.

A source said of the co-stars: "They are both very hard-working, driven people and during the making of the film, had a very professional work relationship. From the moment they began collaborating with each other, people on the set saw how connected they were. There is endless chemistry between them.

"When they're together, they complete each other sentences. They are creatively so in tune with one another and seem to have a total intuition with one another."

But Bradley and Irina insisted they were in a happy and "secure" relationship.

An insider said at the time: "He is an honest guy and who is in a relationship and everyone has gotten very carried away with the gossip.

"Irina is with him a lot. She comes out all the time and they are really sweet together. Bradley is caring and conscious of her feelings. He doesn't want Irina to feel uncomfortable and she seems totally secure with their relationship."
