OMFG: Is Gossip Girl Dad Matthew Settle Getting Divorced?

Gossip Girl here: looks like the parents on the popular CW show are stirring up just as much drama as their younger counter parts. Matthew Settle (or Rufus, as most of you probably know him) has split with his wife model Naama Nativ a source told Us Weekly. The two recently had a daughter and had been married for four years.

“The marriage was difficult for him. His priority now is his daughter,” the source said.

Sounds like a Rufus-and-Lily-worthy drama. All that has to happen now is for Blake Lively to move on from real-life boyfriend Penn Badgley to Settle, and we’d have an an episode of Gossip Girl. If only life imitated art.

Pictured in happier times, the once-couple attended the U.S. Open Player Party presented by Heineken at Skyline Studios on
August 28, 2009 in New York City.
