After seven years of marriage, most of which were rumored to be rocky, Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have separated. Their reps issued a joint statement which read as follows:
We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate,” their publicists said in a joint statement. “They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time.”
They didn’t mention who did the dumping here, but I’m going to assume it’s Reese. It’s hard to say when Reese finally called it quits, but I’m guessing it was right around the seven or eight hundredth time Ryan called Lance Bass a “hottie” and doodled things like “Ryan Gyllenhaal,” “Ryan Phillippe-Gyllenhaal” and “Jake Phillippe” with little hearts around it on the notepad next to the phone.
