Reese and Jake Split After Three Years
Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon has split up with Jake Gyllenhaal, her boyfriend for almost three years. They made the split over the phone and there were no third parties involved, Us Magazine reports.
A source from the actor’s camp said that it was the actress who initiated the breakup but the decision was mutual and amicable. He was heartbroken, the source said.
The Brokeback Mountain star had moved in to the Legally Blonde star’s home last year.
Witherspoon believes that she was spending more time with Gyllenhaal rather than with her two kids Ava, 10 and Deacon, 6 from her previous marriage to actor Ryan Philippe (Cruel Intentions). She also said that Gyllenhaal is not the man whom she thinks would be the best stepfather for the kids – not that he didn’t try.
However, it was also said that Witherspoon is not yet ready to settle down again after her divorce with her former husband. Gyllenhaal is said to already want all of her and she cannot commit.
