Anderson Cooper and his longtime partner Benjamin Maisani have called it quits, Page Six is reporting.
Cooper has been getting cozy with a 33-year-old Dallas doctor named Victor Lopez since splitting from Maisani, Daily Mail reported.
“Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago,” Cooper, 50, said in a statement Thursday. “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 site adds that Cooper has flown down to Dallas no fewer than five times since December to see the doctor. The pair have even appeared together in photos celebrating Mardi Gras and lounging in hotel rooms.
Lopez’s Instagram account has since gone private.
Cooper and Maisani went public with their relationship back in 2015 after making a hand-in-hand red-carpet debut.
Despite splitting, Cooper and Maisani were photographed this week leaving their Greenwich Village home.
