Update (2:45 p.m. ET):
It turns out we got too excited too fast. According to what Eva’s rep tells E! Online, she and Ryan are still happily together. Pass us the ice cream, please.
Good news, ladies: according to recent reports, it sounds like Ryan Gosling is back on the market.
According to the Daily Mail, Ryan and girlfriend Eva Mendes went their separate ways right around Christmas — what a bummer! Sources close to the couple are saying that there was no big blow up that led to their breakup. It was simply time to split.
“There is no ill will,” a source assured In Touch. “Neither is rushing out to date other people right now.”
According to the source, trouble in their relationship can be traced back as far as September 2013, and in October, reports started rolling in of Ryan and Eva fighting constantly over Eva’s jealousy. Not that we blame the girl — has she seen her boyfriend? This apparently led to them quietly breaking off the relationship for good around Christmas time when they were still unable to resolve their issues.
Not only were the couple just way too different — Eva likes to be social and Ryan likes to stay in, a source said — but they also realized they’d been together too long that it was time to get married or see other people.
“They knew it was time to take the next step and get married,” a source said. “But neither was sure they wanted that to happen.”
So, what do you think — should we get our champagne glasses ready to toast to a single Ryan Gosling, or are we just getting our hopes up for nothing?
