Renee Zellweger & Bradley Cooper split!


Oh noes! Seconds after Star Magazine reports that Bradley Cooper has likely been boning Sandra Bullock and Jessica Biel, People Magazine makes the official announcement that Bradley and Renee Zellweger are OVER. Damn. Poor Renee. Apparently, people have been whispering about them being dunzo for nearly a month…? Except that I’ve read nothing about that. Last I heard, Renee dropped out of her appearance at the Golden Globes because Bradley’s father died, and then she was at his Inside the Actors Studio taping. Oh, well.

It’s over for Bradley Cooper and Renée Zellweger.

Cooper, 36, and Zellweger, 41, who met in 2009 and moved in together last fall to become one of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples, have broken up, sources tell PEOPLE.

Although the pair never officially confirmed their relationship, they were frequently spotted out together and Cooper has been vocal about his feelings.

“I can’t say enough about her,” he said in September while promoting the couple’s film Case 39. “I just love her. I [loved] coming to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her.”

Zellweger even skipped the Golden Globes in January at the last minute to be with Cooper when his father died. She was also close to Cooper’s mom, Gloria.

But in February, there was speculation about their relationship when they each attended a pre-Oscar party but didn’t hang out together.

Their reps have no comment.

[From People]

“One of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples…”??? Um, the only time anyone got photos of the two of them together, they were candids with one of them hiding their face. And Renee has just been looking like hell for most of the relationship too.

So… did Bradley cheat? That’s what everybody’s going to be asking. Looks like somebody’s going to be in the market for a quick rebound girlfriend to ensure that the cheating rumors stay on the friendly side of hetersexual. Call Taylor Swift!

    Meh. It was easy to forget they were even “together.”

  2. Disco says:

    I remember Lainey saying something about Biel last week…that she couldn’t imagine her letting Timberlake go until she found a suitable jumpoff.


  3. Marjalane says:

    Hmmmmmmmmm…..without knowing any actual facts, I chose to lay the blame squarely on the shoulders of B. Cooper. Primarily because I can smell his douchness all the way from my living room. My smutty sense tells me that this was a bearding situation that became unpleasant for both of them, but my common sense tells me that perhaps Mr. Cooper found a bigger star to bang in Sandy Bullock…? or God forbid- a newly single Jessica Biel? (blech)

  4. Jules says:

    She should have done something attractive with her hair. I saw The Actor’s Studio interview and she looked ridiculous. Was she trying to look ugly on purpose? She’s not an ugly woman. Where is her career BTW? Haven’t seen her in anything in awhile accept carrying Starbucks to a waiting Brad…I knew he was using her based on that stupid comment of his how he can learn a lot from her. Can’t stand the guy. Fake, phony, user. He’ll go after Sandra now since she’s single and ready to mingle and probably has more money and clout then Renee. What a creep.

  5. Patricia says:

    Poor Renee – I’ve always liked her. She seems nice and down to earth. She does look like hell though – hopefully she can get back to a healthy weight again.

    Hang in there Renee – he didn’t deserve you!

  6. Rita says:

    So if Jessie James hadn’t put the “Sieg heil” on the tatooed tattas and had Justin not put the “big Timber” to….well the rest of Hollywood, then Bradley would have kept the “Cooper Scooper” in his pants? Aaaah, the Hollywood game of dominos. Got to love it.

  7. Candy says:

    She should have gotten pregnant while she had the chance. At least the guy had good physical genes. She wanted marriage first? What an idiot.

  8. Stephanie says:

    She has had so much work done and wears such unflattering hair styles and clothes that it is very easy to forget what a beautiful woman she really is. :(

  9. El Predicto says:

    The contract was up! Now they can go back to their same sex relationships!

    The Emu face and the Squinty are free!

  10. carrie says:

    the fake romance is over! he found another nice beard or he’s tired of her over skinny body! i’m a bad girl here: when they came in the french restaurant(where my cousin works),they’re nice even if they eat very few

  11. Disco says:

    Oops! Sorry, Kaiser! I knew I read it somewhere :)

    I think you’re right on the money!!! I bet they’re out together by the end of the month.

  12. Anti-icon says:

    I am just vindicated by this break up; ’cause this fauxmance was so TRANSPARENT from the get-go. These two reeked of FAKE.

  13. Dana M says:

    I knew he’d break up with her for Jessica Beil!!

  14. melinda says:

    @ Disco and Kaiser- I think you’re right.

  15. Kaboom says:

    Still not buying the Bradley-is-straight story.

  16. lmp says:

    Too bad, I just Renee to be happy.

  17. Bobby the K says:

    Is Sandy Bullock a complete moron when it comes to men?

  18. laura says:

    definitely looks like there’s some chemistry between cooper and biel in that last pic…

  19. Dana M says:

    I love Renee!!! But I ditto that she looked terrible at that Bradley Cooper’s Inside Actor Studio interview. I mean, come on girl, try to look good for your man. Get some clip on hair extensions or something. Maybe she is going through depression. Poor thing.

