Rumors of a wedding have swirled ever since Anderson Cooper officially came out, but Pulitzer Prize hopeful the Daily Mail wonders if plans are on hold after its paparazzi captured the CNN personality's boyfriend Ben Maisani smooching on another man.
According to the Daily Mail:
Maisani, 39, was spotted in a close embrace with a dark-haired, muscle-bound man in a New York park.
The images may come as a surprise to the CNN news anchor after it was reported last month that he wanted to marry his partner as soon as Labor Day.
There was no hint of upset from Cooper last night who looked typically sharp in a navy suit as he joined other A-listers in New York to watch Beyonce perform at the UN headquarters for World Humanitarian Day.
It is believed that Cooper has been dating Maisani, who owns gay bar Eastern Bloc in Manhattan's East Village for around three years.
They were encouraged to marry last year by Anderson's mother, designer Gloria Vanderbilt. She reportedly helped the pair patch up their relationship after they struggled with conflicting work schedules.
Who knows what boundaries Anderson and Ben have set for their relationship so it's unreasonable to draw heteronormative conclusions from these pictures.
But what do you think, Instincters?
