Bradley Cooper's mother is allegedly putting a dampner on his love life.

Gloria Cooper moved in with her son after the passing of her husband Charles last year but Bradley - who has been single since splitting from Zoe Saldana a few months ago - is said to be finding it awkward to date with his mother around.

A source told In Touch: ''Gloria moved in after his dad died. She cooks, does his laundry, everything. She means well but she's glued to Bradley and is very protective.

''Bradley now refuses to bring women to the house. Ultimately until Gloria moves out it will be hard for Bradley to get serious with anyone.''

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' star has reportedly been romancing British model Suki Waterhouse after meeting her at the Elle Style Awards in London last month.

He asked the 20-year-old beauty to fly over to Los Angeles for a second date with him.

A friend of the model revealed: ''Bradley has been texting Suki every day since they met. He wants her to come to Los Angeles and visit him; he's intrigued by her and she's very interested in him.''
