Why do women like older men? Well, one of the most popular reasons seems to be that older men are just more mature and established, both financially and emotionally. However, no matter how much older or wiser men may be, they still often fail to understand the connection between women and jealousy. And celebrity couples are no different.
There may be trouble in paradise for Bradley Cooper, 39, and his younger girlfriend, 22-year-old Suki Waterhouse. According to new rumors, the celebrity couple’s May-December relationship is on rocky turf, because Waterhouse isn’t happy with Cooper still maintaining a friendship with his ex, Renée Zellweger.
Cooper and Zellweger ended their 18-month relationship in 2011, but have remained close since their breakup, much to the dismay of his current sugar baby. The actor has reportedly tried to convince Suki Waterhouse that her jealousy is unfounded, and she’s trying to be mature about it, but she’s having a hard time dealing with Cooper confiding in his ex about personal matters. “Suki feels that she should be that confidante,” revealed one source.
The celebrity couple has also supposedly been talking about moving in together in L.A.—Suki Waterhouse is currently based in the U.K.—and even starting a family, but his recent behavior with Renée Zellweger is said to have thrown a wrench in their plans. “Bradley has a long list of beautiful exes, and the idea of him secretly speaking to them is Suki’s worst nightmare,” said the insider.
What do you think: Would you be jealous if the older man you were dating was still close friends with his ex?
