Jennifer Lawrence has struck a deal with a very special high-end art dealer:
She has agreed to marry him!
Indeed, according to multiple outlets, the Oscar-winning actress is now engaged to someone named Cooke Maroney.
The 28-year old actress was spotted out and about in New York City over the weekend wearing what Page Six described as a “massive ring" while dining at Raoul’s, an upscale French restaurant.
“It was a giant rock. They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it,” a source told this section of The New York Post, adding:
“The ring was very noticeable. They were sitting back in a corner. She was wearing a cute black dress with white polka dots.”
A few days prior to this outing, Lawrence and Maroney were seen in The Big Apple's West Village, also looking like two people very much in love.
News of Lawrence and Maroney’s romance went viral in June of 2018, making this a semi-fast engagement.
They've only been dating for about six or seven months.
The two were subsequently spotted together in Paris, Rome and New York on multiple occasions, with one insider saying the following to Us Weekly about the relationship:
“They definitely appear to be in it for the long haul.
“Cooke plays very coy when speaking about her to his friends and colleagues. He is clearly smitten about her.”
The beloved Hunger Games star was previously linked to Nicholas Holt from 2011 to 2014... Chris Martin in 2015 ... and director Darren Aronofsky from 2016 to 2017.
This bombshell report now raises a very obvious question to readers and fans: Who the heck is Cooke Maroney?
A few facts about the future Mr. Jennifer Lawrence:
- As mentioned above, he works as an art dealer.
Specifically, he works at the Gladstone 64 gallery in New York’s Upper East Side -- and one of the gallery’s biggest clients is Lena Dunham’s artist father, Carroll Dunham.
- His parents own a farm. For real!
According to Cosmopolitan, Cooke’s mom and dad, James Maroney and Suki Fredericks, own Oliver Hill Farm in Vermont, where he grew up.
- He isn't the jealous type.
This is just an assumption, but Lawrence brought Maroney as her date to the September premiere of The Favourite, the Oscar-nominated movie that stars her ex, Hoult.
But Lawrence has said on record that she remains close to all of her exes.
“I don’t think that you can have any sort of bad relationship with anybody if you’re just blunt,” she told Marc Maron on a podcast in February 2018.
“Everybody always knows how you feel at all times and there’s no lying, it’s just honesty. Everybody’s a good guy to each other. …
Every time I go through a breakup, it’s not like my heart isn’t broken. They just never did anything to like, devastate me. They were just good people.”
Well, she'll never go through a breakup again. Hopefully.
Congrats to Cooke Maroney and Jennifer Lawrence!
