A source tells PageSix Cooper broke up with his 23-year-old model girlfriend because “she wasn’t supportive of his acting career.”
Cooper allegedly felt that Waterhouse provided little encouragement during his huge success in Broadway’s Elephant Man, which ran from Nov. 7 through Feb 21.
The source also adds that Valentine’s Day also provided a big deciding moment. Cooper was in New York, but Waterhouse decided to spend the romantic holiday with her girlfriends, jetting off to Austin, Texas and leaving her beau alone.
The couple — who began dating in March 2013 — made their split public in March, and both appear to be moving on by staying busy. Waterhouse has landed several modeling gigs and magazine spreads this month, while Cooper has been busy filming Joy in Boston with Jennifer Lawrence.
Meanwhile, lots of rumors about J. Law and Cooper’s romantic involvement began circulating following his split. However, Lawrence made it clear that they only relationship they hold is a “sexless work marriage.”
