Two familiar faces were missing on Sunday night at the Golden Globes. Unfortunately the reason they were MIA was because of a family tragedy. Bradley Cooper‘s father, Charles, passed away, at the age of 71,¬†after a long illness. Brad’s girlfriend Renee Zellweger also missed the ceremony so that she could be with Brad and his family. Our condolences go out to them.

This has been a pretty horrible week for the couple. A fire broke out at Bradley’s mother’s Philadelphia house on Sunday night. The actor and Zellweger were at the house with family members, apparently. An official reveals, “It was not a very major fire. We didn’t have to use hoses. It was out within a few minutes. Pretty much the fireplace got a little out of control.” No one was hurt fortunately, but adding to the tragedy of losing his father, this must have been pretty traumatic.
