Here’s a pair we didn’t see coming. Us Weekly is reporting that Lady Gaga and Jeremy Renner (Avengers, The Hurt Locker) have been “hanging out” and “spending a lot of time” together, according to a source. Neither party has commented on the rumors yet.
Before you start freaking out over the potential new couple, Us’ insider “doesn’t believe [Gaga and Renner’s relationship] is romantic at this point.” So we can calm down for now. However, the outlet does report that the singer has been spending time with the actor and his six-year-old daughter, Ava, whom he shares with ex-wife Sonni Pacheco.
Gaga was previously engaged to talent agent Christian Carino, whom she started dating in early 2017. Although they made a number of sweet joint appearances during awards season this year, their split was ultimately reported in February.
A source told People at the time that their relationship “just didn’t work out” and “there’s no long dramatic story” behind the breakup.
Renner was previously married to Pacheco, a Canadian actress, in January 2014 but separated 10 months later, according to E! News. Despite the split, the actor is devoted to spending time with his daughter.
“[If] anything takes me away and I don’t get to see her, I just won’t do it,” Renner told Playboy in 2015, per ABC News. “I don’t care what you pay me … [Sonni and I] split the time with Ava equally now. When it’s Daddy and Ava time, that’s all I do.”
Reports of the new friendship come nearly a month after Gaga and A Star Is Born co-star Bradley Cooper made us emotional with their stunning performance of “Shallow” at the Oscars. We’re in our feelings all over again.
