Bradley Cooper has a new woman in his life.
The A Star is Born actor has been linked to Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin – the same aide caught up in the leak of over 100 private emails from Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Naturally, there’s quite a story behind how they met. Would you believe it involves the fashion critic of fashion critics, Anna Wintour?
Not to mention, the two secretly attended this year’s Met Gala together, though they kept things hush-hush by walking the red carpet alone.
Below, we have everything you need to know about the incredibly impressive Huma Abedin.

Who is Huma Abedin?
Abedin, 45, is an American political staffer who was vice-chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign for President of the United States. She is currently still chief of staff to Clinton, and is considered her closest former and current aide.
Abedin was born on July 28, 1975, in Kalamazoo, Michigan to her professor parents. Her family is Indian and Pakistani, and she has a brother and sister.
When she was two years old, her family moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, after her parents were offered jobs at the University of Jeddah.
Huma Abedin’s relationship with Hillary Clinton
The 2016 Clinton email probe
One of the most notable aspects of Clinton and Abedin’s relationship is Abedin’s involvement in the momentous Clinton email leak of 2016.
In early October 2016, FBI criminal investigators working on a case involving Abedin’s ex-husband, Anthony Weiner, stumbled upon a number of emails stored on his laptop.
The emails had been sent between Abedin and Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign, and were considered suspicious and potentially relevant to the previous “Clinton server investigation”, which was led by FBI Director James Comey after it was discovered Clinton have been communicating with her staff through a private email server.
The discovery of the emails prompted Comey to reopen that investigation eleven days before the 2016 US presidential election, a decision Clinton said majorly contributed to her election loss to Donald Trump.
Abedin’s new memoir
In 2021, Abedin released her memoir, Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds which reflects on her role as Clinton’s closest advisor. She has even referred to she and Clinton as “partners in crime”.

Abedin has naturally, gotten to know Clinton well through her time working with her, with their time together dating back to 2008.
Prior to 2016, Abedin worked as deputy chief of staff to Clinton when she was US Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.
She was also the travelling chief of staff and former assistant to Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign for the Democratic nomination in the 2008 presidential election.
Speaking to The Associated Press in March, Abedin revealed just how close she and Clinton are.
“We are partners in crime – in adventures that is,” she said. At a promotional event in 2021, she was also full of praise for her longtime boss.
“I’m lucky, you know, she’s a friend and mentor, a boss, and she’s always been there for me, and I’m always going to be there for her.”
Abedin is currently working on a show for Apple TV+ based on Clinton’s new book with daughter Chelsea, called The Book of Gutsy Women.

How did Huma Abedin meet Bradley Cooper?
According to sources to Page Six, it was Vogue editor Anna Wintour who played matchmaker for Abedin and Cooper.
Wintour is close with both, having been an open political supporter of Hillary Clinton over the years, and a very good friend of Cooper’s.
“Anna definitely played matchmaker,” one source told Page Six. “She’s BFFs with Bradley and adores Huma.”
Meanwhile, a Hollywood insider confirmed to the publication that “Bradley has been quietly dating Huma for a few months now, [and] they’ve been keeping it really quiet.

“Bradley broke up with [actress] Dianna Agron and started dating Huma.”
They added: “[Cooper and Abedin] are perfect for each other. They’re both into power and politics and human affairs.”
Does Huma Abedin have children?
Yes, Abedin has a 10-year-old son, Jordan Zain Weiner, who she shares with her ex-husband Anthony Weiner.
What happened with Huma Abedin’s ex-husband Anthony Weiner and his sexting scandal?
Abedin and Weiner married in 2010, but saw their relationship crumble after allegations emerged that Weiner, a former member of the United States House of Representatives, had been involved in a number of sex scandals, some involving minors.
The sexting scandal began in 2011, when the first of Weiner’s sexually explicit photos appeared on his Twitter account by accident.
Weiner, a then-Democratic US Congressman, initially claimed his account had been hacked, but later admitted the images were of him, and that he had been having sexually explicit conversations with multiple women he had met online.
Per CNN, Weiner reportedly said in a press conference: “To be clear, the picture was of me, and I sent it.”
The images emerged just one year into his marriage to Abedin, and a few months before the pair announced they were expecting their first child.
Sadly, this was not the end of Weiner’s inappropriate conduct.
In July, 2013, a gossip website shared screenshots of another sexually explicit conversation Weiner had with a woman that June/July.
At a press conference, Weiner claimed some of the explicit online chats took place after the initial scandal of 2011. Abedin appeared at this presser, and declared her support for her husband.
“What I want to say is I love him, I have forgiven him, I believe in him, and as I have said from the beginning, we are moving forward,” Abedin reportedly said.
The worst of the scandal hit in 2016.
Following a report from the Daily Mail in September 2016, the FBI investigated Weiner for sexting with a 15-year-old girl.
His laptop was seized and on May 19, 2017, he pled guilty to one count of transferring “obscene material” to a minor.
Prior to the announcement of his guilty plea, Abedin filed for divorce against him.
In August 2016, Abedin said in a statement: “After long and painful consideration and work on my marriage, I have made the decision to separate from my husband.
“Anthony and I remain devoted to doing what is best for our son, who is the light of our life. During this difficult time, I ask for respect for our privacy.”
In September 2017 Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison. He served his sentence at Federal Medical Center, Devens, in Ayer, Massachusetts.
This year, the pair’s divorce was finally finalised, with them legally estranged from each other.
Bradley Cooper’s dating history
Cooper was married to Taxi and Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito from 2006 to 2007, with the pair famously ending their marriage after just four months together.
Cooper then moved on to Bridget Jones’ Diary actress Renée Zellweger. They began dating in 2009, three years after their initial meeting on the set of Case 39 in 2006.
Zellweger spent the 2009 Christmas season with Cooper and his parents and they were spotted house hunting in early 2010. They even moved in together, purchasing a US$4.7 million ($6.9 million) home together in Pacific Palisades, California.
The pair eventually split in 2011.
Other stars Cooper has been linked to include Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Lopez, Zoe Saldaña, Irina Shayk, and most recently, Glee actress Dianna Agron.
News of Cooper’s relationship with Dianna Agron only came to light on the day that his relationship with Abedin was revealed.
Sources exclusively told Page Six that the actor had been dating Agron before starting a relationship with Abedin, though the period of their time together is not known.

