Zellweger Selling N.Y. for New Romance?

Why would Renée Zellweger sell her two prime co-op apartments on New York City's Upper East Side? If you believe what you read in the tabloids, the reason may be her new (alleged) squeeze, actor Bradley Cooper ("The Hangover"). Zellweger and Cooper were spotted together recently in Beverly Hills (pictured left).

Zellweger bought the pair of New York City apartments, which occupy the full second floor of a building on East 82nd Street, for a total of $8.2 million in 2007 and 2008. One is a three-bedroom, 3.5-bath apartment, made from two apartments Zellweger bought and combined: She is asking $6.975 million. The other is a one-bedroom, one-bath, which is selling for $1.975 million.
