'That is what we wanted you to see,' Lady Gaga told Jimmy Kimmel when he asked her directly about the pair's intense chemistry on stage.
'This is a long song. It is a love story and we worked so hard. I knew he had the vision for how it should go,' she added.
The admission comes after Page Six claimed: 'Hollywood is buzzing that Gaga fell for Bradley during pre-production and filming, creating the intense emotional energy you see on-screen and at the Oscar. He wanted an authentic love story on-screen.'
Talks of them hanging out at the after party were also mentioned by various sources.
'Gaga and Bradley were cosied up on a sofa... They were inseparable, and people definitely thought it was weird.'
'There was no sign of his model girlfriend,' said another.
