The film, Brüno, was released in July 2009.
Several controversies surround the new film; Cohen made headlines while introducing an award at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards. Dressed as an angel, Cohen landed in rapper Eminem's lap after an "problem" with his wire harness. Cohen then exposed himself onstage to Eminem's cursing and threats. It was later revealed that the duo had planned the gag together. A lawsuit was also announced in May of 2009,
when a woman claimed she was disabled during a shoot for Cohen's new movie. The woman is suing for $25,000 in damages.
While Cohen is extremely private about his personal life, one bit of good news was made public in 2007. He and his fiancée, Australian actress Isla Fisher, welcomed their first child, daughter Olive, in October of 2007. The couple currently splits their time between Los Angeles and London.
