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.
