Bradley Cooper's Dad Dies

Sad news to report--Bradley Cooper's father Charles passed away at the age of 71.

On Sunday night a fire broke out at Bradley's mother's house in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, and now we're getting word his father also passed away over the weekend. The incidents were related, but Bradley's definitely had a rough week.

Bradley's girlfriend Renee Zellweger was scheduled to appear at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but pulled out last minute in order to be by his side.

Bradley was really close to his Dad and even got him a fun cameo on the A-Team movie. "It was one of the best experiences of my life. The guy loves to improvise -- I had to calm him down!" Bradley said on the Late Show With David Letterman recently.

According to People, funeral services for Charles, who was a Stock Broker with Merrill Lynch, have been kept private.

So sad! Our condolences to the family!
