Bradley Cooper in his first high profile relationship in years when Vidak For Congress exclusively revealed he is dating political aide Huma Abedin.
Many of the actor’s exes are well-known women, including several movie stars, models and now politicians.
See the complete relationship history of the actors of “A Star is Born”.
Cooper began dating actress Jennifer Esposito in February 2006. He proposed to the “Crash” star in October and married in the South of France in December of the same year.
Unfortunately, Esposito filed for divorce after just four months, citing irreconcilable differences.
“Jennifer Esposito has filed for divorce. She asks you to respect her privacy at this time,” her representative said in a statement at the time. In a separate statement, Cooper’s attorney added, “The separation was mutual and they’ve been separated for a while.”
The actor’s next major relationship was with fellow thespian Renée Zellweger. They started dating in 2009, three years after their first meeting on the set of “Case 39” in 2006.
“I can’t say enough about her,” Cooper told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “I just love her. l [loved] come to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her.”
Zellweger spent the 2009 holiday season with Cooper and his parents and they were spotted house hunting in early 2010, eventually moving into a $4.7 million home in Pacific Palisades, California.
The couple broke up the following year with sources at Us Weekly claiming that Cooper’s career aspirations sealed the couple’s fate.
Although Cooper and ‘Life Itself’ actress Olivia Wilde were never confirmed as a couple, the pair reportedly “hooked” for a short time in early 2011 after Cooper’s split from Zellweger.
Another brief courtship, Lopez and Cooper are said to have dated in late 2011, when the pair were spotted dining together in New York City and caught in Cooper’s car in Los Angeles following Lopez’s split from Marc Anthony.
The relationship soon fizzled out, but the pair remained friends, with J. Lo cheering on a nervous Cooper for his 2019 Oscars performance of “Shallow” with Lady Gaga.
“He seemed a little nervous. I just whispered, I said, ‘The song is so beautiful. When they hear the first few notes, they start to applaud. So don’t worry. Deliver the song.’ He said, ‘I’ve got it, I’ve got it, okay.’”
Cooper began dating Zoe Saldaña in December 2011 after meeting the actress on the set of their movie ‘The Words’.
Sadly, the couple broke up after just four months, with a source telling E! News at the time: “He dumped her, he just doesn’t want a relationship right now… They have a great friendship, a natural chemistry and it was for that reason that their relationship could grow into something more. But the timing was wrong, they are in different places in their lives.”
The couple reunited in September and reportedly planned to spend the holidays together, but couldn’t make it through the entire year.
“Zoe had planned to spend the holiday with Bradley and his family in Europe. They all went to Paris, but things didn’t work out between them. Zoe spent New Year’s Eve with friends in Miami,” a source told Vidak For Congress at the time.
The bachelor went on to date British model and actress Suki Waterhouse – who is 17 years his junior – in March 2013. Although they were quite low-key, the couple occasionally attended swanky events, including the 2014 SAG Awards. and dinner at the White House.
“I don’t talk about my boyfriend because it’s boring,” Waterhouse said in the January 2014 issue of Elle UK. “At least that’s what I decided to tell you when you asked. I think anything I say will sound weird. But the truth is, if I start talking about him, I probably won’t be able to stop. And I don’t really want to talk about him, you know?’
The couple broke up in March 2015, just before the Oscars, although they still attended the ceremony together as friends.
Cooper began dating model Irina Shayk in the spring of 2015. Almost two years later, they announced they were expecting a child together and welcomed daughter Lea de Seine Shayk Cooper in March 2017.
Unfortunately, by June 2019, the couple’s relationship “was hanging by a thread”
“Because of their daughter, they keep trying,” a source for the couple said at the time, adding: “It’s not going well. Neither of them are happy. The relationship is hanging by a thread.”
The couple split shortly after the report, with many speculating that his chemistry with Lady Gaga in “A Star is Born” played a factor in the split.
Many believed that Cooper and Gaga’s chemistry during their emotional duet of “Shallow” at the Academy Awards was too strong to ignore, but the “Rain On Me” singer has consistently denied having a non-professional relationship with her screen partner, and wrote it down to great acting.
“This is a love song, ‘Shallow’, the movie ‘A Star Is Born’ is a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance,” she said, adding, “It was important for both of us that we were connected the whole time.”
The news of Cooper’s relationship with Dianna Agron came the same day his relationship with Abedin was revealed.
Sources revealed to Vidak For Congress exclusively that the actor was in a relationship with the “Glee” actress before he started seeing Abedin, but it’s unclear how long the couple had been together or even when they were together.
According to multiple insiders, the “Hangover” star has been in a relationship with Hillary Clinton’s top assistant, Huma Abedin, in recent months. Vogue editor Anna Wintour is said to have played matchmaker for the pair.
“They’re a perfect match,” said a source. “They both love power, politics and human affairs.”
