Yesterday in my post about Bradley Cooper and Huma Abedin dating, I wondered about where the leak was coming from. I don’t think anyone had BCoop and Huma on their bingo card and Page Six cited multiple sources apparently from both Bradley and Huma’s camps who confirmed the relationship. I’ve not yet seen any pap shots yet of them together so it’s not like they were getting ahead of any photos coming out so… if the people close to them are talking, and were given the go-ahead to talk, is there more here?
Interesting development… yesterday morning, just as everyone was gossiping about Bradley and Huma, Deadline had an exclusive: Freida Pinto will star in the series adaptation of Huma’s memoir, Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds. Coincidence or Conspiracy?
You will note, the news of Bradley and Huma’s situation made headlines around the world. There was no subsequent denial, and publicists were for sure contacted. Instead, the item that does get released while Huma was in the public consciousness is about the series. No matter what the real strategy is behind this play, it’s a smart move to take advantage of the moment and generate interest in the project. People are talking about you anyway, you might as well direct their attention to the work that you’re doing. It’s not like the investors will mind. And it might even attract more investors too. I’m not saying that this is the reason why we found out about Bradley and Huma’s romance. I’m just saying the timing is fortuitous.
