He only recently acknowledged what everyone already suspected. And after he finally did come out as gay, it was widely speculated that Anderson Cooper was planning to marry his longtime boyfriend, Ben Maisani, as early as September.
But that all changed somewhat dramatically as of yesterday (Aug. 12) when photos surfaced of Maisani openly kissing another man in an NYC park.
The host of Anderson Cooper 360 is said to be stunned and shocked, particularly in light of how he discovered his boyfriend’s blatant infidelity
Life & Style is exclusively reporting that Cooper and Maisani are currently on holiday together– and he learnt of the news in much the same way as we all did.
“Anderson was with Ben in Croatia when he was told about the photos,” a source tells Life & Style. “They were on a yacht. They flew to Croatia on Aug. 11, one day after the photos were taken. Anderson’s upset — who wouldn’t be?”
Anderson, 45, and Ben, 39, who have been together for more than three years, do not have an open relationship, a source close to Ben insists, so the betrayal has hit Anderson hard.
Last month, Anderson, 45, said: “The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself and proud,” he said.
