Anderson Cooper has photographed himself enjoying a vacation with Andy Cohen in Croatia. His photos come in the aftermath of the discovery that his long term gay partner, Ben Maisani, had been having an affair with another man.
Cooper initially flew to Croatia on Saturday, August 11 with his partner of three years, Maisani, only to discover a day later that the Daily Mail had released photos of Maisani kissing another man in New York City's Central Park.
Shortly after the revelation, friends Kelly Ripa and Andy Cohen arrived on the island to accompany Cooper. It is unclear whether Maisani is still vacationing with the celebrity clan.
"Anderson was with Ben in Croatia when he was told about the photos," a source told the Daily Mail regarding Maisani's infidelity.
"They flew to Croatia on (Saturday) August 11, one day after the photos were taken. Anderson's upset - who wouldn't be?" the source added.
Andy Cohen is an openly gay Bravo host and a longtime friend of Cooper.
Cooper posted several Instagram photos of sunsets on his vacation. Cohen posted the same photos, and at one point, Cooper tweeted the caption: "Look who just took the same instagram pic as me @bravoandy."
Another Instagram photo shows Anderson and Ripa, also a talk show host, sitting together and smiling.
Just a few weeks ago, Anderson announced that he was homosexual in an email to writer Andrew Sullivan.
"The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud," the email read.
Cooper is the host of the political debate show "Anderson Cooper 360" on CNN.
