Although reps for Jake Gyllenhaal and Reese Witherspoon claim they have not split, friends say, “Yes, they have!” And now Reese has turned to her ex-husband, Ryan Phillippe, for comfort. Reese and Ryan divorced in 2007 after eight years of marriage and have two kids, Ava, 10, and Deacon, 6.

Rumors of Reese and Jake first dating began when the two co-starred in the thriller movie Rendition in 2007, but they never confirmed the gossip — that is until they were spotted vacationing together in France and Morocco in the summer of 2008.

Now, a source tells BettyConfidential that after two years together, Jake, 28, was pressing Reese, 33, to tie the knot and she kept putting it off, saying her kids were not ready.

“Her kids love Jake, so he knew that was not the case,” the insider says. “He finally gave her an ultimatum saying that either they marry by Christmas or they split up.”

Reese had also been talking to her ex, Ryan, more and more, which didn’t sit well with Jake. “He knows Ryan is the father of their children and Reese has always had contact with him, but the talking just became too frequent. He feared she was seeking advice from Ryan.”

  1. They were so good together, but if she’s not ready I wouldn’t have pushed the subject. My husband and I were together for 9 years before we got married. I came out of an abusive 1st marriage.

    We would still be together, but it was until dead do us part. He died almost 5 years ago. I still feel no one can replace him or come close.

  2. I cried when I heard Reese and Ryan were divorcing… so if they get back together I will be happy. Cruel Intentions. Maybe Jake need to take what he can get. He’s gotten 2 yrs and she has only beeen divorce about that long, so remarrying is movong too fast in my eyes. Reese take your time….

  3. its refreshing to see a woman not be in a rush for marriage. so many woman want to be married to feel complete or worthy. i like that reese isn’t one of those kind of women. but i’d marry jake! what a perfect man.
