Anthony Weiner has been spotted in New York City just hours after news broke that his ex-wife Huma Abedin is reportedly dating Hollywood star Bradley Cooper.
His outing in the Big Apple comes amid news that his ex-wife and Cooper are reportedly dating after being set up by Anna Wintour.
The rumored power couple have been seeing each other for several months in secret, according to Page Six, and even arrived at the Met Gala together in May before parting ways to keep their affair under wraps.
Abedin, 46, formerly a top aide to Hillary Clinton, and Bradley, 47, are both good friends of the longtime Vogue editor, 72.
Weiner, whose sexting with a 15-year-old girl led to a conviction as sex offender, had remained out of the public eye for the most part in recent years.
That changed last month, when he took to Twitter to promote his radio shows on 77 WABC, one of which he co-hosts with Guardian Angels founder Curtis Sliwa.

‘Bradley has been quietly dating Huma for a few months now, [and] they’ve been keeping it really quiet,’ the insider said.
The source added that Abedin has confided that she was in a relationship, but was keeping the identity of the ‘new man’ in her life from even them.
The relationship with the A-list actor is a far cry from Abedin’s marriage to Weiner, who was sentenced to 21 months in prison in 2017 for sexting a minor.
She wrote about the harrowing experience – which saw her caught in the middle of the media circus caused by her husband’s lurid behavior – in a 2021 memoir, Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds. In it she revealed that she didn’t lost her virginity till she was with Weiner at 32-years-old.

‘I had my heart broken, dragged out, stomped on, humiliated. I lived with shame, in shame, for so long,’ she told The Cut in a 2021 interview before the release of her memoir, ‘In hindsight, I was in extreme trauma.’
Abedin told The Cut that the memoir was Wintour’s idea, adding that the famously icy editor was one of her strongest sources of comfort, and came to her ‘rescue’ during the public turmoil caused by her husband, who she shares a 10-year-old son with.

Many were shocked – including his ex-wife, former Hilary Clinton aide Huma Abedin – to see that among the messages he sent to other women included a picture of his crotch while lying next to his sleeping, then-four-year-old son.
