Blake Lively & Penn Badgley Split

Gossip Girl stars Penn Badgley and Blake Lively have split, their rep confirms to

“They’re professionals,” a source told Us Weekly, which reports the split happened in mid-September. “They’re still good friends and hang out on the set.”

Blake and Penn (both 23) had been dating for over two years. Last week, the pair was spotted sharing a kiss on the cheek and a hug on the set of Gossip Girl.

Blake was spotted spending time with Ryan Gosling earlier this month at Disneyland.

    yes!with Ryan Reynolds .The rumors are true

  • tara

    oh I like like like them together, such a great couple
    maybe they r always together on set, it get boring sometimes. Maybe 2, 3 months later they will find each other again and come back together
    not that I’m obssessed but they looks like they re matched in heaven :))))

    @JC: Ryan Reynolds is married to ScarJo and no way is he cheating on her especially not with Blake Lively. I can not like this girl because there is way too many sources saying she was having an affair with Affleck. I adore Garner and the mother she is to those kids, shame on Lively and Affleck IF this is true.

  • Karm

    Jj did u delete the Justin T and Biel Us Weekly cover post?

  • Franck

    well well well, not a surprise at all. Blake starting loving herself too much and thinking she is a movie star already. What a Diva !

  • Ayesha


    I agree. ryan reynolds is married to scarjo and if ryan did cheat with blake then thats a major downgrade.

  • Butter_Fly


    I’m wondering the same thing. I was about to post something but it was gone before I could go back to it. Interesting.

  • hmmm

    Now her and Ben can run off into the sunset together. Jennifer will not mind. She’s rarely ever seen out with him, except for the obligatory photo on occasion.

  • Alicia

    wtf is up with these haters? Why say Blake cheated when there is NO proof whatsoever !! She’s a nice girl who did nothing wrong to you

  • Rockstar

    @JC Did you mean Ryan Gosling?

  • job

    i think something’s between her and ryan gosling

  • Roo

    I can not believe it, I hope to return :( :( :( :(

  • betsy

    And Jared the point is………………………..GET THE HELL OVER IT!!!!

  • Dance In The Dark

    I guess their huge egos finally couldn’t fit in one room together ….

    Urgh, he is awful. Even in photos he just looks completely smug, arrogant and obnoxious.

  • Sally

    Blake would do anything to get to the top of the A list, including dumping her loyal bf. She’s going to sleep her way to the top! Ben Affleck, Ryan Gosling… who’s next?

  • Susan

    Blake and Penn made a nice couple. But, 23 is to young of age to be in a serious relationship in Hollywood. Both of them should enjoy dating other people and working on their careers.

    Blake and Ben never had an affair. That is some crazy rumor haters made up. Ben was to busy directing, acting and doing rewrites for The Town. Ben has always dated women older then him or the same age as him. Jen Garner is 6 months older then Ben. And if you really want critique his dating history…… Gwyneth is the same age, Jen Lopez is 3 years older, Sandra Bullock is 6 years older. I don’t think Ben was interested in Blake.. She is a lovely woman but not his type. She is to young.

  • Kate

    Aw, just like Adam & Rachel. :( Sad.

  • Sammi

    i think the poster meant ryan GOSLING not renolyds

    sad for them. :(((

    to who said they’re a publict stunt.. no thats not them thats ed westwick and jessica szhor theyre the famewhores on gossip girl with their love life

  • michelle

  • NativeNYker
  • yeash

    nooooo I loved them together :’(

  • Katie

    I am soooooooooo……….!!!!!!!!!!!!. happy they have split, much as i think Penn is a great person, they really didn’t suit each other in my opinion. Thought she deserved someone hotter.

  • sara

    doesn’t make sense, they were seen kissing late september and blake talked about her boyfriend penn on letterman early october. wtf

  • gg fan

    I hope its not true because they are really love eachother
    Blake cheating Penn? I think its just a rumor

  • Hyoid

    Well they’re young and lasted 2 years which is a lot in normal standards and astronomical in hollywood’s eyes. They were great together but for this breakup, I can’t really say anything bad about it (or any of the 2 involved), they had a good long run.

  • Kevin

    She can do better

  • laverdadduele

    I couldn’t care less. These two will be has beens in less than 5 years.

  • Fiona

    GG is so boring now. But this will give them even more headache. haha

  • Hmmm

    Im prety sure i called this a months back. Everyone told me I was wrong. Look whos laughing now.

  • Alexi

    they also went shopping together PEOPLE MAG said just days ago…theyre still close and friends then.
