News of Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's split (opens in new tab) rocked the celebrity-relationship-following world (opens in new tab) this week.

First, there were the reports that the couple's relationship was "hanging by a thread," (opens in new tab) and then the devastating pictures of Irina leaving their shared home (opens in new tab) with packed bags in tow. Now, sources are saying that they basically only tried to make things work as long as they did for their daughter, two-year-old Lea De Seine.

A source close to the couple, who met in 2015, told Page Six (opens in new tab) that "after the lust wore off, they had very little in common."

Sit down and grab a mug, because the tea just keeps coming.

"They never shopped for their own house in California," the source revealed. "It was just his house. There were no moves in that direction. Then there’s the fact that they never got married after they had a kid. She was certain that would happen. It felt like they weren’t truly making a life together outside of the child."

According to Page Six (opens in new tab), Bradley is likely going to let Irina keep the LA home (opens in new tab) they shared and is committed to raising their daughter together on good terms.

"He wants to part on good terms, or as good as it can be in this situation," the source revealed.

Just...ouch, to all of this.
