Details Behind The Jake/Reese Split

Details Behind The Jake/Reese Split

Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal officially pulled the plug on their three-year relationship over a series of phone calls earlier this month.

Why over the phone? Jake has been in Pittsburgh the past three months shooting his new movie, Love And Other Drugs. Reese has been busy filming How Do You Know? in Los Angeles.

“It broke his heart,” an insider reveals to Us Weekly. “[They] fought constantly in the past few months [but] no one cheated. There was no drama.”

“She felt pressured to wed again but she wasn’t ready,” another insider adds. “She couldn’t give Jake enough and she got cold feet. Jake wanted all of her. She really worried that they didn’t have enough in common… He was great with the kids (Ava and Deacon), but she felt like he didn’t get the whole scope of what that entailed.”

    I’m really surprised that JJ is running with this, the only site I’ve seen with this “confirmed” story is JJ and US Weekly (not exactly a reliable source)!!

    Don’t be stupid and naive.
    Reese W made sure that we read about her “personal” life and her fake relationship – in her case publicity equals $$$.

    I’d think that Reese is too highly thought of by people for her decision to be questioned or for anyone to believe any of the rumors.

    Damn…I was hoping that it had been Hayden Christensen and fugly Ratchel Biatchson who broke up and not Jake/Reese. J&R at least showed more affection and love than the fauxmance btwn Hayden and Ratchel.

    Reese is such a BITCHHHH.
    She had her PR team feed this whole “I left him” story to those stupid magazines that LOVE gossip so that she won’t come out looking like an idiot….like when her marriage to Ryan ended.
    Fact is, that they BOTH agreed it wasn’t working out and neither one of them dumped the other. They BOTH decided to end things on an equal note. Yet Reese is trying to look like she is the one who ended things.
    Her obsession of always trying to come out on top no matter who she hurts in the process is one of the many reasons I don’t like her.
    Jake is a BILLION times better and it won’t be long until he finds the right girl for him and not someone as fake and power obsessed as Reese.

    I agree with you, Jen, (#18). Well said!

    Don’t forget, the very first leak came from her side just a few days before his new movie came out! .I’m starting to believe what the Ryan fans say. She really isn’t a very nice person. She seems very demanding. Those aren’t Jake’s kids. Yet he was good to them.

    Jake dumped ugly midget – did you noticed how happy he seemed during Brothers promotion?

    Jen Says:

    Are you retarded?
    It’s hilarious when stupid f*ckin morons like you see an ACTOR play the role of a gay man in a MOVIE and automatically believe he must be gay.
    Or how about when f*ckin morons like you believe stupid rumors online about actors being gay from equally f*cked up morons and automatically assume that it must be true?
    I love the double-standard though. When an actress plays the role of a lesbian in a movie, no one assumes she’s gay. But when an actor does it, people start jumping up an down yelling “he’s gay” over and over again and start acting as if his girlfriend, fiance, or wife is just a “beard.”
    Some of you f*ckin morons need to to get a f*cking CLUE and STFU.
    Jake played the part of a gay man in a MOVIE. But that doesn’t mean he is gay in real life.
    Just like when actors play the roles of superheroes, etc. in films…but that doesn’t mean they’re really superheroes in real life either. It’s a ROLE they play and if you can’t tell the difference between fiction and reality, then STOP watching movies before you idiots become any dumber than you already are.

    I thought that their 15 minutes was up. The only places still going on about the end of the showmance are JustJared and US Weekly-both on the payroll to go to for PR by Reese’s PR team. Reese must have finally found a straight man she really wants to date and Jake must have finally realized that whole bearding campaign didn’t work and was killing off the rest of his fans and his movie career. I hope we can get the awesome Jake back.