    I wish her well and hope she finds a good guy soon.

  20. Iggles says:

    His eyes creep me out. They’re so pale. :-x

  21. How convenient. His movie, Limitless, arrives in theaters today!

  22. Samantha says:

    Renee needs to stop acting like some demure southern belle thinking it will land her some kind of everlasting gentleman. She behaves in such an insecure way its very unbecoming. Stop being a doormat, Renee. Be the independent woman you claim to be and start giving guys sh!t and they will fall at your feet. They really do, it’s sick but that’s what guys respect. Fuckers…..

  23. Kim says:

    How gay is he? pllleeaaassee!

  24. Truth says:

    Brad, you did the right thing. There are women right now that are lining up to be with you. How could you in good conscious not service their needs.
    Now be off and do your duty…

  25. TeeTee says:

    unfortunate, BUT I had NO idea they were supposedly “together” until you guys here told me..seriously?

    I guess Biel is going for another fixed relationship on paper AGAIN.

  26. AngelMay says:

    I don’t see Renee as the standard beard. I think she falls in love with gays. It happens.
    Biel, get on this!

  27. Quercus says:

    As long as he doesn’t take up with Jennifer Love Hewitt. Their children would have unconscionably pointy chins.

  28. mln76 says:

    Oh wow it looks like Star may have had a scooip the question of course is Biel or Bullock??? I’m betting Biel. Which in my opinion is a downgrade at least sourpuss Renee used to be talented.

  29. Sue says:

    The photos of Bradly and Sandra are FAKE the picture of Sandra was taken on Monday, March 7th, 2011 and not March 5th as Star repots and Bradly was not even there with her Star Photoshop them together for their story. SEE THE PHOTOS HERE

  30. Amanda G says:

    I am thrilled if this is true! He is way too hot for Squinty!

  31. Myra says:

    If she was willingly his beard(and he hers, who the hell knows?), then that was her choice. So I don’t think I’d say I feel sorry for her. Even if he’s bi or actually straight, their relationship always felt so fake. Beard or not, though, I’m sure it’ll look bad if he starts being seen with Biel right away.

    On a totally shallow note, Biel and Cooper do look really good together.

  32. Crash2GO2 says:

    I NEVER liked their body language together in photos. I remember one casual one where he was sort of gruffly hugging her at a stoplight – sort of like you would hug a brother you were fond of. Certainly not a woman you cherished.

  33. Someone Else says:

    @Quercus –

    Ha! :D

  34. Madison says:

    When I heard BC took his mother to NY for his movie premiere and Renee stayed in LA I knew it was over. Always got the phony user vibe from BC too, he would be better off dating Justin Timberlake whose more his type than a fauxmance with an actress like Jessica Biel.

  35. Peachy says:

    You can like the life you’re living, you can live the life you like, you can even marry Harry, and mess around with Ike!~
    Roxie Hart

    Glad Bradley is so supportive.

  36. Relli says:

    I don’t know biel doesn’t have a big enough name for him to jump off to if he hook up with her I bet its underwraps. Sandi and him did that weird steve movie, so maybe justfriends touching base… uh if sandra b was my friend I would be checking up on her too, sad year.

  37. Anon says:

    Ugh – count me in with those who think this was a fake relationship from the get go. Don’t forget that when he and Renee “got together” back in 2009 this came on the heels of him having several solo private dinners with eligible Hollywood ladies – Jennifer Aniston, Rachel McAdams, Denise Richards. The tabs tried to link him to each one, and then all of a sudden he and Renee had a dinner together and were reported to “be together.” It seemed to me at the time that he was almost interviewing for the job of his girlfriend – after all the gay rumors have followed him, the questions surrounding his divorce and rumors over domestic violence, and he was trying to break out as the next big Hollywood male star at the time.

    Given the way they came “together,” the way they’ve acted while “together,” and the rumors about him, I’ve never believed this to have been a real relationship. And People trying to make them “One of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples” is hilarious.

  38. the original bellaluna says:

    So Man-Slut-Douchey dumped Squinty. Or vice versa. Whatever. The whole fauxmance wreaked of “fauxmance-ness.”

    Colour me cynical; whatever.

  39. darlene says:

    I, too, feel he is gay and she was his beard. No loss that they “broke up”. No tears here.

  40. bagladey says:

    Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper look good as a couple.

  41. Bella Luna says:

    Yeah I could not believe it when they came out as a couple and I kept thinking the tabs got it wrong, but they didnt! It was crazy!! She used to be cute but now she looks like her face is melting off.

  42. Myra says:

    What about Abbie Cornish? Maybe it’ll turn out that she wouldn’t mind playing along for a bit.

  43. Henriette says:

    I wish they’d both just come out!!! We don’t care that you’re homosexuals, folks.

  44. Heather says:

    Nooooooooooooooooo, I’m so devastated for Renee. She deserves a man who won’t fuck her around.

