New speculations as to how the marriage between Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe eventually unraveled have emerged in the new issue of Us Weekly. And at the center of the rumors is Ryan’s co-star from Stop Loss, Abbie Cornish. From Us Weekly’s celebrity news blog:
For a married man with two children (Ava, 7, and Deacon, 3), Phillippe was rather open about their affair. On October 10, local Lauren Scott witnessed Phillippe and a blonde, who fit Cornish’s description, kissing at sushi restaurant Kenichi. “I was pretty shocked that he would blatantly cheat on Reese in public,” Scott tells Us. But Witherspoon and Phillippe’s union remained intact – until Witherspoon, 30, was alerted to pictures of Phillippe with Cornish, says a source. When she confronted him about the relationship, “Ryan admitted it was true and said, ‘We just need to end this.’ Reese literally had no choice.”
So, what really happened between these two? Like the Kennedy assasination, or Atlantis, it may just have to remain one of those great mysteries in life. Until the Vanity Fair tell-all interview, at least.
