Relationship Status: Single?

Benjamin has been in a gay relationship with Anderson Cooper, a successful anchor and journalist, since 2009. The couple lived happily together in their lovely Manhattan home.

And one thing they had in common was that they were both introverts. Actually, Benjamin was more low-key because he valued his privacy. For example, he stayed out of the spotlight.

Though the couple was happily dating, Anderson had never revealed his sexual orientation. So, in 2012, he came out about his sexual orientation and publicly accepted it by saying,

The truth is that I’m gay, always have been, and always will be, and I couldn’t be happier, more at ease with myself, or prouder of myself.

The couple married in the same year, according to unconfirmed reports. It was later revealed that Anderson’s mother, designer Gloria Vanderbilt, encouraged the couple to marry.

However, their love life took a turn for the worse when Benjamin was photographed kissing another man in August 2012.

Benjamin denied cheating on his boyfriend. And everything seemed to be on the right track. Anderson and Benjamin then improved their relationship by spending time together, going on vacation, and caring for one another.

Anderson even admitted that he wished to have children and start a family with Benjamin. Anderson’s mother supported his plans as well, praising his idea.

However, the year 2018 brought the shocking news of their journey’s end. A spokesperson for Anderson confirmed the news, stating that Anderson went out to trip five times with Victor Lopez, a 33-year-old doctor.

Cooper explained in a statement that despite being separated from Benjamin, he still has a warm relationship with him as a family member.

Net Worth, Salary

Aside from his collaboration with Anderson Cooper, Benjamin has another side to his life. His first job in New York was at the Morgan Library on Madison Avenue. After a while, he received a better-paying job offer.

As a result, he joined Barracuda, a gay bar in Chelsea. Initially, he barely interacted with others and remained isolated in his own world. But after working in a bar, he completely changed. The bar environment pushed him to engage in more social interactions and helped him gain self-confidence.

As a result, he now owns three gay bars in New York City, including Eastern Bloc, Bedlam Bar & Lounge, and Atlas Social Club.

Benjamin, a handsome young bar owner, has a sizable net worth. His net worth is estimated to be in the millions of dollars. Because of his massive success, he and his partner, Anderson, purchased a massive house in Connecticut. Aside from that, they share ownership of a private home in Brazil.