  45. beth says:

    omg, that completely blindsided me!
    maybe it wouldnt if i kept track of the tabs…

  46. Kimberly says:

    Dang he has the bets hair plugs/transplant EVER!!!

    Just a few years ago he had the worst hairline NOW he has such luscious locks!!

    btw don’t think that him and renee were ever together. It’s called PR.

    The powers that be have been trying to get him to become a brad pitt/clooney type of sex symbol/star and Jessica B has no career of her own because she isn’t very talented. She should really just go back to TV . . .

    Such a sad pair they deserve each other and more PR because they’re funny!

  47. Newbie says:

    I like her as an actress, but dayum. Her face looks psycho in that top shot.

  48. ray ban says:

    The Ray Ban UK distinct sunglasses is so beautiful!I like it.Very can try it.

  49. Third eye wide awake says:

    Bradley Cooper is using his way to the top. He was a nobody a few years ago! I wonder which woman he’ll creep next, on his climb to the top? Watch out ladies, never trust anybody whose eyes do not sit level in their head.They are creepers who will get stars to beard for them, on their climb to the top. In this case “on his creep to the top”

  50. tracking says:

    Bradley pings on my gaydar as well. Renee is a mystery.

  51. Maritza says:

    Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper would make a pretty nice couple, even if it were make believe.

  52. jo says:

    There’s something really phony about Bradley Cooper, can any-one work out what it is? Or is it that he’s not coming out of the closet as a bisexual?

  53. Ell says:

    He doesn’t ping my gaydar, he pings my douchedar.

  54. lisa says:

    It just seems like all those couples that are so into hiding their relationship end up breaking up. Maybe all that keep it private ain’t working so well.

    I actually like Renee a lot. I think she has a really cute quality about her. I don’t like her hair.. but it always looks bad.. even in movies.

    I never got any affection vibes from either of them, and this break up was really out of the blue. They were photographed out to dinner one week, she was on the Actor’s Studio with him, she was there for him when he lost his father, they were seen shopping for homes. but never any affection.

    I really doubt he would ever hook up with Sandra. She has a child and that would mean he had to step up, especially after the whole Jesse thing.

    I don’t know about Biel either. She is not what one would call a rising STAR. If he wanted that he would go after some of the actresses that are really being taken note of.

    I say no to both. He and Renee were a very random hook up. Coming right around the time he was rumored to be with Jennifer Aniston.. So he likes the unexpected..

  55. Jilly Bean says:

    A couple can only work if the girl is as hot or hotter than the guy…. so thier break up makes sense…

  56. Nancy says:

    Oh man I’m kind of disappointed I thought they’d last at least a little longer, oh and I don’t think he’s gay I just don’t get that vibe from him.

  57. arock says:

    call me.

  58. Laura says:

    “Call Taylor Swift”. Kaiser, you make me laugh. Both are moving on to their next fake relationship.

  59. jasper 13 says:

    My bet is that the next woman with Bradley will be a famous star and it will be temporary. His hair transplant worked out fantastic, and he will claw his way to the top.

  60. Lee says:

    Too many choices, too much temptation.

  61. Kim123 says:

    Poor Renee In the current People magazine they have a quote when asked if marriage was in her future”I’m very happy and I can only hope I’m headed down that path.”

  62. Crash2GO2 says:

    @Kim123: Honestly, I hardly know what to think of Rene anymore. Like another person said, she is a blank slate. She seems to make TERRIBLE choices in men. Maybe she is just like me – unlucky in love. *heavy sigh* ;)

  63. courtney says:

    these two were never going to last she’s too needy for a stable relationship

  64. Dea says:

    I never liked this guy – I do not know why. I can see Jessica more with him than Sandra. Sandra is quite mature and is not looking for any fun or just dating at the moment. As far as I can tell she is happily single and enjoying her motherhood more than anything else.

  65. dahlia1947 says:

    WOw, they did? I didn’t think they would… But the pics of him and Sandra? Who knows if that was the reason they finally broke it off?

  66. junk573r says:

    Wow, that rayban comment is the first spam I’ve seen on this site. That was confusing. I kept trying to read it like a normal comment..

  67. Sue says:

    dahlia1947@ the picture of him and Sandra are fack Star mag photoshop a photo of Sandra having lunch at Quattro restaurant at the Trump SoHo hotel by herself and a photo of Bradly at the airport together to make it look like something going on between them.


  68. Belle Epoch says:

    Remember the Blind Item about a couple in which the guy was actually involved with the woman’s BROTHER, and the three had an “arrangement”? Could this be the threesome? Don’t know how old Renee’s brother is, but she has one.

  69. di butler says:

    Renee, Taylor Swift, and Jessica Biel, 1800-rentabeard.

  70. Fuzzy Cat says:

    It would be nice to see Renee Zelleweger and John Stamos together, if he is still single.

  71. slim27 says:

    renee is ugly. Face facts, that woman is not attractive at all, i wonder how bradley managed all this time.
