Both Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen have broken up with long time boyfriends lately. Andy’s boy toy Clifton Dassuncao, aka Brazilian Andy Samberg seems to have completed his graduate program at Harvard and gone off to start his life away from his 49 year old boyfriend of just under two years.
Anderson and his boyfriend of almost a decade, Benjamin Maisani have also announced an amicable split. Anderson issued a statement today saying that he and Benjamin have not been romantically involved for quite some time.
A spokesperson for Anderson provided a statement to Daily Mail, “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.”
The two appear to remain roommates in Anderson’s Greenwich Village firehouse. They continue to be seen working out together in the gym. Clearly, the separation is amicable. The two also co-own a retreat in Trancoso, Brazil that they brought in 2016. The couple frequently traveled to Brazil during their relationship often with Andy Cohen and a group of friends.
Anderson is already seeing a younger guy. Victor Lopez is a 33 year old physician in Dallas, Texas who Anderson has been visiting quite frequently as of late.
Ah spring is in the air and it’s time to leave old relationships and start new ones. Single Andy will be back to his former role as a circuit raisin as soon as thing heat up again in P-Town. So if you’re a twink that loves to be objectifies, it’s time to start your summer body work out!
