Anderson Cooper has confirmed that he and longtime partner Benjamin Maisani have split after nine years together.

Benjamin and I separated as boyfriends some time ago,” the 50-year-old news anchor confirmed to Just Jared in a statement. “We are still family to each other, and love each other very much. We remain the best of friends, and will continue to share much of our lives together.”

The last photos we have of Benjamin and Anderson are from over the summer when they went on a star-studded vacation together with some celeb friends.
