After reportedly splitting from on-off girlfriend Zoë Saldana, Bradley Cooper is set to take his mum along to the Oscars 2013 as his red carpet date. And yet, while the actor being forced to deny rumours of a romance with 'Silver Linings Playbook' co-star Jennifer Lawrence, friends insist that Zoë Saldana is happier than ever with her apparent single girl status.
Zoë Saldana's best gal pal Gabrielle Union has come forward to People to explain that the newly single actress is doing "great" after her recent split from Bradley Cooper.
According to Gabrielle, she and Saldana had a special girly night to celebrate New Year's Eve - and the 'Words' actress was as spirited and "dope" as ever for the last night of 2013:
"Our girl time is usually spent singing, drinking and dancing, and that's exactly what we did [on New Year's Eve]."
Bradley Cooper is also doing well following the split, having received a 'Best Actor' Oscar AND BAFTA nomination for his stellar performance in critically acclaimed film 'Silver Linings Playbook'.
However his newly single status has unfortunately coincided with co-star Jennifer Lawrence's split from Nicholas Hoult, which has led to much of the media speculating as to whether Jen and Brad will get together for real.
Brradley Cooper was quick to dismiss the ridiculous rumours by saying he was old enough to be the 'Hunger Games' star's father.
We wonder if he and on-off girlfriend Zoë Saldana will be able to reconcile their differences for a third time?
