Did Rosie Huntington- Whiteley dump Jason Statham because she didn’t get a ring?

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Jason Statham

We haven’t heard much from either Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham in ages, it seems. She’s been shooting that ill-fated Mad Max reboot, and he’s probably been busy filming a million Statham-y action movies. Neither one of them has had occasion to walk a red carpet in several months, so there’s not really any red-carpet evidence of them together in recent days.

Now a new story in Star would have us believe that there is trouble in mood-lip paradise. About six months ago, Star got a tip that Rosie was pressuring Jason to put a ring on it or else, and it seems that he hasn’t done that. As a result, Rosie is allegedly pissed off and has called off the relationship. Here’s the story:

Another couple bites the dust. Even though she’s one of the hottest supermodels in the world, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham have split, according to an insider, because he refused to commit. “It was almost a year ago that she gave him a marriage ultimatum,” says the source. “But she’s finally accepting that it’s not going to happen.”

The couple, who had been dating for two years, spent the summer apart. Jason, 45, was in New Orleans filming Homefront whilte Rosie, 25, was filming Mad Max: Fury Road in L.A. “I always see myself working, but being a mom will be a big part of me,” Rosie, an English native, recently said. And now that she’s thrown him off, it’s taking all her willpower to not give in to his attempts to get her back.

“She’s heartbroken and has been sitting on the couch with her dog, watching movies,” says the source. “Jason keeps calling, and she wants to pick up the phone so badly — but she’s trying to white-knuckle through. The nights are the hardest, so she usually just turns her phone off.”

Yuck. No good will ever come from pressuring someone else to get married unless one wants to virtually guarantee a few years of resentment before landing in divorce court. If this story is true, Rosie would be better off moving on and finding someone else who isn’t so commitment shy. Is she still a Victoria’s Secret model? Then Leonardo DiCaprio might be a decent (albeit not long-term) jumpoff.

Also, someone please tell me why the Statham wasn’t hired to play Jack Reacher instead of the ridiculously inept Tom Cruise. What a cinematic crime.

    Ah yes, the good old ‘anonymous source’. Am I the only one who gets fed up with all the stories about how women ALWAYS want ‘a ring’? Rosie is a hot 25 year old at the height of her fame. Statham…. well, let’s just say he’s not that great a catch. Obviously I don’t know them, but on the surface I can’t see any particular reason why Rosie would be so anxious to tie this guy down at this stage in her life. More the other way round, I should think.

  2. Becky says:

    I love her black coat in the top picture…

  3. Astrid says:

    Yep he would have a made a great Jake Reacher. I’m so disappointed with Cruise as Reacher.

  4. Emily says:

    Dude is old. If he hasn’t decided to settle down by now, he’s probably never going to.

  5. mommak918 says:

    Hmmm, I think he’s hot. But my husband looks nearly identical to Statham. He’s not Hollywood pretty….but he’s got a rugged, man look. My husband is a bit taller…sooo he does it for me.

  6. Ellie says:

    Does he ever take his sunglasses off? I haven’t seen any of his movies, and I’m trying to figure out if I think he’s hot or not. It’s hard to tell with the big dark glasses.

  7. Mew says:

    Is he a catch or not? Who knows. I think in a logn relationship personalities matter far more than what someone looks like. If outlooks mattered so much as it sometimes seems to, we would pretty much extinct quite fast. Wow.

  8. jasmine says:

    jason’s too hot! she’ll regret it

  9. stinky says:

    he definitely looks like any other pub-thug out there on any given night…….. but i still LIKE him! he got lucky w/ his fame. L-U-C-K-Y.

  10. kayla says:

    I can see why some find Jason to be either hot or not but Rosie is straddling same line.She is so pretty with the makeup and hair in movies and on the runway but makeup up free or even semi she looks likes the average Jane aka Mila Kunis pics walking her dog.

    • Christina says:

      I don’t think I’ve ever seen any truly candid pics of Rosie. I think she knows that she has an image to keep and makes sure not to go out without a full face of make-up. I did read a feature on her in ‘The Guardian’, however, and the writer remarked that she looks much ‘wierder’ and less obviously attractive than she does in photos.

      But that’s the case for many models. Their job isn’t to look good on the street, it’s to look good in photos. A colleague of mine once worked in the fashion industry in Milan. She said that of the models, about half looked stunning even with a bad hangover, and without a scrap of make-up. The other 50% looked completely plain until they’d spent an hour with the hair and make-up people, after which they underwent a transformation. Maybe Rosie is in the latter group?

    I dont like him at all but I love his body language. He’s all manish and walking aggressively and she’s just tip toeing like a pretty little deer behind despite his grip on her hand! lol!

  12. SFRowGuy says:

    I’m not like that J. I don’t need a ring, I just need your sex… And to wake up next to you each morning.

  13. Ally8 says:

    She has given interviews to British fashion glossies saying that she wouldn’t be in this relationship if she didn’t think it was going to lead to being a family with kids.

  14. Violet says:

    He’s old enough to be her father, which is reason enough for her to dump him. Plus she may as well move onto Leo while she’s young enough to appeal to him.

  15. Anonny says:

    A relationship with a 20-year age difference (and one half is still in her 20s) comes with an expiration date, that’s all.

  16. cocovenus says:

    They’re all over the British tabloids today on a night out together along with David Beckham and James Corden so they’re still together thus far. As an aside I will never see the appeal in Kelly Brook`s rough looking sloppy seconds…

  17. sweetpea says:

    Its probably just me but they look like the have great sex…

  18. taxi says:

    20 years from now, Rosie will still look good. Jason at 65? Maybe not. Looks aren’t everything but unless he has great stunt doubles, his body may be taking beatings which will not bode well for his agility & comfort in his elder years.

  19. sickinbed says:

    No ladies, he’s not hot at all. Nothing to see here, every one go on about your business.. (hides Jason Statham sized pillow case behind back, plots immediate capture and slowly side steps away to avoid attention).

  20. Carolyn says:

    Statham is a “bit of a geezer” (said in my best Michael Caine British accent). Loved him in The Italian Job.

    Oh surely he and Rosie’s relationship is based on the physical. Can’t imagine what the heck they’d talk about.

    Rosie’s young and gorgeous. She’s not wanting to get married anytime soon.

    Just what exactly webpages as well as blogs perform the scubadivng town talk almost all about?
