[Lainey Gossip] He took off for the desert recently. To relax. And party. Without his girl. And gets high and hooks up with random men online (he likes them super pretty and super jacked), inviting them to his hotel room for a night of drugs and sex.
Two problems here.
First, he’s a recovering addict and second, when he goes on these tears, he doesn’t use condoms. It’s the kind of reckless behaviour he’s been able to control through much of his success and for many years now. Curiously though, the last time this happened it was also during one of his transformations. Back then though, there was no explosion of social media and everyone taking pictures. Considering that he’s been hooking up with dudes who are on the young side (but totally legal), he’s risking being exposed by someone who’s out to show off and exploit.
It’s Bradley Cooper!
His Girl: Suki Waterhouse
Lainey Gossip never actually solves her blind items, but she drops hints.
Just a few days before this blind item, she ran a post about how Bradley Cooper had transformed his body for his upcoming role in American Sniper. Then, while talking about her annual Smut Soiree, Lainey mentioned that:
Our restrooms and gift bags were stocked with Excel gum. Helpful for someone like Bradley Cooper if he’s ever looking to pick up in the desert.
We don’t know if Bradley Cooper is gay. Perhaps he is bisexual. Perhaps he is experimenting. Perhaps he is straight but gets so wrecked that he can’t tell the difference between men and women.
What we do know is that Bradley Cooper has admitted in the past that drugs and alcohol nearly cost him his life. For example, when his role on Alias dwindled, Cooper was in bad shape. From USWeekly:
“And then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to f—ing kill myself.” Cooper took the drastic step of asking series creator and director J.J. Abrams to write him off of the show — even though he had zero job prospects at the time. “J.J. was like, ‘Okay.’ He probably would’ve fired me, anyway.”
Making matters worse for the future A-lister at the time: A serious struggle with drugs and alcohol. “If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life,” he observes.
So while we don’t know and we don’t care if Bradley Cooper is gay or straight or bisexual or experimenting or confused, we do care about the fact that he may have behaved so recklessly in the desert. Drugs? Reckless. Unprotected sex? Reckless. Sex with strange men? Reckless. Doing all three at once? Incredibly reckless and self-sabotaging.
And if Bradley Cooper thinks that no one in the desert takes photos with their phone… he should guess again.
Congratulations to Kahdafi for being first with the correct answer!
