Anderson Cooper Boyfriend On Yacht

Anderson Cooper Boyfriend On Yacht - Anderson Cooper and his partner Ben Maisani were pictured in New York today, both leaving the CNN anchor's Manhattan townhouse, albeit separately.

Maisani was photographed kissing another man in a public park less than two weeks ago, and the pair were believed to have broken up.

The pictures, accompanied with a video of them on vacation together in Croatia at the weekend, have sparked rumors the couple have reconciled - and perhaps never even broke up.

Cooper was alleged to have gone on the European getaway to get over his broken heart after news of his partner's alleged cheating emerged.

But it appears the news anchor is the forgiving type. Either that or the video adds more fuel to the fire that the couple are in an open relationship.

The video - shot by Croatian network Dubrovnik Internet Television - shows the two men on the upper deck of the yacht chatting together, before joining Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos.

Ripa and her husband joined in on the European destination last week. Bravo's Andy Cohen was already there and is believed to have flown out with Cooper a few days earlier.

Maisani and Cooper were also spotted earlier today leaving the Manhattan fire house the pair share. It had been reported that the news anchor asked his partner to move out and had broken off the engagement after the cheating scandal.

But the recent pictures and video seem to point to the fact they are back together.

According to the Croatian reporter who shot the video, the yacht had been sailing around the Croatian coast for ten days, during which time they visited the Island of Hvar, which he said is one of the 'most expensive places in the country'.

He said: 'They came into Dubrovnik on August 18 around 11pm. When they docked they immediately wanted to go see the Old Town of Dubrovnik.'

Along with Cohen, the two couples left the Princess Iolanthe 41-meter yacht to try and catch a taxi.

But after waiting unsuccessfully for a few minutes and getting increasingly hassled by assembled media, they decided to return to the yacht.

Cooper has been tweeting Instagram images from his vacation since he arrived, but there was no sign that his partner was with him.

There was speculation they were also vacationing with Diane von Furstenberg, who was tweeting images from Croatia at the same time.

Today he tweeted that he saw the new Anderson Live set yesterday, saying it 'looks great', implying he is already back in New york after the vacation.

Pictures of the Eastern Bloc bar owner kissing and canoodling with another man openly in a New York Park were first published by MailOnline more than a week ago.

Maisani was thought to have been on the trip with him when he saw the pictures.

A source told Life & Style that the couple were already on vacation together when photos of the kiss were published.

‘Anderson was with Ben in Croatia when he was told about the photos,’ the source said. ‘They were on a yacht.

‘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 that contrary to reports the couple do not have an open relationship and Anderson has been hit hard by the betrayal.

Anderson has never spoken publicly about his relationship and has made no comment on the photos of his boyfriend.

'Ben runs with a really fast crowd in New York and Anderson always knew that his boyfriend was exposed to young, hot gay men at his bar. But he also believed he could trust Ben to stay faithful to him.'

Cooper revealed he was gay in July, saying: '’The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be more happy.'

A source told the Enquirer: 'Anderson's shattered. he felt secure enough with Ben that he took the bold step of coming out as gay this year. Now he knows they are finished forever.

'Anderson will put on a brave face, but he is absolutely devastated.'

The couple live together at Cooper's converted fire station townhouse and enjoy a low-key lifestyle, working out and going to dinner with friends including Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

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. Anderson Cooper dating Bravo's Andy Cohen

Cooper agreed to cut back on trips abroad, while Maisani said he would do fewer night shifts at his bar. Vanderbilt, 88, was also reportedly encouraging the men to adopt a child.
