After nearly three years together, Us Weekly confirmed in this week’s issue that Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal have split. A source claims that the couple bickered and fought constantly over the past few months, leading to a break-up in early December.
The magazine states that Witherspoon’s doubts about Gyllenhaal as a step-father and husband prevented her from saying “I do” again.
“‘She really worried that they didn’t have enough in common,’ the pal says.’”
That combined with her need to devote more time to her children, Ava and Deacon, caused Witherspoon to end things with the Brothers star.
The right lid will come along, you two. Who knows? Perhaps now isn’t your time. Perhaps two years from now is your time. It’s in the hands of fate. That’s all the fortune I have for today. Come back tomorrow. We’ll talk KFed and fast food. Mmmmmmh.
