Cooke Maroney and actress Jennifer Lawrence tied the knot on Saturday in a lavish ceremony at the historic Belcourt mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. The ceremony was attended by celebrity friends of the couple including Adele, Cameron Diaz, Emma Stone, and Kris Jenner.
Maroney, 34, and Lawrence, 28, reportedly met back in May 2018, having been introduced by J-Law’s friend, Laura Simpson. They were first seen together in public, walking arm-in-arm in New York City, in June 2018.
Jennifer and Cooke confirmed their engagement back in February 2019, following rumors that were sparked when J-Law was spotted wearing a “massive rock” while out on a dinner date with Maroney in New York.
“He’s my best friend so I want to legally bind him to me forever. And fortunately, the paperwork exists for such a thing,” Jennifer later said during a June 2019 interview on the podcast NAKED with Catt Sandler. “It’s the greatest. You find your favorite person in the planet and you’re like, ‘you can’t leave.’ So I wanted to take that offer.”
Fans of Jennifer Lawrence have been asking about her new hubby Cooke Maroney. They want to know what he does for a living and how much is his net worth in 2019.
