How the hell did I miss this? Reports are now running rampant that Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy have split, after dating for a very long, pear-assed year. Apparently this gossip has been circulating quietly most of the day, and all sources seem to be using this piece from Extra. Now, Extra is not even close to being a reliable source in the vein of People Magazine or something. But they make an interesting case:
Rumors have been circling for weeks that the “Ghost Whisperer” and her comic BF have called it quits — and “Extra” sources are saying it is true.
A source close to the pair says that Hewitt and Kennedy were supposed to attend an event together last week, but Kennedy arrived solo. He was also not present at Hewitt’s 31st birthday celebration last month. Lisa Stanley broke the news on KEarth 101, and “Extra” confirmed.
The two started dating at the beginning of 2009. No comment from their reps at this time.
Eh. I’ve been wondering this whole time why Jennifer Love Hewitt would stay with a dude who calls her Pear-Ass on a semi-regular basis, but I have no idea if Love was the one to do the dumping. She’s usually the one to get dumped, isn’t she? I mean, that’s her deal, right? She starts dating someone strange, they get engaged after a few dates, they stay engaged forever and then the dude dumps her. That didn’t really happen (allegedly) here, because Jamie seemed to avoid engagement like the plague. Way to break the cycle, Jamie!
UPDATE: Oh, People Magazine is confirming this sh-t! From People: “After a year-long romance, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jamie Kennedy have broken up, a rep has confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE. No further details were available.” So, no word on who did the dumping, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about it in the days to come. My money is on the Pear-Ass being dumped, even though I think Love was really dating down with Jamie. Oh, well. Stay strong, Love! And don’t go back to John Mayer, please, for the love of God.
