Ryan and Reese Separate

According to the latest scoop at TMZ.com, Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon have officially called it quits and are now separated.

The couple’s rep released a statement to TMZ Monday morning that says “We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time.”

Apparently, the celebrity couple had been struggling with their marriage for quite some time. Although the two have only separated for now, Reese is in the process of speaking with a divorce lawyer to dissolve the marriage for good.

I think it’s always sad when couples like this divorce, especially when there are little children involved. It seems, however, that Reese and Ryan really tried to make it work for the sake of their kids before taking such a huge step. Things must have been really bad between them for Reese to have to contact a divorce lawyer.

Note from Celebitchy: It seems like things came to a head for Ryan and Reese while Ryan was promoting his new film, “Flags of our Fathers.” There were reports that Ryan and Reese were fighting at the premiere, and the fact that Ryan is working must have made it painfully obvious how much more successful Reese is. According to IMDB, Ryan is filming another movie and has two more coming up. Reese has three films that have been announced but are not filming yet.

    Let’s see here, he basically said the other day that he likes it when they’re apart, and he’s previously commented that he’d rather sit on a beach and smoke pot all day than work and be a family man. Gee, didn’t see that one coming. It is however too bad because they’ve been together so long & did try to make a go of it!

  3. Celebitchy says:

    You bet your sister 500 bucks that Reese and Ryan would last?! That’s a lot of cash to lose on a bet.

  4. Action says:

    Hm… I think I would have bet $5 they’d split, but no way I’d ever bet they’d stay together!

    Oh man, sucks for the cute kids. Maybe now Reese’ll find someone more towards her caliber and Ryan’ll… Ryan’ll…? I forgot what I was going to say. Maybe it was all that reefer I was tokin’ up on.

  6. Mary says:

    well a guy my sister works with (fashion design in NYC) swears he slept with ryan, i guess it is pretty “well known” in some circles that ryan is well, gay. living in LA we all kinda know most of the guys in the industry hook up with other men, i guess this doesn’t mean they are gay, ryan could just have gay tendencies.

  7. marines all the way says:

    what a load of crap, why is it everytime a guy leaves a girl automatically he’s gay, you dont see us callin our ex’s lesbians.

  8. DogRunner says:

    Gosh….I was hoping that this one would last.

    What are the stats now for a marriage surviving in Hollywood? 1% or is it 0.5%. Can’t remember.

    I think all of us saw it coming, but it’s still amazingly sad.. I agree with you, Celebitchy: these two tried very hard for the sake of their adorable children, and it’s a pity they couldn’t make it after all!
