A new Hollywood couple has emerged in the form of Bradley Cooper and Huma Abedin, reports claim.
Cooper and Abedin have maintained an ultra-private romance for the past few months, according to a Page Six source. "Bradley has been quietly dating Huma for a few months now, they've been keeping it really quiet," the insider said, adding that the Star Is Born actor broke up with former Glee star Dianna Agron prior to dating Abedin.
Abedin, a former aide to Hillary Clinton, is currently in the final stages of her divorce proceedings from Anthony Weiner, the former New York congressional representative who resigned in 2011 after inappropriate messages he sent to young women on Twitter were leaked. In 2017, Weiner pleaded guilty to sending sexually explicit texts to a minor and subsequently was sentenced to 21 months in prison. Abedin filed for divorce from Weiner that year. The two share a son, Jordan Zain Weiner.
"Bradley is a big step up from Anthony Weiner, to say the very least," the source told Page Six.
The insider also explained that Cooper and Abedin share many interests. "They are perfect for each other," the source continued. "They're both into power and politics and human affairs."
So far, the insider said Abedin has only "told a few friends" that she has a "new man," but "she didn't say who it was. She was keeping it very close to her chest."
Abedin opened up about her split from Weiner in a 2021 interview with The Cut.
"I had my heart broken, dragged out, stomped on, humiliated. I lived with shame, in shame, for so long," she said. "On the one hand, you have this person who's making your life so easy. On the other hand, you have this person who's doing these deeply irresponsible things, and what felt to me like very, very selfish things, and taking us down."
