Bradley Cooper Dating Hillary Clinton’s Longtime Aide, Huma Abedin
The cat is out of the bag, and Bradley Cooper is dating Huma Abedin.
Abedin, a longtime political aide to close friend Hillary Clinton, and Cooper have been quietly dating “for a few months.” The couple arrived at the Met Gala together in May but walked the carpet separately.
“They are perfect for each other,” a source familiar with the couple said. “They’re both into power and politics and human affairs.”
Cooper, 47, and Abedin, 45, were set up by Vogue‘s Anna Wintour.
“Anna definitely played matchmaker,” one insider claimed. “She’s BFFs with Bradley and adores Huma.”
Abedin “has told a few friends” she has a “new man … but she didn’t say who it was. She was keeping it very close to her chest,” according to the source. Cooper allegedly broke up with Glee actress, Dianna Agron, to pursue his new relationship.
Neither Abedin nor Cooper are strangers to high-profile relationships.
The American Sniper star previously dated Renée Zellweger and shares a 5-year-old daughter with model, Irina Shayk. Abedin was formerly married to disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner. They share a 10-year-old son, Jordan. Weiner was on the rise in the Democratic Party before he was involved in multiple sexting scandals. Their marriage ended and he spent time in federal prison for sending sexually explicit texts to a minor.
“He didn’t just break my heart, he ripped it out and stomped on it over and over again,” Abedin said.
Politics aren’t an issue for Cooper and Abedin. The actor previously donated to Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2008 and attended the 2016 Democratic national convention.
