After their performance, the two shared a long hug and Cooper lifted her off the ground a bit. His longtime girlfriend, Irina Shayk, 33, was part of the audience and even cheered for them when they were done.

Reacting to the performance, comedian and actor David Spade posted a photo of their performance on social media and asked what many people were wondering. He wrote to his Instagram followers, "Is there any chance these 2 aren't [expletive]?"

Copper’s ex-wife, Jennifer Esposito, 45, added her thoughts in the comments writing, “Ha.” She and Copper had been married for four months.

They got divorced in 2007. In 2014, the “NCIS” actress released her book, “Jennifer's Way,” where she critiqued her ex-husband even though the book was mainly about her battle with a disease.

In the book, she opened up about struggling with Celiac Disease. However, speaking about her marriage to Cooper she wrote that she had an "entire marching band squad of red flags" that she should’ve noticed, but instead "chose to ignore them."

Esposito added, "He was funny, smart, cocky, arrogant, and a master manipulator. I didn't necessarily find him that attractive, but I figured that I could enjoy his sense of humor and nonsense for a while."
