Why Renee Zellweger And Bradley Cooper Split

They had one of Hollywood’s most secret yet solid relationships, so why did Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper call it quits?

“If I had to pick any possible mistress it would be Brad’s career,” an insider told US Weekly magazine. “He worked really hard to get into leading man status.” Cooper made his mark in The Hangover and is now at the top of the US box office with Limitless.

The two spent a lot of time apart with various filming commitments, with Renee choosing to support Cooper’s up-and-coming career. However she recently hinted that a third Bridget Jones movie is in the works.

Zellweger, 41, met Cooper, 36 in 2006 but only started dating two years ago. Cooper gushed about her just as they moved in together last September: “I can’t say enough about her. I just love her.”

Zellweger ditched the Golden Globes in January to be with him when his father died, and was apparently close to Cooper’s mother Gloria.

Since the breakup Zellweger has been spotted all over New York, enjoying solo meals with only her iPod for company, and hanging out with Sandra Bullock in her Manhattan apartment.
