- Magical chemistry is evident whenever Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga perform together
- Their duet at the Oscars was the talk of the Academy Awards
- Books are offering odds that the two will never admit to dating

The fact that it concluded with a sensual embrace between the two only added to persistent rumors that they’re an item off the stage as well.
But are they really? Books are willing to bet on “no” as the answer to that question. They’re offering a prop bet heavily weighted toward the two not acknowledging that they are dating during 2019.

Going Gaga Over Bradley and Gaga
Hollywood has been in the fake romance business for decades. In the past, shrewd publicity agents arranged for prominent stars to be seen together in public in order to get the gossip mills churning out speculation about who’s dating who in La La Land.

What people tend to forget about those who perform on the stage is that they are in fact actors playing to the audience, selling you a tale of fiction and getting you to buy it as reality.
It’s all make believe, though. And if there’s one thing you don’t want to be wagering on, it’s that fairy tales will come true.
