The Fairytale Has Ended

TMZ is reporting that Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have decided to call it quits on their marriage. A representative for the couple has already released a statement concerning the couple's desire to break-up ... apparently things have been building for some time now leading to this split:

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have separated. The couple's rep released a statement to TMZ Monday morning that says "We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time." Sources tell TMZ Witherspoon has contacted celebrity divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman, who has represented Jennifer Aniston, Roseanne and Lisa Marie Presley. Sources say Witherspoon spoke with Kaufman about divorcing Ryan Phillippe, her husband of seven years. I'm utterly shocked ... this is such sad, sad news. Altho, I have been getting wind that there was something amiss in their marriage for some time now. Pink reader Lauren actually saw Ryan making out with some chick behind Reese's back in Texas just last week: Ryan Phillippe is in Austin right now filming a movie, I've seen Reese here once with Deacon. My friends and I went to Kenichi in downtown Austin on Tuesday night and sat 2 tables away from Phillippe and an extremely attractive blonde (not Reese). The couple had a partition placed around their table soon after they arrived but we could still see their legs intertwined under the table and as we left could see them clearly making out behind the partition. I really didn't want to believe it but it makes total sense now. Witherppe were prolly my fave celeb couple. They were so cute together. What a bummer. [Source]
