Paula Zahn Became accused of having an extra-marital affair!

Paula Zahn married the real estate tycoon Richard Cohen in 1997. In two decades of their marriage, Paula and her ex-husband welcomed three children– two sons: Austin Bryce Cohen and Jared Brandon Cohen and a daughter, Haley Cohen.

Paula announced that they had decided to divorce in April 2007. Furthermore, the tabloid media stated their divorce due to Paula’s affair. Rumors suggested that Paula saw Paul Fribourg, the CEO of Conti Group and one of Richard’s best friends.

Some sources have reported that Richard found a diary of Paula, where she had written about her love interest in Fribourg. The scandal could not sustain itself outside the tabloid world.

Reasons behind Richard Cohen and Paula Zahn’s divorce

Paula Zahn revealed that she was divorcing Richard because he had mismanaged her 20 years of earnings. She filed a case against Cohen for that matter, but the New York State Court, stated, “It’s not a commercial case. Rather it is a marital dispute masquerading as a commercial dispute.”

The decision of the court silenced Paula Zahn. But the recent news of her then-husband hints that she was living a torturous life with him. Richard was accused of getting addicted to the dating site by former Miss USA Julie Hayek in 2011.

Julie has stated that she fell for Cohen and had even started thinking of spending her life with him. On their first date, Cohen showed his love for her and said, “You better go home and call your mom tonight and tell her you’ve met the man you’re going to marry.”

But who knew? He was playing the game of dating and dumping. Julie said that he never contacted her from that day onwards. Later, she found that he logged onto the dating site with the username Flyboyny5987 for hours. Same accusations to Cohen came from an interior designer, Nanjoo Joung, who told the story to Page Six. There are chances the same thing happened to Paula. After all, habits are not habituated all of a sudden.

Did Paula choose not to speak about this? Whatever it might be. Now, it seems like she doesn’t share any relationship with Richard. Paula has become very secretive about her personal life. Presumably, she has not dated anyone after the divorce. She is single at present.
