CNN anchor Anderson Cooper dumps boyfriend of nine years, for a younger doctor (Photos)



50-year old CNN Anchor, Anderson Cooper, has ended his relationship of nine years to 45-year-old Benjamin Maisani.The American Journalist who confirmed the split in a statement to Daily Mail, said;

‘Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago. We are still family to each other, and love each other very much.

We remain the best of friends, and will continue to share much of our lives together.’

However, Anderson Cooper, has now been linked to a 33-year-old doctor identified as Victor Lopez, who he reportedly took five trips to Dallas for, to spend time with him.

However Cooper and Maisani do appear to still be living together, and were photographed leaving their Greenwich Village home together just two days ago on their way to the gym.

Cooper was first spotted in Dallas the weekend before Christmas, staying at a luxury hotel where he was unable to avoid bumping into at least one excited couple, who snapped a photo with the on-air personality.

He stayed put in New York City over the holidays due to his annual New Year’s Eve hosting duties on CNN, but was back in Texas the following weekend. That is when Lopez posted the first image of the two men together, which showed them sitting together in a car.

Lopez captioned the photo by writing: ‘Weekend vibes.’

The young doctor appears to have been a fan of Cooper from even before they met, with his Instagram handle having formerly been Victoro360, which is similar to the title of Cooper’s CNN show Anderson 360. He changed it however in February to Victoro001.

He then managed to combine both work and play on the weekend of January 15 when he took Lopez along with him on a trip to New Orleans.

Cooper was there to shoot a 60 Minutes segment on the removal of monuments honoring Confederate leaders, and Lopez shared a photo of the two men inside a room at their hotel.

Lopez took that photo while laying on the couch and it shows his sneakers and Cooper’s smiling face as he sits in a chair wearing a suit with his notepad.

’So tell me about your week,’ wrote Lopez, joking that it appeared as though he was at a therapist’s office.