Deontay Wilder Net Worth: Career Earnings, Biggest Fight Purse & Endorsement Deals Of ‘The Bronze Bomber’ – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Here is everything you need to know about the single hardest puncher in boxing and the former world heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder. This includes his net worth, career earnings and endorsement deals.
Deontay Wilder Net Worth
Deontay Wilder has been a professional boxer since his debut back in November 2008. He has been boxing consistently for over 15 years straight now in the pro ranks, earning more and more money as his career has progressed up to world level.
The 1985-born boxing superstar is one of the most fearsome punchers the sport of boxing has ever seen. Deontay Wilder’s boxing record consists of 43 wins – 42 of which have come via knockout. The only man to go the distance with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder then knocked out in a round in their rematch.
As of December 2023, it is reported that Deontay Wilder’s net worth is somewhere in the region of $30 million (source: Celebrity Net Worth).
Of course, given the fact the Alabama man is supremely wealthy, he likes his fair share of luxury items too. Wilder has acquired real estate, expensive jewelry, flashy cars and various other assets that have contributed to his riches.
Wilder reportedly has eight kids in total from various relationships, including one with his current girlfriend Telli Swift. Evidently a fair amount of Wilder’s earnings in the ring is used on providing for his big family and loved ones. Be sure to see Deontay Wilder’s net worth continue to grow for the remainder of his career, as long as that lasts.
Deontay Wilder Career Earnings
After 46 professional boxing fights, Deontay Wilder’s biggest fight purse is reported to have been around $28 million (source: Forbes). This was reportedly how much ‘The Bronze Bomber’ earned for his rematch bout with Tyson Fury back in February 2020.
Wilder went into the fight as the marginal favorite with the best offshore sportsbooks, given that he was still the reigning champion following his draw with Fury 14 months prior. Despite getting conclusively knocked out in Round 7 of the fight, this still remains the biggest purse of Wilder’s career to date.
Deontay Wilder has reportedly earned a total sum of around $95 million in his professional boxing career from his debut up to now. This is right up there with the likes of heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and is more than the likes of Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Terence Crawford.
The 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze Medallist has been earnings even figure purses ever since he became world heavyweight champion back in January 2015. Of his last 10 fights, just one has been less than seven figures (Washington – $900k). In fact, Wilder has earned around $80 million just from his last five fights.
See the full table below for a detailed breakdown of the purses Deontay Wilder has received for his last 10 fights. All in all, it is fair to say that the 38-year-old isn’t short of a dollar or two. His net worth, salary and fight purses will continue to rise as his career rolls on at world level.

Deontay Wilder Endorsements & Sponsorship
Although the vast majority of Deontay Wilder’s earnings comes from prize fighting, he also earns an extremely lucrative sum of money outside of the ring. These vast endorsement deals from outside of the ring are a big player in boosting Wilder’s net worth and salary.
The 1985-born boxing phenom’s biggest endorsement deal as of today is his partnership with Everlast. Wilder has shown great loyalty to Everlast for several years during his boxing career, and still sports their boxing gear to this day. He also regularly uses Everlast boxing gloves in the ring for his world title fights, as well as during training camps.
Some of Deontay Wilder’s other endorsements include his partnerships with PureKana CBD, Raising Cane’s and IHC Crypto. There is not much else known about Wilder’s endorsements and sponsors outside of his career as a boxer.
All in all, Deontay Wilder’s various sponsorships certainly help boost his net worth. Per Forbes, he reportedly earns an estimated $500,000 per annum through endorsements. Ultimately though it is punching people in the face for a living that pays ‘The Bronze Bomber’ the most money.
