Earlier this month, we learned that Bradley Cooper was dating Huma Abedin, a former aide to Hillary Clinton and ex-wife of the notorious Anthony Weiner. Despite that unfortunate Weiner connection, 45-year-old Huma is everything a very serious actor entering his Clooney phase could want: age-appropriate, intelligent, political, super into human rights, blah, blah, and blah! Almost three weeks after the initial headlines, Page Six is reporting that Brad and Huma are still going strong: a witness allegedly spotted the two nuzzling and kissing while picking up bagels early Sunday morning in the Hamptons. Or… were they? Because both Bradley and Huma’s reps deny, deny, deny this scandalous bagel report! They insist that their clients weren’t even in the Hamptons! Well, shit. Either the reps are lying, or the dopplegängers from Us are back to their old tricks!
via Page Six:
An eagle-eyed spy told Page Six they spotted the good-looking pair at Goldberg’s Famous Bagels in Amagansett, N.Y. on Sunday at 6 a.m.
“They were there before the bagels even arrived,” the source said. “She was kind of nuzzling him, they kissed a couple times. She was very loving.”
I get it. Bagels are sexy. Holes. Yeast. They rise. It’s hot. But it might not be true!:
While our early morning witness is adamant they saw the highly recognizable “Silver Linings Playbook” star with the equally striking top aide to Hillary Clinton, reps insisted they were not there.
“Huma was in upstate [New York] all weekend and abroad immediately before that, so that can’t be true,” a rep for Abedin told us.
Meanwhile, a rep for Cooper told us, “They are good friends — this isn’t true. Bradley was in New York.”
Figure it out, Page Six detectives! I need to know if these two were canoodling over crack-of-dawn bagels or in different parts of New York. And while Bradley’s rep is sticking to the “they’re platonic” line, Page Six’s source from earlier this month had a whole different story. The insider alleged that Bradley and Huma’s mutual friend, Anna Wintour, introduced them. They also said that the two arrived together at the Met Gala back in May, but split up and walked the red carpet solo. The source adds:
“They are perfect for each other,” a source told Page Six at the time. “They’re both into power and politics and human affairs.”
“They’re both into power.” Damn, makes them sound like super-villains. But maybe that’s not a huge stretch. Because it sounds like Bradley Cooper is one more failed Oscar nomination AWAY from taking revenge on the Academy, Hollywood, America, THE WORLD!
